yeah. just basically multiply by a little over 3.
1meter is 3 ft 3.5 inches or so.

The flashes are a great tool. relatively inexpensive and will work with any lens.

430ex2 = $270 new
better beamer = $40 new

for LESS than a cheap telephoto you have a tool you can use many ways.

I hope you're right about it being simple 'cause I just looked at the beginner's guide to flash posted in another section and all the formulas, multiplications, square roots, etc. etc. WHOA! But I think I am going to work towards that above combination.

The flash is very easy to use.

Put it on the camera. Enable high speed sync and ETTL should be automatically
enabled.
Put the flash extender on and shoot like normal.

The extenders allow a decent flash to work upwards of 25 meters away

With high speed sync, you decrease your effective flash range.

Yes, but the flash-extender helps to compensate for that.

I've seen some pretty impressive BIF shots made with the High Speed Synch turned on -- the flash with the Better Beamer provided nice fill while the high shutter speed froze those fast-moving wings. And fill on the underside of a BIF under a bright sky can be a very good thing!
