Question about Canon EOS 5D Mark II Digital Camera
I have a Canon 5D Mark II camera and 580-EX speedlight. How do I use this speedlight remotely from the camera (wireless). Do I need to buy a ST-E2 for this ?
This was my first full frame camera. It has new LCD screen is gorgeous. 3" diagonal with 900,000+ pixels. It's possibly the best quality LCD screen ever put on a DSLR.
The huge 21 mega-pixel RAW images are excellent. The camera uses an updated variant on Canon's .CR2 RAW format so if you use an older version of Adobe's Lightroom or Photoshop for image processing, you'll need the latest Lightroom 2.2 or Photoshop CS4 to get the proper RAW converter.
The original Canon 5d was the camera of choice for many full-time National Geographic photographers because of its outstanding image quality coupled with a small portable body. For the Mark II, Canon has added weather sealing, a host of dust reduction features, an expanded ISO range, and increased resolution (no small feat), along with a handful of other features. ISO 5000 on the Mark II is comparable to ISO 1600 on the original 5d, in my opinion. This camera is a workhorse for anyone who needs pro camera features coupled with portability.

There are various ways involving an off camera cord (which allows automatic operation), wireless triggers - try eBay or the ST-ET you mentioned

You need the wireless adapter for this, you cannot do this with the camera.
