How will that work when theres no way for the camera to transmit TTL
information through the hotshoe? Theres no TTL pins.

The question is how to trigger one flash ttl and the other one manual.

Of course the 2 flashes cannot work in e-ttl, and the 430 EX cannot even trigger the second one in manual mode in the wireless Canon system, since it cannot set as a "master".

The only way, IMHO, to trigger both is to use one on the camera's shoe (manual or ttl) and the second, fired by a cactus transmitter (or a pc cord) in the camera's PC socket.

If the hotshoe had TTL pins then this would probably work.

Theres only one sun. Why do I need more than one light to get a
natural result?
