Canon 5Dii off camera flash using Metz 58 AF-2, having problems - please help!
I'm using a canon 5Dii and have a Metz 58 AF-2 digital flash. I need to use it off camera on a tripod but cannot get this to work!?
As there isn't a pop up flash with the canon 5dii, is there any other way to trigger the flash wirelessly? I have 2 pocket wizards and can connect one into my camera's hot shoe, but there is no way to attach the other wizard to the flash on the tripod as it only appears to accept a USB wire to download and update software.
Please can anyone help? I'm stumped! Is my only option to buy another Metz flash for the top of my camera to trigger the wireless? If so - will any model of Metz work?
I have a great Minolta digital flash and tried using the Metz on my camera hotshoe to trigger the Minolta flash off camera, but this didn't work either!!
Thanks in advance.
