ETTL fail

580ex II. Friend or foe?
I swear this thing has mind of its own. Photo shot in ETTL mode, jpeg file straight outta camera. Boom!


  1. What do you mean, the old couple across the lake are perfectly lit up. I'd crop the photo though...the blown out people in the foreground are a bit distracting.

  2. Klein may have a point. If your metering was on spot or center-wieghted and your focus point was set to the middle, then the flash may have tried to send the right exposure accross the pond. But, I haven't tried the 3200 watt 580ex yet, so I'm not quite sure how it responds.
