Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

These flash units cannot be used as controllers to wirelessly trigger remote flashes when connected with the off-camera cable (FA-CC1AM) and shoe (FA-CS1AM). When using the off-camera cable and shoe, the wireless flash control is automatically canceled and P-TTL flash metering is selected. The flash units must be mounted directly to the flash shoe on the camera to be used as control triggers for remote flashes.
