General Information
J
Although the 580EX II inherits the 580EX's basic functions, its reliability and features have
been improved to meet the high-end needs of professional photographers.
1) Improved Reliability and Features for Professionals
■EOS-1D Mark III's dust- and water-resistance
While retaining the 580EX's easy operation, the 580EX II attains the same high level of
dust- and water-resistance as the EOS-1D Mark III. Details are explained below.
1. Exterior seams and joints, window edges, moving parts, and the control panel are sealed
against dust and water.
2. Dust- and water-resistant battery compartment cover and external power pack terminal
cover.
The battery compartment cover and external power pack terminal cover are lined with
rubber O-rings for dust- and water-resistance.
3. Dust- and water-resistant adapter for mounting foot.
A dust- and water-resistant adapter for the mounting foot is provided. When attached to
the new hot shoe of the EOS-1D Mark III and newer cameras, a high level of dust- and
water-resistance is attained. Although this adapter can also be ftted on the hot shoe of
older cameras, the dust- and water-resistance will not be so efective.
4. Sliding switch eliminated
Since sliding switches (power switch and wireless selector) make water seepage easier,
they have been eliminated to improve dust- and water-resistance. The power switch is
now shaped for better dust- and water-resistance. The wireless selector now operates
with the ZOOM button and selection dial.
5. Dust- and water-resistant system
The external power pack (CP-E4) and Of-Camera Shoe Cord (OC-E3) to be marketed
together with the 580EX II are also designed for dust- and water-resistance on par with
the EOS-1D Mark III. Thus, the system as a whole is now dust- and water-resistant.

■Improved reliability of direct contacts
1. Metal mounting foot
The mounting foot is now made of metal instead of molded plastic. With higher rigidity
and less chance of breakage due to shock, the reliability is improved.
2. Improved communication reliability
In the past, there have been cases where the Speedlite's metallic contacts rubbed against
the hot shoe's molded plastic as the Speedlite was attached to the camera. This generated
dust which stuck onto the contacts and caused faulty connection and communications.
The 580EX II's shape of the contacts has been changed to make the contact's surface
smaller. The contact's torque has also been reduced. These countermeasures reduce
the frictional dust generated with the EOS-1D Mark III's new hot shoe, and improve the
connection and communications reliability.
■Shorter recycling time
Thanks to an oscillator circuit whose frequency is controlled by a microcomputer, the fash
recycling time is approx. 20% shorter than with the 580EX (approx. 4.6 sec. to approx. 3.7
sec.).
* With four new LR6 batteries. Right after the pilot lamp lit, the Speedlite was fred 10 times, and the time
required for the pilot lamp to light again for the 11th fash was measured.
■Safety measures against external power packs
If the external power pack terminal is connected to a power pack having 340 V or higher,
the pilot lamp blinks as a warning and the circuitry is cut of. This prevents the Speedlite
from damaging in case of 340 V or higher voltage is generated due to malfunction or
alteration. Reliability is thus enhanced.
■Silent recycling
Thanks to the oscillator circuit whose frequency is controlled by a microcomputer, the
oscillation frequency is increased (70 KHz) beyond the hearing ability of humans. This
makes the recycling sound inaudible.
* The hearing ability of humans ranges from 20 Hz to 20 KHz.
■External metering sensor
An external metering sensor has been provided in response to pros who really wanted it.
1. 580EX II's external metering system
The 580EX II's external metering system works with the fash refecting of the subject
measured by the external metering sensor. In accordance with the ISO speed and
aperture set for the Speedlite, the fash exposure is obtained in real-time. When the
correct exposure level is attained, the fash is cut of. It is an orthodox system. The
external metering sensor angle is approx. 20º.
2. External metering modes
Two modes are provided: Auto external metering and manual external metering. Auto
external metering works with the EOS-1D Mark III and newer EOS digital cameras. The
ISO speed and aperture information from the camera are sent to the Speedlite which
then controls the fash output accordingly. Flash exposure compensation can also be
set. Manual external metering can be used with all EOS SLR cameras. The ISO speed and
aperture are entered to the Speedlite manually. However, fash exposure compensation
cannot be set.
General Information
5
■PC terminal
A PC terminal has been newly provided. In case the mounting foot is broken, the Speedlite
can still be used with the PC terminal connection (manual fash and manual external
metering).
■Safety measures to prevent overheating
If the fash is repeatedly fred many times, it will be forced to wait for an interval of 8
seconds before it can be repeatedly fred again. If it is repeatedly fred many times again,
the interval will be extended to 20 seconds. The extension of this forced extension of the
fash interval serves to prevent the fash from overheating or deteriorating. This function
will be activated in the following conditions. 1) When only the fash's batteries are used
and the fash is fred 60 times continuously at the full output, 2) when the external battery
pack is used and the fash is fred 40 times continuously at the full output. Since the above
conditions are quite extreme, therefore, in normal use, this function will be rarely activated.
In the 580EX II instruction manual, not to encourage the user to fre more than 20
consecutive fashes (as in the previous models), the conditions is stated as follows; “If you
fre more than 20 continuous fashes and then fre more fashes in short intervals, the
inner overheating prevention function may be activated....” . If this function is activated, it
will return to normal after resting it for about 15 minutes. This function is also cleared if
you set the power switch to OFF/ON, although it is not stated in the 580EX II instruction
manual.
2) New Design and Easier Operation
■New design matching the EOS-1D Mark III
The Speedlite has been designed to optimally match the design of EOS-1 series digital
cameras (EOS-1D Mark III). The shape and layout of the Speedlite controls have been
optimized to convey the high reliability of this top-of-the-line Speedlite. An improved
exterior and better materials for the controls give the Speedlite a luxury feel. The design
also conveys an advanced and refned version of the 580EX.
■Quick attachment and new locking mechanism
The locking mechanism on the mounting foot has been changed from the conventional
rotating collar to a quick-lock and quick-release lever. This makes it much easier to attach
and detach the Speedlite. The new locking mechanism also has a lock-release button which
prevents the lock from accidental release.
■Battery compartment cover easier to open and close
Instead of opening horizontally, the battery compartment cover now opens vertically as
with the 430EX. The cover hinges are now metallic, with fxed hinges instead of the molded
plastic hinges on the cover. This makes it smoother to open/close the cover and improves
reliability. A locking mechanism is also provided to prevent accidental opening of the cover.

