Re: This rant isn't logical

I'm afraid I haven't messed with it enough to know. Since this is marketed to the digital cameras (most of which do a preflash), I'm betting that it's the second flash. At least it must be doing that, or I wouldn't see anything in my pictures with it.

Bryan--
I meant to ask-- Does the slave trigger go off on the second flash
or the first? I woud like to use a slave in modes other than
straight maual, but of course it would need to be triggered by the
second flash to do this.

Thanks, Bryan-- I'll order pretty soon. My goal is to use the ST-E2
trigger to set off the 420 EX and have it set off a slave on the
other side or behind the subject, cranked down to 1/2 or 1/4
strength. I'll tell you how it goes...

There was some special when I bought mine, so it's a tad more
expensive now. But here's where I got mine:

Enjoy!

Bryan,
Where did you buy the Sunpak? And what model is it? I have a
"scrim" panel from my old theater days that I would like to use as
a diffusion panel for a slave flash, and this sounds like something
I could really use.

Funny... just for kicks, I bought the little Sunpak digicam flash
with the built in slave for maybe $35 (even came with a little
tripod), though I have the 420EX. It has a built in slave, and I
set the G1 for flash compensation to the absolute lowest setting
(just enough to fire the slave). This combination works perfectly
for me, but maybe I'm doing something wrong.
