I just purchased a Rebel T2i and a 580EX II Speedlight. After approximately 50 flash photos, the speedlight shifts slightly to the rear and it appears the contact between the speedlight and camera...


It would appear to me that the flash was not locked in position and has move back on its mount which would cause the flash to go into complete manual mode or loose complete communications between camera and flash.
I would suggest shutting the camera and flash off remove the flash first unlock the little locking leaver on the bottom. The 580EX and the 580EX II differ in that the 580EX II has a leaver rather then the huge locking screw. Once apart reinsert the flash unit back into the camera hot shoe making sure that the forward edge of the flash mount is seated as deep into the Hot Shoe as possible and lock it into position. It should click into lock position. Biggest thing I have with my "crew" is when there is a flash installed on the camera they pick the camera/flash unit up by the flash that's a real bad thing cause the flash mount is light plastic and it'll ether break, twist or even unlock the flash enough that the camera falls off of the flash. Pick the assembly up with both hands lens and body. I'm not saying you are doing this but when my crew/working associate's do this I'm not happy.
Although that new switch idea is great it also can be unlocked without noticing.

Pentax me super camera


Hey judyrosebudd,
You should be able to use any flash that is not dedicated to another camera manufacturer. Even though the manufacturer lists this camera as a dedicated flash unit it still has the sync contact in the center of the hot shoe mount, which is all that is required to operate a all manual flash. This being said a dedicated flash should provide much more advanced options and simplicity of use. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Connect an external flash and aftermarket bracket


For off camera flash with the C-770 Ultra Zoom, you will need the appropriate flash cable with your flash and aftermarket bracket. Please use the following information as a reference: FL-CB05 Shoe Mount TTL Flash Cable - this cable mounts to the Hot Shoe on the C-770 Ultra Zoom; and the opposite end attaches to the aftermarket flash bracket's flash shoe or to a standard tripod attachment thread (1/4x20).
