About Auto Power Off
To save battery power, the power will turn off automatically
after 5 min. of idle use. To turn on the transmitter again, press
the camera’ s shutter button halfway, or press the test flash
button (charge lamp).
About the Lock Function
By setting the power switch to <LOCK>, you can disable flash’ s
button and dial operations. Use this to prevent the transmitter
function settings from being accidentally changed after you set
them.
If you operate a button or dial, <LOCKED> is displayed on the
LCD panel .
About the LCD Panel Illumination
When a button or dial is operated, the LCD panel illuminates in
greenfor 12 sec. When setting a function, the illumination
continues until the setting is complete.

Wireless Flash Shooting
Using a transmitter and a Speedlite compatible with radio
transmission wireless shooting makes it easy to shoot with
advanced wireless multiple flash lighting, in the same way as
normal E-TTL II/E-TTL autoflash shooting.
The system is designed so that the settings of the transmitter
attached to the camera (master) are automatically reflected on
the Speedlite that is wirelessly controlled (slave). Therefore, you
do not need to operate the slave unit while shooting.
The basic relative positions and operating range are as shown in
the figure. You can then perform wireless E-TTL II/E-TTL
autoflash shooting just by setting the master unit to <ETTL>.

About Master Units
You can use two or more master units (master units + slave
units =maximum of 16 units). By preparing multiple cameras
with master units attached, you can shoot by changing cameras
while keeping the same lighting (slave units).
Note that when using two or more master units, the color of the
<LINK> lamp varies depending on the order in which the power
was turned on. The first master (main master) is green and the
second and subsequent masters (sub-masters) are orange.

ETTL: Wireless Multiple Flash Shooting with Flash Ratio
Slave Group Control
If you need more flash output or wish
to perform more sophisticated lighting,
you can increase the number of slave
units.
Simply set an additional slave unit to
the firing group (A, B or C) whose flash
output you want to increase. You can
increase the number of slave units up
to 15 units in total.
For example, if you set a firing group with three slave units to
<A>,the three units are controlled as a single firing group A with
a large flash output.
Ÿ
To fire the three firing groups A, B and C at the same time, set
<A:B:C>. With the < A:B > setting, firing group C does not fire.
Ÿ
If you shoot with firing group C pointing directly toward the
main subject, overexposure may result.
Ÿ
The flash ratio of 8:1 to 1:1 to 1:8 is equivalent to 3:1 to 1:1 to
1:3 (1/2-stop increments) when converted to number of stops.

Remote Release from a Slave Unit/Linked Shooting
Remote Release from a Slave Unit*
You can perform remote release (remote
control shooting) from a flash set as a
slave unit. (see the flash’s instruction
manual).
Linked shooting*
Linked shooting is a function that automatically releases the
shutter of a slave unit camera by linking it to a master unit
camera. You can shoot with linked shooting for up to 16
units, including both master units and slave units. This is
convenient when you want to shoot a subject from multiple
angles at the same time.
To shoot with linked shooting, attach a flash that supports
radio transmission wireless shooting or the Speedlite
Transmitter YN-E3-RT to the camera.

Troubleshooting Guide
The picture is underexposed or overexposed.
Ÿ
If there was a highly reflective object (glass window, etc.) in
the picture, use FE lock).
Ÿ
If the subject looks very dark or very bright, set flash
exposure compensation.
Ÿ
When high-speed sync is set, the effective flash range is
shorter.
Position the slave unit closer to the subject.
Ÿ
When using autoflash shooting with three firing groups A, B
and C, do not fire with firing group C pointed toward the main
subject.
Ÿ
When shooting with a different flash mode setting for each
firing group, do not fire with multiple firing groups set to
<ETTL> or < Ext . A > pointed toward the main subject .
The picture is very blurred.
Ÿ
When the shooting mode is set to <AV> and the scene is
dark, slow sync is enabled automatically (the shutter speed
becomes slower). Use a tripod, or set the shooting mode to <P>
or fully automatic mode. Note that you can also set the sync
speed in [Flash sync. speed in Av mode]
Cannot release from a slave unit.
Ÿ
When an EOS camera which was released up to 2011, has
remote control terminal and is compatible with E-TTL II/E-TTL
autoflash is used to perform remote release from a slave unit or
when it has been set as the slave unit during linked shooting, the
shutter release cable “ LS-MINIB/C3 “ or “ LS-MINIB/C1 ”
(sold separately) is necessary.
