Hi everyone, I have an EOS 500D and a 580EXII flash. A few month ago I bought an IPHOTO wireless trigger set Speedlight Wireless Trigger for sale - TradeMe.co.nz - New Zealand . It has worked OK a couple of times but is generally frustratingly unreliable. So I need to take another route. Pocket wizards are just too far out of my budget at the moment to even consider. I though about a long flash chord that would work but "apparently" they only come in a 1metre length acorrding to my local shop ( www.photo.co.nz ) They also say that my built in flash can trigger my 580 which I havn't worked out yet, but I fear that the front flash will ruin the effect of off camera flash to begin with. Any thoughts of a solution. Thanks in advance from a bloody freezing cold morning in NZ.