■Speedlite control with the EOS-1D Mark III's menu
When the 580EX II is attached to the EOS-1D Mark III, you can set the Speedlite function
settings and Speedlite Custom Functions with the camera's menu. You can also cancel all
the Speedlite Custom Function settings with the camera. However, if the fash exposure
compensation is set with the Speedlite, you cannot set it with the camera. Except for the
fash exposure compensation, if the settings are set with both the camera and the Speedlite,
the last setting will be efective.

3) New Accessories
■CP-E4 (Dust/water-resistant external power pack)
Together with the 580EX II and EOS-1D Mark III, the
dedicated external power pack is also dust/water-
resistant. This makes the entire fash system dust/water-
resistant. Other than the improved dust/water-resistance,
the power pack's performance is the same as the previous
Compact Battery Pack CP-E3.
When CP-E4 is used with 580EX II, fash interval
and fash count are as follows (with size-AA alkaline
batteries).
Flash interval: Approx. 0.1 to 1.2 sec.
Flash count: Approx. 440 to 3000 fashes
Dimensions (W×H×D): 71×171×26 mm/2.8×6.7×1.0 in.
Weight: 220 g/7.8 oz.
■OC-E3 (Dust/water-resistant Of-Camera Shoe Cord)
Together with the 580EX II and EOS-1D Mark III, the
Of-Camera Shoe Cord is also dust/water-resistant. This
makes the entire fash system dust/water-resistant. Also,
the OC-E3 employs the same quick-lock system on the
mounting foot as the 580EX II. This improves reliability
and operation ease.
Dimensions of camera end (W×H×D)*:
38×32×50 mm/1.5×1.3×2.0 in.
Dimensions of Speedlite end (W×H×D):
30×29×35 mm/1.2×1.1×1.4 in.
* Excluding the dust/water-resistant adapter.
Weight: 105 g/3.7 oz.

