    Help with my speedlight

    I have a Canon 30D and a Nikon flash, it fires BUT it leaves a black strip at the bottom of my pictures. I've changes lenses thinking it was a shadow but it's not. Help!

    what shutter speed are you using?
    I've reached the age where my brain went from "You probably shouldn't say that" to "What the hell, let's see what happens."

    Amateurs worry about equipment, professionals worry about time, masters worry about light.

    Your shutter speed is too fast and isn't syncing.


    You really should be using a Canon speedlight.
