If you fire 20 continuous flashes, and then fire the flash again repeatedly with short intervals, the safety function may activate and restrict flash firing... While flash firing is restricted, the firing interval is automatically set to approx... 8 to 25 sec... If this happens, allow a rest time of at least 20 to 30 min...

Page 16

When continually firing, do not touch the flash head, batteries, or the area near the battery compartment... When continuous flash or modeling flash is repeatedly fired with short intervals, do not touch the flash head, battery, or the area near the battery compartment... The flash head, batteries, and area near the battery compartment become hot, resulting in the risk of burn...

Page 17

Using AA/R6 batteries other than the alkaline type may cause contact failure due to the irregular shape of the battery contacts...

Page 18

The Quick flash function enables flash shooting when the flash-ready lamp is lit green (before the flash is fully charged)... Quick flash is available regardless of the cameras drive mode setting... The flash output will be approx... 1/2 to 1/3 of the full output, but it is effective for shooting with a shorter firing interval... During manual flash shooting, this function is available when the flash output is set to 1/4 to 1/128... Note that you cannot use Quick flash during wireless flash shooting...

Page 19

When a button or dial is operated, the LCD panel illuminates for approx... 12 sec (p)... When setting a function, the illumination continues until the setting is complete... During normal flash shooting, when set as the sender unit in radio transmission flash shooting (p... 46), or when set as the sender camera unit in linked shooting (p... 67), the LCD panel illuminates in green... When it is set as a receiver unit in wireless flash shooting or when set as a receiver camera unit in linked shooting, the LCD panel illuminates in orange... For the LCD panel Illumination when set as the sender unit during radio transmission wireless shooting, see page 54...

Page 20

If the subject is dark (underexposed) when you check the shot image, move closer to the subject and shoot again... You can also increase the ISO speed when using a digital camera...

Page 21

Select this mode when you want to set the aperture manually... The camera will then automatically set the shutter speed, matching the aperture to obtain a standard exposure based on the metering of the camera... If the scene is dark, a slow sync speed will be used to obtain a standard exposure for both the main subject and background... Standard exposure of the main subject is obtained with the flash light, while a standard exposure of the background is obtained with a long exposure using a slow shutter speed... Since a slow shutter speed will be used for low-light scenes, using a

Page 22

This function optimizes the white balance during flash shooting by transmitting the color temperature information to the EOS DIGITAL camera when the flash fires... When you set the cameras white balance to <A> or <Q>, the function is enabled automatically... Refer to the specifications in your cameras instruction manual to find out if it is compatible with this function...

Page 23

When the cameras shooting mode is set to a fully automatic mode or a Basic Zone mode, the functions with M added to the right side of the page title cannot be set... Set the cameras shooting mode to <d>, <s>, <f>, <a>, or <F> (Creative Zone mode) to enable all the operations in this chapter...

Page 24

With a similar procedure as exposure compensation, you can adjust the flash output... The flash exposure compensation amount can be set up to 3 stops in 1/3-stop increments...

Page 25

If a correct exposure cannot be obtained when FE lock is performed, <Q> blinks in the viewfinder... Move closer to the subject or open the aperture, and perform FE lock again... You can also set a higher ISO speed and perform FE lock again when using a digital camera...

Page 26

With high-speed sync, you can shoot with a flash even at shutter speeds that exceed the maximum flash sync speed... This is convenient when you want to shoot in the aperture-priority AE <f> mode (open aperture) with background blur in locations such as outdoors in daylight...

Page 27

Shooting with a slow shutter speed and second-curtain sync captures the trajectory of the light sources of a moving subject, such as car lights, in a natural way... The flash fires right before the exposure finishes (shutter closes)...

Page 28

By pointing the flash head toward a ceiling or wall, the flash light will bounce off the surface before illuminating the subject, making it possible to soften the shadows of the subject for a more natural-looking shot... This shooting method is called Bounce shooting...

