Question about Sakar (736AF/CAN) Flash

Open Question

952AF/CAN flash unit does not project Infra Red beam (low light assist) with Canon EOS 40D in low light conditions. The unit works ok in the other modes and is fine for slave mode etc. just can't focus in the dark- even at short distances with this flash. the built in flash emits a series of pre-flashes to assist the AF..... any suggestions?

How do i switch off flash in canon eos 400d? I do not want to use the flash but it pops up automatically in every mode.


Your camera has a built-in flash and it will pop up automatically in low light or backlit conditions if you are in Basic Zone.
All you have to do is push it back down.

If you set your camera option to P, only the shutter speed and aperture are set. You can then change settings for your flash and other functions.

Sometimes when i'm taking picture my flash wont stop blinking for a few seconds.


The 400D uses flash assisted focusing. In low light conditions the auto focus cannot get a focus lock so it pops the flash a few times so the lens has a chance to focus. You will notice this will go away when in the manual focus mode (the switch on the side of the lens).

The only way around this problem (as people in a photo think the photo has already been taken and looks away when the camera actually takes the picture) is to use a hotshoe mounted TTL Canon Speedlight (430ex or 580ex) which use an infra-red focussing beam.

Internal Flash not working-Canon Eos 40D


I've had this happen to me too and I've been researching about it. Aparantly it happens because the camera still think the external flash is attached. If you go into the menu and under flash control, try ot enter the settings for built in flash. If this is the problem it will tell you here that the external flash is still attached. From what I have read to far, I'm not sure how to fix it. I would reccomend taking it in somehwere. I dont htink its a hard problem to fix.

ISO settings are basically the way the camera responds to light. The higher the ISO, the more the camera will take low light images. The trade off though in higher ISO is that you get grain.

You can use any infra red or Bluetooth flash unit, but make sire you get on that lists your particular model. That way they actually work from the amount of light that hits the CMOS sensor inside the camera itself.

Remote Firing of Flash Units


The EOS 40D does not have a transmitter built in. The remote flash units must be set to "Slave" and the on-camera external flash unit (eg Speedlite 580EX) or transmitter (ST-E2) set to "Master". Note that the Speedlite 430EX doesn't have the function to act as Master and you need a minimum or the 580EX or a ST-E2 speedlite transmitter (or similar) as Master/s.

Exposure problem


Your 40D requires that you use an ETTL-II type flash like the Canon 380-EX. What flash are you using?
