Does "slave" on Canon Speedlite 420EX work same as a "slave unit" of years ago?
Posted on 2007-07-21
I have a Canon G6 digital camera and a Canon Speedlite 420EX flash. I know the flash has a slave you can turn on. In the old days, a "slave unit" on a secondary flash would make the secondary flash go off if there were another flash in the room (nearby) [whether you wanted it to go off or not].
Can anyone simply tell me whether or not I can use that same set up...In other words, take a flash picture with my G6 and have my 420EX also flash? If so, how?
