    It's probably rather expensive and you can't tilt it for bouncing the flash off the ceiling or swivel to bounce off walls.

    But the cheap slave that is wireless are on rated at 8m range at ISO100. Example is the kako E-9000 series. With this rating, it may not be powerful to do a bounce flashing..

    How about getting the Olympus cable and an auto flash instead? Costwise both options might end up similar.

    HOCL is selling the cable 2nd hand

    Anyway, what's the cost for the Metz flash? A Vivitar 285HV (more powerful plus swivel) plus the (2nd hand) Olympus cable comes to about $210.

    Good ideal but i am also considering the size.
    My main usage is for photoshots during overseas tour. I would need the most compact yet powerfull flash.

    Is the metz 34 CS-2 the most compact and powerfull?