■SB-E2 (Dust- and water-resistant bracket)
Updated model of SB-E1 which included the original Of-
camera Shoe Cord. The bracket is now equipped with
the new OC-E3 and it is now dust- and water-resistant,
equivalent to EOS-1D Mark III.
Dimensions (W×H×D):
251×109.5×77.2 mm/9.88×4.31×3.04 in.
Weight: Approx. 295 g/10.4 oz

J. ClkCUlT DE5CklPTl0N
J.1 Power 5ource
(1) When the batteries are installed, BATT1 is input to IC16 through L4 and D40.
(2) When the D40 voltage output enters IC16, VCC is output from pin 1 and input to IC107S
(MPU) pin 94.
(3) VCC is also input to IC4 (voltage-detection IC). If the voltage is 3.2V or higher, "H" is
output to IC107S pin 90. With "H", IC107S becomes operational.
Due to C55, VCC steadily increases until it reaches 4.8V.
(4) When IC107S becomes operational and the Power SW is on, "L" is input to pin 116, pin
115 goes "H", and IC15, IC17, and RQ100S turn on.
(5) When IC17 turns on, VCC is supplied to IC108S (op amp), IC106S (comparator IC),
IC102S (metering IC), IC101S (EEPROM), and other pull-up components.
(6) IC107S pin 114 goes "H". 2.5V of which the reference voltage of 3.2V from pin 30 of
IC102S is applied across R326 and R325 passes through R108S, and the voltage goes
into pin 1 of IC106S. From IC15 pin 1, 5.5V is output, passes through RQ25, divided into
R156 and R157, and goes into pin 3 of IC106S. IC106S inputs are compared. If pin 1
of IC15 is at least 5V, IC107S pin 114 goes "H", the output from pin 4 of IC106S passes
through TH2 and IC304 and controls FET6 and FET7 to start recharging.
(7) Since the converter holds pin 1 of IC15 above 5V, pin 1 of IC16 is kept at 4.8V.
(8) The standard voltage of IC102S pin 30 (3.2V) is supplied to pin 38, and 43 of IC107S.
* Power SW does not perform operations (4) - (8) during power OFF and SE.

J.2 kecharging
(Recharging Start)
(1) 2.5V output of which 3.2V reference voltage supplied by IC102S pin 30 is applied over
R326 and R325 passes through R108S to pin 1 of IC106S. The voltage of IC15 pin 1
(normally 5.5V) passes through RQ25 to voltage divider R156 and R157. The result
is supplied to pin 1 of IC106S (usually 2.75V). If IC106S pin 3 is higher than pin 1, an
"L" output from pin 4 turns on RQ101S. When RQ101S turns on, the "H" output from
IC107S of pin 114 as a power supply, FET6 and FET7 turn on alternately via TH2 and
IC304.
(2) FET6 and FET7 turn on by turns and T1 oscillates, then passes through D302, D303
and D304 to reach C14 (main capacitor) and passes through R28 to recharge C21 and
C22 (trigger capacitors). If the main capacitor's voltage reaches 165V, IC107S pin 120
outputs "H" to RQ5, and Q36 turns on to make D305 and D306 conductive, and then
transformer connection is switched from parallel to in series.
(3) C14's recharging voltage is applied across R16/R17, and R18. The voltage goes into
IC107S pin 47 (A/D Detection). Recharging continues until the input voltage reaches
about 2.4V.
(An input voltage of 2.4V is equivalent to a charge of 330V on the main capacitor)
(Input voltage of 0.0125V is equivalent to 1.71V on the main capacitor.)
Technical Information
4
(Recharging Stop)
(4) When the main capacitor's voltage becomes about 350V or higher, it passes through
ZD2 and R203 and turns on Q34. CPU is reset to stop the recharging.
(This is a safety circuit that stops charging in case the MPU malfunctions.)
(5) If any of the following conditions occurs, IC107S pin 114 outputs "L" turning of
FET6 and FET7 to stop the recharging. Then if all of the following conditions are met,
recharging starts again.
* IC107S pin 47 (A-D detection terminal) input voltage is 2.4V or higher (when it is lower
than 2.3875V at the restart of recharging).
(Hysteresis = 0.0125V)
* IC106s pin 3 input voltage is 2.5V or lower.
(An input voltage of 2.5V is equivalent to a voltage of 5V at IC15 pin 3.)
* ZOOM is operating
* PD1, PD2 or PD9 (AF-assist light) is on.
* A fash is being fred.
(Prevents CPU misoperation due to a battery voltage decrease.)

