Manufacturer's Description

Electronic Flash EF-500 DG SUPER is designed to work with both AF 35mm SLR and Digital SLR cameras of popular manufacturers, for advanced flash photography. It has a maximum guide number of 165 in feet or 50 in meter at 105mm focal length (ISO 100). The projection angle of the flashlight is set automatically to match the lens' focal length ranging from 28mm wide-angle to 105mm medium-telephoto. It also incorporates a built-in diffuser that expands the angle of illumination down to that of 17mm lens.

It enables full automatic flash photography by TTL automatic flash exposure control. It now includes S-TTL flash photography for Sigma, 3-D multi-sensor balanced fill flash function and i-TTL flash photography for Nikon, E-TTL II flash photography for Canon, ADI flash photography and P-TTL flash photography for Minolta.

For bounce flash it can be tilted 90° upwards and 7° downward for close-ups. Also it can be swiveled 180° to the left and 90° to the right. It incorporates "modeling flash" mode to provide proper light distribution to check the shadow of the subject. The multi pulse flash features enable reduced power setting from 1/4 to 1/128 in 6 steps and the pulse frequency of the flash can be set from 1Hz to 199Hz. EF-500 DG SUPER incorporates wireless TTL flash photography, slave flash photography, and FP flash photography (synchronized with high shutter speeds). In addition, manual flash also can be set at 8 output power levels. The covering focal length of the flashlight can be seen on the LCD panel, and a flash ready signal can be seen in the viewfinder. The EF-500 DG SUPER also incorporates auto power off system.

Automatic TTL exposure control Advanced photographic techniques, such as diffused lighting photography, with a diffuser attached to the flash head, or bounce photography, with the light pointed at the ceiling or wall to soften the shadows cast on the subject, without directly illuminating the subject with flash light, can be performed while the automatic exposure control function is preserved. 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 .

5.0 out of 5 stars No complaints, does the job 12 Dec 2007
By J. Cambron - Published on Amazon.com
I'm not a camera expert, but I was looking for something better than the built-in flash on my Canon XTi. Particularly I was looking for something that would work better with my EF-S fish-eye lens. The throw is too short for the built-in flash in that it creates a shadow for close-in pictures. The EF-500 eliminated that problem on all but the closest shots. My only gripe is that I don't like the mount much. My last Canon flash fit neatly in the mount and had a lock button. The lens has a friction wheel that you twist to tighten. It's just not as easily removed, although it probably holds it on more tightly.
