major 430ex issue
May 21, 2007

I have posted on this before, but the last instance was enough to make me very upset.

My 430ex has been throwing out a wild strobe, I discussed some things that could be causing this in earlier threads...

Being very conscious to have the flash tightly on the hot-shoe, keeping my hands away from bumping the DOF or any other buttons...

I was about to get a photo of my fiancee' at her Masters Ceremony and WWHOAAA the doors opened up to heaven in a low lit room and my 430ex with diffuser became the center of attention! This was complete randomness and I was purposely holding the 300d by the grips only with my fingertips...

What is my next step of action here. I am purchasing a 30d next week, should I wait and see if it happens at all on that too? Its just one of those things when I try to show someone who might know, it won't happen! But it ALWAYS does when I least want it too.

Thanks,
Andrew