Repeats until Main capicator reaches 330V
(Recharging suspension due to heating)
If the temperature of B PCB (converter PCB) is 124 degrees or higher, divided voltage over
the resistance value of TH2 (Posister) that becomes over 4.7ohm and R13 (4.7K ohm) makes
input from pin 8 and 9 of IC304 become "L", and recharging will stop.
If the temperature of B PCB increases, recharging will restart automatically.
J.J Flash·keady lndicator
(1) When IC107S pin 47 (A-D detection terminal) input voltage becomes 1.56V or higher,
IC107S pin 12 is set to "H" and RQ28 green pilot lamp (PD3) is lit to indicate that quick
fash is ready to fre.
When IC107S pin 47 (A-D detection terminal) input voltage becomes 1.96V or higher,
IC107S pin 12 is set to "H" and PD3 (green) is turned of. IC107S pin 13 is set to "L" and
the red pilot lamp (PD3) is lit.
(2) When IC107S pin 47 (A-D detection terminal) input voltage becomes 1.94V or lower,
C107S pin 13 is set to "H" and PD3 (red) is turned of.
(An input voltage of 1.94V is equivalent to 266.6V on the main capacitor.)

J.4 Camera Communications
1) X-sync Terminal Circuit
(1) When X becomes "L," RQ9 turns on via D106S and R328.
(2) When RQ9 turns on, IC107 pin 100 goes "H." and fash fring begins at the leading edge
of "H."
(3) When the TEST SW (Test fring button) is pressed, RQ 19 turns on and IC107 pin 117
becomes "H."
(4) When PC terminal is short-circuited by something like a slave sensor, RQ9 turns on via
D301, C302 and R306 and fash fring begins.
<Operation Sequence>
(1) (3) (4) → (2)
2) STSPC Terminal Circuit (Communications Sync Terminal for Camera and Speedlite)
(1) The input of STSPC is input to IC102S pin 25, and is compared with IC102S internal
reference voltage (2.6V).
(2) If the input voltage of STSPC is less than 2.6V, "L" is output to IC102S pin 13. If it is 2.6V
or more, "H" is output. Communications from the camera to the fash are synchronized
by IC107S pin 16 by these "L" and "H" states.
Firing is started by 107S pin 99 at the falling edge of "L".
(3) The input of STSPC is input to IC102S pin 25, and is compared with IC102S internal
reference voltage (0.3V).
(4) If the input voltage of STSPC is less than 0.3V, "L" is output to IC102S pin 14. If it is 0.3V
or more, "H" is output. Firing in the TTL mode is controlled by IC107S pin 53 by these
"L" and "H" states.
<Operation Sequence>
(1) → (2), (3) → (4)
3) AVEF Terminal Circuit (Speedlite to Camera Transmission Terminal)
(1) AVEF is clock-synchronized to STSPC on the fash to camera communications line to
output the "L" and "H" states from IC107S pin 15.
(2) When "H" is output from IC107S pin 15, it enters IC102S pin 24, and is then output to
the AVEFI terminal via IC102S pin 23. When "L" is output from IC107S pin 15, it enters
IC102S pin 24, and is then output to the AVEFI terminal via IC102S pin 23.
<Operation Sequence>
(1) → (2)

