Re: Canon 90 EX for beginner as a Master unit?

I've just read the online manual for the 90EX, and I think your 90EX on camera and 430EX II with an umbrella would work.

Apparently there is no picture-taking burst of light from the 90EX, when used as a master. There's just a pre-flash controlling the 430EX II on a light stand, in your case.

But it will give you wireless control, and E-TTL control, over one external lightstand-mounted flash.

And you can add more flash guns later.


I have a T1i that at the moment will not turn on, and I hope the problem is only a dead battery. I wanted to look at flash operating menus on the camera.
