    I just bought ST-E2 and 550EX. Thinking to take photo of my 2ftx1ftx1ft tank but do not know how to set ST-E2 and 550EX. Need advice on how to setup both ST-E2 and 550EX. By the way I only have one flash and I make DIY flash box.

    Do I need to set it in the first place? or just leave every thing to auto? REad the manual but can't really gasp the intruction. Should I use the build in wide panel flip down cover? Should I use the high-speed sync function? What is that ratio on ST-E2 for?

    So many possible combination setting headache. Any recomendation setting to help me start? Thanks

    turn on ST-E2, set 550EX to slave mode. make sure "channels" is the same on both the ST-E2 and the 550EX. that's it!

    the other things like high-speed sync etc are not critical to it working. ratio only applies if you have more than one speedlite.

    you can press the test button on the ST-E2 (while standalone) and see if the speedlite is triggered.
