p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Cant get 580EX2 into ETTL mode


I tried turning off/on, taking out batteries, and on several 1D bodies

All other modes work when I cycle through - but ETTL doesnt show up

Any thoughts ?

Thanks
Jay

Sorry I didn't see this sooner. Since it's Canon-specific it might have got more responses if it had been in the Canon forum.

Anyway...

Have you tried it not mounted on a camera?

Is there any letter at all in the upper left corner of the LCD, like an "E," or is that position blank?

Have you been able to do it before but not now, or is this model of flash new to you and you've never been able to get it into ETTL?

Try changing C.Fn 05 to 0 should set it back to E-TTL

Yeah, that setting is what I was trying to discern when I asked him "Is there any letter at all in the upper left corner of the LCD, like an "E," or is that position blank?" but he never answered back.

Adam73 and BrianO

Thank you very much - that was just the problem
I got the answer from Canon CPS

And I thought I wrote a response to that effect some time ago but it seems it was never posted - my fault and I apologize

Thanks again

To BrianO - I saw your thread on home studios but havent yet posted b/c my studio/living room is so cluttered w stuff it looks more like a pig sty than a studio

Best
Jay

I know how that goes. I may never have a working studio myself; my remodeling project is turning into the Winchester Mystery House of the North.
