This sturdy and feature-rich flashgun from renowned optics manufacturer Sigma includes full TTL compatibility, and boasts a colossal GN of 63 at ISO 100 and 200mm...
The TTL works extremely well, even when stopping out the sky and shooting into the sun. The power range can be set anywhere from 1/1 to 1/128, using the simple rear controls and LCD screen, or the handy twist-control on the side, to ensure you get the best exposure when working manually.
The flashgun supports a focal length of 24-200mm, and has a modelling flash function – so you can double-check you’re not casting shadows before you take your shots. The head can be tilted upwards from -7° to 90°, and 180° left or right.
Off-camera fans can use the EF-630 as a slave unit, triggered by your camera’s flash commander.
This is the most expensive and heaviest flashgun in test, but it does offer the most power to compensate.
