Over the past month I've done a couple of days of indoor shooting. Both times my 7D and 430EX stopped communicating with one another after around an hour or two. My shots suddenly became completely overexposed, and I had to un-attach and re-attach the flash to get it to work.

I was wondering if anyone else has gone through this, and if there is some underlying reason I am missing that may have caused this.

Thanks in advance

Just a weekend hack...

7D, Rebel XTi, Sigma 12-24, Tamron 17-50 - 2.8, 50mm f/1.8' Canon 28-135 IS, Canon EF 70-200 f/4 IS and 430EX

That has happened to me a few times with my 580 flashes. Loose connections. You don't want to over tighten thread lock so after an hour of waving your gear around things loosen up. One time I forgot to lock my 580II. Same thing.

The solution is always simple. Getting there is the hard part.
