Hey guys, need some advice. I was shooting an outdoor fashion shoot yesterday and to my horror my remote flash triggers started dropping off with low battery levels.
I had to resort to the wireless trigger in the Canon 7D.
I set the 430Ex ii to wireless mode, manual full, set the 7D to fire only the remote 430 and carried on shooting. All went well, then slowly I noticed the 7D was hanging on 'Busy'... why? the on camera flash was not being used at power, only to trigger the 430.... the batteries weren't low on the 7D as I had two full batteries in the grip.
Anyone experienced some strange goings on when trying to use the wireless 7D flash function and fire only a slave?
At one point there was around a 5 second 'busy' recharging period from the camera.... not good! not good at all!
