Off Camera Flash ... 27 Jul 2016 21:04 #2774

Hi Folks,

I'm trying to figure this out myself but struggling.

Put simply, I want to (learn to) use my flash off camera. I purchases an off-camera shoe cable but it is only 60cm long and essentially useless. :unsure:

I'm looking at getting a transmitter but I'm unsure if it will be compatible both with my camera and flash.

Transmitter: Canon ST-E3
Camera: Canon 5D2
Flash: Canon 430ExII

Any advice welcomed!!

Cheers

Matt

Hi Matt as we spoke about the other day I use the Phottix Strato II Multi transmitters and receivers.

Should work with your setup no problem but worth googling, they haven't missed a beat, all of the problems that I've had have been operator not equipment problems.

Hi Matt

Sorry for the late reply..I've been away.

Happy to bring along my set up at next meeting as there is some interest in this topic. I am not sure whether your 430 ex will be compatible.

I actually use Yongyoung (sic) and they are relatively cost effective for the amount of use they get. I use the remote on top of the camera.

If you are interested I will show you pre meeting on the 25/8
