Ashley Miller: Finally this works, thank you for the awesome video!
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.
NicholasPersaud: Your videos are great and very informative. Thank you.
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.
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!
DonkeyProductz: What flash were you using?
Lauren Harris: Thank you so much Mark! What stand and umbrella do you have the flash on?
Thank you again for a wonderful tutorial.
Hygoog: It finally works! Thank you so much!
Cardboard Tube Knight: I have been trying to figure out how to set the actual flash all day.
[ Closed ]: Hi how do I i fire it with High speed sync
Bobbi jensen: Does this negate the need for an ettl flash cord?
Kyle cas: how do i fire it wirelessly with out the pop up flash?
DeepBleakness: godox 680 flash dose work wireless with 60D ?
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?
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?
fredo19: If the flash supports ettl does the 60d built in trigger works with ettl?
Leandro Guimarães: That was reeeeally helpfull! Great lesson!
Matt Terry: I can't seem to turn off the built-in flash on the 60D during the exposure.
What am I doing wrong?!
Daniel Danciu: nice job Mark
gurudeclan: Would it work with 430ex (1 not 2) ?
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?
rajesh doddi: thank you so much.
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?
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?
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
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
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?
EDERSON DA SILVA ROCHA: Perfeito! Já havia entrado em alguns outros vídeos e não tinha encontrado a
solução. Seu vídeo me ajudou muito. Muito obrigado!
