    I know I saw someone talking about 3rd party transmitter on here a while back but I forgot the name! Any suggestions for cheaper alternatives?

    what are you looking to do?
    get ettl with off camera flashes?

    you can use a 580EX on camera as a master and it will retain ettl

    or you can use pocketwizard tt1 and tt5 to get ettl off camera



    if you use other triggers like pocketwizard plus II or poverty wizards you get the flash off camera but you are in full manual--no ettl

    hope that helps

    sweet thanks! I was trying to avoid buying another flash... I already have a 430ex but I kind of want to have ettl, I am thinking about just getting a cable.

    cables are ok too
    but they can break quite easily from what I hear

    With that said, I will still be buying an ettl cable
