Best contemporary solution for R1 off camera synched flash?
Jan 19, 2010

I own a Sony R1 and an a700 DSLR. I am new to flash photography, but now must learn it. I acquired a Sony external flash unit for my a700. It is triggered off camera by infrared light beam from the camera. I got that going and I'm thrilled to death! Now I need a similar set up for the R1 - if it is possible to accomplish correctly. Could be synched by cord, light, or pocket wizard, whatever is the best solution.

Apologies because I think this is an old topic that has been discussed many times before. But since the R1 is gradually fading from the market those threads seem a bit out of date. With new technology being introduced every day I am seeking advice on the best contemporary solution from you strobe experts out there.

Thank you,
Clark
