Sigma Announces the New EF-630 Multifunction Flash
Sigma have just announced a new top dog in their flash line up in the form of the EF-630 Electronic Flash.
This unit adds to the previous model, the EF-610, by offering more power, covering a wider zoom range of 24-200mm that taps out at 17mm with the built-in Wide Panel, and automatic zoom when mounted on top a DSLR.
With models expected to be available for Nikon, Canon and Sigma DSLRs, the EF-630 offers wireless TTL exposure control, high speed sync, rear curtain sync and modelling flash functions.
The EF-630 also features a new dot matrix LCD helps to ensure improved visibility of menu functions. A D-Pad combined with a dial on the side of the flash unit work together to optimise workflow when changing settings.
Firmware for the EF-360 flash units can be updated by using Sigma’s new FD-11 Flash USB Dock (sold separately).
No word yet on pricing or availability for either the EF-360 or the FD-11.
