Product Description

Style: Sony Digital SLR Cameras

The EF-610 DG SUPER features a powerful Guide Number of 200ft / 61m and is designed to work with the latest TTL auto exposure systems of all popular digital and film SLR cameras. The autozoom function automatically sets the optimum illumination angle in accordance with the lens' focal length in a range from 24mm to 105mm. When the built-in Wide Panel is used, the flash can cover an angle of 17mm. For bounce flash, the flashgun head can be tilted up by 90 degrees, to the left by 180 degrees, or to the right by 90 degrees. It can also be tilted down by 7 degrees allowing ease of use for close-up photography. Among the advanced features of this flash is a modeling flash function, multi-pulse flash, TTL wireless flash, FP (high speed) flash, rear-curtain Synchro flash and manual flash mode, which allows the photographer to set the flash power level by up to eight stops. The Auto Power-Off function automatically shuts off the LCD panel to help save battery power. When the flashgun is fully charged, a confirmation 'ready' light will be emitte

I am very satisfied with the flash.

I could take a picture with my old flash and then duplicate the settings on it with the Sigma if I manually adjusted the zoom to the correct settings.

Always looking for a great buy, and knowning Sigma products from lenses I have from that fine company, I decided to go with the Sigma flash.

First things first, I am a professional photographer (ALL of my income comes from my photography). I rely on my tools to function when I call on them to. I bought this as a supplement to my 430 EXII's, and intended on using this as an on-camera master to trigger the 430's as remote slaves. For this, the flash has worked perfectly. If you know how these systems function (i.e. This is line-of-sight, not a radio-trigger), and set up your lighting accordingly, the flash functions flawlessly. I've used this on 2 shoots in the first 3 days of having it and it's made my life easier and my lighting set-ups more versatile. I'm looking to get a speed ring to test this mounted onto a light stand and shoot with a soft box or beauty dish, just to compare it to set-ups more similar to Alien Bees. This has a portability advantage vs. AB's though, seeing as it's lightweight, easy to store and more importantly, battery powered.

As to the battery aspect, this recharges far quicker than I expected it to. In fact, i swapped out the expensive Lithium Extreme batteries (that I bought for $2 a battery) and started using cheap Costco AA's on the second day because this recharged so quickly. I'm not an electrical engineer, but I didn't notice much difference in performance between the two and I was shooting for an hour and a half at 1/4-1/2 power the entire time.

In conclusion, if I had to make a complaint, it would be that the + and - buttons feel reversed to me (the '+' is on the left, '-' on the right; it's counter-intuitive) and the zoom button is a progressive step (24-28-35-50-70-85-105) and not a single 'push and select' that then takes + & - inputs.

I am a portrait/wedding professional, our full time studio does a lot of weddings and that is what we use this flash for. We have a couple Canon 580 flash unites that work great but being a cheep guy I am always looking for something for less. I have a couple of Nissan flash unites dedicated to Canon but have found that they have a terrible auto focus assist lights. With the Nissan there just about useless in dark lighting where the camera can't auto focus itself. With the Sigma EF-610 it is just the opposite, auto focus assist is as good or better then the Canon 580.. Battery usage is very good, accuracy of exposure is also good. Only problem I would note is that you can't see the little diagram that tells you how to put the batteries in very well, especial in low light. I would recommend this flash as a replacement for the Canon 580 at just about half the price. I am going to get another one.

EDIT: With moderate use the zoom feature stopped working on this flash unit. My local camera store sent it out for me to sigma for a replacement. I am glad it has a 3 year warranty.

Compares to canon's 500 buck 580EX. Has high speed synch, multi-flash (strobe) manual, ETTL, auto zoom, slave mode, very quiet charge, seems rugged, although large. Can be used as a wireless master flash. Comes with a protective pouch and a stand for the flash in slave-mode (with 1/4-20 threads)I could not get the slave mode to cooperate with my cameras built in flash (ttl on camera pre-flashes for a milisecond to get light reading, triggering slave early)but i also really didnt try or read the manual. However it worked perfect with an external flash to trigger. Flash is VERY powerful and in most cases charges back up instantly. Has a built in diffuser panel also.

You get what you pay for. I shoot with a Canon 580 EX and a 430 EX and decided to give this flash a shot. At roughly half the price of the Canon 580 EXii with similar specs (guide number, recycle rate, size, weight) it looks too good to be true. When I received the flash I immediately thought to myself oh no. It looks and feels cheap. When going to put in batteries I snapped the door off. I popped it back in place but it is very cheap and hard to open/close without the feeling of it breaking. There is no plug on the flash to connect an external battery source which is a bummer.

Now to performance. The flash works o.k. Photos all come out with a cool temp. and underexposed about a stop. After shooting a couple of weddings with it, the flash decided to not work all of a sudden. I changed batteries, turned it off and on a few times and it started working. Next wedding it did the same thing but never started working again. Same thing, it turned on, sounded and looked ready but no flash, not even the test flash. I figured it had a wire problem or something since it was new.

I sent it in to Sigma under warranty and they said the outer casing was cracked and the "main PCB restore needs replacing". Repair $90. I wish I had taken a picture of the flash before sending it out cause there was no damage and it had never been impacted. After a handful of frustrating messages trying to find out what "main PCB restore" was that needed replacing with Becky G. I finally received a call. The lady told me the same thing as the emails and to pay $90. I tried to ask her what the "main PCB restore" thing was all about and she hung up on me. I called back and found out it was Becky G. again. All in all I am selling this flash and never using it again.
