Re: need help with 580EX ii on my 70D

Something must be really wrong with either flash or camera or settings.    I routinely use a 580EX2 on my 60D.   Indoors, with white ceiling, I can easily set ISO 100, f/5.6, 1/100 on M, angle flash to ceiling, and the whole room will be lit up.   If shooting a scene with birthday candles I often have to dial FEC to -1 or so, otherwise the candles look unlit - the flash drowns them.

Is this a brand new flash or someone gave you their older unit?    Could be that the bulb is going?
