whether there was a PC socket available. I assumed that one didn't

Maybe theres another way.

Good point,

if the camera has not E-ttl, you can just use the flashes in manual. The main flash on the camera's shoe and the secon on an adapter with pc socket, both tethered by a PC cord or the transmitter plugged in the camera's Pc socket and the receiver in the adapter plug. if the camera has no PC socket, you need a second adapter to place between the flash and the camera.

If the camera is E-ttl, the problem is if it has not a PC socket; Then you have, either mod your 430 EX to add a PC socket, or buy this item :

Have a look at Michael Bass blog :

He sells the above item or can add an aux sync socket on the 430 EX.
