Re: I want to get my Sunpak Flash Off Camera

I use the "SMDV MySlave Quick 100".  There is a trigger/receiver for about $40 (amazon), or a $60 combo that adds a second receiver and two flash diffusers for speed-light type lights.  They are dumb triggers, but they have a PC and hot shoe trigger mechanism (so if one fails the other usually still works) with all sorts of adapters for special flash connections and mounting hardware.  i often can get above normal flash sync speed for my camera by abut half a stop.

These are cheap/inexpensive but look/act professional, if that makes any sense.

And of course just to say so, they have zero ittl (or whatever) communication functionality.

I am far too busy taking pictures to look for problems with the cameras I use to take them.
