Re: AF Beam Cover for 550EX Speedlite

I broke a lens once and just went and bought a New / Used Bounce Flash that had a uneversal flash-boot. most cameras have a flash plug in to acommidate Auto Flash Modes. If You Know how to test Cameras and Adjustable 'Bounce" flashes like yours PAWN SHOPS are a PARADISE.

Canon often won't sell replacement parts like this to consumers but you may get your local repair shop to order one for you or find a dead one on Ebay or Craigslist and use it for parts.
