Have an IR transmitter attached to hot shoe, which fires two stand alone studio flash heads. The problem I have is that the on board flash pops up and hits the transmitter. cannot find a way of stopping the on board flash activating when using the ir unit on the hot shoe,...help!:?

Which metering program are you on? (the program dial on the top left of your camera)

Try setting it to M (manual) and doing everything manual. Since strobes don't work with flash metering from your camera the best way to go would be Manual.
In the program modes, the flash pops up automaticly if it's to dark, in manual it doesn't.

Cheers Chris, should have thought of that myself...d'oh!

sometimes the most obvious solution is the one that escapes consideration
