Slave flash use

Hi All

I have discovered something that is mentioned within the depths of certain threads on here but maybe worthy of specific mention?

If you set the camera on manual and the flash to manual dischage then any gun attached to the hot shoe will act to fire a slave gun. With some trial and error the correct exposures are soon determined.

So far IU haven't been able to make the pop up flash work as the optical trigger for the slaves as even in manual mode the camera's own flash must emit a pre-flash which triggers the slave ahead of the shutter opening.

Apologies to the many who already know about this workaround but hope it helps others in some way.

Cheers, Geoff
