Sigm's response to wireless flash with DG 500 Super and K10

Dear Mr. Randy,

Thank you for your E-mail message dated 13th April, 2007.
We have your E-mail through Sigma Corporation of America. Therefore, we would like to answer your inquiry on behalf of SCA.

First of all, your flashguns EF-500 DG SUPER (#8071230) is compatible with PENTAX K10D. However, Built-in flash cannot be used for wireless flash. It can only be set if two or more EF-500 DG SUPER units are used.

Certainly, as new firmware Ver.1.10 or 1.11, “wireless control of external flash through built-in flash” is mentioned.
However, our flashguns has not yet been compatible with this Firmware.

We are sorry for your inconvenience.

Best Regards,
Taizo Moriya

Sounds like they have no plans for another update.
Thanks for posting Randy
