Buy the 550EX, it's cheaper

Master /or Slave = 550
Slave = other

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If you are using the outdated wireless IR ETTL with a 580EX II as a Master.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.

Want to buy a flash to mount to the camera


The SX10 has a standard flash mount, which will fit just about any flash unit. The manual recommends the Canon Speedlite 220EX, 430EX II, or 580EX II units. Other manufacturers' flash units will also work, though perhaps not as automatically.

The big thing to watch for is that older (film-era) flash units may have higher trigger voltages that can fry newer digital cameras. Before buying such a unit, check this list.

I have a Canon Speedlite 580EX, the flash will not go off.


Perhaps the unit is set to master/slave mode. Look into that.

hint: Press and hold on the zoom button to get into the master/slave menu

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.
