    Sigma Flash for GRD

    I have been playing with the Sigma 530 flash recommended by Ricoh.
    It is enormous next to the camera.
    However it does allow TTL metering and I found one other bonus; the flash compensation introduced in firmware 2.40 for the GRD works on this external flash as well!!!
    w00t!!!

    Flash recommended by Ricoh.
    TTL Flash Metering, On Camera flash compensation controlled as well.
    As you see it dwarfs the camera for all this.
    It weighs as much as 3 GRD's.

    Or Sunpak PF20XD

    Tiny, light, 3 auto levels, full range of manual power out put.
    Covers 28mm field of view easily.
    Has pull up diffuser giving excellent coverage with 21mm efl GW-1 installed on GRD.
    Guess which one I use most

    What model Sunpack is that? Would it work the same on a GX100? Do you get red eyes?

    Any thoughts on the Metz 20 C-2? Looks like it covers 35mm equiv width and only has two auto settings at f/2.8 & f/5.6, but it's small and has a bounce head. I'd have to stick with a small flash, otherwise I'd just use my DSLR.

    I've been told it comes with a diffuser panel that lets it cover 28mm.
    It has been highly recommended to me.
    Here is slow synch shot using the GRD/GT-1 wide open and the Sunpak flash
