60D using onboard flash to trigger a 430EX II. Can you avoid the on camera flash?
Dec 30, 2012

I've been playing with this really neat feature.  You can trigger a remote 430 or 560 in slave mode using the pop up flash.  The problem I'm having is I cannot disable the pop up flash and both always fire.  It looks like in the menu that you should be able to disable the pop up for the shot but no matter what setting I pick both always fire. If I can disable the pop up it would be a very powerful combination for an amateur like me...

Anyone have any experience with this??

Thanks in advance!

Trevor.
