    That's awesome. I just got mine a couple months ago..I'm still trying to figure out studio lighting =/
    ...But I figured out that bouncing the flash, makes the lighting soooo awesome. Congradulations on your purchase!

    If you're on maunual mode, just press the 'mode' button. It will put it back to ETTL

    EDIT: wait, I think you have to clear the custom functions? I don't even know, this thing is so confusing. Oh and make sure the zoom isn't set to manual anymore. I don't know about the button that sets everything back to normal, I think I remember reading about it..I just redo everything. I'm still learning how to use it