4) EFIDO Terminal Circuit (Camera to Speedlite Transmission Terminal)
(1) EFIDO is input to IC102S pin 26, and is compared with the IC102S internal reference
voltage (2.6V).
(2) If the input voltage of EFIDO is less than 2.6V, "L" is output to IC102S pin 15, and "L" is
input to IC107S pin 14. If it is 2.6V or more, "H" is output, and IC107S recognizes this
signal as a serial input data and commands from the camera.
(3) EFIDO is input to IC102S pin 26. If the input is "H", "L" is output to IC102S pin 22 and
the AVEFI signal is selected to IC102S pin 23. (AVEFI can be output.)
If input of EFIDO is "L", "H" is output to IC102S pin 22, and "L" is output to IC102S pin
23. (AVEFI cannot be output).
<Operation Sequence>
(1) → (2), (3)
5) CCC Terminal Circuit (AF LED [Focus-Assist] ON/OFF)
(1) When CCC's output is "H", it passes through R87 and turns on Q23. Also, it passes
through R88 to IC107S pin 49 (A-D detection terminal). When CCC's output is "L", Q23
turns of.
(2) When Q23 is on, IC102S pin 22 turns of and AVEFI output is enabled.
When Q23 is of, IC102S pin 22 turns on and AVEFI output is disabled.
(3) When "H" is output from IC107S pin 4, RQ11 turns on. When pin 4 is "L", RQ11 turns
of.
(4) If RQ11 is on, R84's current fows from CCC.
<Operation Sequence>
(1) → (2), (3) → (4)
J.5 AF·Assist Lamp 0N/0FF
(1) When the camera requires the AF-assist light, 2.2V or higher voltage is input from the
CCC terminal. It passes through R88 and enters IC107S pin 49 (A-D detection terminal).
(A pulse signal is sent from the CCC. This is repeated up to 10 times until AF is achieved.)
(2) If the camera's focusing point is set to the center focusing point, IC107S pin 3 is set
to "H" and RQ8 (L), RQ106S, and RQ103S are turned on to turn on the AF-assist lamp
(PDI). If the EOS-3's Area AF is used, IC107S pin 2 is set to "H" and RQ8 (R), RQ 16, Q4
and RQ31 are turned on to turn on the AF-assist lamps (PD2, PD9) corresponding to the
active focusing point.
(If CCC is lower than 2.2V, IC107S pins 2 and 3 are set to "L" and RQ8 (L&R) turns of.)
IC108S and R132S stabilize the current going to PD1. Also, the current going to PD2 and
PD9 is stabilized by operation amp IC108S, R4 and R5.
(3) In wireless slave mode, IC107S pin 95 is set to H, RQ22 turns of, IC108S pin 3 is set to
0.1V, and the current through PD1 is set to 100mA.
<Operation Sequence>

J.6 Zoom Control
(1) The focal length information from the camera is input through the EFIDO terminal.
(2) If the focal length has changed, the focal length is displayed on the LCD panel and output
from either pin 5, 6 or 7 of IC107S and input to either pin 2, 3, or 4 of IC18.
(3) This input causes a change at pins 7-10 which causes the stepping motor to move the
fash head accordingly.
(4) This movement is based on the timing when pin 102 of IC107S detected the signal of
Photo-interrupter P301.
(5) The motor runs until the focal length information from the camera matches the stepping
motor position.
(6) Q35 is a voltage regulator and the output (constant 4V) is supplied to IC18. Q35 output
is constantly approx. 4V. It is input to pin 1 of IC18 and is supplied via an internal bridge
to pins 7-10 and input to the motor.
(7) The signal from IC107S pin 7 to IC18 pin 3 turns on IC18 establishing the reference
voltage.
* Flash coverage is set automatically. If bounce fash is set, fash coverage is set to 50mm
and the zoom display on the LCD will show --mm. During bounce fash, the focal length
information from the camera is ignored (fash coverage is fxed at 50mm).
Flash coverage can also be set manually. If it is set manually, the "M" icon and the set
focal length will be displayed on the LCD.
* When there is no signal of P301 for the initial position detection of the stepping motor,
a zoom error declared --mm is displayed and the stepping motor is stopped.
The stepping motor is referenced by the P301 signal when power is turned on and
zoom operated 20 times.

J.7 EEPk0M
(1) IC107S communicates with the EEPROM only in the following cases: After the power
turns on immediately after IC107S is reset, after the SE mode is canceled, and when data
is to be modifed. The data in EEPROM is written and read.
(2) The clock line of IC107S pin 37 is used for the synchronization of the reading and
writing of EEPROM data.
(3) IC107S pin 35 and pin 36 line is used to read and write EEPROM data.
<Operation Sequence>

