The Sigma EM-140 DG Ring Flash is ideal for photographing subjects in fine detail - close-up photography - and is extremely effective for scientific and medical applications.

Dual flash tubes can fire simultaneously or separately. Using only one flashtube creates modeling, which can give a three-dimensional feeling to the subject. The Modeling Flash function makes it possible to check for reflections and shadows before actually taking the flash picture.

A wireless flash function is also available, where the EM-140 DG is used as master and the EF-500 DG Super as a slave unit for creating fine shadow details. High Speed Synchro and Exposure compensation functions are also available for advanced flash photography.

    Virtually the same as the Canon system for $100 less. Fast recycle times, good ergonomics, deep features andcontrol to let you vary power or turn of lamps. Feels like asuperior product, build quality is excellent. Adapter ringsare used by retractable grips which make it a breeze todetach the front flash element, great innovation system there.Comes with a bag of very high quality, great addition to analready excellent package.Highly recommended for portraits and specialty Macro work.

    Expertise: Photo Professional

    Problems Encountered: It would be a good add on to have an AF assist beam, but Iguess that's not the primary use of this flash. AF is speedywith the 30D.Could have a bit more rings than the included two, speciallysince its a grooved system.Manual could be a little more specific on how to turn lampson or off but eventually you figure it out.

    Previous Equivalent Item Owned: Canon, Phoenix and Sunpak Flashes

    Items I Recommend: More adapter rings and spare sets of AA NiHM Batteries.

    I bought this ringflash to replace a Sunpak DX-12R, which worked fine, but was getting long in the tooth and lacked TTL. As the other reviewer mentions, the biggest drawback to this ring flash is the light does not output in a ring, but rather, it bursts from two small spots on either side of the ring-shaped lens adapter. Not only do you not get the "ringflash effect", but you don't get a 360 degree light field on your subject. I shoot insects in the field and a 360 degree light source is essential. The focus assist lamps are weak to say the least and add little to the ability to focus reliably. I found that my once accurate lens struggled to grab a focus point with the meager light coming from this unit. It may be great for portraits and fill-flash work, but in the field and real macro work (not including maxillo-facial and dental photography) this just wasn't what I was looking for. The build quality was excellent, and I liked the all in one construction, but the lighting effect was too meager for my purposes. I'll be listing it on [...] shortly as I'm past the 30-day limit at B&H, otherwise I'd return it for store credit!

      Comments about Sigma EM-140 DG Macro Ringlight Flash for Canon EOS:

      I work in the food industry and this flash is great for taking "beauty shots" of food for publication. It takes the shadows out where you need to and can give you a "three dimensional" appearance as well!

      Macro Flash Adapter size change-Not Good

            Comments about Sigma EM-140 DG Macro Ringlight Flash for Canon EOS:

            I recently purchased the EM-140 DG Macro Ringlight Flash for Canon EOS by Sigma...After installing the batteries, I pulled out the adapter rings to fit on my new Canon 100mm Macro lens which takes a 58mm size filter. Unfortunately, Sigma has stopped bundling a 58mm size in with the 55mm size. I found this out by a yellow piece of paper inside the box telling me that they are now bundling 62mm in with the 55mm. So now I have to order a 58mm adapter to be able to use my ring light. VERY DISAPPOINTED that this has occurred...not to mention being out extra dollars for the part and shipping/handling costs. Since I am not yet able to use the tool, I am giving it a 1 star....maybe after I get the adapter I need, I will change my mind on the rating.

            This perfectly serves my purposes. I use this for dental photography, and the photos are great. I have read complaints that this ring flash is not a "true" ring flash, but rather, it has two flashes on opposite sides of a circular design. For me, this is enough, but make sure you know what you are buying.

            I'm new to macrophotography and this is my first foray into the specialty equipment. There is an obvious learning curve but that's to be expected. I'm sure there are plenty of features I've yet to learn and/or understand with this flash.

                This is not a real ring flash, it's simply 2 flash lights put together right and left. A ring flash is a flash with one round light that gives a continous even shadow, this Sigma flash gives 2 shadows, one on the right side and one on the left, and the result is not the same as what one gets with a real ring flash.

                A bit on the heavy side.

                        Very easy to use, easy setup, and very high quality lighting for portraits. Easy to create my own effects with individual settings for left and right lighttubes. Two tumbs up!
                        One little drawback, though: the adapter ring has no possibility to attach a filter on the outside. This means you have to set the adapter outside of the filters, and this makes it difficult to control the settings with an adjustable filter type.

                                I've been using this flash for close-up portraiture and it has a surprising amount of power AND battery life.

                                    This is a great accessorie for Macro photography, I'm a medical photographer and this is a must have. It is a little fragile, plastic hot shoe. just be carefull.

                                      I'm not getting the pupil round reflection i was expecting, for close up bracket exposures it works great. i just got it but so far i'm happy with the purchase.

                                      Use it for Macro. Have tired it with a 60mm and 180mm lens on my Cannon 60D. Worked as described right out of the box. No problems.

                                            I use this flash along with a Sigma 105mm macro lens and a Canon T1i body to take intraoral and portrait photographs. It works very well for this purpose, and I would happily buy it again if I need another one.
