I recently got a YN568ex speedlight and every time I focus, the infrared focus assist beam lights up. This is great for low light situations but I want to be able to turn it off when there's enough light for focusing. BTW I'm using a Canon 7D.

P.S: I already read the manual.

Found it!!!! The AF-assist beam firing setting is located in the External flash C.Fn setting under the flash control menu.
