MANUAL DE INSTRUCCIONES
Thank you for purchasing a Canon product.
The Canon Speedlite 580EX is an EOS-dedicated, high-output flash unit
automatically compatible with E-TTL II, E-TTL, and TTL autoflash. It can be
used in three different ways: As a normal on-camera flash, the master unit
for a wireless, multi-Speedlite flash system, or a slave unit.
Read this instruction manual while also referring to your camera's
instruction manual.
Before using the Speedlite, read this instruction manual and your camera's
instruction manual to familairize yourself with the Speedlite operations.
The basic operation is the same as with normal AE shooting.
When the 580EX is attached to an EOS camera, almost all automatic
exposure control for flash photography is handled by the camera.
It is almost the same as using the camera's built-in flash if it has one.
You can think of the 580EX as a built-in, high-output flash.
It is automatically compatible with the camera's flash metering mode
(E-TTL II, E-TTL, and TTL).
The camera controls the Speedlite automatically in the following flash metering
modes:
1. E-TTL II autoflash (evaluative flash metering with preflash reading/lens
distance information)
2. E-TTL autoflash (evaluative flash metering with preflash reading)
3. TTL autoflash (off-the-film metering for real-time flash metering)
Regarding the camera's available flash metering modes, refer to the
camera's instruction manual. The Speedlite's major specifications are
listed in "External Flash Items."
The camera instruction manual's chapter on flash photography will refer to
cameras having 1 and 2 as a Type-A camera (compatible with E-TIL or
E-TTL II). And cameras having 3 (compatible with only TTL) are called
Type-B cameras.
* This instruction manual assume that you are using the 580EX with a
Type-A camera.
For Type-B cameras, see page 53.

If the flash exposure confirmation lamp does not light, move closer to the subject and
take the picture again. You can also increase the camera's ISO speed.
11
Using E-TTL II and E·TTL Autoflash in the Shooting Modes
Ii
Just set the camera's shooting mode to <Av> (aperture-priority AE), <Tv>
(shutter-priority AE), or <M> (manual) and you can use E-TTL II/E-TTL
autoflash.
Tv
..
Av
Select this mode when you want to set the aperture manually.
The camera will then automatically set the shutter speed matching the aperture to obtain
a standard exposure.
If the background is dark like a night scene, a slow sync speed will be used to obtain a
standard exposure of both the main subject and background. Standard exposure of the
main subject is obtained with the flash, while a standard exposure of the background is
obtained with a slow shutter speed.
e Since a slow shutter speed will be used for low-light scenes, using a tripod is
recommended.
$ If the shutter speed display blinks, it means that the background exposure will be
underexposed or overexposed. Adjust the aperture until the shutter speed display
stops blinking.
M
Select this mode when you want to set both the shutter speed and aperture manually.
Standard exposure of the main subject is obtained with the flash. The exposure of the
background is obtained with the shutter speed and aperture combination you set.
I
$
Select this mode when you want to set the shutter speed manually.
The camera will then automatically set the aperture matching the shutter speed to obtain
a standard exposure.
@ If the aperture display blinks, it means that the background exposure will be
underexposed or overexposed. Adjust the shutter speed until the aperture display
stops blinking.
If you use the <DEP> or <A-DEP > shooting mode, the result will be the same as using the
<P> (Program AE) mode.

Bounce Flash
By pointing the flash head toward a wall or ceiling, the flash will bounce off
the surface before illuminating the subject. This can soften shadows behind
the subject for a more natural-looking shot. This is called bounce flash.
Set the Bounce Direction
Hold down the <PUSH> button and turn the flash head.
If the flash coverage is set automatically, the flash coverage will be set to
50mm.
The LCD panel will also display <- -> mm.
15)1 You can also set the flash coverage manually_
If the wall or ceiling is too far away, the bounced flash might be too weak and result in
underexposure.
*' The wall or ceiling should be a plain, white color for high reflectance. If the bounce
surface is not white, a color cast may result in the picture.

