5D-II is a problem
In reply to kysersosai, Aug 21, 2012

I believe the 5D-II does not have the ability to fire flash units remotely.

And the 430EX-II cannot fire a flash remotely.

So you need a transmitter on top of the camera, to set off teh two 430EX flash units, or a special cable, or a 580EX or 600EX flash/

My T4i and 7D combo allows off camera wireless from either body.

The purpose of the T4i is teo have a backup for journalism assignments, but it works fine as an in-action second body when you don't want to change lenses.
