Did this video help you?

Ashley Miller: Finally this works, thank you for the awesome video!

DonkeyProductz: What flash were you using?

Hygoog: It finally works! Thank you so much!

jidoe: Hi Mark, Do you know if I can use my 60D to wirelessly fire a couple 580EXII Speedlites (using the wirelss function you go over in this video) AND simultaneously fire a studio flash with a Pocket Wizard II? I'd like to use my Speedlite strobes and studio flash at the same time.

Seanny D: When shooting in LIVE view, for those who don't know, there is an option for the autofocusing for situations. Live View is the default where the white box you see on the monitor will be the area for the camera to focus on. This is good for if you want to get low to the ground and focus on a subject by turning the wheel to move that focus box. The second option is the Live view Face Detection. Obvious what it means. The camera, in autofocus, will look for faces to focus on when the shutter button is halfway pressed or via remote. The last one is Quick Mode. I use this to autofocus quickly like during sports games where it'll be easier to look through live view than the viewfinder. Good for focusing on fast movement on the spot. Using any of the other two will take time for the camera to focus.

[ Closed ]: Hi how do I i fire it with High speed sync

NicholasPersaud: Your videos are great and very informative. Thank you. 

Jessica Sego: Thank you for posting this video!! I am so excited. My question is, how far away can the off camera flash be and still read my camera's trigger? It doesn't seem like it can be very far unless I am doing something wrong!

Cardboard Tube Knight: I have been trying to figure out how to set the actual flash all day. 

Lauren Harris: Thank you so much Mark! What stand and umbrella do you have the flash on? Thank you again for a wonderful tutorial.

Kyle cas: how do i fire it wirelessly with out the pop up flash?

Dawn Combs: I have had the 403exii and 60d for almost 2 years and have never figured out how to use it off the camera until now Thank you so much. 

travis walden: ive had my 60D for a little over a week now and i had no idea i could fire my 430EX II like this!!! no more need for pocket wizards! thanks man!!! im trying to get better at using off camera flash as well for portraits and if i ever did invest in a second flash, would the same concept work to fire both at the same time?

DeepBleakness: godox 680 flash dose work wireless with 60D ?

gurudeclan: Would it work with 430ex (1 not 2) ?

Daniel Danciu: nice job Mark

Matt Terry: Okay, it MUST be popped up to trigger the flash. But what if I don't want/need the fill flash? It is just there all the time I suppose?

Bobbi jensen: Does this negate the need for an ettl flash cord?

gomer113: You may have already answered this or something similar, and I apologize if you did, but I must have missed it. I'm new to DSLR photography, and I recently purchased a 60D. I'm intrigued by the 430EX II due to its in-camera settings control and wireless ability. What I'd like to know is, do I need a separate master flash or a separate controller (as in something not already built-in to the camera) to use the 430EX II wirelessly? I would like to experiment with the pop-up flash and slave flash both simultaneously and wireless-only if possible. Also, in dummy terms, did you pop up the built-in flash and disable it within the menu and allow only the external flash to fire?

fredo19: If the flash supports ettl does the 60d built in trigger works with ettl?

Justin Boger: I don't have flash control in my menu on my 60d under red eye reduction. What mode is your selector wheel on in this video?

Fredrik Pettersson: I'm wondering if the internal flash always needs to fire when the camera is triggering an external flash. Trying out a new Nissin 622 mkII and the slave function is definitely working inside a room where the light bounces good but I wonder if it will work outside when it's dark. Is the "wireless" function actually based on built in-flashes or is there a wireless transmitter in the camera?

Leandro Guimarães: That was reeeeally helpfull! Great lesson!

rajesh doddi: thank you so much.

Matt Terry: I can't seem to turn off the built-in flash on the 60D during the exposure. What am I doing wrong?!

Martin Martin?: Great video thanks. Just want to point out, OPTICAL trigger only - NOT WiFi when Canon says "EasyWireless" - very misleading! >:-(

nlh835: Do you have a video that demonstrates how to set the camera/flash on camera? I have a 550EX Speedlite, and, will be doing a wedding shoot. I need to refine my techniques with the flash so I don't end up with shots blown out. I end up avoiding the flash but it should be a very helpful tool. Thanks!

Learning with Mark Warren: You're welcome!

