Japanese manufacturer Nissin Digital have announced a newly designed speedlight, the MG8000 Extreme, and claims it's capable of 1,000 consecutive flashes without overheating due to it's ceramic insulation, a quartz-based flash tube (more like those found in studio lights), a glass screen to protect the lens from heat and it's use of air vents.
If all the claims are true, the MG8000 is designed to outperform industry leading strobes such as Nikon's SB-910 and Canon's 580EX II. Cycling at 3 seconds for the first 200 shots and then increases to 7 second cycles, without a reduction in light intensity. The MG8000 Extreme utilizes a full color display, tilting/swiveling head, a metal hot shoe foot, wireless control, a secondary fill flash, zoom from 24 to 105mm, adjust intensity down to 1/128 of full power and fully Nikon/Canon TTL compatibility. Estimated price range is approximately $625US. The MG8000 Extreme huh... well the name could use some work. Which is maybe why many have already dubbed it the "machine gun" of flashes.
