I was wondering what I need to use a 430ex off camera? I wanted to place the 430ex somewhere else and try shooting from different angles. What would you guys suggest I do?

Yes, that would work. The manufacturing quality is not good, and many people have run into problems, but many have not.

I tried retiring, but gave it up - it's a dead end

If you go with a wireless radio trigger, you can't use ETTL because the flash will not be able to communicate with the camera. You will have to use manual control on the flash and adjust power as needed for each exposure. (1/8, 1/4, 1/2, etc.)

NONE....

Only the Canon wireless system found in it's Master/Slave flashes will give you ETTL. There is a brand called "Radio Popper", but they just relay the Canon signal between the Master and the Slave.

Here is some reading on the Canon wireless system: http://photonotes.org …lash/index3.htm​l#wireless (external link)
