Flash triggering of older flashes
« on: March 02, 2012, 05:07:57 AM »
Forgive me if I missed this somewhere in the storm of information this morning, but does anyone know:

Can the new 5D3 can trigger older flashes (430EX, EXII, 580EX, EXII)? ... using the old protocol (non radio). I believe the 7D can do this, right?

I really don't need another flashgun, just for the radio thing, and the 430EX that I have can only work on camera, or as a slave (not master), so this would be really handy...

My wife's D80 has all this built in, and its years old. I'm getting a bit fed up with Canon short changing us on things like this...
