    Sigma EF-610 DG Super reviews

    EF-610 DG Super Flash for Canon Cameras is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 41.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full function - Great Value I use this flash as a slave to a Canon ST-E2 for portrait photography and as an on-camera flash by itself on my Canon 50D. Simply, this does everything I want for half the price of the Canon equivalent. I must set high-speed sync and/or second curtain flash on the flash, rather than on my Canon 50D, but other than that it works as well as my 580EX II which is now relegated to use as a second slave. I read that the Sigma manual was hard to read, and I will not comment, as I did not bother reading the manual. It was intuitive enough to set up. Flash power is consistent and functions flawlessly with my camera in ETTL mode. I have not tried using flash ratios yet, so cannot comment on that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good! I bought this as an alternative to the Canon 580 EXII and have been pleasantly surprised. I sent an email to the Sigma website to ask about a flash shoe cable to use it away from the camera body and I was informed that it would not work, but when I got the flash and cable (I had already ordered them together), I tried and they work flawlessly! The metering works great and I have been using it manually at different ratios and it works great as well. Next up, buy another to use them together as a master and slave unit. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Light for any Price Although I am not quite a professional photographer I need my pictures to be professional quality. I take food photos for my blog and high resolution photos for a print magazine that I write for. The addition of the Sigma EF610 Super Flash for Canon has made quite a difference in the quality of lighting. I am thrilled. I had read many positive reviews which convinced me it was a great value. A couple of negatives that I read were that the battery cover seemed flimsy. I don't agree at all. Another reviewer said it didn't lock on the camera, but that is absolutely false. With the simple turn of a dial the light is securely attached to my Canon DSLR.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flash Great flash, easy to use and does everything it claims it does. I wish I hadn't bought my Canon 430EX-II because this flash will do more with more power and less cost.The buttons are much easier to press then the 430EX-II also.It works flawlessly with my Canon 60D's pop-up as the master, triggering the 430 EX-II and SIGMA EF-610 DG Super both acting as slaves. Main & Fill.The built quality is very good, not quite as good as Canon but very good none-the-less. My only gripe with the flash is red lettering on some of the upper row button is near impossible to read, SIGMA should have stuck with the white lettering through out. That is very easy to read.One more thing: B&H is a terrific company to deal with. I've placed 4 orders with them now to ship into Canada and they get it right and take care of the duty correctly everytime. Wish all companies were as easy to deal with as B&H. A true model many Corporations could learn from.Thanks B&H!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fairly Good Instructions are poorly written for user Shoe mount has no tightening mechanism and connection to camera is worrisome. Refuses to be fired with Cowboy Studio RF triggers would not work with NEX6 and multi-interface shoe adapter. On Sony Alpha55,works fine...wish connection to camera was more secure. I'm just starting to explore the capabilities of this old Vivitar 283 was much simpler to operate...this Sigma can do a lot more but the menu based controls are a bit frustrating...but thatll improve with time and use. This Sigma has huge potential...extremely vesatile.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value I just purchased the Sigma EF-610 DG Super flash for my Nikon D300s DSLR. So far it is working great and I'm very satisfied. Here are a couple of my initial experiences with this flash. (1) Before purchasing the Sigma EF-610 DG Super, I also looked into the following flashes before making my final decision: SB700, SB800, SB900 & Metz 58. The Sigma is competing with SB800/900 but with a lower price point. (2) I intend using this flash for family photos, occasional weddings, interior/architecture and caving where there is complete darkness and using color filters. (3) The Sigma feels solid, not flimsy at all and so far I have tried the following features: - Supports Nikon's CLS! (Creative Lighting System) - iTTL with flash mounted on camera: works as advertized - Ceiling Bounce, no problems from 10-20mm with an ultra wide angle lens. Not tested yet with my 70-200mm lens yet but not too concerned about that range either. - Wireless with D300s build in flash as commander: works great and allows creative shots! I tried this flash combined with a 10-20mm Sigma lens set at 10mm. When you pull out the build in flash diffuser, the flash automatically shows '17mm' mode in the lcd display but I didn't see dark edges or significant light falloff in the image. Pretty good! - Multiple flashes in one shot worked as advertized - Over/under expose settings are easy to set up - Full manual control works great - The LCD screen is very well readable and has a dedicated 'light' button which will give a nice green illumination for 8 seconds. - Dedicated 'mode' button to select iTTL, manual mode, wireless mode, multiple flash mode etc - Wireless mode easy to set up. - I was looking for accessories which seem hard to find initially but I was informed that the OM-C omni bounce should fit. - Also ordered a set of generic color photogels that can be attached to the flashhead. These are the only two accessoiries that I will need. (4) I'm using it together with 4 eneloop NiMh batteries and recycle time between shots is generally within 1-4 seconds, depending on whether you used a full 100% flash or just a fraction of the output (depending on light needed in iTTL mode). (5) I compared shots with my camera pop-up flash and the Sigma outclasses the pop-up flash - as expected. Light is more consistent, allows the use of an ultra wide angle lens and lights up interior spaces much farther so you don't have the 'dark' background. So even as a direct replacement for your occasional family shots, I believe it is worth while the investment. So far I have not found any issues. The flash also comes with a stand for wireless mode and a nice pouch. If you are on a budget but would like SB800/900 similar features and performance, this looks like a good alternative at a lower price point. Note: the flash does not come with any other accessories besides the pouch and stand. Cheers, Peter

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't judge a book by its cover I really like this flash its amazing. I have a few buddies with canon 580ex flash an i cant tell the difference in the image quality. So for half the price this flash is a great buy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flash, very pleased It does everything that my 430ex II does, and then some. It's about 1 to 1.3 stops brighter than my 430ex II It works perfectly with the 7D in cam TX.
