About this book
Digital cameras and flash technology have revolutionized photography. Originally seen simply as a way of illuminating dark scenes with portable light, flash today is used for a host of creative functions, including supplementing daylight and designing complex scenes lit by multiple light sources. Digital cameras with their preview screens make it easy to get instant feedback. But flash photography can still be a difficult artistic and technical challenge. It's simple to get that harsh deer-in-the-headlights look from built-in automatic flash, yet creating natural-looking images is not as straightforward. Manuals are terse and the terminology is confusing. This is where Mastering Canon EOS Flash Photographycomes in. This is the authoritative book on the subject, guiding you through Canon's Speedlite system, from off-camera portable flash to professional studio lighting. It covers the fundamentals of flash metering technology, discusses key lighting concepts, and documents a wide range of Canon and third-party equipment. Universal flash accessories, studio gear, and radio triggers are all thoroughly covered. The book is lavishly illustrated with diagrams that demonstrate important functions and lighting arrangements, and inspiring photos that show sophisticated flash techniques. Though tailored for users of Canon EOS cameras, owners of other camera systems will find much valuable information as well. So, whether you're just getting started with flash, whether you've picked up the bug for off-camera lighting from such popular websites as Strobist.com, or whether you're making the leap into advanced studio work, Mastering Canon EOS Flash Photographywill be your in-depth resource. Includes a foreword by David Hobby, noted photojournalist and founder of Strobist.com.

    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 "Rabid consumer" (Austin, TX USA) - See all my reviews, December 27, 2010

    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. The Sigma also entails far less button-pushing in order to get to desired... 5/5 Kayta PharmD - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    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. Again, however, I think they just sent another flash because now, the... 3/5 robmac - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    0 4/5 Richard (VA United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Sigma EF-610 DG ST Electronic Flash for Pentax Digital SLR Cameras (Electronics) Love this flash. I can only name two faults with it:1. It takes literally minutes to initially charge, even with fresh batteries. This is extremely annoying if I just want to grab the camera and take a quick shot.2. The interface is absolutely atrocious. Each mode has a use but they're unintuitive and the button interface is clunky. I don't expect a touch screen but it'd be nice if we'd progress a bit from 1980s watch designs.Works perfectly on my K-7.

    Legitimate 5-Star Product; read and see why

    First things first, I am a professional photographer (ALL of my income comes from my photography). I rely on my tools to function when I call on them to. I bought this as a supplement to my 430 EXII's, and intended on using this as an on-camera master to trigger the 430's as remote slaves. For this, the flash has worked perfectly. If you know how these systems function (i.e. This is line-of-sight, not a radio-trigger), and set up your lighting accordingly, the flash functions flawlessly. I've used this on 2 shoots in the first 3 days of having it and it's made my life easier and my lighting set-ups more versatile. I'm looking to get a speed ring to test this mounted onto a light stand and shoot with a soft box or beauty dish, just to compare it to set-ups more similar to Alien Bees. This has a portability advantage vs. AB's though, seeing as it's lightweight, easy to store and more importantly, battery powered.As to the battery aspect, this recharges far quicker than I... 5/5 Tony Ibarra - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

My local camera store sent it out for me to sigma for a replacement. I am glad it has a 3 year warranty.Compares to canon's 500 buck 580EX. Has high speed synch, multi-flash (strobe) manual, ETTL, auto zoom, slave mode, very quiet charge, seems rugged, although large. Can be used as a wireless master flash. Comes with a protective pouch and a stand for the flash in slave-mode (with 1/4-20 threads)I could not get the slave mode to cooperate with my cameras built in flash (ttl on camera pre-flashes for a milisecond to get light reading, triggering slave early)but i also really didnt try or read the manual. However it worked perfect with an external flash to trigger. Flash is VERY powerful and in most cases charges back up instantly. Has a built in diffuser panel also. 0, March 4, 2011
