What flash would you recommend for the canon sx50 for around 70-$100?


In this price range you may find used Canon Speedlites like the 220EX or similar. I have found these to work on most EOS E-TTL cameras. As for new strobes you should consider the Bolt VS-260 for Canon. Also you may be able to get a Sunpak PZ42XC for just a little more than 100 or a Speedlite 90EX for under 70 (I use one on my EOS M).

I have been using my Canon 580ex ii with my Canon 5d mark ii. It will not fire at all now. I also tried my old 420 ex speedlite and it will not fire either. But, they both work on my Canon 40d.


You can actually set the external flash not to fire in the menu settings of your camera. Check there or try mounting the flash on your camera, turn both on and reset your camera to factory default settings through your camera menu settings.

Is speedlite 540ez is compatiable with canon eos 40d


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

Can I use it wirelessly with a canon EOS 40D


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

Hi,
Congrats on your flash purchase. To pruchase a copy of the instructions manual, I would suggest the infamous ebay. There is currently a copy available by this seller: http://cgi.ebay.com/Canon-Speedlite-540EZ-Instruction-Manual-Orig_W0QQitemZ220318470163QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item334c011013#ht_818wt_1166

I have a canon 40D and a speedlite 580 second sync not working


If you are not in P, AV, TV or M then the camera will not allow that feature. The picture modes disable many higher, more sophistocated features.

Won't Work As Slave With Canon EOS 400D


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.)
