My camera is a Canon 400D. I put an external flash on it just few moments ago (canon speedlite 580EXII) and the flash wouldn't go off when i took pictures. So i took the flash off, but now the flash on the camera won't go. Can anyone help me?

Hi Chrissy, I had observed the same problem - after an external flash had been removed from the camera, internal flash didn't pop up. Tried to look at the Google and finally found the solution. It helped me and could help you as well:
The usual reason is that the camera thinks that there's an external flash mounted on the hot shoe. Check the external flash detect switch. It's located under the right side of the shoe (there is a metalic piece which is kind of "elastic". Just try to push it and release several times, may be put the screwdriver softly under it and out... It helped me. Here is the picture of location of the detector.

Canon 580exii speedlight, I want to only use the slaves, but they won't fire when I turn off the master


You didn't say what camera model you are using.
If you have 7D/60D/T4i you can have a total of 3 wireless ir flashes.

580EX II must be set at Master, say Group A & Channel 1
Two 270EX II must be set at Slave, say Group A & Channel 1
or
One 270EX II set at Group A & Channel 1
Second 270EX II set Group A & Channel 2


Then go into camera menu & turn off Master flash & turn settings for those two flashes.



Send me a email, then I can help you much better.

My new canon rebel T2i/EOS 550D Flash is not opening when i press shoot, it tries and tries and tries and show error 5.


A 5 error is the camera thinks the flash is not raising. Look near the hinge for a small button and see if it is up or down. This lets the camera know is the flash is up or down and if the button is stuck down you will hear the motor fire a few times and it will then error.
Unfortunately, this is one of the problems that starts to appear on cameras with pop-up flashes. You can hit the button and pull it up at the same time. Only other option is to send it to Canon to get it repaired.
or, Get an Speedlite like the 430EXII or 580EXII. The flash unit may make your camera bigger, but the results will be much better once you learn flash techniques.

I have a Tamron lense 18-250mmm for Canon. It does not focus with zoom use, iwith different Canon bodies , particularly with a focus on a light or low contrast point. Canon lenses do not seem to have this...


In low light situations, connect a speedlite flash to your body (e.g. 430EXII or 580EXII). These flashes emit a AF assist beam to assist focussing in low light situations.

Canon speedlite 430 EZ does not match with canon 400 D digital camera how to use the same flash with 400 D.


You can't. The metering systems are incompatable. You must use the EX range with the 400D, such as 430EX or 580EX (versions I or II)

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.)
