Sigma Elec Flash EF-530 DG Super used with Dimage A2 camera

Flash works ok, but the AFAuxiliary does not come on in dark conditions; it does, however, blink when wireless mode is on.

    all functions work ok with my dimage A2 on P mode. Except for the AF auxiliary light in dark conditions.Can you please explain what you mean by Wein protector and what contacts to short out and how to do it. I am no technician, as you can guess. Thanks

    my dimage A2s firmware version is : 1.00e should it be updated to resolve the problem?

Hi,

A firmware update could possibly solve the problem.

Have you checked whether the flash is placed properly in the slot..
there may be some loose connections in between the camera and the flash...

    To test everything except the camera, just short the contacts on the
    Wein protector. If the flash fires, the problem is in your camera, and
    maybe the protector did not do its job as good as expected.

You may download a copy of the manual from here. It's for the Pentax version of the flash, but I don't see anything in it that's Pentax-specific except for the mention that's it's Pentax-specific.

Sigma ef-500 dg st won't work with my d300 or 200 in ttl mode


This Sigma flash is not Ittl compatible. The D300 and D200 Nikon must have Ittl compatible flash to operate in any of the Automatic modes. It is a great flash but will not work on those two cameras.

Can I use a sigma flash EF 500 with Sony Alpha 350


Yes, if it has a Minolta/Sony mount. The Sigma EF 500 has been producedin different mount, so that the model can fit different cameras from different producers. A Sigma flash for Sony should have SO-ADI written on it.

Manual for Sigma EF-500 DG Super


You can download the manual from http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-in...0DG%20SUPER-_M
Just answer a few quick questions about its performance, value for money etc and the link to download the manual opens up. Just be careful, because there is also a manual for the Nikon version of the same flash and they are a little different.

Hope this helps.

Sigma EF-500-DG, does not charge and does not become ready


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first - make sure they have full charge (in the wrong way can discharge them) but if is it still giving the same fault, your flash is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

Sigma Elec Flash EF-530 (so) DG Super used with Dimage A2 camera


The light only flashes in wireless mode or in slave mode. It basically lets you know that the flash is ready to fire. At least that is my experience w/ the 530 DG Super.
