Hi dll932! i wonder whether you can help... you will have to forgive me if my question is a little basic but i am covering a charity event tomorrow in a very dark restaurant... dark decor, low lighting, candles, 44 people & a celebrity! this will be the first time i have used the canon speedlite 580ex with my 5d and boy am i going to need it! the trick is going to be retaining the ambient light and showing up the lavish decor in the place while still capturing the action and folks enjoying themselves! i just wondered if you have any top tips for getting the best out of flash and camera please?!

This is a wonderful flash unit that I had the privilege to own many years ago. The battery door is in front of the hot shoe. Slide it forward or in the direction of arrow and allow it to swing down. Four AA batteries should fall out or slide in depending on whether there are any already there.
Well, you didn\'t bother to tell us the make and model of your camera. So it\'s questionable whether you even got the right kind of memory. I\'m not going to waste time writing a reply when you can\'t be bothered to give even the most basic info to those you\'re asking to help you. Sorry, but I think you need to have a little more courtesy.
On a second point. Asking for how you put a micro SD card in to an adapter.......really?? If you can\'t work that out then I think there\'s very little hope for you. Technically ignorant I can understand. But too damn lazy to read the instructions on something you just bought is, I\'m sorry to say, extremely lazy. And it\'s not like this is a difficult bit to work out.
I hate giving a response like this. But there is a limit where someone is just being too damned lazy that it steps over the mark.
Most Canon Digital SLRs use the ETTL metering system. I can't find any decent specs or manuals on the net about this flash whether its ETTL or TTL. I could find models that are specific to Canon and Nikon, so check that first too.
Also be wary of the flashes trigger voltage. A voltage too high might fry the camera when its mounted on the hotshoe, so see if you can find it in the manual.
