Can't Trigger Sigma EF-500 DG Super Flash
Jan 20, 2013

Ive had this Sigma EF-500 DG Super flash for a number of years. Only used it a couple of times when I first got it and its been sitting ever since. Now a I want to take some shots using it externally on a stand and trigger it via pocket wizards on manual setting only. For some reason I can only get it to trigger with this setup when it's in normal slave flash mode (not ettl, m, or multi). and it'll only fire at full power like this. When I try to lower the power setting it gives the multi pop strobe effect. Can't figure out whats going on with this thing. Is it just fried? Anyone have any ideas???  Thanks.
