wireless flash trigger vs another flash
7 months ago

First and foremost, forgive my ignorance on this subject. I've been looking for a way to control my HVL-F43AM wirelessly and I could go the trigger route (phottix etc). But can you not have the same ability using a second flash? Eg: another 43AM? At $330 for the Phottix transmitter/receiver doesn't it seem like a better deal to just get another flash for the extra $50-$70?

I'm sure I'm missing something..
