Just got my 6D, upgrading from 60D. Quick question for everyone, does 6D has the built in wireless external flash control like 60D? If yes, then how do I enable that.

Nope, the 60d uses the popup flash for optical control.

The 6d doesnt have a popup flash and no canon camera as a built in wireless(radio) transmitter.

Something like a cybercommander/pocketw​izard is much better anyways. You don't need line of sight.

I thought the 7D had the radio transmitter for flash control?

7D , 6d, eos m etc all use the popup flash for optical wireless.

I have the CowboyStudio NPT-04 remote flash setup. Costs under $25 and works like a charm. No line of sight needed. :cool:

Need a bit of help here. I am unable to compensate the exposure on the 6D. I follow the manual directive, turning the big back weel, but it only change the aperture. What am I missing?

It's been weeks that it bother me but I always forgot about it when I finish shooting.

Hi Earwax,

Exposure compensation works with the semi automatic modes Av, Tv and P. The camera is setting some of the parameters according to its metering and exposure compensation allows you to apply an offset to the metered light level by turning the rear dial.

If you're in manual mode M then you're setting all the parameters. The rear dial does aperture and the top dial does shutter speed (although you can change the assignment...)

So the answer is, it depends which mode you're in.

Hope that helps...


Mark

Certainly certainly. Thanks. However Manual mode is not exactly full manual because there's the auto ISO. Does that mean I cannot, without locking the ISO, compensate the exposition? There's absolutly no way to add +1 or +2 in manual mode with auto ISO? The t3i can do it at a push of a button...

I need that for backlit subject or create flare on a photo...
