Happy Monday 🙂
I have a Canon 6D and a Canon Speedlight 580 (works great when on camera - no problems at all)
I am now trying to set up a make-do studio situation and am using an 'iShoot' trigger and receiver for the flash.
I have it all set up and when I attach the trigger to my camera and click the 'test' button (on the actual trigger), everything fires and syncs great...so I know the trigger and receiver and flash are all working together. However, my camera is not reading or receiving data from the flash, so when I press the shutter on the camera, the flash doesn't go off.
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?
I have attached a few photos to help explain what is going on - and a video here
The flash should fire , even if it is in ETTL.
The only thing that will cause it not to fire is using Liveview. Are you using Liveview?
If you are, you can go into the 6D menu and disable “Silent Shooting” and this will allow the flash trigger to fire in Liveview.
It is pretty frustrating! Just changed all the batteries and same thing. Tried M and ETTL.
I have take a video just incase it is something SO simple that I am totally missing it:
