Re: Your project is confusing

Hi, A 358 with the ST-E2 is going to be a nightmare. (I believe that the 358 is too good in that its sample time is so brief that it only captures the pre-flash.)

Seedybee's Yn 622Cs are an attractive option, but it should certainly be easy to fire your 580ExII from a Cybersync Receiver - of course pc cables & their connections can be very flakey. CFn 1 on the 580ExII can be set to avoid 'sleep' mode. Good luck.
