Guys

Can someone please explain when I would use the 5D MKII internal wireless flash settings? I have it disabled yet my 580EX II can trigger an external Yongnuo speedlight.

Just a bit stuck on its use...

Thanks

I'd assume the yongnuo is a "dumb" flash, meaning it flashes when it sees a flash. (slave flash)?

Yes that is correct slave flash. Anyone able to answer about the 5D wireless question?

Well, that flash will go off whenever it sees a flash of light. However, if you use the built-in 5D wireless flash with a compatible flash, you can also make it send the correct exposure value, so the flash will fire at the appropriate power.

Ah so the built in wireless section will allow you to set power ratios to compatible flash guns. Cheers.

the internal wireless flash system is for controlling 430ex flashes.
