Sigma SIGMA EM 140 DG RING FLASH MACRO - Description:
ELECTRONIC FLASH MACRO EM-140 DG is designed to work with both AF 35mm film and Digital SLR cameras of all-popular manufactures.
The EM-140 DG Ring Flash is ideal for photographing subjects in fine detail when the shadowless mode is used and is extremely effective for scientific and medical applications.
Dual flash tubes can fire simultaneously or separately. Using only one flashtube creates shadow, which can give a three-dimensional feeling to the subject. The flash features a guide number of 14 w/ISO 100.
The Modeling Flash function makes it possible to check for reflections and shadows before actually taking the flash picture.
A wireless flash function is also available, when the EM-140 DG is used as master and the EF-500 DG SUPER as a slave unit for creating fine shadow details.
High Speed Synchro and Exposure compensation functions are also available for advanced flash photography.
Ideal for Close-up photography, especially medical and scientific applications.
Fully dedicated with the latest TTL auto exposure systems.

Versatile. Adjustable output and modelling settings
I've not had this flash long but in the short period of time I've used it, it's proved to be an extremely versatile macro flash system.
It will work at ATTL setting with most of the latest cameras. You can adjust the output between the two lights independently down to 32:1, or even turn one of them off for better modelling. You can adjust the output levels to +/- 3 stops, in 1/3 stop steps.
There are many exotic settings available, including continuous shooting, high speed sync flash, flash exposure bracketing and even a multi flash mode, where you can set it to flash up to 90 flashes whilst the shutter is open.
So long as you've got the correct lens to use it with I highly recommend it.
