Oct 17, I know that a 60D can wirelessly trigger a compatible slave flash as well as firing the inbuilt flash, what is not clear by reading the manual is will it still trigger a slave with a non-wireless EX flash mounted on the hotshoe? No, because the onboard flash is used to communicate with the slave. Mark B. Not possible, as the built-in flash cannot be activated with a flash or anything for that matter mounted in the shoe. I believe the EX can, however, be triggered by the EX mounted in the hotshoe. The EX can be master flash; the can only be a slave in wireless.

The built-in flash on many Canon DSLRs is generally considered inadequate for most serious purposes and the Canon pro bodies do not include a flash. The Canon accessory flashes such as the EX are much more versatile and powerful. The EX gets the light far above the lens prevents half-moon shadows in your pictures and does a much better job preventing the red-eye effect. The Canon Speedlite EX Flash allows bouncing the flash off of a standard height ceiling or off of other reflectors such as white walls, white foamcore, Photoflex and other commercial reflectors, These techniques can make a huge difference in your image quality.

The pattern of the focus assist light projected by the flash helps the camera focus faster and more accurately - even on a low contrast surface such as a white wall. The focus assist feature can make or break a shot in low light situations. The EX is a very good value for general purpose use. It is relatively small.

Although not as powerful as the larger and more costly flashes, the EX is quite powerful. Many people choose to start with the EX as their first flash. The Canon EX then gets used for general purpose portability and as a Slave Flash for the situations that call for more than 1 flash.