J.8 5E Timer
(1) With the wireless mode set to OFF or MASTER, if no operation is executed for about
90 seconds (Maximum 15 minutes, if it is overheated) after the Power SW is turned on,
IC107S pin 115 becomes "L" and IC15, IC17 and RQ100S turn of to cut of the power
source. This also occurs when the no-operation-time is 60 seconds with the wireless
mode set to SLAVE.
(2) When IC107S pin 114 goes of, oscillation stops.
(3) The Speedlite restarts (SE mode canceled) when the test button (TEST SW) is pressed or
when there is a signal (CCC and EFIDO terminal is "H") from the camera. This inputs an
"L" to IC107S pin 117 and pin 14.
(4) IC107S pin 115 thereby goes "H" and the Speedlite restarts.
<Operation Sequence>
(1) → (2) → (3) → (4)
J.9 Flash Firing 0perations
1) Trigger output
Trigger output is executed when the Speedlite is fully recharged and the fash is fred with the
test fring button (TEST SW) or with a fring command from the camera.
(1) With the fring command, "H" is output from IC107S pin 10.
(2) This signal turns on SCRI, and C21 starts to discharge.
(3) The voltage stepped up by T2 is applied to Xe. (Trigger voltage)
(4) Also, with the fring command, "H" is output from IC107S pin 112, Q 18 turns on and
Q17 turns on.
(5) When Q17 turns on, the 30V is generated by Q20, Q 19, and ZD3 passes through Q15
and it is applied to IT1's gate. IT1 thereby turns on.
(6) When IT1 turns on, Xe discharged electric current passes.
<Operation Sequence>
(1) → (2) → (3)
(4) → (5) (6)
2) Flat Firing (Prefash, Main Flat Firing)
The prefash fres at the prefash command from the camera regardless of whether bounce
fash has been set.
(1) By the fring instruction from the camera, serial data communications using IC107S pin
57 (chip select), pin 58 (chip select), pin 37 (clock sync) and pin 36 (command data)
start, and serial data is sent respectively to IC102S pin 7 (chip select), pin 8 (chip select),
pin 10 (clock sync) and pin 9 (command data).
(2) Serial data (fring control value (A/D converter voltage), fring command) is sent to
IC102S from IC107S according to the fring wave height value data from the camera and
the fring mode (regular (no fring), fat fring, fash fring, TTL fring).
Also, "H" is output to IC107S pin 56, and input to IC102S pin 11.
(3) If "L" outputs from IC107pin 41, the voltage corresponding to the fring intensity in the
fat fring mode is generated at pin 31 by the PD10 metering sensor selected in IC20.
(4) That voltage is compared with the fring control value (A/D converter voltage). If the
voltage is lower than the internal reference voltage (1.6V), "H" is output to IC102S pin
17. If it is higher, "L" is output.
Technical Information

(6) If "L" outputs from IC107pin 41, the voltage corresponding to the fring intensity in the
fash fring mode is generated at the IC102S internal integration circuit by the metering
sensor selected by IC20. (ABOUT)
(7) That voltage is compared with the fring control value (A/D converter voltage). If the
voltage is lower, "H" is output to IC102S pin 17. If it is higher, "L" is output. Either of "H"
or "L" is input to IC107S pin 46 (A/D detection terminal), and the fring integrated value

J.10 kemote Control keception Circuit (For 5lave Units)
(1) When the Speedlite 580EX II is set as a slave unit, IC107S pin 95 is set to "L" and
RQ105S is turned on to supply VCC to the remote control reception circuit.
(2) When supplied with VCC, Q25 turns on. When light hits sensor element PD8, it passes
through RQ25 and an optical current corresponding to the light amount received goes to
PD8. (Constant light)
(3) At this time, the light pulse transmitted from the master fash reduces the current
fowing to PD8. That is, the current which fowed from anode to cathode at PD8 and was
applied as bias to the base of Q27 through C47, causing the collector of Q27 to conduct
and turn on through R135 through C49 turning Q29 OFF. Then, the current of R136
turns on Q30 through C50, turns of RQ15, and sets pin 1 of IC19 to "H". The minimum
pulses at C88/R205 is amplifed, and input into pin 101 of IC107S.
(4) Based on this signal, IC107S analyze wireless communication and controls fash mode
output in accordance with the commands from the master unit.

J.11 Wireless Communication, FP, TTL Flash, and External ñash metering
(1) For FP "Flat Firing" an inductance of about 60μH is necessary, so for fat fring IC107S
pin 118 goes low, turning of BRC1 and SCR2 and placing both L2 and L3, a total of
60μH, in series with the Xenon tube.
(2) For ordinary M fash, wireless communication fash pulses and external fash metering
fring, IC107S pin 118 goes high turning RQ30, and RQ33 on which turns BCR1 and
SCR2 on. At the same time RQ31 turns IT1's 30V on.
(3) When SCR2 is on the circuit is through L2 (30μH), and SCR2, bypassing L3 (30μH), so
the total inductance is only 30mH.
The reasons for this circuit are as follows:
• When using ordinary TTL, with an inductance of 60μH the extra energy in the coil
makes it difcult to cut of the Xenon tube quickly, resulting in a longer than necessary
fash and overexposure.
The Speedlite 380 and 220EX have a single 60μH coil. Precedence is given to
fat fring at the expense of TTL operation. (Since E-TTL is basically manual fash,
compensation is made within the fash.)
The Speedlite 580EX II will likely be used with the EOS-1N in TTL mode so
performance must be maintained at the same level as the Speedlite 540EZ which has a
30mH coil.
The dual 30mH coil design makes this possible.
• In E-TTL compensation could be made using 60μH, as in the Speedlite 380 and
220EX, at a small sacrifce in maximum power (Guide No.), but the dual 30μH coil
design makes this unnecessary.

