My friend has a Rebel XT and the Pop up flash just stopped working. It pop's up, but it won't fire. Do the bulbs ever actually blow in a flash? I'm also wondering if he could just get a flash for the hot shoe and not even worry about this at all. THanks!

I would get a flash gun if you are serious about this hobby. Bummer about the pop up. Once you get a flash gun, you wont believe you ever settled for the pop up.

LOL nice.


Mine sometimes does not work on my 30D too. And used to F%^^ up on my XT as well. You have to pull it up as your hitting the release button. Try wiggling it around as you are pulling it up.

Okay, Thanks Guys. I actually had a flash gun once before, this is my friends camera I was referring too. I pretty much told him to get a real flash, the pop up does suck anyways. Thanks for the replies!

As nice as an external flash is, a pop up flash is still nice when you need fill flash in bright sunlight and are trying not to haul all of your equipment around.
