I bought this flash from a fellow cser but the manual was not included. Unfortunately i lost his contact. I'm attempting to use the slave mode. According to his demostration, i need to press the mode button down for abt 2 sec, then the light will blink and that's indication of the slave mode ready. I'm at that stage now but the flash didnt triggered when i took a photo.

Anyone can teach me how to use the slave mode? im using 450D.

Thx...

Hi Gerald,
I also got this flash recently. Let me see if I can help.
You are right about pressing the mode button till the light blinks.
This flash is can only be triggered optically. I am not sure if the 450d has a optical transmitter.
If you fire your camera flash, it should trigger the nissin.

you gotta take a photo with your pop-up flash in order to trigger the Di622. But it's only an optical trigger. No TTL, etc...

Also, the 'sensor' of the flash has to be oriented towards the main flash (in this case your popup flash) so that it can pick up the initial flash and fire.
