Question about Canon Speedlite 540EZ TTL Flash

Not working with my Rebel XTI

I havent had a problem with my 540EZ Speedlight in 6 years but now have a strange one. I just got a Rebel XTI and the speedlight wont work on it. The flash works on all my other cameras its just the new digital. The camera's hot shoe works with my studio strobes so I am guessing it isnt the camera. Any ideas?

I had exactly the same problem with my XSi. Neither the XTi or the Xsi are compatible with this flash in TTL. It will still work in the manual settings. This flash doesn't recognize the 9 point focus points in the newer cameras. These 2 cameras will only work with the Canon 220EX, 430EX or 580EX flash units. I ended up buying the 430EX and currently have my old 540EZ for sale.

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

Can I use Speedlight SB-50DX with Canon EOS Rebel Xti


It is not possible to use the Nikon SB-50DX directly on a Canon EOS Rebel camera. The Nikon flash gun hot shoe contacts do not match the Canon hot shoe contacts.
You can use the Nikon as a slave flash gun with a PC flash cord that matches the Nikon's flash contacts then connect the end of this flash cord to a flash trigger. The Canon's flash can then trigger the Nikon flash gun via the flash trigger.

How do you get to the video mode on the canon 400d rebel xti


There is no video mode on the Xti. The first Canon Digital Rebel to be equipped with video was the T1i, which came out almost 5 years later (2 years ago).

Can I set a Canon EOS Rebel XTi up so that the picture I am taking shows up in the LCD?


No. You require a feature called live view and your camera doesn't have it. It's technically difficult to achieve on dSLR's and it's only a couple of years ago that it started to appear on some models.

Built-in flash does not work


DO NOT MESS with a new camera (or any other new equipment).
Take/send it back to the vendor, The purchaser has rights also. Number one it must work.
I don't know your location but in UK (& Europe) we have very strict consumer legislation.

Xti and Speedlite 200E


The only way to solve the problem I see is to turn the flash into non-TTL one. It can be easy done by opening four screws at the connector side of the flash, unsoldering or cutting the BROWN line and closing the connector back. The AF assist led will work.

That I did on my 200E with Canon 400D camera and all works file.
Enjoy!

Wont work


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
