WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT FOR PENTAX K-30

Adorama
1 February 2014
  • Excerpt: The flash would not fit onto the camera--I measured the piece on my Pentax with the base of the flash and the flash attachment site was much larger. I pushed and pushed and it finally went on--then I had just as bad a time getting it off. I thought---why ruin my camera because this dog won't fit? so it went back to Adorama the next day. I TRUSTED ADORAMA AND THIS WAS A REAL LET DOWN--MY FIRST ONE WITH THEM.

First time see such bundling

Yakov, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I purchased this device for my Canon T4i.Guys, I was stupid. You know why? Because it has a stand with it. I planned to use it as a wireless device but IT DOES NOT have such a function. Yes, I am stupid, I should have read carefully. But the most beautiful thing is this. I called to Sigma and asked them about this stand. If the device can not provide wireless function, what is the purpose of the stand? The answer was: we put this stand to every case. Amazing.
  • Pros: Powerful Output
  • Cons: Heavy, Slow Recycling

Not a Reliable Flash

Magnum, Adorama
18 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Can't recall where I order this unit from but it came with a set of batteries that after one week were leaking so not 100% sure my problems are not related but I have cleaned all batt connections.This flash cycles real slow and for me will not work with anything other than Alkaline batteries with 1.5V, using NiMh 1.2V the unit will not power on at all.The battery door is weak and has came loose on my the day I got the flash.
  • Cons: Slow Recycling

Lots of power, but no cigar!

  • Excerpt: The Sigma EF610 DG ST has a guide guide number which gives you big powerful light,but the quality of the light is awful. It's like standing in front of a car headlight.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Powerful Output

Unreliable, Unpredictable, and Underpowe

  • Excerpt: I used this flash for one event before returning it. The TTL metering was all over the place, recycle time even with fresh batteries was abysmal, and on top of all that, halfway through the event, it stopped working altogether. I returned it and bought a 430EXII.
  • Pros: Attach Securely
  • Cons: Flimsy, Loses Charge Quickly

Broke before I even turned it on.

  • Excerpt: I bought this as a backup to my 580 EX II. I was a little disapointed in the feel of the unit as soon as it came out of the box. Just didn't feel as sturdy as it should have for the money. I loaded the batteries in it, went to close the batter compartment door and it snapped off. You can hear part of the plastic rattling around inside the flash. I'll be returning it tomorrow and not re-ordering.

Returned due to poor performance

27 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Save yourself some time and just move on. I purchased 2 while they were on sale and I guess you get what you pay for. Manual is very confusing. Performance is horrible. Tried them as off camera flash for a shoot- could not get them to work with CLS- switched to manual power- Flash output inconsistent from shot to shot. Mis fired constantly. Sent them back today[...
  • Cons: Confusing manual, Inconsistent Output, Misfires

Nicht passgenau, sitzt nur auf Spannung

Meyer, Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: Wir würden den Diffusor lieber schnellstens zurück senden. Das können wir aber leider auf Grund von mangelnden Alternativen momentan nicht. Er muß mit sanfter "Gewalt" auf den Blitz gedrückt werden und sitzt trotzdem nicht vernüftig auf. An den Seiten "beult" er förmlich auf! Wir werden uns nach einem passenden Universalbouncer umsehen. Hier können wie KEINE Kaufempfehlung aussprechen. Sehr schade.

SIGMA EF-610 DG

Axel B. Bott, Amazon
24 February 2014
  • Summary: Absoluter Minimalismus an Funktion und Zuverlässigkeit. Nicht zu empfehlen - rausgeschmissen Geld. Leistung mag zwar interessant sein wenn sie funktioniert, nicht aber das Produkt.

  • Excerpt: Если хотите танцы с бубном,то эта вспышка вам в помощь, очень завышенная цена для такой вспышки.
  • Pros: Неплохое качество изготовления
  • Cons: Люфтит, пересветы, постоянно открывается крышка для батареек, долгий перезаряд около 7-10 секунд,уходит постоянно в какой то спящий режим,помогает только вкл/выкл.
