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!

yeah, the shot where I got the cat was crap, but it was amusing. I was setting up a shot in the bedroom with the lights off, and he wandered over to check out the blinky red light on the flash. What was I supposed ta do?

is way fun, and totally cheap. I was toying with saving up for pocket wizards or something, but I think that $300 can go towards a nice lens instead. Maybe a 10-22... [/drool]

Getting my flash to work with it necessitated putting the flash into only one of its modes, a mode I've never used before. So I need to dig out the manual for my Sigma flash and do some reading.

oooh, very, very cool! I have another friend who had a remote flash, and did some really nice portrait work with it. coolness!

I wish I was productive enough to do Napaintomo. It occurs to me too late that I could have swung (and benefitted from) Nasketchomo. Oh well, next year.
