Canon eos 1D - turning fill flash on/off

    I have a canon eos 1D and a 550ex speedlite. I can't get my camera out
    of fill flash mode.

    A while back I handed my camera to someone to set it to fill flash
    mode (at a workshop). At least that is my latest conclusion. Now I
    can't figure out how to get the flash to work normally again. I've
    tried everything else I could think of - even had the camera checked
    out for repairs and bought a second flash.

    Thank you for your help.

    Sounds like you've got it set for underexposure in E-TTL mode perhaps ... does
    it say -1 or -1 1/3 or something similar in the LCD window? If so just push
    the sel/set button and then push the + button until you have it zeroed out
    again.

    This should be covered in the manual.
