    I'm looking to pick up a nice wireless flash setup. Would you guys help me pick out something nice? There are so many options. I currently have a Sigma EF-500 DG Super flash. I am pretty sure I can use this as a Master but I need two nice slave flashes. I may be wrong though.

    Perhaps one of those wireless units to attach to the hotshoe.

    Not sure what my best route is.

    Thanks fellas! :)

    I like pocket wizards myself but they are pricey. I chose them mainly for their reliability and the fact that they will also work to fire my camera remotely.

    I got a set a couple of weeks ago...love 'em. I only got to shoot with them once since but I didn't have any misfires the whole day. I then realized my father had an older flashgun I could use so I just ordered another receiver.

    i've got a set of them too. i've had a few misfires, but since i'm pretty much just using them to take portraits of my kids it hasn't really mattered. :o

    I plan on portrait work and still automotive shots. Portability would be great as I travel and would like to experiment outdoors more.
