I have a 420 EZ and a 300D .... the flash does everything fine (communicates aperture and focal L, fires IR and focus light, focusses)
BUT it will not fire the flash ....

I assumed the 300D as an EOS should work with this flash but it doesnt...

The 300D works fine with a 420 EX and the 420 EZ fires with my G2...

Now I am not sure which of the components is not working properly ...

Does anybody have some knowledge about this?


for years my 420ez was sitting around, now i use it with canon 30d and canon M,

and with an umbrella, its a great flash, i can adjust output to 1/32 power ...

my canon 300ez cannot get adjusted ... fires at full power, still god for the umbrella
