Two Canon 580 EX II, slave & Master
Mar 5, 2013

I have two Canon 580 EX II's. I set them up master and slave. However, the slave does not always fire.. Hit and miss. Seems silly to aim the camera at the slave flash as I don not what a photo of my flash and soft box...
I guess there is a line of sight issue with these units. Is the a third party device that would work...
I did an outside shoot with a couple and had to keep asking them if it fired.. Really professional & puts me off task as I have to take lots of test shots to see if it fires. Why even have the remote option if it barely works?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated; I 'd like to get around this frustrating issue.

Thanks in advance
