Sometime recently, one of the members of this Forum answered a post and indicated in their response that they have had good results in using the Sigma EF-500 DG Super flash with the Canon EOS 10D and 20D digital bodies. I have tried to search in this Forum for that posting to no avail. I am thinking that in the crossover to the new Glamour 1 web site it may have gotten deleted.

Does anyone out there have experience using this particular flash/camera combination? I need to get an shoe mounted and I do not have $600.00 for one of the Canon units and I have used and I do like Sigma products so if the EF-500 flash will work I plan to get it.

If anyone remembers this particular post and will respond and share their experiences I would appreciate it. Thanks to all.

HI,

I have this flash unit and I used it with my 20D. I upgraded to the Canon 550EX for one reason only. The Sigma unit does not have an external power supply capability like the 550 and I needed to have a battery pack.

The Sigma is very capable and is the match of the 550 in terms of flash power. The 550 does work better with the Canon cameras for obvious reason.

But I got my 550EX for only $289 at B&H. The Sigma is only about $150.

You'll like either unit.
