    It's okay, but not, in fact, super.

    This flash works on my Pentax K10D, but not without some caveats.First, the strengths:+ It's certainly more flash power than you can get for the money from the official Pentax line-up.+ Tilt and swivel head.+ It does a good job working with the K10D's TTL system -- exposure seems generally to be correct.+ Wireless P-TTL slave mode works great.+ Focus assist lamp is nice.And then, the negatives:- This is a huge flash. It's almost bigger than my camera body. The comparable is big too, but I'd trade off some flash power for the feature set in a more compact size.- The tilt head has a click-lock point at straight forward and at something like 70°-up and a few more between that and straight up -- but nothing at 30° or 45°,... 3/5 Matthew Miller (Boston, MA USA) - See all my reviews, February 12, 2008

    Better than Metz

    A year ago, I carefully read the reviews on the Metz, Sigma, and Pentax flashes and finally decided on the Metz 48 AF-1. The decision was made largely on the basis reports of poor build quality of the Pentax AF540 and the ease with which the Metz can be updated (ie, the flash's firmware may be updated for use with future cameras via USB connection, whereas the Sigma has to be sent back to Sigma). The Metz has been a good flash, however it's user interface is hardly intuitive. Occasionally I have had to spend several critical minutes fiddling with the interface only to have to finally dig up the manual to review how to make a particular setting. More recently, I found a great price on the Sigma 530 Super and decided to buy. Using the Sigma flash has been an eye-opening pleasure. It's interface is far superior and more intuitive than the Metz series of flashes and makes using flash all the more pleasurable.

    Good or Not?

    I bought this because the Sigma flash was cheap for the features and I am just starting out using flash. The flash has a lot of features and function but are somewhat difficult to access due to the somewhat less than thorough and poorly laid out manual and cryptic display.After about 6 months of light usage (pun not intended) the zoom stopped zooming. I sent it in for warranty repair and got it back quickly. It was working properly. Actually, I not sure I got the same flash back because the head's vertical adjustment seemed looser than before. It would stay where you put it as long as the camera didn't move abruptly--fine for tripod use.After about 14 months (again, light service) the flash stopped flashing except intermittently. I sent it back in knowing I would have to pay for repair since it was out of warranty. But, I got it back (again quickly) without charge. It was working properly.

    A great flash with a huge bang for the buck

    Though the menu interface is not as nice as others, and the buttons look like they were taken from an 80's era toy, and the fact that the plastic feels cheaper than other brands this flash can hold its own against the best Canon can through at it. I had a 580ex I and while it was nice it weighed about twice as much as this 530 and did not put out a noticeable amount of power beyond this. I tested the flash on both at various f stops and power levels using full manual shutter/fstop/iso and flash power levels and found that for each fstop/power level combo I used for the 580 that the 530 provided just as much light output and my pictures were just as bright, with a slight difference at full power with f18 or higher where the 580 did push a tiny bit more light into my shots, but it is not enough matter in ANY of the other shots.The recycle time is great on all but the 1/1 full power manual mode, where it is still better than a 580 or my 430 and heads and shoulders above a... 5/5 M.

    Mission Accomplished

    I've had this flash for about 45 days, and finally put it through its paces yesterday when I took approximately 600 flash photos at a father/daughter dance. In a little over 90 minutes, the flash happily illuminated some 300 portrait shots using the flash and a MilaGrid BounceGrid II (BG-2) as a diffuser.My sense is that the flash consistently took less than 2 seconds to recycle during this entire part of the shoot, and was often ready in a second or so (apparently it was not operating at close to its maximum power level). I could not bounce the flash due to the nature of ceiling, but the flash BounceGrid II combination produced very pleasing results.I changed the four Ni-MH batteries at this point (and the camera battery), though the flash batteries were still going strong, and finished the next two hours of the shoot on the next set. In other words, I took another 300 plus images of activities on the dance floor and elsewhere around the event at distances... 5/5 D. T.

    Great price for an average to decent flash.

