The flash model for Canon is 7308 it might be the correct flash but programed for the wrong brand/manufacture. The way I see this flash is that Promaster produces this 7400edf to work on all the major camera brands but it's programed for a specific camera. The flash firmware updatability is done by a dealer. Another thing I ran into with one of my students cameras (a Canon) was you needed to go into the menu to select external flash over internal. I believe Canon is doing this due to the video capabilities of the camera.

The flash on my canon eos 60d not working


Possibly the spring that raises it is broken, or there is foreign matter in the hinge. Can it be raised manually ?

Canon 60d internal flash not popping up


Check the metal tabs inside the notable rails as they need to touch the upper part of the rails to allow built in flash to work
Use a micro screwdriver to push the tabs up to the rail
GENTLY as that was what was wrong with my canon digital body

Canon 550 ex speedlight - flashes okay. Won't sink with 60d (tried different cameras at dealer - same problem) Camera is okay .


Bruce,
Try these steps:
1. Set camera to manual2. Set shutter to 1/60
3. Set aperture to F5.6
4. ASA/ISO 200
5. 550EX on hotshoe
6. Do not set on slave or master
7. Turn on flash


Display must shows, ETTL.
If that doesn't work, you have to use the flash on manual.
Some of this model will not work fully on ATG Canon EOS-1D C, ATG Canon EOS-1D X IR, Canon EOS-1D X/60D/T4i because this flash is over 20 years old.


Unless you would want it to be modified by me.
But that can be costly when you can get the 580EX II for less than $425.00 USD.

Is it ok to use a promaster 7000m flash with a canon eos t1i? I don't want to damage the camera.


Yes, the Promaster 700M, with its trigger voltage of about 3 volts, is safe to use with modern digital cameras.

My new canon eos 60d will not format my new promaster memory card, Message keeps coming back " system busy please wait" did it four times and waited over 30 mins per time


The 60D unlike it's predecessors uses an SD/SDHC card I'm not familiar with the "Promaster" brand of memory card but what all SD cards has is a little lock on the side it's a little white switch that needs to be slide forward to the top of the card to unlock. Once done the card should perform the same way as a Compact Flash card.

If this is not the problem I would suspect a faulty card

After I have detached my external flash (Nissin Digital Speedlite Di622), my Canon EOS 60D does not recognize the fact that the external flash is already detached. Thus, this does not allow the built-in flash to pop out when needed.

I have tried turning the power off and on again. The problem persists.
