ABOUT THE BATTERY

This flash unit uses four AA type Alkaline dry cell batteries, Ni-Cad or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries. Manganese batteries can also be used but as they have a shorter life than Alkaline batteries, we do not recommend using them. Please replace batteries if it takes more than 30seconds to light the Ready Lamp. To assure proper electrical contact, clean the battery terminals before installing the batteries. NiCad batteries do not have standardized contacts. If you use NiCad batteries, please confirm that the battery contacts touch the battery compartment properly. To prevent battery explosion, leakage or overheating, use four new AA batteries of the same type and brand. Do not mix the type or new and used batteries. Do not disassemble or short-circuit the batteries, or expose them fire or water; they may explode. Do not recharge the batteries other than Ni-Cd or Ni-MH rechargeable batteries. When the flash will not be used for an extended period of time, remove the batteries from the flash to avoid the possibility of damage from leakage. Battery performance decreases at low temperatures. Keep batteries insulated when using the flash in cold weather. As with any flash, it is recommended you carry spare batteries when on a long trip or when photographing outdoors in cold weather.

BATTERY LOADING

Each time you press the ZOOM button, the LCD panel display will change and indicate the zoom position in sequence as follows. 24mm 28mm 35mm 50mm 70mm 85mm 105mm (Auto) Generally, in the ETTL (TTL) mode, the flash will automatically set the zoom position according to the focal length of your lens. When you turn on the main switch, the flash will memorize and set the zoom head position to the last setting used. If you use a lens wider than the flash head setting, there may be under exposed areas around the edge of the picture. Depending on the flash head setting, the flashs Guide Number will be changed.

WIDE PANEL

This flash is equipped with a built in type wide panel, which can provide ultra wide 17mm angle of coverage. Slide out the wide panel and flip it down to cover flashs head. Then the coverage angle setting of the flash will be set to 17mm automatically. If the built-in wide panel comes off accidentally, the ZOOM button will not function. In this case please contact the store where the flash was purchased or a Sigma service station.

LCD PANEL ILLUMINATION

When you press the LIGHT button, the LCD panel will illuminate for about 8 seconds. The illumination stays on longer than 8 seconds if you press the LIGHT button once again.

ETTL (TTL) AUTO FLASH

In the TTL AUTO Mode, the camera will control the amount of flash lighting to get the appropriate exposure for the subject. A type cameras can be set in ETTL mode. B type cameras can be set in TTL mode. 1. Set the cameras mode to Full-AUTO Mode. ( Usually Mode. If the camera does not have Mode, set to P Mode.)
2. Turn on the power switch of the flash, the ETTL (TTL) mark will appear on the LCD panel and the flash will start charging. 3. Focus on your subject. 4. Check that the subject is located within the effective distance range indicated on the LCD panel. 5. Press the shutter button, after the flash is fully charged. Note: When the flash is fully charged, the ready light in the viewfinder appears. When the camera receives the appropriate exposure, the ETTL (TTL) mark on the LCD panel will appear for 5 seconds. If this indication does not appear, the flash illumination is not sufficent for that situation. Please re-take the picture at a closer distance. The AF Auxiliary Light will turn on automatically as you focus on a dark area. Note: Effective distance is up to about 0.7 to 9 meters (2.3-29.5 feet). When the camera is set to Creative Zone, the flash will be set to TTL / ETTL mode. When the flash is fully charged, the flash mark will appear in the finder. If the shutter is released before the flash is fully charged, the camera will take the picture at a slow shutter speed with no flash.
USING FLASH IN OTHER CAMERA MODES (Except EOS700, 750, 850)
Shutter Speed Priority Setting
By selecting the Tv mode of the camera, you can set the shutter speed from 30sec. to 1/X sync speed. When you set the desired shutter speed, the camera will select the appropriate aperture value for the scene. If the subject is too light or too dark, the aperture value indicator will blink and show the limit values (maximum or minimum aperture). In such as case, the camera proceeds to take a flash photograph at the limit value. Thus, the main subject in the picture should be exposed correctly, but the background may become under or over exposed.
Aperture Priority Setting
By selecting the Av mode of your camera, the camera will select the appropriate shutter speed for the scene. If the subject is too bright or too dark, the shutter speed indicator will blink and show the limit (highest or slowest shutter speed) value. The highest shutter speed will be limited to the cameras normal flash synchronization speed. In such a case, the camera proceeds to take a flash photograph at the limit value. Thus, the main subject in a picture should be exposed correctly, but the background may become under or overexposed.

HIGH SPEED SYNC (FP) FLASH, A TYPE CAMERAS ONLY
When you take a picture with an ordinary flash, you cannot use a shutter speed faster than the cameras synchronized speed because the flash must fire when the shutter curtain is fully open. When using the High Speed Sync mode, the flash keeps firing while the shutter curtain is running, thus you can use a shutter speed faster than the shutters normal synchronization speed. 1. Select the cameras exposure mode. (Tv or M modes can be used) 2. Select a shutter speed faster than the cameras normal synchronization speed. 3. Slide the Power Switch of the flash to the ON position. 4. Choose the Flash Mode by using MODE button (ETTL or M modes can be used). 5. Press + or - button until the mark is displayed on the LCD panel. 6. Focus on the subject 7. Check that the subject is located within the effective distance, indicated on the LCD panel. mark is in the viewfinder of the camera and then you can take the picture. 8. Confirm the With high-speed sync, the Guide Number changes depending on the shutter speed. The flash range will be shorter (ie Guide Number will be smaller) when the shutter speed is faster. (Refer to table 2 on the last page). Selecting shutter speeds slower than the cameras normal synchronization speed cancels Hi-speed sync. Then the flash will automatically set to normal ETTL operation. To activate FP flash again, follow the procedure above from point 1. It is possible to use the exposure compensation function with high speed synchronization operation. To do so, please refer to your cameras instruction manual regarding exposure correction. will disappear when Hi-speed sync (FP Flash) is cancelled.

(Please refer to your cameras instruction) Exposure compensation on M mode When using the camera on M mode, you can change the aperture value on the camera, or change the flash power level, after setting the exposure compensation.

REAR-CURTAIN SYNCHRONIZATION
When you photograph a moving subject with slow synchronization, usually the furrow of the subject will be exposed in front of the subject. The ordinary flash light will fire when the first shutter curtain is fully opened, thus the subject will be exposed from the time flash is fired to the time the shutter is closed (This is front curtain synchronization). When you use rear curtain synchronization, the flash will fire just before the rear curtain begins to close, and the subject will be exposed by ambient light from the time the shutter opens until the flash fires. As a result, the furrow of the subject will therefore be recorded behind the subject, creating a more natural effect. It can be used with cameras providing rear-curtain sync. only. You cannot set this function on the flashgun directly. For details please refer to your cameras instruction manual. The LCD panel on the flash will indicate mark, when the Second-curtain synchronization function is set.

RED-EYE REDUCTION

When you take a picture with flash, sometimes the persons eyes reflect the flash light and appear as red-eyes, in the picture. If you use the function of Red-eye reduction, the flash will blink approximately 1 second, before the shutter is released, and reduce the red-eye. Available with cameras providing red-eye reduction control only. You cannot set this function on the flashgun directly. For details please refer to your cameras instruction manual. The LCD panel on the flash will indicate mark, when the Red-eye reduction function is set.
