    Hi everyone :)

    I just recently picked up a Speedlite 430 EX II and I must say it's pretty sweet. I've been taking photos for awhile now, but the type of photography I do (Live music) usually doesn't allow flashes so I've never really needed one.

    I picked one up due to a big event I have coming up that'll require me to take photos at a nightclub. I took the Speedlite out for a spin this weekend on Friday and Saturday and did well with it. I did some research on club photography and followed the steps that I found which kept everything on manual.

    Unfortunately, there wasn't enough light in the club to help the autofocus on my camera focus on a lot of photos. I'm going through the manual and found the section for the AF assist beam and if I'm understanding this correctly, I can only use the AF beam when I'm on full auto and NOT manual?

    Can anyone help? :)

    Nevermind, I finally figured it out. It has to be on "one shot" for it to work. For the types of photography I do, it's always on servo.