Page 29

Since the flash guide number decreases in bounce shooting, focusing with AF- assist beam using a series of small flashes may not be possible... During bounce shooting, using infrared AF-assist beam is recommended (P... Fn-05-1/p... 87)...

Page 30

If you attach the provided bounce adapter to the Speedlite and bounce the flash light on the ceiling or wall, etc... , you can spread the flash light across a larger area and suppress the shadows of the subject... Also, if the flash head is turned 90 upward to bounce the flash light on the ceiling, etc... , the diffused flash light emitted out of the side facing the subject will be casted on the front of the subject (shooting distance guidance: within approx... 1... 5 m/4... 9 ft... , at ISO 100), further suppressing the shadow of the subject... When shooting portraits, catchlight effect can also be obtained...

Page 31

When the bounce adapter is attached, or when the bounce adapter and the wide panel are used together, underexposure may result since the flash output decreases... Take necessary countermeasures such as increasing ISO speed on the camera or applying flash exposure compensation (p... 24)...

Page 32

Flash coverage (the range covered by the flash light) can be set automatically or manually... With the <L> (automatic) setting, the flash coverage is adjusted automatically according to the focal length (shooting angle of view) of the lens in use and the image sensor size (p... 22)... With the <d> (manual) setting, you can manually set flash coverage in the range of 24 to 105 mm...

Page 33

When you use the flashs built-in wide panel together, you can perform flash shooting with ultra-wide angle lenses with a focal length up to 14 mm...

Page 34

You can set the flash output from 1/1 full output to 1/128 power in 1/3- step increments... Use a flash meter (commercially available) to determine the required flash output to obtain a correct flash exposure... Setting the cameras shooting mode to <W> or <q> is recommended...

Page 35

When using an EOS-1D series camera, the flash exposure level can be manually set before shooting... This is effective when you are close to the subject... Use a 18% gray reflector (commercially available) and shoot as follows...

Page 36

Modeling flash (by operating the camera) is disabled when using the flash with EOS M3, EOS M2, EOS M, EOS Elan II/Elan II E/50/50E, EOS REBEL 2000/300, EOS REBEL G/500N, EOS REBEL K2/3000V, EOS REBEL XS N/REBEL G II/3000N/66, EOS IX, or EOS IX Lite/IX7... Set C... Fn-02 to 1 or 2 (p... 83), and fire modeling flash using the test flash button...

Page 37

When shooting with flash under incandescent lighting (a tungsten light source), reddish, unnatural colors may result on the subject background where the flash light does not reach... By attaching the provided color filter to the flash, automatic adjustments are made by the cameras white balance function so that both the subject and background can be shot with appropriate white balance...

Page 38

With cameras that are not compatible with color temperature information transmission (p... 22), take a shot and set it for manual white balance using the color filter in the shooting environment, set the white balance to <O>, and shoot...

Page 39

When the cameras shooting mode is set to a fully automatic mode or a Basic Zone mode, the operations in this chapter are not available... Set the cameras shooting mode to <d>, <s>, <f>, <a>, or <F> (Creative Zone mode)...

Radio Transmission This chapter describes wireless flash shooting using the radio transmission wireless sender/receiver function... For the accessories required for radio transmission wireless shooting, see the system map (p... 90)... For the regions of use, restrictions, and precautions related to radio transmission, see page 103...

Page 46

Using a Canon Speedlite (sender/receiver) equipped with the radio transmission wireless shooting function, you can easily perform wirelessly-controlled shooting with multiple flashes in the same way as normal E-TTL II/E-TTL autoflash shooting... The system is designed so that the settings of the 430EX III-RT (sender) attached to the camera are automatically applied to the wirelessly controlled 430EX III-RT (receiver)... Therefore, you do not need to operate the receiver unit while shooting...

Page 47

You can divide the receiver units into two or three groups and perform E-TTL II/E-TTL autoflash shooting while changing the flash ratio (flash output rate)... In addition, you can set and shoot in a different flash mode for each firing group with up to 5 groups (p... 48)...

