Question about Cameras

952AF/CAN Flash Hi, I've just purchased a 952AF/CAN flash. I plan on using it with my Canon EOS Rebel XTi digital SLR. However, i can't seem to make it work! It charges well, it does discharge using the test button as well. It does not appear to be in sync with the camera. I get nothing but dark gray or black pics. Am I not using it properly? I tried using in all the settings (i.e. Program, Fully Auto etc.) without any success. Help!!!!!

I guess you did the basic thing and see if the flash fires when pressing the shutter button.

I don't know the Rebel itself,but I can suggest a few general things. I will be speculating here for you.

Make sure that in the setup for the flash, that the curtain is in the correct mode. If I remember right there is something about when the flash will fire. Check this in the instruction manual.

Also check the flash sync speed range. If the sync speed is out of range for the flash, it will fire at the wrong time. If you want to experiment, try using 1/60 for a start just to see if it works.

If you call Canon tech support, they will help you.

Be aware that the built in flash does not pop up automatically in all picture modes. Try it when in the different modes (on the mode dial) and see what I mean. Does it popo up when manually opened ?, (small button on front left hand side of the viewing pentaprism/flash housing.)

EOS Rebel XTi 400D flash not popping up


Flash will automatically pop out only in AUTO mode, if the camera needs some additional lightning. In manual modes, you should use the flash button located at the left down side of the flash compartment, to manually force the flash to pop up

You'll need to use your camera in manual mode.

If you want the subject sharp, but the background blurred, use a large aperture and high speed exposure. This will reduce the focal length.

Remember that a large apertures are often used for night shots because they allow more light through the lense. A fast exposure will prevent the shot from being over exposed if you are taking it in daylight.

Flash photography is not recommended for the effect you are after.

Tamron lens for Xti?


if it is an auto focus lens that works on one eos camera, it should work on almost all of them. the only known exception is that some high end extenders will not fit the eos1dmarkII as it protrudes into the opening too far.
but a good rule is that if it fits without any obstruction issues, it should work. try cleaning contacts on the lens and camera body. if that doesn't fix it, talk to Tamron. you can use it manually, but will not be as easy and you would get less predictable results.

my suggestion is to always go with lens from camera maker.

sounds like there is an issue with the tamron lens. not the camera.
good luck

Flash override


You can use the camera in the P,Tv,Av, or M modes without the flash popping up or firing. P would be the easiest to use.
