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.

      Worked well with my Sony A700 and A900 but with my Sony A65 it over exposes and can't be controlled.

        Nice, cost competitive addition for macro work that is not otherwise well lit.

        Dedicated Sony/Minolta flash control module works as advertised with both my Maxxum 7D and Sony Alpha a700 and provides good TTL Auto exposure results with my Konica-Minolta AF 100mm f/2.8 macro lens. This lens is 55mm filter threads and included adapter matches it.

        Comments about Sigma EM-140 DG Macro Ringlight Flash for Sony Alpha & Minolta Maxxum:

        I bought the EM-140 DG Macro Ringlight flash in January 2012 for use with my Sony Alpha 700 and 100mm Sony Macro lens. I have frequently attempted to do some macro photography without the use of a dedicated macro flash and although the Sony Macro lens works perfectly well, lighting, or at least adequate lighting, of subjects have always been a problem.

        Not so with the new flash – it is simple and easy to use, got it working in no time and managed to take some very acceptable photos of a variety of subjects from the usual small flowers to insects in flight ! It was definitely worth the money spent and I wish I did this at the same time I bought the lens 2 years ago.

        My only real negative comment about the flash is the hotshoe connector – it feels very flimsy to say the least. The rest of the flashlight and controller is well built and sturdy though.

        My overall impression of the flash is very favourable and positive. I'd recommend the flashlight to anyone without reservation.

            On camera flash control has a cable to the front mounted lamps which conveniently screws into the front filter ring. Functions using Sony's ADI for excellent results. Also very useful is the normal light lamp which stays on for a short time while you compose a photo in total darkness.

              I use the EM-140 DG Macro for oral surgery pictures and I achieved the best pictures quality I have ever seen. For this pupose I recomend the "M" position with F:1/125 and A:32 - TTL function, fill flash and WB auto.
