Re: Remote flash question

You've gotten some excellent responses. I would just add one point about selecting a flash unit -- pay attention to how it handles standby. You would ideally like to disable standby entirely when using a flash remotely. In my experience, flashes don't seem to be able to "wake up" remotely like they can on-camera, so you often have to go to the flash unit and cycle power to get it back awake. Make sure the unit remembers its last setting if you have to do that, but ideally you can at least set the time-out for a very long time. FWIW
