    5D3 Hotshoe

    Had an interesting problem recently with my 5d Mk III. Firstly couldn't get a Yongnuo YN-622C remote off the hotshoe. The screws holding the hotshoe onto the body loosened up meaning I couldn't get the locking pin up high enough to disengage the bloody thing. In the meantime I couldn't use the flash on it without getting a full power unmetered flash. PITA. Finally all of the screws loosened enough for the whole bloody thing to come off including the four screws. Re-attached it and tightened down the screws (minus the remote of course), and hey presto....all fixed! ETTL is back again.

    Wow - what a drama. Glad you managed to fix it.

    Maybe I should incorporate a regular visual inspection and screw testing program into my schedule.

    Cheers

    The first symptom was the unmetered full power flash overexposing images. That caused me some grief, and I couldn't figure out why my flash wouldn't select or stay on ETTL. Instead it would self select either TTL or Manual. It is more common than I had thought.
