    depends on what triggers you get. For 580EXII got PC sync so no problem. If you get nissin flashes i dont think they have PC sync ports. So might have to get the hot shoe with the PC sync port. this is for cyber syncs/ pocket wizards/ skyports.

    If you're getting cactus/ebay triggers some of them have the hotshoes on the recievers itself so u just slot your flash on it.

    depends on how you want to look at it. If I go nature or not so crowded places overseas, the belt system will definately be better. However, if I would to go to crowded places or places that I will look like a snatch thief or robbery bait, I'll settle with a backpack or sling bag. Tripods are definately the bulkiest to carry around.

    joe, with an impeding purchase of 7D kinda near. Haha!

    You probably gotta reconsider your options. 7D has the built-in commander which can command up to 3 canon offshoe flashes to be on the safe side with E-TTL mode.

    yah loh.. i assume my destinations would be a mixed variety of those. some crowds, some probably sparingly. worried about the snatch/rob bait thing e most actually. but will be travelling in a vehicle, then go out and walk about, then get back in and move on again kind.

    How about the lumepro flash that you recommend? Does it work like 580exii?

    Oh yar! Now that you've mentioned it. Thanks for the heads up. So does it mean that 430exii will be enough to be one of the offshoe flashes? Which means my final setup will most probably be 7D + 580exii + 2 x 430exii?

    ya you can do that, for the lumopro you'll need triggers.

    the 7D combo should work, but it wont beat cls. hehe.

    the 7D commander uses IR issit?

    or is it like the nikon commander or something

    anyhows i still rec. getting triggers. lol

    Nope. It works like CLS but of cos CLS is the forerunner.

    But with the built-in commander, it does saves me a great deal of cash to put into other areas of investment unless we are talking about PW which is a different story.

    Anything that gives me E-TTL mode is very welcoming although I'm learning how to use manual flash at the moment which sometimes can give me great results.

    Yes. It can be one of the combos. Or if you dun mind 2nd hand 580EXII, you can get them off cheap (comparing a BN 430EXII which is about $450 to a 2nd hand gd con'd 580EXII @ $550 to $580) at BnS. Condition is really gd and you will be surprised.

    Thanks for the info! Looks like it is time to save up for the new combo and gotta find a storeroom to hide the upcoming toys...
