    Sounds like settings for sure, do you have it on first or second curtain and what sync speed are you using?

What speed was the photo taken at? If you have camera shake at say 1/30th then when you use the flash it captures a sharp image at the speed of the flash, maybe 1/10000 sec.
Practice holding the camera firmly and pressing the shutter slowly and gently at a shutter speed of 1/15th second (without flash) and trying to get some (relatively) sharp images. These techniques will improve all your photos.

Many factors here, but the obvious is an issue with the focus assist beam. The 700D came out in 2013. 1. Check that the firmware for your camera has been upgraded to the latest version. 2. Make sure the focus assist beam is Enabled in the camera settings. 3. Make sure your shooting mode is One Shot, not AI Servo.

You must change the setting in the camera itself. There are so many variables here that this question is nearly impossible to answer. I would take the newer flash back and get an exchange. Did you mean to put 70D instead of 700?

Could either be that the shot without the speedlight is noisy/grainy, thus this might cause or from a perspective seems blurry

Make sure it is not set to manual 'M' on the display. To get it to shoot in ETTL (Through the lens) press the mode button and it should read ETTL in the top left corner. This then means that the light is metered thorugh the lens and you are not relying on the manual settings.

Hope that helps. I had the same problem when i first got my.
By the way a brilliant all round bit of kit. I have traveled the world to some fairly extreme temps and got it wet (Rain, humidity, sea spray to deserts and serious dust) All good.

Good luck

is your master flash set on a camera? The EX II has something that makes it have a 1 second delay when using sync mode, unless the master flash is set on the camera.

SOURCE: My Canon 60D's internal flash

I encountered this same issue on new 60D. There is a micro switch under a guide blade in the shoe on the right side. Mine was not stuck down but bent just enough downward that the switch was being actuated. I used a pointed pocket knife blade to pry up on the guide blade making it arch slightly upward and everything is fine now. Now i wonder is this going to be a problem every time i mount and unmount my external flash. Time will tell.

Canon 600ex-rt only fires in full power, no ETTL or variable power?


  • Is it connected to the camera hotshoe?
  • Is it off camera being fired the camera wireless?
  • Is it fired using some type of wireless trigger such as Pocket Wizard and their ilk?
  • Have you tried manual mode? Doing so may give you an idea what is occurring.
  • Are you shooting in a studio or outside? If in a studio maybe the eTTL thinks it needs more power than what you think it does.
99.99% of my flash shooting manual, not eTTL. Why, eTTL is much to inconsistent.

If none of that helps you please call Canon:

Canon Speedlite 580ex ii - won't work with camera


Caroline, you should try to set the camera on "M" and the flash in 2nd curtain flash sync.

Or set flash in ATG wireless IR ETTL Slave modes and pop-up the flash on Canon EOS-70D.

Canon 600ex-rt speedlite won't turn on with new batteries


I was having exactly the same issue with my 600EX-RT. This is what solved the problem for me. With the power turned off. Hold down the 2 clear buttons for approximately 5 seconds, then turn the power on and hopefully, you should have a fully operational Flash.

I have been using my Canon 580ex ii with my Canon 5d mark ii. It will not fire at all now. I also tried my old 420 ex speedlite and it will not fire either. But, they both work on my Canon 40d.


You can actually set the external flash not to fire in the menu settings of your camera. Check there or try mounting the flash on your camera, turn both on and reset your camera to factory default settings through your camera menu settings.

Canon Speedlite 580 EX (mark 1) 6 years of continuous use - single flash, multiple flash & continuous burst - with rechargeable batteries. All is well, until recently. Now recharge time has quickly...


The capacitor (neck) is no longer hold a charge or charging circuit is going out on a extended breaks.

Save your money and buy ATG's Godox TT685c.
If you buys two, then you got ATG wireless radio ETTL II flashes.
It would cost over $1,000.00+ USD to buy two Canon 600EX II-RT just to do the same with two ATG's.
