Re: Manual flash setting?

I agree with Jeff - for pure flash shooting have the camera in manual, flash in ETTL mode, use FEC to get the exposure right.

A little off-topic I know, but I sometimes get a problem if I'm trying to bounce the flash using the above settings - my 580 EX fails to fire at all, whereas it happily fires in "straight ahead" mode. I know it's me not the flash, but where am I going wrong ? I'm happy to rule out flash recycle time, it's not that.
