I watch DigitalRev TV every week, and this week, it was about Pocket Wizards:
This makes me think, I want to start experimenting with my 550EX. I've been really caught up with lenses lately, but I think I'm settled for now, since I just picked up a Sigma 30 1.4 a few weeks ago, and what I have lens wise is good enough for my hobby needs.
I've been reading around on Strobist today, and I also just found out about speedliting.com, and I think I wanna try it out.
I noticed this problem the other night when I tried to use my 550EX to shoot off camera in the dark, but realized the problem was, I need something to trigger it, and now the video makes sense haha
Well, Pocket Wizards are definitely out of my range, since I'm a university student, but I found this on Strobist: http://www.gadgetinfinity.com/product.php?productid=17567
I have a 40D, and a 550EX. If I bought the Cactus V5, would I just be able to plug and play? I've been trying to find specific information about my particular combo of flash and camera but it's been hard so I want to just ask you light knowledged out there.
My 550EX does not have a PC Sync port, and I guess the only official Canon Speedlite that does is the 580EXii. 40D has the port, but I'm not sure if it'll do anything for me.
Sorry if this has been posted, but I am totally new to off camera lighting and don't know where to start -_-
Please let me know!
