Hi, S2 mode, driving a remote slave, (Nissin calls it SD mode) will work with/from a single camera mounted (or ETTL cord mounted) ETTL Speedlite - some of the time. I would not rely on it.

Using your T4i's pop-up controller is a different thing. If you are then using Canon Wireless Light/IR type to both control (FEC) & trigger your off-cam 420Ex, then S2 will hardly ever work, as Canon Wireless uses a more complex coded pre-flash signal.
