Question about Canon Speedlite 540EZ TTL Flash

1 Answer

The flash attachment fades out photos on my Canon Rebel digital

I used to use this flash with my 35mm film camera but then bought a Canon Rebel Xsi 300 digital camera and all of the photos look washed out when I use the flash attachment. Even when I put the attached filter on the flash all the photos are washed out and white, underdeveloped. Can I still use this flash with a digital SLR?

What kind of film does an slr canon rebel take?


That depends .... canon made an slr named rebel back in the old 35mm days, then proceeded with the name right through to digital.

If your camera has
1) A back that opens (button on the left hand side - as you look through to take photo) revealing a sprocket wheel and takeup spool.
2) A small window on the back - allowing you to see the film cassette inside.
... then its probably a 35mm camera.

If your camera has
1) No back that opens, but a small cover / flap over a digital media slot.
2) A screen on the back.
.... then its probably digital, in which case it takes Compact Flash type cards.

If you can't identify it from this, please leave a comment with the model number and I can say definitively from that.

Hope this helps

Quantaray QTB-9500A with Canon Xsi not working properly


This is probably way too late for the original asker, but the previous answer is incorrect.

The Quantaray QTB-9500A is in reality a ProMaster FTD-5700 and was designed for use with later model electronic 35mm AF models (using the correct dedication module).

As such, the trigger voltage is no higher than 5v making it safe for use on later digital SLR's.

The original answerer is clearly aware that high trigger voltages on flashes designed for earlier, mostly mechanical, 35mm film cameras are often harmful to later models, but you need not worry about your model.

Please take a moment to rate my answer.

My Cannon Rebel EOS 35mm film Camera is producing blank Film


If you are getting some photos where only part of the image is visible, then I suspect that they were photos where you used a flash.

Cameras have a specified maximum shutter speed for use with a flash, this is called its 'sync speed'. This is the fastest speed that the camera will need to open the lead shutter and close the trailing shutter in order to expose the entire surface area of the image and have it evenly lit by the flash unit. If you shoot too fast of a speed, then the shutter will only be partly completed its exposure and you'll get a photo with only part of the image showing. The faster the speed past the sync speed, the less the resulting area of the image. Most cameras will have a sync speed of 1/250 or less. I think a lot of the Rebel models are 1/90 - consult your manual.

Low battery warning


What type of batteries did you buy?

For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.

If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.

Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.
