Well I was using a mates 580 EX II last night and I noticed something wierd. after the shot was taken my camera froze. It wouldn't even turn off.

This has never happened to me before. I have used a 420 EX lately and it has been fine. But now all of a sudden its starts freezing. its happened about 3 times now..

I'm just wondering if there are any known problems as to why this would happen..

Thanks.

boucher.

Yeah, the battery being low probably is the problem causing your camera to freeze. Did you experience this problem when the battery wasn't so low?

You haven't told the whole story.
What happens after the camera locks up? How do you resolve the problem? Are you getting any error messages?

Hey again. Sorry about that.

The camera locks up. LCD is off. No error message. and to resolve the problem I pull out the batteries.

I think it could be the fact that my batteries were low. It's just it started happening as soon as they hit 1 bar remaining.

Thanks for the help.

:)

well the only reason I was worried is because it started happening literally as soon as my camera went from 2 bars to one.

sorry if I wasted your time.

I really don't think you wasted anybodies time - thats what we are here for.

You had a genuine question. I personally wouldn't have thought that a low battery would have caused the whole thing to lock up either.
