I've done some researching and I cannot seem to figure out the best system and needed components for triggering my flash off-camera.
I am wanting to trigger my flash mounted on a light stand w/ umbrella and I want the flexability and dependability of using a radio signal. I intend on setting the flash (580 EX) intensity manually, so I do not need TTL.
I really like the compact size of the MicroSync system (http://www.microsyncdigital.com), but I've read something about the shutter sync speed being an issue. The other thing is I don't quite understand how it would attach to the flash either.
I would also consider the Pocket Wizard, as I've seen great reviews on it. The only drawback is it's bulky and with the existing bulk of my 30D and one of my "L" lenses, I'm not big on adding alot more.
So my question is has anyone used either device and found any drawbacks to them and what additional items do you need to connect it to the flash to trigger it in Manual Mode?
I greatly appreciate your help!
