Third party ring flash with Canon 800d

hi guys

new to the forum & hoping someone can help?!

I have a 800d & trying to get Sigma EM-140DG ring flash working with it but just doesn't want to work.

Is there a setting I'm missing? Trying to shoot in close up mode

Any help would be really appreciated!

Re: Third party ring flash with Canon 800d

To test that both camera and flash are working properly set the camera to manual mode "M" with a shutter speed of 1/125, an aperture of f8 and ISO100, set the flash to "M" mode. Upon pressing the shutter button the flash should now fire and result in reasonable picture for anything at about a metre distance.

If this works then you will know that everything is working and you must have a problem with your initial settings.
