SOURCE: shooting in low light with a canon rebel xt

Hello parr_alp,
Please keep in mind that when shooting in low light, you will ALWAYS get some amount of blur when you are hand holding the camera unless you use a flash. The only way to increase your shutter speed is to crank up your ISO setting to 800, 1200, 1600, etc. If there is no tripod handy, brace yourself against a stationary object and remember to keep your elbows tucked down near your body when shooting (no sense in holding up your arms, too).
There is no way to increase the ISO limits of your camera while maintaining quality of your images. And once again, you will ALWAYS get a certain amount of blur when hand holding the camera. 
The external flash not firing is an entirely separate issue. This could have to do with your metering, a bad flash, bad connection in the hot shoe, what shooting mode you're in — the possibilities are numerous. The next time your flash doesn't work, write down all the settings of your camera and keep track of them (i.e. shooting mode, metering mode, flash settings, current lighting situations, etc.) You may start to notice a pattern and perhaps we can help you here.
Anyway, happy shooting, and if this response was helpful, please rate it! Thank you!
Jeff

Sounds like the flash tube has gone.

The flash ratio between a master unit mounted on my Canon 5D Mark II and slave doesn't work properly. A couple of shots are fine but then all of sudden the slave unit fires ar full power, then a few week...


If you had the ATG Gold MG8k Flash Kim X3, then your 430EX II or 580EX II can transforms into wireless radio ATG ETTL II.

If you are using the outdated wireless IR ETTL with a 580EX II as a Master. Then you have to set the Slave (ATG/580EX II/430EX II) body facing close to the Master.

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.

You must disable the 580EX II form using the 4AA.

4AA must be needed when using hv power pack.

Just let the 4AA use & display the LCD panel.

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.

I have a Sunpak pf30x flash (ETTL II for Canon) and a 550d Canon but the flash will not work. the flash works on my Canon Eos 300 film. Help


Many flashguns deigned for film cameras - even really expensive ones - will not work with DSLRs.
I have a perfectly good pentax gun that cost me almost £300. It is fanstastic on my TOTR Pentax SLR but will only blat at maximum power on my Pentax DSLR. I had to spend another almost £300 to buy the new gun that will work with all the bells and whistles on my DSLR.
It looks as though Canon work theirs the same way.

I mounted the Canon 580EX II to my Canon 5D Mark II. When I using Manual Mode, I can't set the shutter speed more faster then 1/200 sec. Is this problem normal/limitation of it?


Yes. If you were able to set a faster shutter speed, then you would not expose the entire frame and would have the shadow of either the first or second shutter curtain (or both) partially masking the frame.

At higher speeds, the shutter is never fully exposed: before the first shutter curtain has finished travelling across the frame, the second one has stated it's journey. All SLR's have this issue and on some older models you could only use a maximum 1/60th of a second.

In practice though, in dark conditions the "slow" shutter speed does not affect exposure as the true exposure will be determined by how much light the flash puts out, and it puts this light out in as little as 50 microseconds (50 millionths of a second) for a modern electronic flash bulb.

Faster shutter speeds can be used successfully, but only with flashes which operate in high speed mode. What they do is to make the flash burst seem longer by rapidly firing the flash bulb many times. This trick can ensure that there is sufficient light to expose the frame at the highest shutter speeds. Shutters which operate at, say, 1/4000 may seem fast, but compared to the speed at which a single electronic flash burst operates, it's an eternity.

Canon 580ex II strobe issue


This depends on the mode you have selected on the flash gun. If you have Multi selected you will get the strobe effect. The strobe effect is all so present to help the flash set the correct exposure. It's not a problem with the flash or the camera. Spend some time reading through the flash gun manual. I have to admit it is not always clear. Also try Youtube for a video.
