The built-in flash on many Canon DSLRs is generally considered inadequate for most serious purposes and the Canon pro bodies do not include a flash. The Canon accessory flashes such as the EX are much more versatile and powerful. The EX gets the light far above the lens prevents half-moon shadows in your pictures and does a much better job preventing the red-eye effect. The Canon Speedlite EX Flash allows bouncing the flash off of a standard height ceiling or off of other reflectors such as white walls, white foamcore, Photoflex and other commercial reflectors, These techniques can make a huge difference in your image quality. Another benefit of Canon's accessory flashes is that they significantly help focusing on many EOS cameras.

How do I make my EX operate in totally manual mode, no auto setting, no E-TTL, in other words, flash output is constant no matter what camera settings are changed.. I set my 10D in full manual but noticed flash output adjusted as I adjusted exposure setting on the 10D.. You can: 1. The will fire at maximum each time.
You know what I find interesting The G series cameras, like the G3, actually allow full manual operation of the EX. I wonder why that ability isn't on the DSLR's? It's not really full manual operation. I believe it only fires at full strength like it does on my G2.
Please correct me if I am wrong. To make your EX operate in manual mode cover the two left hot shoe contacts. To make your operate in TTL mode cover the left rear contact. Thanks Wolf, but what will happen if you do this? Does the flash fire at full power all the time? Yes, with the manual hack you will get full flash all the time. With the TTL you can use a slave flash without it prematurely firing. The answer to your question is yes and no. Yes if you put your Camera on manual mode the flash will operate but the flash will calculate the exposure time only.
The no is that the flash can not be set manually. So, obviously this isn't included in the DSLR's so that you are forced to buy a more expensive flash to get that feature. Dave Perspiring photographer. Visit NorwoodPhotos.
LIKES 0. There is no way to use the EX on camera in Manual Mode. Regards, Scott. Jesper Jesper Goldmember. Titus Titus Cream of the Crop. Nabil-A Nabil-A Goldmember.

Updated: February 26, References. The unit attaches to the top of the camera, creating a much stronger light source than the on-camera flash, and is easily detachable when not in use. Using an external flash unit illuminates the subject of your photograph without the harsh, unnatural light of in-camera flashes. An external flash like the Canon EX also reduces redeye, is more powerful than the in-camera flash and allows the photographer full control over lighting the subject. Log in Facebook.
