Flashes like the 580 EX and 430 EX (perhaps the 270 EX II as well - I don't know, I've never used any) can be set to be independent slaves. In that mode, where they don't belong to any flash group at all, you can set each slave's power level manually, but you have to do it on the flash itself. The power level can't be transmitted from the ST-E2. You can still trig them from the ST-E2, though, and the ST-E2 can at the same time control flashes belonging to groups A and B in E-TTL mode.

Thank you for your attention.

Thats what I do. I always set the flash power manually, in each unit, and trigger using the ST-E2 in camera.

So what I want to know: will I be able to trigger 580ex (manually set), 430ex (manually set), and 270exII (E-TTL - since the unit itself dosen't have "external" manual control), using ST-E2?

Peace! Hakuna matata!
