Flash for D2M
Thank you SandyF,
In the past when traveling light I traveled with a camera similar sized as the dp2m but once and a while I find my self at an event where I wish I had dslr but do not want to carry one. Then what I did was put the camera (compact Nikon) on a flash bracket designed for small cameras with a full sized flash and got excellent results. Travel wise, the flash, cord and bracket take up little room & weight. Now I can leave home my D3 and and for those few hours when I am at an event like a wedding I put the setup together and get good results and afterward put the bracket & flash back in my luggage and for the rest of the trip I am back to my small light weit camera. Since I already own the camera, flash and cord I jus tneed a small bracket which is about $30. I try to make the most out of what I have.
Did I post in the the wrong forum or did I ask a dumb question?
.... a full-size flash will be ridiculously large and clumsy with the compact DP2Merrill but you could use a full-size flash if you really need directional flash. I could see this especially in studio work, but not as a carry-around flash. The Sigma EF140 is lovely for that.
.... as for specific models, why don't you call Sigma US and check .... that's what I did about the EF500 before I used it.
.....I'm not familiar enough with flash units to know whether you can use a generic flash on the camera... you might not get full function(s).
....Thus my recommendation for the EF140. It was designed and made for the DP line of cameras.
