I've had similar problems. Usually it's because the grip has worked loose from the body. Make sure the knob that attaches the grip to the body is tight.

WTF? my posts were deleted AGAIN!...
...I'm still trying to figure out why they charged me freakin' sales tax on an online store, I've not heard of a Louisiana Canon B&M store here...
So, question one:
Does this flash come with some type cable to hook to the hotshoe to the flash, to allow you to shoot with camera in one hand, flash in the other?
Looking a the Canon ST-E3-RT. I found it on amazon.com for $299 shipped, that's not a bad price is it? If so, that starts me off well for this and future growth with flash off camera.
Questions three and more:
...would I be able to get some cheaper flashes right now to use with this flash? For instance, I'm thinking of trying to learn manual shooting (based on a great CreativeLive class the other week), could I get something like the Yongnuo YN-560 Speedlights, and have them fire off (optically?) when they sense the main 600EX-RT go off?
CC really only makes sense for professionals who use most of their creative suite tools. Between Lightroom and PSE, shouldn't the hobbyist market be covered? I really don't se why the whole internets went nuts over this. Nothing in this digital universe is really tangible or "owned" for any significant period of time. Shoot film or pick up a paintbrush! Art will go on.
A lot of us might not be pros (yet), but we still like to do the heavy retouching that only PS will allow us to do.
Lightroom is enough for most, but not all of us. I use it to get me into the ballpark before going into PS. The rest of the time it is just a photo organiser.
Because of their introductory pricing, I suspect many will access the service for the first year, while holding on to those copies of CS6.
I'm also thinking about going to CS6 from my current CS5 and watch how things go with subscription model, but what about this Adobe Application Manager that I apparently am forced to download for CS6 and all the complaints about it on the web?
What truly useful feature does CS6 have over CS5?
I'd not heard of this yet...do you have any links pertaining to Adobe App Manager, and problems with it?
Just from the sound of it, it sounds like the Windows Manager type thing that MS came out with a few years ago when trying to update things, etc....
According to the Adobe site, all you have to do is show a Student ID that is valid, and having a valid .edu email address also helps.
Frankly, I'm working now to register with a local college, for $50 I can get a student ID, and I will use that to buy the CS6 suite, for my own use. Plain, simple, legal.
And I have read the FAQ from Adobe themselves, and it is perfectly legal to use this educational copy for commercial uses.
Look under the "How can I use my software" section.
...So far I see subscription as more affordable way to get an expensive software even if it means paying more in the long term.
