Best Speedlight setup for 5D Mark iii?
Jul 4, 2012

Okay I am sending out an SOS. I want to be able to be wireless, and I also want a nice Canon flash to pop on top of the camera for event shooting.

There is the 600 + un-released ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter ($1,000 investment)

Pocket wizard doesn't support mark iii yet from what I've read?

Is there an option for with 480X and the cheaper canon flashes? I read something about a 580 as a master on the camera and a 480 as a slave? How does that work, is it wireless? Can it detect it through a softbox? I think I read the 580 had issues with the mark iii?
