Since this is my first post, I'd like to say that I'm glad I found such an informative forum. The experience and insight shared among you all is quite a valuable resource. I look forward to contributing more when my schedule allows me some free time. (ha, free time...a girl can dream can't she? )
Today however, my first post is a question.
I have a 20D and a 580EX. I mostly shoot low light without flash or in studio with a Novatron Kit, but this past weekend I finally had the opportunity to use the 580 for an entire night. The problem I came across is that the focus assist beam does not emit in any manual modes. It will only emit an assist beam in full auto mode...which doesn't suit my needs for this type of photography. I've gone through my CF's on both the camera and the flash and can't find any obvious changes that would make the focus assist not function in manual modes.
Has anyone experienced a similar problem or is there a custom function I might be over looking?
Thanks in advance for any input,
