    How did I live this long without a speedlight? Still fiddling with the settings and learning all the tricks, but this is a great addition to anyone's "tool kit." Seems fairly sturdy and the carrying case is of decent quality, too. Does get a little top-heavy, but worth every extra ounce.

    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.

                  Comments about Sigma EF-610 DG ST Flash for Canon Cameras:

                  As a budding pro photographer, I was looking for an external flash for my Canon Rebel T3. Value, flexibility, and TTL were my biggest concerns. The Canon flashes offer all these things, but the price is very high for my budget. The Sigma flash rated very high and the product reviews by other customers were excellent to go through and get an idea of what I was purchasing. The Sigma did not disappoint! The flash is durable, quick to recycle, easy to use (TTL, yeah!). The bounce and tilt are great features that I use all the time. I use the flash for almost all inside shooting, and will also use for exterior portraiture to fill in dark shadows, etc.

                    I got this just in time for Christmas "get togethers" and I am just thrilled with its performance. I love being able to bounce the flash to reduce the harsh shadows. Really like the attached diffuser as well.

                          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.

                                Its amazing to realize there are reliable options out there for use "non-professional" photographers. I don't want to spend as much on a tilt/swivel flash as I do on a LENS. Works great for me, has improved my photos tremendously!

                                  Comments about Sigma EF-610 DG ST Flash for Canon Cameras:

                                  Flash worked great in every mode but TTL. Tried several of them at the local photo shop on my Canon 60D and all were the same! The auto zoom would shift all over the place and produce underexposed pictures. Overall the flash is good just beware if you have a 60D.

                                    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.

                                      - Worked very well for me in photographing an indoor event
                                      - Has built in diffuser which works well, however in lower light be sure to remove as pictures will still seem dark even using flash
                                      - Very good flash at a reasonable price
                                      - worked good in both indoor and as outdoor fill flash
