    So I'm going to need to get a wireless flash trigger for lighting a speedlight and a slave. Should I just go with cybersync? I like the compactness of it, thoughts?

    do you really need cybersyncs though?
    alot of people have been having no misfires with their new yongnuo triggers
    flickr is full of threads about how good they are
    and they only cost like 20ish for trigger and receiver

    or you can get the rf 602 which take AAA batteries and can also fire cameras remotely

    They might fire reliably and stuff, but stuff made in China has a life span, especially if they're super cheap like these triggers are. Sure their price might outweigh their life, but if I'm mounting hundreds of dollars worth of lighting on $10 plastic receivers, I might think twice. At least with the cybersync, I have the option to mount to a sturdier mount/bracket.

    I found it, it was in reply to my question if anyone was selling their cybersyncs. I sent him a PM.

    cybercyncs are awesome and I use them.

    That being said, cybersync or not, has nothing to do with your mounting options. If anything, the cybercyncs are awkward and require some kind of DIY mount. I made mine with velcro.

    I know what you mean, but the previously suggested eBay remote triggers have their receivers with built in hot shoes that you mount your speedlight onto.
