will i be able to control the power of the 420ex slave, manually from a master flash? (if i use radio trigger - not ettl version - to fire the master flash)

yes, the pop-up flash is also a good and simple option, but in case of a closeup portrait (or something like that) even that very low power flash can cause unwanted shadows (i am thinking about attaching a homemade IR filter onto it, but it might bring out blood or just make the picture red... what do you think?)

or just play with the 420ex as long as i can, and then get 2 manually controllable flash units and a cheap radio trigger system with 2 receivers?
