I'm guessing you're talking about a wireless connection...

Unfortunately, the 430EX can only act as a slave. You'll need one of the following to act as a master control unit: 550EX, 580EX, 508EX II or the ST-E2 transmitter :-(

How do I use this flash as a slave?


You need to set the flash to slave and the same channel as the master. If the flash doesn't have this function it may be able to be fired optically. Set the master flash to low power and set the off camera flash to optical.

Canon 580exii speedlight, I want to only use the slaves, but they won't fire when I turn off the master


You didn't say what camera model you are using.
If you have 7D/60D/T4i you can have a total of 3 wireless ir flashes.

580EX II must be set at Master, say Group A & Channel 1
Two 270EX II must be set at Slave, say Group A & Channel 1
or
One 270EX II set at Group A & Channel 1
Second 270EX II set Group A & Channel 2


Then go into camera menu & turn off Master flash & turn settings for those two flashes.

Synchronizing two sb-800s with a nikon d300


You knoq the SB-800 has a slave mode called SU-4 in the menu. It activates remote flash. When your on camera flash fires so will the slave flash. The slave flash will need to be able to "see" the light from the on-camrea flash to work.

To access the SU-4 remote mode hold the "SEL" button in for a few seconds until the menu appears. Scroll down to the SU-4 setting and turn it on.

When using this method set the flash to manual and set the power as needed.

Regards.

Iam having a problem getting the two flash units to sink. I have set the parameters by the book for the master and the second the slave. They are both on the same channel. They are both on the ETTL mode....


Make sure the slave is far enough in fornt of the master flash to see it. If the two flashes are next to each other then the slave is not seeing the master signals.

AC Slave Flash - How make it works


A slave flash unit is a flash that has a sensor that fires the flash when it senses the burst of flash from the camera's built-in flash unit. Since many digital cameras fire the flash twice for each picture (the first is to set white balance and perhaps focus), these units are designed so they fire when the camera's second flash goes off.

To use it with your D60, just use your built in flash to fire off the slave flash...

Synv Flash to camera with no hotshoe


Buy a small slave unit that attatches to the flash bottom.  Use the pop up flash on your camera set to the lowest power.  The slave unit will detect your cameras flash and fire the flash with the slave unit at the same time.  I am doing this with this same flash myself with fairly nice results.

Extra lights with sony cyber shots


any camera that has a flash, can trigger a "slave" flash. I have one that came with a little bracket that hooks into the tripod mount point. Work great, it also came with a little tripod so that you could use it for backlighting, etc.
