Product Information
Description

Commercial Portrait and Travel Photographer Tommy Reynolds demonstrating how he uses the Pixapro Li-ION580 Speedlite on a day to day basis.

The PIXAPRO® Li-ion580 Speedlite is a Powerful i-TTL compatible speedlite and is one of the first to use a rechargeable 2000mAh Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) rechargeable battery. Since it is powered by a Li-ion battery as opposed to AA batteries, it has ultra-fast recycling times of just 1.5 seconds at full power with virtually no slowdown as the power as the battery power diminishes.  The battery can power up to approximately 650 full-power flashes per charge, removing the need for bulky external battery packs, or a bags of AA batteries.

It features a user-friendly interface, with a large LCD screen with large, easy to access buttons and a control dial, which allows you to quickly and easily adjust your flash settings.

The PIXAPRO® Li-ion580 ITTL Speedlite is fully i-TTL compatible, and will work automatically with Nikon’s i-TTL compatible DSLR Cameras. It can be used as a Master Flash giving you full control of other i-TTL Slave-capable speedlites in up to three groups A, B and C). It can command other Li-Ion580 I-TTLs, as well as Nikon i-TTL compatible series speedlites, with a slave option, such as the Nikon SB910, SB900, SB800, SB700 SB600 etc.

The Li-ion580 ITTL also has Slave functionality, allowing it to be triggered and controlled wirelessly off-camera by other Li-Ion i-TTL’s, or Nikon Speedlites with a Master flash mode such as the SB910, SB900 and SB700 etc. It can also be triggered and controlled by your camera’s Pop-Up flash if it has flash commander capabilities such as in the Nikon D800/800E, D600/610 and D7000/7100 etc.

The Li-ion580 ITTL also has other features usually associated with i-TTL compatible flashes, including High-Speed Sync (up to 1/8000 sec), Second-Curtain Sync, Flash-Exposure Compensation, and Flash Exposure Bracketing (up to 3 stops).

The PIXAPRO® Li-ion580 ITTL Speedlite has an 8-stop power range (1/1 to 1/128 power) adjustable in 1/3 stop increments, with flash durations between 1/300 second to 1/20,000 second (dependant on flash power output) which opens up a whole world of possibilities. It also features a variety of different flash modes. This includes a multi-flash mode, which can be set to between 2 and 100 flashes at a frequency between 1 and 199Hz (flashes per second), which allows you to create many different effects such as stroboscopic photography.

The Li-ion580 ITTL is also compatible with the PIXAPRO® ST-I 16 Channel Radio Speedlite Trigger set, allowing you to trigger your flash, and control the flash power remotely from the transmitter, (does not transmit TTL information) allowing it to be used in conjunction with the PIXAPRO Li-Ion580 manual flash, as well as other flashes in the Pixapro Range such as the PowerCore, Storm and Lumi flashes. It also features a micro USB socket, which allows you to update the Speedlite’s firmware as it becomes available (Micro USB cable not included).

This is the Speedlite that both amateur and professional photographers have been waiting for a long time.

PIXAPRO® Li-ION580 ITTL Speedlite with Rechargeable Battery & High-Speed Sync (For Nikon)

Amazing piece of kit The battery lasted me a full wedding shoot and two events before recharging - it didn't even really need it then 100 fire rate and no degredation of recycle time as the battery power reduces. I can stick my camera in drive mode and the flash keeps up with it. I would highly recommend this product. I will be buying another for my other camera.

PIXAPRO® Li-ION580 ITTL Speedlite with Rechargeable Battery & High-Speed Sync (For Nikon)

Great value does exactly what is said on the tin

Great Flash

This is a super flash which works really well on my Nikon D750. I use it in the ITTL mode off-camera for property interiors and find it syncs well with the camera allowing me to adjust it easily from the camera position, whilst providing plenty of power output. The battery life is also proving to be a real bonus as I no longer have to be worrying about carrying all those re-chargeable ones with me.

Questions & Answers

Answer:

It sounds like your camera may be set to Red-Eye Reduction mode. When in this mode, your speedlite will rapidly flash which is used to close the pupils of your subject to reduce or eliminate red-eye). Please ensure that the Red-Eye reduction is disabled in your camera settings

Answer:

This symbol relates the master flash function of the speedlite to turn this off simply hold down the "mode" button for 2 seconds or more and the symbol should now disappear.

Answer:

Yes the Li-Ion580 ITTL speedlite is capable of Rear Curtain/Second Curtain sync.

Please see image below to see how to switch the master flash on and off. (Also on Page 12 of the User Manual)

Answer:

If the zoom is stuck at 14mm, the chances are that the Wide-Angle diffuser isn’t in properly (as shown in the photo below). If you pull the diffuser out, and then push it back in all the way (please listen for the small click sound), that should solve the problem

Wide Angle Diffuser

Answer:

The chances are that you have your master flash switched off. You have the option to switch the master flash to off for situations where you don't want the light from our on-camera flash to affect your carefully placed slave flashes.

It will fire a pre-flash (which may cause you to think that it is firing), but it won't fire when the main flash that affects the exposure of the scene fires.

Please see image below to see how to switch the master flash on and off. (Also on Page 18 of the User Manual)
