550, 580, 580 II. I mostly use the 550 off camera now, and I like the mounting of the 580 II, but the 580/580 II work pretty much the same.

Canon 580ex II and Nikon SB24 mostly for off camera work, and Sigma 530ST for collecting dust on shelf.

4x550ex
11x540ez

Would own at least one 580exII if they worked reliably with my PW Flexs.

sorry to hijack the thread, but Hermes, is 550ex really work very well with the Flex (range wise) ?
and we can use it full features like 580ex/II ?

In terms of range & reliability they work very well.

There are a few features of Canon's wireless system that they don't have. I don't think the Flex itself limits them in any way.

3, 540EZ, 430EZ (needs replacing with a 540 or something) and an SB-24. All of 'em are used off camera. I wouldn't mind another one but I'd have to buy another Cybersync which would be a hassle.

How many speedlights do you own and which ones?

Did you mean Speedlights or speedlites or just flashes?

Speedlights = N***n
Speedlites = Canon
Flash = Any
:cool:
