    I have a 430ex that's triggered by a Cactus receiver. I wanted to know if I could trigger another flash by connecting it to the receiver via hot shoe to pc cord. Your replies are greatly appreciated!

    Welcome to the forum.

    I think that would work.

    How are you finding the Cactus trigger to be working with your 430EX? I've got that set up and I've found it to be terribly inconsistant. It doesn't fire every time and it often fires repeatedly. It's a common problem that seems to happen with Canon flashes and the 430EX in particular. For that reason, I use a different flash when using that trigger.

    Thanks I'll try it and post results.
    Yea its not EXTREMELY terrible, but it's not as good as I thought it would be. But I guess I'm getting what I paid for. I had trouble with the flash settings and what not. I would say it fires correctly 70% of the time. What flash do you use with it?
