Question about Canon Speedlite 550EX TTL Flash
I started having intermittent problems with my 550EX flash on my newer 40D. Every once in a while I get a totally blown out image for no apparent reason. Have checked the settings and can't figure it out. I used my Canon 10D at a function and it doesn't happen with the 10D. Anyone else have this problem?

I know you probably have already fixed the problem, but in case you didn't, or just to help others with the same problem:
This morning I connected my 550 EX to my camera and had the same issue with the info on the LCD flashing incessantly. Turned out to be the diffuser on top of the flash head, the one you pull out, then down over the flash to soften the light. If the diffuser is pulled out even two millimeters from its resting position, the LCD won't stop flashing! Just push it back in, and voila!
hope this can be of help

Okay, this is simple. Your camera can take several pictures at one time in a burst. However when you release the shutter button your processor takes a second to actually SAVE the pictures to the card in the camera. One thing than has helped me in my wedding photography business is to buy the fastest speed cards I can find. It significantly reduced my "busy" time.
