  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: Canon Speedlite Flash Buyers Guide - Which is right for me?

    Like other camera manufacturers, Canon has developed a "system" of flash units that can be used with any of their current model camera bodies.

  5. Red face using the 580 ex II as a slave

    I have the canon xti with the 430ex speedlight. I am thinking about buying the 580ex II and using it as a slave. Is this possible and what other equipment will I need to make it all work? What mount will I need to hold the flash? I am hoping it will be wireless. Thanks for your help

  12. When "First Curtain" just doesnt do the job...

    I was playing around last night with the lights and noticed I could catch the shutter if I went above 1/250" on my 5D... I also tried "Second Curtain" as well but with the same effect... so knowing my total lack of knowledge of lighting is there a way to *get past* the fastest shutter synch speed?