    The singular rating system on Amazon will be misleading...I'll caveat my 5 star rating with the statement that the 5 stars is based not only on the price/function, but also for the 'mainstream' user. This flash is for those looking to get strong power output at a decent price. That said, this flash is not nearly as good, and not even in the same league as the Canon 580EX series. I've shot Nikon and Canon for over 2 decades. I've had and used a lot of different brands of flashes, Nikon (which I think are the best flashes out there-and before everyone accuses me of being a Nikon lemming...I'm a Canon shooter), Canon, Sunpak, Sigma, and Quantum Qflash. Let me break this review into sections:For the Pro shooter-This lacks a lot of features a pro would need. No external power option (quantum turbo battery), too few power level controls, no built in white card (Canon has one), and the wireless functions don't seem to work perfectly when pairing with Canon branded slave flashes... 5/5 Andrew Ma (Austin, TX USA) - See all my reviews, December 27, 2010

    I have an SB-600 as well as the ef-530 dg super and could not get the Sigma to work as a CLS slave until I found a link from another frustrated user who figure it out. It works great now, but only if you do the following:1) setup D7000 flash in commander mode and leave channel set on "1"2) turn off camera and mount ef-530.3) turn on camera and flash.4) press shutter half way to activate metering.5) while meter is active, quickly press the Sigma's Mode button until the screen shows up with "1 C1 Fx.x" on it. the 1 is the Group number (Group A on Nikon setup), and the C1 is the channel number. If you need to change the Group, press the SEL button until it starts flashing, use + - to select the right group, then press SEL until nothing is flashing.

    Pretty decent for the price

    4/5 Omar Iturbe - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Sigma EF-530 DG Super Electronic Flash for Nikon DSLR (Electronics) I just got this flash and ran a few tests. It is a pretty decent unit. The build quality is noticeably inferior to that in the nikon flashes, but the light is just as good as that from an SB 900. I can easily take the build quality difference for the enormous price drop. Other than that, the flash has worked flawlessly so far. A bit soon to tell how it works in the long run yet.I wished that they had put more tilt steps in the flash head. It has only two fixed positions, but I place it in between steps and remains there for my shooting, so it's not a huge problem. This, and a litle bit of awkwardness in the interface are the reasons why i dropped the stars to 4 I use it mostly as a slave unit and haven't encountered any problems.

    Not a worthy alternative to the Nikon SB-800

    Do yourself a favor...spend the extra $50 and get the Nikon SB-800 instead. I initially bought the Sigma EF-530 DG Super as a lower-cost alternative to the Nikon SB-800, and I regret it. I ended up buying the Nikon SB-800 after all.Any way I use this flash, either standalone on-camera, wireless master or wireless slave, I have to make manual adjustments to exposure because it always over exposes. In addition, as a wireless master, it often miscommunicates with the slaves, resulting in slaves firing at full power, not only over-exposing the subject, but also wasting battery life.To setup as a wireless slave, you must first attach the flash to camera, make your settings, then remove it from the camera. Then if you turn off the flash or accidentally press the "mode" button, you have to re-attach it to the camera and make all you settings all over again. Such a hassle.

    this amp works great for what I needed. I have a 200w RMS RE Audio RFX 10" sub and I wanted this to complement my stock sound system. I was looking for an amp with the "high level" inputs. so i could run speaker wire from my radio straight to my amp without a line level converter. you will get better sound this way by losing less signal. you must use well shielded pure copper speaker wire, because its easier to pick up interference this way. I have not had any interference issues. I used C&E 14AWG OFC speaker wire, with a Stinger 8 gauge OFC wire kit. I have the speaker wire ran right next to the power cable (this can cause alternator wine in cheaper cables) your system will only be as good as the wires you use.

    Good Bulbs

    I bought these for my 2006 Peterbilt 387, and while they do fit, it's hard to determine accurately how much brighter they are. What most people fail to understand about headlight bulbs is that they get dimmer over time, so I'f you're replacing a pair of bulbs you've had in your vehicle for a year or two, even the identical make and model bulbs will be brighter than the ones that have been in use for a long time. Without a light meter and a variety of brand new bulbs to compare, it really is impossible to accurately tell whether one bulb is brighter than another.I've put about 1,054,000 miles on my truck so far, and I've been through close to a dozen sets of headlight bulbs of varying makes and models, so I have a good point of reference, but I'd be lying if I said I could determine with certainty whether one bulb is better than another. With that being said, I do like these bulbs. The light they produce isn't as white as I'd like, but they do seem to be quite bright and... 4/5 Tim D.

