Pretty nice for cheap flash

By Hsunflower78

Comments about Sigma EF-610 DG ST Flash for Sony/Minolta Cameras:

I purchased this flash as a back up for a wedding I got talked into shooting. I normally use a Sony F 58. The sigma was significantly slower than my Sony and didn't produce as bright of a flash. All in all did well for a backup and am pleased for the price! Will not use it for rapid sequence of needed flash.

Great buy on a spectacular flash!

Comments about Sigma EF-610 DG ST Flash for Sony/Minolta Cameras:

I haven't put this unit through its paces yet, but so far it works well with my Sony Alpha 100, and both my Minolta 7D and 5D cameras--as if it was a Minolta flash unit!

    Comments about Sigma EF-610 DG ST Flash for Sony/Minolta Cameras:

    The product is a good product. Great quality. The swivel and pivot along side the bounce and defuser are great added value for this unit. The only issue I have is that I wish it had a better instructions manual. The syncing of the unit to camera works when it wants and this can be on me but to a point I dont think so. It goes into a limp mode which decides it does not want to flash and I do not know how to fix it. Then I move things around then its "fixed" and it works again. I dont really understand it but when it is working it is great. Good power, great range, overall a good flash unit.
