    Does the 420ex have a manual mode? I didn't think they did.

    yes but you are going to need a hot shoe to PC thingy. Even though the cactus trigger has the shoe connector built in on it, I have read over and over to not use it cause it is flimsy and to connect using the PC port. The cactus has a PC port and only the 580's have one.

    one of these days I will have a set if aCab ever send me mine:rofl:

    oh, and you can use an external batter pack with a 580EX. You cannot use one with the 430EX.
