Using a Metz 54 MZ-4 flash with a Canon T1i
I can't get the main flash to fire from the hot-shoe of the Canon T1i [EOS 500D]. I'm really new to an external flash. I thought shoe it up and go. The ready light on the back lights up but the instructions are so vague it doesn't really tell you how to test fire it. The gun is in ettl mode. Messing with it you can hear it zooming. Does it matter what lens you have on the camera? Had a f/1.4 50 mm when trying to get it to work. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
