I picked up a remote flash trigger off ebay for about $25 shipped from Hong Kong. It's basically a really cheap radio transmitter and receiver with a couple of dip switches and 2 AAA batteries. You clip the transmitter onto your hotshoe and the receiver to your flash, and voila! Wireless flash triggering up to 30 meters away!

I really want a set of pocket wizards which will do ETTL etc. wirelessly instead of just dumb triggering, but at 1/10th the price?
Yes. I think this will do nicely.

Now that i know it'll work I just might pick up a second receiver for my old Sunpak flash so that I can trigger two at once. Double the pleasure, double the fun!
