Hi, I bought time ago a 5400 HS flash unit and now I can't find the instruction manual.

First, as I have a 7D camera and also a 5600 HS(D), I'm testing the compatibility of the camera with the flash units working together wireless (I mean with the camera as a remote control and the flash units alone): the 5400 HS unit doesn't seem to work, but in the instruction manual of the 5600 HS(D) unit it's written to reference to the 5400's to set the units working together. How the story goes ? The 5400 unit works well in manual mode attached on 7D...

Second, where can I find a free copy of the 5400 HS instruction manual (english, or italian)?

Thank's

Thank you, I've been told that 5400 HS flash unit cannot work wireless with 7D camera, only attached on hot shoe in manual mode. I lately found out a german site who gives instructions (and a software) about modifying the flash unit to make it work (requires elettronic skills!)

Did you get Gary's new book? I've been thinking about picking up some 5400s for additional flashes to go along with the 5600s I've been using.

Oh thought you might have heard about the mod the same place I did. But I'm guessing not. It does look like a good way to get some cheaper remote flash units though.

Would you care to share the link to the site that describes the modifications?

Thanks
