Well, it isn't exactly using the "Wireless" flash mode. Neither does the Metz flash need to be synced to a channel. Effectively you have a remote flash in manual/dumb mode that is triggered by the built-in camera flash instead of radio triggers. The pre-flash is suppressed and light output intensity is controlled by manually setting the values from 1/1 (full power) to 1/128.

Aha, I get it.

Do you know whether it would respond to the limited built-in flash if the camera is set to be a controller only but not contribute to the exposure? I ask, since it is supposed to ignore the pre-flash.
