    I’m after a flash for my 7d… I dont ever plan on using it on the hotshoe… so it needs to work remotely.

    Yongnuo YN568EX or Nissin Di866 ? I’m not sure if the Yongnuo has to work in slave mode remotely? does that mean I’ll also need wireless triggers?

    How much you looking to spend?
    What are you looking to shoot?
    I like the Canon own brand that allow you to synch shutter speeds. They will work remotely too. An expert will be along soon.

    You can use the 7D built in flash to trigger other (canon) flashes but you’re better off with triggers IMO – more reliable. RF602s are ones a lot of people use and are very cheap. If you’re doing everything manual you can get the cheapest Yongnuo flash, you just need to be able to adjust power. Being able to tilt/swivel/zoom the flash is preferable though.

    If not using triggers you can use the YN flashes in a dumb optical slave mode but I think there might be some that work with the 7Ds built in flash to let you adjust power etc remotely – not sure

    ok so triggers bought – your correct they do seem the most popular and more reliable than cactus ones in the past

    still unsure on which flashes now tho – i’ll look at the cheaper man ones

    Unless you’re in a rush as in recycle times Yongnuo or Nissin are as good as the posh ones.
