Re: radio trigger advice please: D700, SB-900, Metz 54 mz3

I have Metz flashes (50MZ-5 and 54MZ-3) and use Phottix Strato slaves. I'm very happy with them. You get TTL with the on-camera flash but not the remote flash. I always set my remote flash output manually, so this works great for me. $100 for a transmitter + receiver set. I've used them in very large event halls and never bumped into a range limit. Build and reliability are good, and they work with AAA rechargeables. My old Stratos have 4 channels, and the newer Stratto II units also have 4 groups. If you don't need wireless output adjustment from the camera, these are definitely the way to go.