Douglas Gladney: Just thought I 'd ask but what do you think of the Sony Alpha a77 in a99 mirrorless cameras

CocaColaJenny: Hi Mark, great video - very helpful. I want to buy a remote flash controller, but I don't know what I should buy (I have 60D camera)? Which one were you using?

Learning with Mark Warren: If you control any Canon ETTL flash using the popup your max is 1/250. That's just using this setup. A manual flash like a Vivitar 285HV, Yongnuo 560II, etc is only going to get a max of 1/250.If you control a flash like the 430EXII with a 580EXII as the master on the hot shoe, your max is 1/8000 via ETTL HSS. If you use the Pocketwizard Flex System (miniTT1//FlexTT5) with Canon branded flashes you can achieve up to 1/8000 via radio triggering. The built trigger on the 60D is maxed at 1/250.

mojama7: that external flash - is it has to be some kind of special lamp or any lamps can be fired with flashes from pop ups lamps?

Oliver Watson: cheers Mark!

C4N4Di4N1: it will always fire but if you set it right it will not show on the picture ... the flash you see is only to ACTIVATE the wireless flash when set on wireless second option the one with the external flash logo ONLY

Learning with Mark Warren: I'm using a Giottos MT-9251 which has since been discontinued. The current model is the MT-9261. For the ball head I'm using a Manfrotto 486RC2 which has also been discontinued. It is now replaced with the 496RC2. I got everything from BHPhoto.

Felipe Neira Ochoa: thanx, very clear and easy to understand.

antonio70: Thank you!!

defg0003: Mark, this video is exceptional. Your approach and manner, for me, was very refreshing and effective. Buried under an avalanche of esoteric manuals and verbose and confusing manuals, field guides, and "how to's" - your straight forward uTube was short and sweet breath of fresh air. Thank you. I look forward to watching your future efforts.

smirkingdevil: Nice instructional video. I will have to try this out with my Canon 5D Mk III and 580EX II. I think you just saved me from having to buy a wired off-camera flash cord. :-)

Learning with Mark Warren: I've owned the 50D & 60D but have used the 5D quite often. I upgraded from the 50D to the 60D because the noise at higher ISO was much better. The 50D also suffered from some banding issues at higher ISO's. The only thing I don't like about the 60D is that they removed the lens micro-adjust feature but it hasn't been an issue with my shooting. While I love the 5D Mk1 there's much better technology in the newer cams. I hear the 70D will be out soon and will add back semi pro features of the 50D.

Chris O baby: @markhyo okay thanks..

Steve Gait: Mark, I already have the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 F2.8 L IS Mark 2 II USM. I was looking for a zoom to 75mm

azzurorso: On second though... you're possibly right. I found this info on some website but I had the chance to try hands on and I couldn't use the external flash without the popup. Tha't's a great delusion...

Vec777: Great Video thanks! I understand the concept of the pop up being the trigger, but still can't grasp the concept that it shows up in a mirror shot and seems to add light to the exposure. Let me explain: Setting is in the middle ie just my 430exII to fire, shoot camera in to a mirror so the pop up and the externals are just visible, and clearly the pop up shows along with the external. Surely if it was a split second pre flash then only the 430ex would be visible in the shot?? So must add light?

Learning with Mark Warren: Some Yongnuo ETTL flashes MAY be compatible but they must be ETTL and not manual flashes. You'll probably have to research to know which ones will work with Canon's wireless flash system.

mgraphique2010: Thank you for your quick reply Now I have the choice between these three cameras: 50D, 60D, 5D mk1 only advantage here is that 60D is the video feature, not found on other knowing that I have a somewhat limited budget ... so and I already possesses a 500D, but I have a small event this weekend to photograph, I would need a second camera

Learning with Mark Warren: It works about about the same way as the 430EXII. Basically set it to slave mode and follow the same procedures. The 60D popup flash will control almost all of the EX line flashes.

juzride: you're probably in "P" mode, try other modes, the Tv/Av/M should be fine.

Photography By Milan: Sweet thanks a lot...I will order 430 by end of this week. Does it support high sync speed when is set off camera and trigered in the same way tou just showed us? I want use it as fill flash fir outdoor portraits.

Nicole Sela: What tripod are you using?
