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

    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.

    Poor value for money

    0 1/5 April Vega (Seattle, WA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Covercraft Universal Pet Pad for Bucket Seat, Navy Blue (Automotive) After I purchased this, I felt like it was a waste of money. A blanket would have done just as well. I had a number of problems.First: There was only one strap to connect it to the seat, so it slid around quite a bit and was not terribly secure. I see that some people sewed on extra straps and such, but...eh, I was in the market for something complete.Second: The buckle on that strap broke after two days of use, rendering it useless.Third: During the two days of use, my dog hated it. It slid around on my leather seat and he could not get a grip on it, so he slid around too. Eventually he gave up on it and hopped into the wheel well and curled up there, refusing to slide around any more.I found a backseat cover made from a canvas-type material that secures in several places for a ridiculously low price at Ross and felt silly for even trying out this one. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 13, 2012
