I'm using off camera flash 580ex II with V2 trigger.
My camera is the 30D.
What is the best method of focusing?
The 30D doesn't have an AF assist beam???
I think it uses the built in flash for the assist beam and the light in front of the camera is for red-eye reduction, am I right???
Can the 580ex II on a cactus trigger emit an AF assist light?
I had a shoot a couple of weeks ago in a dark parking garage and I was really really having a hard time auto focusing. I had to do manual focus. But with a f2.8, I had to be dead on, I kind of missed the focus because of it.
I did try to hold a small flash light on one hand and the camera on the other, not easy to do.
just a rant, my friends cheaper Nikon d40 have an assist beam while using off camera flash with v2 trigger.
