    Does anyone know what a "wink flash" is? I saw a reference made to it on a Canon photography forum somewhere, but I couldn't find any information on it when I tried googling it. It supposedly works with an off camera speedlite flash and works better than a bounce card. Also, if anyone can find a photo of it anywhere, I would like to see what it looks like.

    Check out a Metz 45 CL 4. A wink flash is a small flash that fires straight ahead so that you get catch lights in your subject's eyes while the main flash is being bounced.

    Thanks Mike! Any way this could work with a Canon speedlite 580EX?
