I just visited the website and cannot seem to find that slave you have mentioned. Can you be more specific on which model it was? I'm looking for a slave too that will work with the 700/800... The ones I have found are the digi-slaves flashes which are just too big/expensive but they are the only ones that does not trip on the pre-flash.....
Keat:Go to flash units, then look at Electronic Flash Slave. I don't know any more than what's on the page there about it. I am not sure.
If it will work with the Canon 800 hence my question to others if they have used it.Mike..
Ahh ok.. well I can tell you that the 700/800 sends out a pre-flash prior to the main flash (it is very subtle) but most slaves trigger on the pre-flash. http://www.srelectronics.com/ sells the slaves you are looking for if you're interested... I just need more compact ones like my midi slaves.....
I have used two Kenko converter lenses to extend the range of my Nikon 800 zoom. The telephoto is their 2X KGT-20 which will require a 28mm to 37mm step-up adapter. It is truly superb! I am very particular about image quality and it is extremely sharp corner to corner, with no noticeable chromatic distortion. Autofocus works perfect with it. It is also pretty inexpensive (expect about $35). The wide-angle is their .42X converter (KW-42 I think - also 37mm thread size).
I hear Nikon's wide angle is very good but much more expensive.The Nikon 800 has a pre-flash, so you will need a slave sensor that triggers on the second flash - I don't know of anyone other than srelectronics making those at this time, and they are pretty..
I am have got a Coolpix 880 and am looking for lens attachments. Nikon lens are expensive so I am looking for some Generic Option. Are you able to help. Thanks Gerrit..
