Canon 7D Af-assist beam not firing.
Mar 17, 2014

Need help getting my af-assist beam to fire!

In low light conditions when a normal af-lock cannot be achieved the assist beam shoud fire right? On my 7D it does not. I am not in servo, and the setting is turned on. Does the 7D even have an assist beam?

Next question:

How do i get the beam to fire when I have a external flash not mounted on the camera. The flash is a yn-560iii with a Rf 603.

Help would be greatly appreciated!
