ettl.... shoot in auto and see the exposure accurate or not... switch your iso/ aperture etc..
see flash lens... not too yellow.

but they are built like tanks

the exposure should be just right. not too dark or too light.
if i use the auto function, the exposure shld be just right....not too dark or too light...will that solve the checking of the flash?

Sigma "FLASH".......i used it for more than 2 yrs. Mostly use it in manual mode.
Now keep the Sigma for my spare flash only. Using Metz.