380/220EX 60μH
550EX 30μH x2
580EX 30μH x2
580EX II 30μH x2
• When used in the wireless communication mode, only one coil is used to keep the time
constant as small as possible for short pulses.

J.12 Çuick Charging Voltage Tripler Circuit
Quick Flash, which triples the main capacitor voltage operates as follows.
<Negative Tripler Flash Circuit>
(1) The C22 capacitor multiplies the voltage to the fash circuit. It is charged along with the
main capacitor C14.
It is charged from the top of C14 through R28 and D22W and connected to ground by
D14.
(2) When the Xenon lamp is triggered, IT1 is turned on through SCR1 and IT1. This
efectively puts the plusside of C22 at ground level which places the minus end at a
minus voltage equivalent to the main capacitors positive voltage.
(3) At this time the base of Q14 is connected through R40 and the emitter is connected
directly to the minus side of C22 turning on Q14.
(4) With Q14 on, the (+) side of C88W becomes a negative voltage.
(5) Because the same voltage as the main capacitor is charged to C88W beforehand through
R28 and D29W, the (-) side of C88W becomes twice the negative voltage.
The voltage is applied to the negative terminal of the Xe lamp through Q24W, R139W,
and R32W.
Therefore, a voltage three times the main capacitor voltage will be applied to the Xe
tube.
J.1J External Power Circuit
(1) Recharging by external power
During regular operation, 4.8V from E1 power is output to SHE through R1, which
activates the external power converter. If pin 113 of IC107S outputs, FET5 turns on,
FET4 turns on through R310 and R309, and then recharging by the external power
starts. If output from pin 113 of SHE and IC107S is set to "L" at the time of power-of or
reset so external power is being blocked of.
(2) Detecting operation
If pin 51(A/D detection terminal) of IC107S detects the external power that has been
applied across R113S, R114S, R118S and R115, voltage regulation setting (detected
from pin 47 of IC107S) for the main capacitor is switched from 330V to 320V.
(3) Operation when abnormal voltage is detected
If pin 51(A/D detection terminal) of IC107S detects the external power that has been
applied across R113S, R114S, R118S and R115 and also voltage detected from the main
capacitor (detected from pin 47 of IC107S) is 340V or higher, output from pin 113 of
IC107S is set to "L", FET4 turns of, and external power is blocked of.

Although this adapter can also be fitted on the hot shoe of older cameras. Details are explained below. and the control panel are sealed against dust and water. 1) Improved Reliability and Features for Professionals ■EOS-1D Mark III's dust. the system as a whole is now dust.and water-resistance on par with the EOS-1D Mark III. 1. A dust. Dust. Dust.and water-resistance is attained.and water-resistance.and water-resistant adapter for the mounting foot is provided. The power switch is now shaped for better dust. The wireless selector now operates with the ZOOM button and selection dial. Sliding switch eliminated Since sliding switches (power switch and wireless selector) make water seepage easier.and water-resistant system The external power pack (CP-E4) and Off-Camera Shoe Cord (OC-E3) to be marketed together with the 580EX II are also designed for dust. 3.and water-resistant parts  . its reliability and features have been improved to meet the high-end needs of professional photographers. a high level of dust. Exterior seams and joints.and water-resistant. they have been eliminated to improve dust. Thus.

