Hi folks.
Got myself a 600EX RT and a YN-E3-RT which sits on my 7D.
I'm hoping one of you can tell me Iím doing something silly.
When I take a photo using Av at F5.6 (or any other) on ETTL my flash goes off but my camera continues as if there was no flash onboard.
Itís as if the camera doesnít see the flash.
My flash settings are:
E-TTLl ll
1st curtain
Exp Comp 0

Is there a setting Iím missing?

That is correct.... Your camera is metering for the ambient and setting the correct exposure, your flash will be balancing with that exposure.

Ideally you should probably learn manual exposure when using flash.

Thanks Phil. It works fine if I use manual.