Automatic Setting of Flash Coverage for the Camera's Image Size
EOS digital cameras have one of three image sizes. The lens' effective focal
length will differ depending on the camera's image size. The Speedlite
automatically recognizes the EOS digital camera's image size and
automatically sets the flash coverage for lens focal lengths from 24mm to
105mm.

Calculating the Shutter Speed
During stroboscopic flash, the shutter should remain open until the firing
stops. Use the formula below to calculate the shutter speed and set it with
the camera.
Number of flashes ~ Firing frequency (Hz) = Shutter speed
For example, if the number of flashes is 10 and the firing frequency is 5 Hz,
the shutter speed should be at least 2 sec.
24
To avoid overheating and deteriorating the flash head, do not fire more than 10
stroboscopic bursts. Then allow the Speedlite to rest for at least 10 min.
[i] (, Stroboscopic flash is most effective with a highly reflective subject against a dark
®
*
is
*
background.
Using a tripod, a remote switch, and external power source is recommended.
A flash output of 1/1 or 1/2 cannot be set for stroboscopic flash.
.
Stroboscopic flash can be used with "bulb."
If the number of flashes is displayed as - -, the firing will continue until the shutter is
closed or the battery runs out. The number of flashes will be limited as shown by the
table below.

About Wireless Flash
With multiple Canon Speedlites having the wireless flash feature, you can
create various lighting effects with the same ease as using normal E-TTL II
autoflash.
The settings you input with the 580EX (master unit) attached to the camera are
also transmitted to the slave units which are controlled by the master unit via
wireless. Thus, you need not operate the slave units at all during the shoot.
The basic wireless set-up is illustrated below. Then all you do is set the master
unit to <ETTL> and wireless E-TTL II autoflash will be enabled (p.34). Note
that with Type-A cameras prior to the EOS-1D Mark II and EOS ELAN 7NEI
ELAN 7N/30V/33V, E-TTL autoflash will be used instead.

c, Even with multiple Speedlies positioned as slave units, all will be controlled by wireless.
;$ A 580EX set as a slave unit can also be controlled by wireless by Speedlite Transmitter
ST-E2 (optional).
Hereinafter, the "master unit" will refer to a 580EX set as the master unit. and a

The Speedlite's zoom setting will be set automatically to 24mm. It is possible to change
the master unit's zoom setting. However, note that the master unit transmits wireless
signals to the slave unit(s) with the preflash. Therefore, the flash coverage must cover the
slave unit's position. If you change the master unit's zoom setting, be sure to test the
wireless operation before shooting.
If the slave unit enters auto power off, it can be turned on again by pressing the master
unit's test firing button.
A test flash cannot be fired while the camera's operation timer 04 or 06 is active.

About Color Temperature Information Transmission
When the flash fires, the color temperature information is transmitted to
certain specific EOS digital camera. This feature optimizes the flash picture's
white balance. When the camera's color balance is set to <mw3> or <~>, it
will work automatically.
To see if this feature works with your camera, see the white balance
specification in the "Major Specifications" of your camera's instruction
manual.

Change the bounce position. (p.i9)
The periphery or bottom of the picture looks dark.
When you set the flash coverage manually, the setting was a higher
number than the lens focal length, resulting in a dark periphery.
Set the flash coverage that is a lower number than the lens focal length or
set it to auto zoom. (p.20)
If only the bottom of the picture looks dark, you were too close to the
subject.
If the subject is closer than 2 m/6.6 ft, tilt the flash head downward by 7°.
(p.i9)
The flash exposure is underexposed or overexposed.
There was a highly reflective object (glass window, etc.) in the picture.
Use FE lock. (p.i6)
The subject has a very dark or light color.
Set flash exposure compensation. For a dark subject, set a decreased flash
exposure. And for a bright subject, set an increased flash exposure. (p.14)
You used high-speed sync.
With high-speed sync, the effective flash range will be shorter. Make sure
the subject is within the effective flash range displayed. (p.i7)
The picture is really blurred.
