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.

    Sigma ef-530 dg super with Nikon D7000

    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. Remember, you need to do all of this while the camera is still metering for the shot, so keep pressing the shutter down half way while you are making changes to the flash.6)This is the last and most... 4/5 Mike - See all my reviews This review is from: Sigma EF-530 DG Super Electronic Flash for Nikon DSLR (Electronics) 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.

    Pretty decent for the price

    0 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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 11, 2011

    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. In comparison, the Nikon SB-800 or SB-600 can be setup as a wireless slave without having... 2/5 Amazon Customer (California USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Sigma EF-530 DG Super Electronic Flash for Nikon DSLR (Electronics) Do yourself a favor...spend the extra $50 and get the Nikon SB-800 instead.

This review is from: Sigma EF-530 DG Super Electronic Flash for Sigma DSLR (Electronics) I purchased a Sigma SD14 earlier this year and purchased this flash to go with the camera. I am very pleased with this flash unit; very powerful and full-featured.But what I'm most pleased with is the service I get from Amazon!I received this flash and after a couple of days noticed the infared focus assist was not working. I emailed Amazon on Saturday and had the new flash on Wednesday, and the new flash works perfectly!The process of returning items purchased from Amazon is GREAT!

    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.
