Re: is it possible...about flash?

I will have to refer you to Syl Arena's "Speedlite's Handbook" which describes in detail what you want to know. I have not yet tried it myself, but I see no reason why it should not work.
Good luck.

then,all disabled both builtin flash and slave flash
what's the matter?
how the slave can see the command sequence from the master?
i cannot disable the buildin flash on the slave?

You can use the camera's built-in flash as a master, but disabled. It will fire the command sequence to trigger the slave for both e-TTL and for actually illuminating the picture, but it will not fire while the shutter is open. The only condition is that the slave must be able to see the command sequence from the master.
