canon 580EXII speedlite out of control
Jan 18, 2013

Trying to figure out why my flash gives out a large stroboscopic flash while i'm shooting. I don't think I'm doing anything different then usual. But from time to time like the other day I'm shooting a party and i'm setting up the shot (starting to bring the camera to my eye) with people in a dark place and wham a huge burst of repetitive flashes goes off. Needless to tell you that the subject don't really appreciate being blinded and this professional feels like he's an amateur. Am I pressing something on the 5Dmrk3 that trigers this? It used to happen on my 1dsmrk2 as well.
