      It almost has too much power , what I like is the fact in auto the ttl is great, only had it for a few weeks.A few pictures had too much flash until I tried to swivel the flash head side to side. That did the trick. As soon as it was hooked on to the shoe, the af and the ttl responded in sink.
      It's not to heavy,it fits in my camera bag nicely.It works exceptionally well in total darkness.

      The positive reviews for this flash must be based on only the most basic functions. On my A77, the flash had to be in FP mode for correct exposure, but FP was canceled when the head was tilted or swiveled, resulting in over-exposures. Direct flash exposures were inconsistent as well. The test button and modeling light worked only when the flash was not on the camera. I returned it to Sigma and they sent it back to Japan because their replacement units worked the same way. Eventually they sent me a replacement that was recalibrated for bounce, but direct flash exposures were wrong. I returned it again and finally received a refund -- apparently an admission that Sigma could not make the flash work with the A77. At least they stood behind their product.

      Compatibility issue with Sony A77

          Comments about Sigma EF610 DG Super Flash for Sony DSLR Cameras:

          I just received this flash recently and started playing with it using my Sony A77.

          I tried TTL mode with camera auto setting, and this makes photos always over-exposed. Then switched to Manual camera setting but kept TTL for the flash; for the few first shots, I managed to expose properly my photos, then for some unknown reasons, using same setup, my photos became very under-exposed?! weird!?

          The build quality of this flash is average; the bounce card doesn't stay in position and slides in as soon as I tilt the flash 90deg vertically.
          It also happened to me few times when I open the battery compartment, the lid just comes in my hand free. So now I learned to gently open it and be carefully, because it is a bit of pain to put it back in place.

          The recycle time is so long! I am using 2850mAh fully charged battery and sometimes takes 7-8 seconds to recharge.

          The zoom motor is so slow and creeps like hell!

          Sadly, I ordered this product before another customer posted his review regarding incompatibility with A77.

                Powerful and simple to use.
                At first, the instructions looked daunting but just mount it on the camera and play. Great results and simplex.
                However, no battery orientation shown on the flash..need to observe the contact pattern in the battery pocket for orientation.
                I feel the instruction sheet could be better and offer more usage tips for a beginner.

                  Being able to tilt down for closeup work was an unexpected bonus that I didn't catch while reading up before purchasing. Works well in all modes both on and off camera.

                    I purchased this for school play and of course for other events. Haven't had it very long. It really put the light where I needed it. As in the past when went to school functions my flash that is built on my camera, I would take pictures (but it was a waste of time),as subjects weren't visible.
