I have a Canon 60D and a Yongnuo YN560-III flash, everything works fine normally, but when i go in live view mode the flash doesn't fire Why is that?


Go into the Live View Settings menu (red tab no.4) and turn Silent Shooting off. Then the flash will fire. For some reason silent shooting is not compatible with 3rd party speedlites.

  • The reason is because the camera doesn't detect non E-TTL flashes mounted on the hot shoe. – Michael C Feb 11 '14 at 21:38
