Advanced features and high performance for the latest digital SLR cameras and 35mm film SLR cameras
Advanced features and high performance allows photographers to express their intentions accurately. The EF-530 DG SUPER is designed to work with both AF 35mm SLR and digital cameras of all the popular manufacturers. The EF-530 DG SUPER is a multifunctional shoe mount type flash that provides a large amount of light, featuring a guide number of 53/m (174/ft) w/ISO 100. Among the diverse features of this flash, are the Autozoom function, which automatically sets the illumination angle in accordance with the focal length of the lens; TTL exposure control, which automatically regulates the amount of light; bounce and swivel head functions, which come in very handy for bounce photography; FP flash, which is capable of synchronizing the flash illumination with high shutter speeds; and the rear curtain synchro flash mechanism, which makes delayed synchro photography possible. A wireless slave function is also available for use with compatible cameras.
Equipped with New TTL Auto Flash Exposure
EF-530 DG SUPER is designed to work with the latest TTL auto exposure systems of all popular manufacturer’s 35mm SLR and Digital SLR cameras.
Autozoom function for changing the illumination angle in accordance with the lens’ angle of view
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.
*Autozoom function is not available with some camera models. For details please refer to compatibility table.
Bounce-flash function with movable flash head
The flash head can be tilted up by upto 90 , to the left by 180 , or to the right by 90 . 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 , light can also be used for close-up shots.
Auto Power-Off function prevents wasted power
Even if the flash is left with the power on, it automatically shuts off, if it is not operated for a certain length of time. This conserves battery power in flash photography. When the shutter button is depressed halfway, the power turns on again, and charging resumes.
AF auxiliary light is very convenient for photography in a dark place
AF may not work appropriately in a dark place. However, the AF auxiliary light mechanism of EF-530 DG SUPER lets you control AF even in situations where autofocusing is difficult. (With some cameras, AF auxiliary light may not work, please refer to a compatibility table)
Manual Switching of the amount of light
The flash power level of the EF-530 DG SUPER can be set from full to 1/128 for Sigma and Canon mounts, and full to 1/64 for Sony, Nikon, and Pentax mounts.
TTL Wireless Flash Function
TTL wireless flash function allows the flash to be positioned and operated from a location away from the camera. Operation and features of EF-530DG Super change according to the camera model in use.The Sigma, Konica-Minolta/Sony, Nikon (D80, D70, D70s, D200 only), Pentax
*istD, cameras’ built-in flash can be used for triggering the EF-530 DG SUPER, located away from the camera.
The models for Sigma (SD10), Canon, Pentax D-SLRs, and Nikon (D50, D40, D40x, D2 Series and F6) can utilize an EF-530 DG Super mounted on the camera hotshoe for triggering single or multiple EF-530 DG Super units located away from the camera.
The Designated Slave function allows you use of two or more EF-530 DG SUPER flash units and also flashguns can fire together by using the channel settings. Since the EF-530 DG SUPER is equipped with this function, it can be used with all camera models. It is also possible to use the camera’s built-in flash or another flash unit in Normal Slave mode (Flash Exposure must be adjusted manually).
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 shutter speed. This function is not available with some cameras models. For details please refer to compatibility table.
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. Rear-Curtain Synchro function cannot be used with some camera models. It can be used with cameras providing rear-curtain sync. only. For details please refer to compatibility table.