Page 48

Wireless shooting using radio transmission has advantages over wireless shooting using optical transmission, such as being less affected by obstacles, and not having to point the receiver units wireless sensor toward the sender unit... The main functional differences are as follows...

Page 49

Check the flash sync speed (X = 1/*** sec... ) of your camera and shoot with a shutter speed up to 1 stop slower than the flash sync speed (Example: When X = 1/250 sec... , radio transmission wireless shooting is possible from 1/125 sec... to 30 sec... )... When you set the shutter speed 1 stop slower than the flash sync speed, the <k> warning icon will disappear...

Page 50

To avoid interference with wireless flash systems using radio transmission used by other photographers or with other devices using radio waves (wireless), you can change the transmission channel and wireless radio ID... Set the same channel and ID for both the sender unit and receiver unit...

Page 51

Setting the Transmission Channel/Wireless Radio ID Use the following procedure to set the transmission channels and wireless radio IDs of the sender unit and receiver unit... Set the same channel and ID for both the sender unit and receiver unit... Note that the procedure is the same for the sender unit and receiver unit...

Page 52

You can scan the radio reception status and set the sender units transmission channel automatically or manually... When the channel is set to AUTO, the channel with the best reception signal is set automatically... When setting the channel manually, you can reset the transmission channel while referring to the scan results...

Page 53

You can set whether or not to fire the sender unit as a wireless flash that controls the receiver unit... When sender flash firing is set to ON, the sender unit is fired as firing group A...

Page 54

During radio transmission wireless shooting, the sender units LCD panel illuminates or turns off according to the charge status of the sender unit and receiver units (firing groups)... The sender units LCD panel illuminates if the sender unit and receiver units are not fully charged... When the sender unit and receiver units are fully charged, the LCD panel illumination will turn off after approx... 12 sec... As the charge for the sender unit and receiver units becomes insufficient when you take a picture, the sender units LCD panel will be illuminated again...

Check that the <Q> receiver flash-ready icon is lit on the sender units LCD panel (<G> is not displayed)...

Page 57

When you need more flash output or you want to perform lighting more easily, you can increase the number of receiver units and fire them as a single flash... To add receiver units, perform the same procedure as Autoflash Shooting Using One Receiver Unit (p... 55)... Set the firing group to A, B, or C (p... 59)... The flash will not fire if it is set to D or E...

Page 58

You can use two or more sender units (sender units + receiver units = maximum of 16 units)... By preparing multiple cameras with sender units attached, you can perform wireless flash shooting by changing cameras while keeping the same lighting (receiver units)... Note that when using two or more sender units, the color of the <D> lamp varies depending on the order in which the power was turned on... The first sender (main sender) is green, and the second and subsequent senders (sub-senders) are orange...

Page 59

You can divide the receiver units into two firing groups, A and B, and adjust the lighting balance (flash ratio) for shooting... The exposure is controlled automatically so that the total flash output of firing groups A and B results in the standard exposure...

Page 60

You can add firing group C to firing groups A and B... C is convenient to set lighting so as to eliminate the subjects shadow... The basic setting procedure is the same as Autoflash Shooting with Two Receiver Groups...

Page 61

If you need more flash output or wish to perform more sophisticated lighting, you can increase the number of receiver units... Simply set an additional receiver unit to the firing group (A, B, or C) whose flash output you want to increase... You can increase the number of receiver units up to 15 units in total...

Page 62

This section describes wireless (multiple flash) shooting using manual flash... You can shoot with a different flash output setting for each receiver unit (firing group)... Configure all the settings on the sender unit...

Page 63

When using an EOS DIGITAL camera released in and after 2012, such as the EOS-1D X, you can shoot in a different flash mode set for each firing group with up to 5 groups (A, B, C, D, and E)... The flash modes that can be set are " E-TTL II/E-TTL autoflash, # Manual flash, and $ Auto external flash metering... When the flash mode is " or $, exposure is controlled to result in standard exposure for the main subject as a single group... This function is for advanced users who are very knowledgeable and experienced in lighting...
