Flash Going Crazy!!!
Dec 13, 2012

I had my Canon 580ex on my 5D mark 111 and was rotating the flash head to do some bouncing when the flash started pulsing a flash!  Then it stopped.  The other day it happened again so I called Canon and the tec support had no idea what was happing!  I finally figured it out on my own.  If you press the depth of field preview button on your 5D mark 111 it will send out this pulsing light from the flash to act as a modeling light!

I called Canon tec support back to fill him in on what was happening.  While I was on the phone he grabbed the same model camera and flash and said, Wow I did not know that.  So before any of you freak out like I did I wanted to pass the word.
