The Canon Speedlite380EX is a Canon EOS-dedicatedautofocuszoom flash unit featuring
auto flash controlsystem. lt also
E-TTL (Evaluative-Through-The-Lens)
the newly-developed
has two hew features:FP (Focal-Plane)flash and FE (FlashExposure)lock. FP flash enables
the Speedliteto synchronizewith all shutterspeeds (high-speedsync) while FE lock locks the
flash exposurerehdingfor a specificarea. These new featuresare availablewhen Speedlite
380EXis coupledto a Type-Acamera(see below).

Features
1 E-TTLauto flash control
When Speedlite 380EX is used with a Type-A camera, E-TTL auto flash control
takes
over. Unlike the A-TTL and TTL auto flash systems which use a multiple-zoneflash
meteringsensor,to read the flash exposure,the E-TTL auto flash system uses
normal
evaluativemetering with the camera's metering sensor and controls the flash exposure
automatically.
The E-TTL auto flash system therebycontrolsthe flash exposurewith higher precision
and
boosts the pedormanceof the AIM (AdvancedIntegratedMulti-point)sfstem (which
links
the meteringand flashexposureto the focusingpoinl;.
The E-TTL auto flash system controls the exposure of the main subject as well
as the
backgroundfor a balancedexposure.lt combinesautomaticexposurecontrol for ambient
lightand flashexposurecontrolfor both fill flashand low-lightconditions.
2
FP flash(high-speed
sync)
When Speedlite380EX is used with a Type-A camera, it can synchronizewith all
shutter
speeds.
FP flash is effectivewhen you want to use fill flash for an outdoor portraitwhile creating
backgroundblur with a large aperture.Or, when you want to producea catchlightin the
subject'seyes in daylight.

FE lock
When Speedlite380EX is used with a Type-A camera, you can lock the correct

When replacingbatteries, replace all four batteriesat one time.
. Although ordinary, non-alkalinebatteries (RG or UM3) may be used, the
numberof flasheswill be less.
. The contacts of NiCd batteries are not standardized. lf you want to use NiCd
batteries, make sure the battery contacts touch the battery compartment's
contacts securely.
. When you will not use the Speedlite for an extended period, remove the
batteries.
. In low temperatures,take two sets of fully-chargedNiCd batteries and keep
one set warm in a pocket, etc., and use the batteriesalternately.
. Speedlite380EX cannot be used with an externalpower source.

4. FP FlashSwitch
Use this switch to set highspeed sync.
O : For normalsync.
lx: For high-speedsync.
When Speedlite380EX is used with a Type-A camera and the switch is set for high-speed
sync, using a shutter speed faster than the camera's maximum sync speed sets the highspeed sync mode and using a shutterspeed slower than the maximumsync speed sets the
normalsync mode.
When a Type-B camera is used, normalsync mode is set regardlessof this switch'ssetting.

t!,
with a Type-A camera, you can use Speedlite
380EX's E-TTL auto flash
system. The E-TTL auto flash system uses the camera's focusing pointlinked,evaluativemeteringsensor to meter the flash exposure.Flash
exposure control is more precise, resulting in a balanced exposure for
both th e su bjec t and back g ro u n di n fi l l -fl a s ho r l o w -l i ghtcondi ti ons.
Automatic exposure control and flash exposure control are therefore
combined.FP flash and FE lock can also be easilyset.
