 Post subject: HSS with wireless flash
PostPosted: Sat Apr 02, 2011 2:02 pm 

I'm looking forward to upgrade my flash gear these days, and was wondering if i should get a flash that can be used as a master flash. Not sure if it's going to be Metz 58af2 or Canon 580ex... What I need to know is how does the master wireless flash work. Is it by optical triggering or radio? So let's presume i have a canon 580 ex used as a master and a canon 430ex used as a slave. Both of the flashes allow HSS when used on the camera. So if i have HSS enabled on both flashes and make the rest of the setup, will i still get HHS compatibility with the flashes in wireless mode? Or i can use them only at the sync speed of my camera? Thanks for the responses.

canon system triggers its flashes by infra red. Although there is an ETTL communication between the camera and flashes, I don't know if the HS mode works with the slave.
