Re: Speedlight minus built-in flash?

This camera won't do what you want. It only fires ETTL-II from the built in flash.

 

You might be able to put a block in front of the flash and beam it toward the remote.

Re: Speedlight minus built-in flash?

It seems Photoolex M500 is not supported by the 1300D, although the add implied otherwise.  It's a shame, because it triggers and would be perfect if I could just stop the internal flash from firing.  Hay-ho. 

 

Oh well, looks like I'm getting a Canon speedlight for christmas then.  Smiley Happy

 

Thanks for your help ppeople.

Re: Speedlight minus built-in flash?

It is also your camera. I am assuming that the M500 is being "passively" optically triggered. It *needs* the 1300D to flash to know when to flash itself. On My T6S, I can turn the flash power down so that it will not influence the shot, you can't do that on the 1300D.
