Getting The Most Out Of Canon Speedlites, the third in my series of presentations in the Event Space at B&H Photo’s NYC superstore, is now on YouTube. In this video, I talk about how and when to use a single Speedlite on- and off-camera. For tips on shooting wireless, check out my December talk at B&H, Multi-Flash Speedliting (here on YouTube) .

In the presentation, I talk about:

  • How To Set The Power in ETTL and Manual

  • My Favorite Modifiers For Speedlites

    Thank you so much for this, Syl! I’ve watched it twice already and i’m sure i’ll be referring back to it often.

    Thanks for putting this effort into your blog. I am starting out with LumoPro LP160, and might add the 580EX II later.

    Great video Syl, watching it during my commute (train). Just bought Speedlite 430ex ii and finding your advice exceptionally helpful.

    Just one question, you show some slides during the video for example the chart showing speed, aperature, iso etc. Is this available anywhere?

    Thanks again for a great video
