After some good advice my first OFC set up arrived and used it at first event yesterday.
Really good results just firing flashes off camera using three tranceivers and two 580exIIs , no problem at all through Ettl worked a treat.
However on the night during the disco / dance the ettl just was not cutting it and was shooting far too low power to light the dance floor in big room so went to manual flash power of 1/4 which was what was needed. from here starting having issues . the first camera ( 5d3 with 622 ) kept resetting itself to ETTL after a couple of minutes of non use , the second camera ( 5dmk2 + 622 ) would not go into manual mode on the flash function screen at all. I was using one flash ( 580exII + 622 ) on light stand for the two cameras.
Tried going through the booklet but its written pretty badly and cant see anything that offers an explanation , is it possible to fire two cameras with manual flash settings for one or two flashes ?
Is there any reason that the camera sets itself back to ETTL ?
thank you in advance Andrewwww.andrew-davies.com
