So, I'm about to purchase some PocketWizard radio triggers and a light meter and I've a few questions. FYI, I currently have 2 Elinchrom 400BX monolights and I also have Canon 580EX I and 420EX flashes.
I am considering purchasing (2) FlexTT5 transceivers and (1) MiniTT1 transmitter. Is there any reason why I should buy a 3rd FlexTT5 instead of the MiniTT1?
Also, if I wanted to use my flashes (i.e. for a background light and hair light) in conjunction with the monolights, can I do this by:
1) attaching one FlexTT5 to one of the monolights and tripping the other monolight optically?
2) attaching the other FlexTT5 to one of the flashes, and then tripping then tripping the other flash optically or as a TTL slave?
I'm all but positive that #1 will work but I have my doubts about #2.
Cables: I think these are the cables that I need to go along with these triggers. Please correct me if I am wrong.
1) MM1 for connecting the FlexTT5 to the 400BX monolights. Would I ever need a cable longer than 1'?
2) CM-N3-ACC for connecting a FlexTT5 to my 5D for remotely triggering the shutter.
As for the light meter, I am looking at the Sekonic L-358 Flash meter with transmitter module. Is there another brand/model in this price range that you would recommend over the L-358?
Thanks for the help.
