    Sigma Flash

    I broke the foot on my Sigma flash a while ago. I contacted Sigma Japan and they said that I'd have to send the whole unit in and pay 4,000 Yen!

    4,000 Yen just for a piece of plastic!? I've read around that it's a simple job to replace it by yourself, and it's a common thing with the feet getting broken.

    I've asked them just to send the part, but they said that they don't supply parts and insisted that if I wanted it fixed I'd have to send it in.

    I really don't want to spend 4,000 Yen plus postage each time I break the thing.

    Does anyone know where I can get a replacement foot for an EF-500 DG Super (Canon)?

    Thanks.

    Contact these people. http://criscam.com
    They will email you a form to fill out. You then fax it back and wait for a quote.
    I bought 2 hot shoes from them. $2 each + $16 shipping/handling.
    Took me about an hour to replace it. MUST have small Phillips screwdriver (jewelers size). Lay out the screws as you disassemble to keep them in order of where they came from,, and DO NOT loose the pins or springs, they may pop out. Pay VERY close attention to how it comes apart and you should be ok. If you loose anything, you will be faxing these people again for the parts.
