470ex-AI with Rebel SL3

Hi - The AI.B feature does not seem to work with the SL3. Am I doing something wrong or the 470ex-ai does not support this feature with the SL3? Thanks.

Greetings,

This will answer your question.  The SL3 is not supported.

I don't see the SL3 on that list, are you sure it is up to date?  I also see that the SL2 *is* supported.

 

I also see that all the cameras have this note:

*3: Possible with the AI.B Full-auto distance measurement start button.

Could that be the OP's problem?

Thanks. I now know what I was doing wrong. I had the bounce adapter on the flash. How was I to know the AI wouldn’t work with it on Smiley Sad

Thats helpful to note.

 

I grabbed this list from the 470's webpage.  Not sure how current or up to date it was.
