a: Fully Automatic Flash Photography When you set the camera’s shooting mode to <V> (Program AE) or fully automatic mode, you can shoot in E-TTL II/E-TTL fully automatic flash mode. Set the flash mode to <a>. Press the <E> button of the ...
E-TTL II/E-TTL Autoflash by Shooting Mode Simply set the camera’s shooting mode to <X> (shutter-priority AE), <W> (aperture-priority AE), or <q> (manual exposure) and you can use E-TTL II/E-TTL autoflash suitable for each shooting mode. Select this mode when you want to set the shutter speed manually. The camera will then automatically set the aperture matching the shutter speed to obtain a standard exposure based on the metering of the camera.
E-TTL II/E-TTL Autoflash by Shooting Mode Auto Zoom Adjustment to Image Sensor Size EOS DIGITAL cameras have three sizes of image sensors, and the effective focal length of the attached lens varies depending on the model. 430EX III-RT/430EX III automatically recognizes the image sensor size of the EOS DIGITAL camera and automatically sets the flash coverage that is ideal for the effective focal length of the lens in the range of 24-105 mm.
Advanced Flash Photography This chapter describes advanced shooting operations utilizing the flash functions. When the camera’s 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 camera’s shooting mode to <d>, <s>, <f>, <a>, or <F>...

c High-speed SyncN 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. Press <8>.
r Second-curtain SyncN 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). Press <8>.
m Bounce 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”. Set the Bounce Direction You can turn the flash head while pressing the <z>...
m Bounce 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). Catchlight Shooting Using the catchlight panel when shooting a portrait enables you to capture reflected light in a person’s eyes and create a more vivid expression.
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. Attach the bounce adapter. “Canon” logo Attach the adapter securely to the flash head until it clicks in place, as shown.
m Bounce 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).
e: Setting the Flash CoverageN 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).
e: Setting the Flash CoverageN Wide Panel When you use the flash’s built-in wide panel together, you can perform flash shooting with ultra-wide angle lenses with a focal length up to 14 mm. Pull out the wide panel. Pull out the protruding area located in ...
q: Manual FlashN 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 camera’s shooting mode to <W>...
q: Manual FlashN Metered Manual Flash Exposures 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.
Modeling FlashN When the camera’s depth-of-field preview button is pressed, the flash fires continuously for approx. 1 sec. This feature is called “modeling flash”. This is effective for checking shadow effects on the subject with the flash light and the lighting balance during wireless flash shooting (p.45, 71).
Clearing Speedlite SettingsN 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. Attaching the color filter to the flash head does not affect the flash ...
