Re: d800 Wireless Flash

Great info, thanks much for the replies, very helpful info. I had a canon 580ex11 which was a nice speedlite but sold it recently along with my canon gear. I also have a Sunpak pz5000af for canon, but they only sell used for $30 on ebay so I may as well keep it and use it off camera. Any flash will trigger it, including the d800 in commander mode.

That commander mode btw, makes a pretty strong flash. Am I to understand that the dimmer pre-flash in commander mode is what triggers the off camera flash and that the brighter flash just after doesn't affect the lighting of the subject?

A nikon SB-600-900 is in the offing soon. I may try that little filter you mention before looking for a su-800 or pocket wizard.

On another note, has anyone tried those pocket wizard knock-offs on ebay? (much cheaper).
