Hello parr_alp,\015\012
\015\012Please keep in mind that when shooting in low light, you will ALWAYS get some amount of blur when you are hand holding the camera unless you use a flash. The only way to increase your shutter speed is to crank up your ISO setting to 800, 1200, 1600, etc. If there is no tripod handy, brace yourself against a stationary object and remember to keep your elbows tucked down near your body when shooting (no sense in holding up your arms, too).\015\012
\015\012There is no way to increase the ISO limits of your camera while maintaining quality of your images. And once again, you will ALWAYS get a certain amount of blur when hand holding the camera. \015\012
\015\012The external flash not firing is an entirely separate issue. This could have to do with your metering, a bad flash, bad connection in the hot shoe, what shooting mode you're in — the possibilities are numerous. The next time your flash doesn't work, write down all the settings of your camera and keep track of them (i.e. shooting mode, metering mode, flash settings, current lighting situations, etc.) You may start to notice a pattern and perhaps we can help you here.\015\012
\015\012Anyway, happy shooting, and if this response was helpful, please rate it! Thank you!\015\012

On the right side of the light meter, there is a blinking green light when I try to take the picture. What am I doing wrong?

Fairly brand new (less than 6 months old) Canon rebel xti - shooting in manual mode, then it gives a low battery message. I switch the battery and nothing.

It worked once for a recent football game but again last night shooting soccer could not get the bulb setting to turn off.

When shooting indoors with my 300d (base rebel digital),I have been encountering some light metering problems.I use the 430ex as an external flash. While shooting a subject in front of an external light source-(window, etc.), no matter how small of the frame area include the outside light source, the cameras light meter will invaribly expose the entire image based on the outside ambient light, causing the image to be grossly underexposed. Do you have an explanation/solution for this aggrivating
