How are you using the cybersyncs to fire the OCF if your ETTL flash is in the hotshoe?

I don't know how the poster is doing it, but you can trigger the cybersync with a sync cord if you don't want to or can't use the hot shoe.

I highlighted the most important part. bw!

For Sure!

Probably the most important thing for a photographer to learn is that experience trumps a formula every time. :-)

And velcro or band the CST to the flash. And, get a cable from Flash Zebra with the securing nut to screw into the PC sync on the camera.

Duh!:oops: My brain went blank as I don't usually do this type of flash hook up. Thanks for the response.

Try the Yongnuo YN-C22 Triggers,they are the bomb. You can stack your PCB or other radio poppers ontop of this trigger and fire both at once, it also allows you to keep your ETTL function to an off camera Speedlight flash, while maintaining manual mode for strobes :)

I was a little surprised to see this resurface as well. :-)

If one wants to have ETTL on camera and manual strobes off camera the Phottix Strata II is a nice option since it has hard wire ETTL pass through to the on-camera speedlite and then delivers X sync to the off camera lights.

There are lots of other options as well. The YN-622 is one but a bit more complicated to setup than the Strata since the speedlite mounted on the YN-622 on camera is not seen by the camera. It is a Group one speedlite. That means the strobes have to be setup as another group in M mode.
