    Is it still possible to use CLS with wireless triggers?

    For example, if i had only 2 pocket wizards, can i use them to trigger an off camera flash while still using the pop up flash(tbh, not sure if itll pop up all the way with a pw on it, but maybe cybersyncs or something else?) and CLS to fire off a sb-600?

    as far as I understand it won't be compatible.

    Youd need to put the flash in su-4 mode and the s-600 can't do that

    you need the SU-800 to do this

    (i have one for sale if you're interested).

    or pocketwizard is said to be releasing some new ones this CLS/ TLL support this year.

    If you're trying to fire alien bees, they have a slave light sensor that'll fire them without a PW. Friend and I had our CLS on and firing a AB at a wedding few weeks ago.

    Won't the pre flashs set off the alien bees prematurely?

    I didn't notice too much lag... but then again, we used CLS w/ 2 SB800s on the stand, SU800 on buddy's camera, and a SB800 on mine controlling everything. we used the AB for some dancing shots... thats about it. :dunno:
