Very Nice Macro Ringflash

  • Summary: Sigma's very fine flash equipment has transferred to this ringflash. I suppose one could use if for general flash, but it's made for macro shooting. Often, standard shoe-mounted flash doesn't light the subject evenly, and my 105mm Micro-Nikkor usually casts it's shadow right where I want the light. I'd always wanted a ringflash to make outdoors macro shooting a bit easier.
  • Pros: High quality, accurate, many lighting options, manual operation, mounting options
  • Cons: Shoe seems a bit weak

Great Flash for Macro

  • Summary: Sigma EM-140 macro ring flash is great for closeup photography. It has many flexible functions and provides a powerful flash. I mostly use the manual mode, which allows firing the left and right tubes separately and power adjustments from 1 to 1/64. It is fully compatible to my Nikon D200, and also uses a convenient source of power - 4 AA batteries. Highly recommend!
  • Pros: Creativity, flexible functions, strong flash light
  • Cons: None

Sigma EM-140 DG TTL Macro Ringlight Flash

  • Summary: The results are good. Since it has 2 flashtubes you could create some shadows when you want to avoid a flat result. But I can imagine that for ex a dentist likes an even result... than this is the perfect flash. I believe you can be creative with this flash and I would say this Sigma flash delivers a superb quality for its money! So my advice, buy with confidence, you will be amazed with the results! TTL works great as well!
  • Pros: Cost, Quality, 2 flash tubes.
  • Cons: Not wireless... but it does not bother me...
