Flash Exposure Bracketing T3i

Hi, I am new to Canon and this is my first post.  I just got the T3i and believe it is not possible to do FEB with the built in flash.  Am I correct on that?  The direction to do that is with an external speedlite flash.  Which Speedlite model does FEB, and works best with the T3i?  Plus I like to use bounce flash too.

I am sorry, but FEB is not available when using the built-in flash.  You will need to use an external Speedlite flash, such as the Speedlite 600EX-RT or the Speedlite 430EX II.  Both of these allow you to do bounch flash as well.

Hi Mike,


I think you might have meant the 580EX II rather than the 430EX II. I checked and can't find how to set the 430EX II for FEB at all. 


As far as I know only the 550EX, 580EX,  580EX II, 600EX-RT and the macro flashes MT-24EX and MR14-EX support the Flash Exposure Bracketing feature.