■Silent recycling Thanks to the oscillator circuit whose frequency is controlled by a microcomputer. the Speedlite was fired 10 times. In accordance with the ISO speed and aperture set for the Speedlite. Improved communication reliability In the past.General Information ■Improved reliability of direct contacts 1. Flash exposure compensation can also be set. * With four new LR6 batteries. This makes the recycling sound inaudible. The 580EX II's shape of the contacts has been changed to make the contact's surface smaller. With higher rigidity and less chance of breakage due to shock. * The hearing ability of humans ranges from 20 Hz to 20 KHz. Right after the pilot lamp lit. the pilot lamp blinks as a warning and the circuitry is cut off. and the time required for the pilot lamp to light again for the 11th flash was measured. The external metering sensor angle is approx. ■Shorter recycling time Thanks to an oscillator circuit whose frequency is controlled by a microcomputer. there have been cases where the Speedlite's metallic contacts rubbed against the hot shoe's molded plastic as the Speedlite was attached to the camera. 2. Manual external metering can be used with all EOS SLR cameras. External metering modes Two modes are provided: Auto external metering and manual external metering. 20º. the oscillation frequency is increased (70 KHz) beyond the hearing ability of humans. flash exposure compensation cannot be set. to approx. the flash is cut off.  . the flash recycling time is approx. The ISO speed and aperture information from the camera are sent to the Speedlite which then controls the flash output accordingly. The ISO speed and aperture are entered to the Speedlite manually. 20% shorter than with the 580EX (approx. ■External metering sensor An external metering sensor has been provided in response to pros who really wanted it. Auto external metering works with the EOS-1D Mark III and newer EOS digital cameras. and improve the connection and communications reliability. 2. 580EX II's external metering system The 580EX II's external metering system works with the flash reflecting off the subject measured by the external metering sensor. These countermeasures reduce the frictional dust generated with the EOS-1D Mark III's new hot shoe. It is an orthodox system. 4. the flash exposure is obtained in real-time. Metal mounting foot The mounting foot is now made of metal instead of molded plastic. ■Safety measures against external power packs If the external power pack terminal is connected to a power pack having 340 V or higher. However. the reliability is improved. Reliability is thus enhanced. When the correct exposure level is attained. 1.7 sec. 3. This prevents the Speedlite from damaging in case of 340 V or higher voltage is generated due to malfunction or alteration. This generated dust which stuck onto the contacts and caused faulty connection and communications.6 sec.). The contact's torque has also been reduced.

General Information ■PC terminal A PC terminal has been newly provided. The new locking mechanism also has a lock-release button which prevents the lock from accidental release. A locking mechanism is also provided to prevent accidental opening of the cover. This makes it much easier to attach and detach the Speedlite. it will be forced to wait for an interval of 8 seconds before it can be repeatedly fired again. The cover hinges are now metallic. the conditions is stated as follows. the battery compartment cover now opens vertically as with the 430EX. 2) New Design and Easier Operation ■New design matching the EOS-1D Mark III The Speedlite has been designed to optimally match the design of EOS-1 series digital cameras (EOS-1D Mark III). in normal use. the inner overheating prevention function may be activated. An improved exterior and better materials for the controls give the Speedlite a luxury feel.. ■Safety measures to prevent overheating If the flash is repeatedly fired many times... with fixed hinges instead of the molded plastic hinges on the cover.” . ■Battery compartment cover easier to open and close Instead of opening horizontally. 2) when the external battery pack is used and the flash is fired 40 times continuously at the full output. In case the mounting foot is broken. ■Quick attachment and new locking mechanism The locking mechanism on the mounting foot has been changed from the conventional rotating collar to a quick-lock and quick-release lever. it will return to normal after resting it for about 15 minutes. the Speedlite can still be used with the PC terminal connection (manual flash and manual external metering). If it is repeatedly fired many times again. 1) When only the flash's batteries are used and the flash is fired 60 times continuously at the full output. not to encourage the user to fire more than 20 consecutive flashes (as in the previous models). this function will be rarely activated. This function will be activated in the following conditions. Since the above conditions are quite extreme. the interval will be extended to 20 seconds. If this function is activated. This function is also cleared if you set the power switch to OFF/ON. The shape and layout of the Speedlite controls have been optimized to convey the high reliability of this top-of-the-line Speedlite.  . although it is not stated in the 580EX II instruction manual. “If you fire more than 20 continuous flashes and then fire more flashes in short intervals. This makes it smoother to open/close the cover and improves reliability. The design also conveys an advanced and refined version of the 580EX. therefore. The extension of this forced extension of the flash interval serves to prevent the flash from overheating or deteriorating. In the 580EX II instruction manual.
