New! EF-530 DG Super - Advanced
features and high performance with a powerful Guide Number of 53.
EF-530 DG SUPER features a powerful Guide Number
of 53 and is designed to work with the latest TTL auto exposure systems of all
popular manufacturers digital and film SLR cameras. It features TTL automatic
flash exposure control for easy operation.
Autozoom function for changing the
This function automatically sets the optimum illumination angle in accordance
with the lens' focal length, in a range from 24 mm to 105 mm. When the built-in
Wide Panel is used, the flash can cover the angle of up to that of a 17mm lens.
Automatic TTL exposure control supporting a diverse array of
Various forms of illumination, such as the diffusion effect achieved by
attaching a diffuser to the flash head. Bounce flash, using a reflector, without
directly illuminating the subject with flash light, can be accomplished, while
maintaining automatic exposure control.
Bounce-flash function with movable flash head
The flash head can be tilted up by up to 90 degrees , to the left by
180 degrees , or to the right by 90 degrees . Bounce photography, in which light
is reflected off a white wall or the ceiling or a reflector, increases your
range of photographic expression. As the flash head can also be tilted down by 7
degrees , light can be effectively used even for close-up shots.
The EF-530 DG SUPER provides the TTL wireless-slave-flash functions,
which allows the flash to be moved to a location away from the camera for
operation. The TTL wireless-flash function enables the control of multiple
EF-530 DG SUPER units while preserving the automatic TTL control function. The
model for Sigma, Sony and Pentax uses the camera's built-in flash for signaling,
and makes the EF-530 DG SUPER located away from the camera to fire. The model
for Canon utilises an EF-530 DG SUPER mounted on the camera for signaling, and
triggers and controls single or multiple EF-530 DG SUPER units, located away
from the camera. In this procedure, the signaling and flash triggering are
performed by changing the settings of the EF- 530 DG SUPER mounted on the
camera. The Designated Slave-flash function triggers multiple, units of the
EF-530 DG SUPER, each corresponding to a preset channel (with manual exposure
control). The Normal Slave-flash function can be used to synchronize one or more
EF-530 DG SUPER flashes with the camera's internal flash or other flash
equipment (with manual exposure control).
Modeling flash function to check for shadows
Like a studio flash unit equipped with a modeling lamp, the EF-530 DG
SUPER also offers a modeling flash function, enabling the user to check for
intense reflections and shadows, before actually taking the flash picture. (for
Sigma, Sony, Canon, and Pentax cameras).
FP flash function for high shutter speeds
For focal-plane shutters, the flash synchronization speed is limited to coincide
with full shutter opening, thus limiting the use of high shutter speeds with
flash. The FP Flash function makes flash photography possible at shutter speeds
greater than the normal synchronization speed. When the lens diaphragm is set to
larger apertures to limit depth of field in synchronized daytime shooting, high
shutter speeds can be used to balance the daylight and the flash light, at any
Rear-curtain synchro flash mechanism for natural representation of motion
When shooting a moving subject in slow synchro photography, selection of the
rear-curtain synchro mode allows the flash to be triggered immediately before
the rear-curtain of the shutter closes. Unlike front-curtain synchro, this mode
records blurred trails behind the subject rather than in front, for a more
natural expression of motion.
A full range of advanced functions
The EF-530 DG SUPER is packed with convenient functions, including the
"Multi-Pulse Flash Function," which exposes a series of images onto a single
frame, and the "Auto Power-Off Function," which automatically shuts off the
power. It also features a red-eye reduction function, an exposure compensation
function, an exposure-control checking function, and many others.
