    not sure, but is it usual to get random fires with cactus triggers?

    I made sure to have everything set on channel 1 (at first 1 and 2 were on, and shit was going off every time the flash would charge)

    :rofl:

    ok, thats ok, I need to find some good subjects to take shots of

    Here is my first shot playing with 2 flashes

    [​IMG]

    Using a black fleece blanket for a background :ugh:

    put the one off a little farther back and to the top at about a 45* angle at 1/16th power, the other was about 30* really close at 1/64 power through my ghetto homemade softbox at the same level

    they pretty much retain their charge a lot longer, and when they recharge, they recharge to full capacity over a long period of time, where others slowly drop off
