    BTW, MOST of these shots
    were taken with DIRECT FLASH!!!

    One thing I realized ... if you get this flash, it might be a good idea to put on a simple $2 or $3 handphone screen protector on the rear LCD panel.


    For the next series of shots, usually at longer distances, and with vast pockets of shadow or darkness in the composition, and by the FACT THAT I'M FURTHER AWAY means that the flash/light source is going to be harder and more intense. As you might know, even the Sun, which spans 1 391 000 kilometers, is a MERE POINT OF LIGHT from where we are.

    What this means: unless there are multiple flash placed at regular intervals with huge (and I mean HUGE as in 2-5 meters big) softboxes, there's absolutely no way a single point of light (on camera flash) can look soft and even.

    However, the Sigma610 seems to cope pretty well I must say!




    Fairly hard-on ... probably -1/3EV.




    Definitely dialed down to NOT make the scene outside ION or the busker look 'flashed'







    Slightly feathered.

    Couple more examples ... but while these were DIRECT FLASH,
    it's easy to control the Sigma610 to get what you want.

    OK ... Singaporeans and fellow netizens!

    WHAT is a REVIEW without at least ONE food Photo here in foodie heaven Singapore?



    Hmm ... let's see, despite the great reluctance of potentially higher profit margins/less gas and less oil (Costs baby, LABOUR & COSTS!!!),
    I managed to get a Chinatown hawker to do a 'WOK-HAY' Beef Hor Fun!




    Let's have a look at the FLAME-SEARED very fine 'WOK-HAY' kway teow!





    A very TRADITIONAL Hainanese Mutton Claypot dish! MOST Definitely 'TO-DIE-FOR' !!!!!



    These shots were made with a DIY flash diffuser.

    ALAS, it's time to conclude this test ... so here a interesting WIRELESS EXERCISE!

    While I have ONLY ONE SIGMA610 unit to test, I figured out a way to sync THREE different brands of flash, BOTH from the ANALOG as well as the DIGITAL era!

    1) 1 x SIGMA EF 610 SG SUPER
    2) 2 x EX 430
    3) 1 x Sunpak 466

    Any more units and things will start 'merging' or the effects of which will be lost.

    OK LAH ... PHOTOS PLUEZZE!




    Let's start out with THREE flash.



    The SIGMA610 is seen BOTTOM LEFT of screen.






    All four flashes involved.

    SIGMA610 on BOTTOM LEFT of screen.






    For the final shot, I decided to move the SIGMA610 (STILL BOTTOM LEFT OF SCREEN out of the picture) to create my final photo,

    The earlier shots were just to show you where the SIGMA610 was placed.
    Bottom line? Is appears quite EASY to use the SIGMA610 on AUTO SLAVE MODE!!!

    CHEERS!


    Please note that in the Multi-Flash test, some or all units were fitted with various diffusers, straight-on flash as well as CC and/or theatrical special effects gels.




    Hope you find this test review helpful and may be able to assess the potential REAL-WORLD capabilities of SIGMA's most POWERFUL flash to date - the EF 610 DG SUPER flash unit.


    CHEERS and MERRY CHRISTMAS!
