  • Excerpt: This is a very powerful flash and I suspect its more powerful than its guide number suggests. It does every-thing you could ask of it very competently but it does have some flaws. For such a power hungry beast it needs an external power- pack but there is no provision to connect one,the instructions are so bad they may as well not provide them and the build quality could be better especially the battery door.
  • Pros: Powerful, cheap
  • Cons: Bulky, power hungry

Sigma EF-530 DG Super review by dupmeister

  • Summary: excellent flash for the money. I needed a quality and versatile flash for my Sony A100 and A700, but I did not want to spend the $500 Sony is asking for their top of the line flash. this flash delivers, itas very easy to use, just turn it on and it does most of the work for you, your subjects come out evenly exposed every time. I just did a portrait shoot using this model wirelessly attached to an umbrella, it worked like a charm, 100 shots and all perfect.
  • Pros: powerful, easy to use
  • Cons: does not accept external power packs,

  • Summary: For Canon users on a budget these guns will do just about everything that Canon's flagship gun will do but at about half the price - you can pick these up for about £165 in the UK. The build quality isn't up to a Canon and the userface is a little complicated to start with but like most things you get used to it after a while. The exposures are consistant and very nicely balanced.

  • Summary: Som blixt fungerar den utmärkt för mig som hobby-fotograf. Ett minus är att reglaget för av/på fungerar dåligt med vantar på. Reglaget för att justera vinkel fungerar nog med höst/vår-vantar men sämre med tjockare vantar för vinterbruk.

  • Summary: direi un ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo, anzi piu che ottimo, accoppiato ad un diffusore diventa davvero un grandissimo compagno di avventure per ritratti e tanto altro. comunica benissimo con la 400D e per di piu l'ho testato col tokina messo sui 12 mm in una stanza completamente buia e l'ha illuminata completamente senza nessuna vignettatura ed a iso 100 f8 ed 1/200 quindi diciam una condizione quasi impossibile.
  • Pros: è un faro non un semplice flash, riesce a coprire focali superiori ai 17mm, solido e robusto
  • Cons: e molto grande, canon 580, benq a generatore broncolor (ma questa è un altra storia), non ancora

  • Excerpt: Нормальная вспышка при хороших аккумуляторах. Перезаряжается не мгновенно, но хватает. В-основном зависит от аккумуляторов - жрет их быстро. Первые часа 1,5 на свежих - работает быстро. Иногда бывают глюки - то пересвет, то недосвет. Так как бью в основном в отраженном свете - сложно предугадать сразу мощность света. Или у меня мозги не автоматические. Поэтому каждый раз пристреливаюсь раза 3. Меню не удобное - сразу сложно разобраться в куче знаков.
  • Pros: Работает уже 2 года.
  • Cons: Меню управления не очень. Нет индикатора батареи.
