20 Most Recent Canon Speedlite 540EZ TTL Flash Questions & Answers

I'd keep on using it if I were you. As long as the flash is being used exclursively in manual mode then there isn't really a need to be able to see the display.

Yes. The 580EX II will work with any Canon digital SLR.

The Canon 540 EZ is a film camera flash, no doubt it might flash but possibly not at the right time.

What you need is a digital camera flash with the designation of EX

Yes you can but it won't TTL and you will need to fire it from or with a slave/light cell. This will make your system more like a studio set up. You will need to increase/decrease the light intensity using different modifiers for special effects. My portable/location set up uses 2 Vivitar 283's, a Canon 533G, Nikon SB 15 and a Canon 420 EX all fired from little flash slaves. here is an e-Bay reference link


Hope this was a help

It is normal for flashes to make this kind of noise, and the more powerful the flash, the louder it is likely to be. I know no way to make it quieter.

use any of the EX or EX II series Canon flashes for the proper functioning of the flash on the camera

Canon Speedlite... | Answered on Apr 05, 2010

No. The rebel, or any digital canon camera requires the use of the EX or EX II series flashes.

Try short center pin to outside rail of flash, this must fire the flash.
What flash are you using?

set the flash in A mode if not set camera aperture close

ALL Canon digital EOS cameras will work with E-TTL only. Solution: you need EX flash for full auto.

Canon Speedlite... | Answered on Aug 31, 2009

is your master flash set on a camera? The EX II has something that makes it have a 1 second delay when using sync mode, unless the master flash is set on the camera.

Speedlites with the suffix "EZ" are never compatible with the digital EOS line-up. All models that do work are named "EX" (420, 430, 550, 580EX et al.)

According to the Canon feature chart I have here; the 540EZ Speedlite flash is not compatible with the Digital Rebel XT in ETTL mode. The 480EG is also not compatible. The 550 or any of the others in that product line are would work. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
