Hi all,

Does anyone knows if there is any third-party flashlite which can act as a slave flash unit and activated by another flash (can be internal flash oso)?

Thanks.

there're many which could do it or you could get an adaptor. The only problem however, is that digital cameras usually fire a pre-flash which might wrongly trigger the external flash.

You can buy a slave trigger for about $18 (Made in China one, not the Japan one, but works just as well) at CP.

However, your camera must not have a pre-flash. Some digital cameras flash twice - first time to meter the light, and a second time to actually take the picture. If your camera is this type, then you cannot use the slave trigger, because it will fire on the pre-flash.

You can, however, buy a Digislave, which will do the job (but of course it is more expensive). This will allow the flash to fire on the second flash from your camera.

I see.. it depends on the flash mode you select. Red-eye reduction mode, for example, will have 2 flashes. Auto mode will only have one.

Any idea what brand is the $18 one you mentioned? Any pics you can show me?

And how much will the Digislave costs?

Thanks!
