| p.1 #10 · Playing with OCF - C&C please |
I understand that your intend was to use these specific flashes. You received already good feedback to that extend ... You said you use the 580EX and 430EX together. I would suppose that you used the second flash as a fill light from a different angle but I don't see that effect (?) It looks more like a single flash has been used, not ?
580 was on 5Dmkii to trigger 430exii, I dont know if there is any other mecahnism from 5Dmkii to trigger off-camera flash (which is bit of lame - considering even EF-S mounts with pop-up flash gives you lot more flexibility to trigger OCF). If I'm missing something here please tell me. I can use a trigger, I've got Apurture triggmaster which I'm not too fond of as it gives only trigger and no other control of OCF. With 580EXii mounted on hot-shoe I could control some aspects of OCF from camera.
You could use a long (16 or 32ft) OCF cable that will let you use your flash the same way as if it would be mounted in the camera's hot shoe. Search for "OCFGEAR SYL ARENA". I prefer the TT1/TT5 pocket wizards especially if you want to use more than one light directly for your setup - with one light and not with too much foot traffic around you, the long cable is the fastest and more simple setup.
