Hello all, For anyone interested in the UK/EU, I've just bought a new 430EX II speedlight from Asda Direct for £175.45 (incl. delivery - use the discount code "camera10" to get this price). - compare:http://camerapricebuster.co.uk/prod.php?n=CanonSpeedlite430EXII&p=717 You can them claim £20 cashback from Canon http://www.canon.co.uk/summercashback/index.html (scroll along the lenses section). Hope this helps someone!
Is it true that, you can not use AF Assist light on Manual, Av, Tv mode? (using 430ex ii)
my new 430ex ii assist light not firing:Pitch Dark LocationUnder custom setting, AF Assist light enabled: 0One Shot AF ModeSingle Shot DriveFlash on ettlManual or AV modeI better visit canon service.
even my cheapo yongnou does give off a AF pattern that works well, I can't imagine everything is right with your camera. Try doing a factory reset on the camera.
