600D Flash Question
I am thinking of buying a flash for my 600D and the other evening I had the opportunity of testing a friends 403EXII and whilst we got it to work off-camera I have some further questions that I am hoping I can get some help with on this forum.
1, If my 600D has a wireless transmitter why do I have to turn the receiver on the flash towards the camera, is it because the use of the term wireless literally means no wires rather than using wifi type wireless? Am I correct in thinking it is the 600D on-camera flash that is actually triggering the 430EXII?
2, Is it possible to get the 430EXII to fire off-camera without the on-camera flash actually firing? The manual says it can and the images in the manual show this configuration but we could not get it to work.
Any thoughts and advice appreciated.
