What part of the instructions do I need to read. The manual states that I should read for either the A type Camera or B Type and lists them. I'm using the Canon D10, so am I A or B. Also, any suggestions on use of 550 Ex from those of you that use it. I have been playing with it for three days and I like the resulting images with little or no shadow. Do any of you use it for glamour?

Thanks,
Luis

Not using 550 here but High Key using a few sheets.....

all current canon bodies are type A. The type Bs are like the ElanIIe AE1...the older bodies....

pretty much anything newer than 1999-2000 is a type A

First Luis;

that is an awesome photo! It doesn't matter what kind of lighting gear you use when you can make images like that one!

I use a 550EX all the time ior glamour; indoors and outdoors and almost always with a Stofen (www.stofen.com) diffuser to soften the light. Here the 550EX with Stofen diffuser was used for fill.

Thanks for the replies.... As I feared [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img], I will have to read both sides of the book since I own the Elan II and a rebel...so much for short cuts. Thanks for your insight.
