    Canon 450D and Canon 270EX

    Just needed a quick "heads-up" as to whether the 270EX flash can be made to fire on rear curtain when fitted to the 450D?
    I don't have either of them with me but by the time I do I just need to know if it can be done?

    I've been wrong before!! Happy to have constructive criticism though.Gear used Canon 50D, 7D & 5DMkII plus expensive things hanging off their fronts and of course a "nifty fifty".

    Maybe a little late to the party but i dont see why not. Even the camera body flash can be set to rear curtain.

    Thanks for that, it is exactly what I thought too, I did have the units together tonight but there is something wrong with the flash and probably bad batteries stopped the 270 from switching on.
    I was just wondering if these 270's being a basic unit, are NOT capable of rear synch but some new batts. and try, try again....cheers

    It should be in the 'custom functions' section of your menu

    Won't be in the custom functions, it will be in the External Flash function menu

    Yes I knew where to go to external flash functions but when I posted the thread I had never seen a 270EX and since they're not very expensive I thought they might not be capable of rear synch., thanks for all the help people