    VW Passat TDI 2013

    These lights are tremendous. I wanted to get better headlights for my new car, the ones that come standard on the Passat are a little weak (actually really dull). At first I couldn't find these in stock anywhere onlne. So I settled for 'Philips H7 CrystalVision Ultra Headlight Bulb'. Which are excellent, much brighter bulb, and I was not disappointed with those.But after reading more reviews on X-Treme Vision H7 and how much this improved night vision, I really wanted these. Soon as they came in stock (month later) I bought these. I am not disappointed, these are really really good at giving better vision at night + they look good.I have never changed bulbs before, so I did a little research, and anyone in my shoes might want to read up on this first. You want to make sure you DO NOT touch the bulb. Cant not have any of the oil transfer from your fingers to the bulb. This will cause the bulb to burn out eventually.

    Brightest Headlight Bulbs from the Best: Philips!

    If you really are looking for the brightest light -- meaning more lumens on the road, buy from Philips! Their engineering is fantastic compared to all manufacturers in the market today. If want the cool factor and you're trying to imitate the white/bluish hue of HIDs, don't buy this product. Remember, the higher the Kelvin rating of your bulbs, the duller the actual lumen output. For example, Years ago most headlight bulbs averaged around 3000K to maybe as high as 3500K -- a bright yellow hue; then came along HIDS with 4300K -- bright white with still a little yellow; 5000K -- pure white; 6000K -- bright white with a little blue hue (the most popular of HID conversion kits); 8000K -- bright bluish hue and so on. The bulbs in the last sentence become duller and duller on the road. Unfortunately, many people are still purchasing colored halogen bulbs -- like the 9006 and 9005 bulbs with a claimed "HID-look" -- that appear slightly blue. They indeed are a little blue, but they... 5/5 JH Meyer (Sarasota, Florida) - See all my reviews This review is from: Philips 9006 X-tremeVision Upgrade Headlight Bulb (Pack of 2) (Automotive) If you really are looking for the brightest light -- meaning more lumens on the road, buy from Philips!

    Good price for the features offered, know it's limitations!

    Pros: price, both USB & SD(HC), id3 tag display, and sound quality. Cons: crappy docmentasen [sic;], warranty will cost you, and the mp3 read order. I did the research and knew what to expect for the price I was willing to pay. The unit therefore meets my needs; the sound exceeded my expectations. I was pleasantly surprised that it takes 8GB SDHC media. Not so happy that it did not have standard mounting screw holes, in fact no mounting holes; easy to fix. One of my dislikes is that mp3 files are read in the order written to the USB/SD, not in alpha-numeric order. It therefore requires a bit of planning when putting a larger number of folders (albums) on the device (and even more planning for Mac users...hint rsync really helps!). Nice ability to skip forward & backwards by ten songs or by an entire folder (album), and doesn't have a problem with nested folders, but remember it plays files in the order written, not in the order your file system might show them to you!

    Good System

    5/5 Joseph Dizon - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: BOSS AUDIO 612UA Single-DIN MECH-LESS Receiver (Wireless Phone Accessory) I installed this on a 2000 Oldsmodbile Alero and I had no issues. Just made sure that I matched the color connectors and hooked it up with the existing harness and voila, it worked. Also purchased an auxiliary cable to hook up with MP3 player and it worked like a charm. Lots of powers (200W) and could receive AM/FM signals. This unit has no CD player and is replaced by an SD Card which is fine. CD's are almost the thing of the past. All in all, I recommend this Boss 612UA car stereo/mp3 player/am/fm receiver.

    5/5 Luke - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: BOSS AUDIO 612UA Single-DIN MECH-LESS Receiver (Wireless Phone Accessory) The whole time i thought this was a BOSE stereo system until i actually received this product and started reading the user manual lmao! I felt like such an idiot! How could i of read BOSE from BOSS. Maybe a psychological marketing technique...anyways, this stereo was super easy to install along w/ the installation kit from metra in my 2007 350z base model. I was so bummed that it wasn't an actual BOSE stereo but wow this BOSS system worked surprisingly well! A hell of a lot better than the OEM CD/radio stereo in my z! I know that this is on the lower end of stereos but for the price, well worth it! I could care less about the horrible OEM speakers in my z and I'm probably not ever going to get a better sound system so thats why i chose this cheap(price) stereo. At least i could listen to my music on my phone via AUX cable., January 29, 2015
