Has anyone tried using the mulit flash on the mark iii, it seems that canon is using the same method as on the mark ii, you to leave the flash on the camera mount in order to trransmit to the other flashes.

I was hoping canon would do like on 7d where you can transmit without having a flash mounted on the camera.

The reason why the 7D can "command" off camera flashes is it utilizes the pop-up flash to send the signal to off-camera flashes. The 5Ds do not have this feature, since most pros tend to use a hotshoe flash as the master or some radio freq. based trigger system.

Well it was nice if they could include a built in radio transmitter :p
But I guess it was like self shooting in the leg on selling the IR transmitters.

You just have to buy the version with the popup flash silly!

You know that the new flash they announced at the same time uses radio instead of IR, right?
