Question about Sigma EF-500 DG Super for Canon EOS TTL Flash
A while back i was at a show. I am an artist, body painter and photographer. Needless to say multitasking at one event and being slightly clumsy while doing several things, the neck ******** my camera got hooked on a chair and yanked my camera out of my hands when i was showing a client pictures that i had taken. When this had happened it broke the mounting shoe on my sigma ef-500 dg super flash.
I was told that i can buy a replacement part and just unscrew and replace it myself without having to send it it to have it repaired. Any advice on how to do this and whether or not is wise? Will it involve any soldering?
I greatly appreciate any advice or input.
Contact Holly Enterprises- The manufacture a metal foot to replace broken plastic ones on flash units. The made one specifically for some of the popular Vivatar flash units and I am not sure if theses can be used with your flash unit ro if the have others that are made especially for you strobe. I also don't know if the are user installable.
If you have to take the unit apart to do this procedure, you have to consider the high voltages that can remain in the unit even after is it turned off, If Holly can not assist you, check with the distributor of the flash- It may be better to have it professionally repaired in case there are other issues such as disconnected or broken wires that may have been damaged when the base was torn off.
Please let me know if you have any lick with this. Ed
