Most Liked Positive Review

 

Great product at a reasonable price

I've read reviews that mentioned the build quality is not as good as Nikon's but this is my second Sigma, both have excellent built quality, and both are more powerful than their OEM counterpart, at significant lower prices. Not to mention Adorama threw in some freebies and had it delivered in about three days. Very satisfied with the product and service, definitely recommend to others who are looking for a powerful flash and save some money at the same time.

VERY Disappointed

Bought this because the Nikon Sb-900 is over-priced. The flash is powerful and seems to work well in TTL on-camera. But Off-Camera doesn't seem to work regardless of what settings I pick. The Menu sucks and is impossible to figure out - partially because the manual is written so poorly. I very likely will return this and pay the extra for the SB-900 to have something that easily works as a slave off-camera. VERY Disappointing Product !

I have seen the light...

By

from Fort Lauderdale, FL  -  Pro Photographer

...and it was BRIGHT! Does all the things the Pentax AF-540FGZ deos and almost all the things as the AF-540FGZ II does but slightly brighter and lower cost. To compare, it is far easier to say what it does not have: Weather resistance, modeling light, left swivel only 90° to the left (but 180° to the right). Both the AF-540FGZ & AF-540FGZ II swivel 135° to the left and the AF-540FGZ II is weather resistant and has an LED modeling/video light. If those are features you need, get the Pentax flash. I recommend you get at least one. If you want to save some money on one or two features you may not need, get the Sigma.

Good Flash

By

from Hanover, MD  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I am pleased with this flash. Easy to use. There are a lot of functions, I need to learn. However, for the purpose I neeed it for, it did the job. I would consider getting another flash of this quality.

Great value.

By

from Central PA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Prior to this purchase I had the standard EF 610 and still do. It does such a great job I decided to stay with the same when shopping for a high speed sync model. I bought this product for the high speed sync to shoot Friday night lights (high school football). It has worked flawlessly. The wireless flash capability has been great too with my Pentax K5.

Awesome flash unit!

By

from Marlboro, MA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Very powerful, strong mounting foot, excellent zoom tracking, excellent display and controls. Extra features of the Super model are something I could actually do without. So if I ever need to replace this unit, I would go for the standard version.

be careful

By

from california  -  Semi-pro Photographer

it is as powerful as advertised...blasts light everywhere, so you can use it on a light modifier like a Westcott Rapid Box (even with the diffusion panel on it) and get great results...takes a while to decipher the manual but it will do what it says...on the downside IT WILL NOT FIRE WITH NON TTL TRIGGERS (cowboy studio, pixel pawn)...I contacted Sigma and they confirmed the compatibility issues but "claim" it will work on Pocket Wizzards...the recycle time is slower than I would have liked and it will burn through your batteries because of the output...if you are going to use it on a ttl cord or on camera, then I'd say it's worth the money...otherwise, proceed with caution

Good Fit

By

from Panama City, FL  -  Photo Enthusiast

I always wanted a shoe mount flash to take more pleasing flash photos. I have several Sigma lenses for my Pentax cameras and they suit my needs. I was not disappointed with the Sigma flash. It does everything I want it to do. I am still experimenting with the flash unit, especially the off-shoe remote options.

As good as a 500 dollar Speed-lite.

By

from Las Vegas, NV  -  Pro Photographer

I usually use studio strobes. I really only use an on camera flash when I shoot events. I use this on an Alzo tilt bracket with an umbrella on a mono pod (the entire rig with a 5Dmk 2 is heavy). I need great output and fast recovery. This works.

Questions about this item:

B E  I am looking for a second flash to add to my systems. I currently have a Nikon D5000 and A D7100 and I also have the Nikon SB910 speedlight. Is this a good second flash to have??? Want one as close to the 910 as possible but also do not want to break the bank. If not this one can you recommend another.?? Thanks
Ray T  Very good
Shopper  I can not get the wireless to work with Nikon D7000. What am I doing wrong?
RICHARD H  You have to have your pop up flash up and operational to trigger the off camera flash. Start by putting the flash on your camera, turn both on, this will sync the camera and the flash. Then remove the flash from the camera, pop up your on camera flash, set your Sigma where you want it and shoot away. If you don't want to use the on camera pop-up flash, the only other option that I know of is a triggering device. I use the cowboy studio FM radio trigger. They aren't very expensive and work well.
josue A  Is this flash compliant with the Nikon D3100 & D40 ?
LOREE N  This works fine on my D300, it's the only camera I have. On Sigma's website, they have a compatibility chart that says the flash is compatible with the two cameras you are asking about.
