I'm beginning my journey into flash photography now as i've recently purchased the new 600ex speedlight. I really like to dive in and take the flash off and move it around however the st-e3-rt seems to be out of stock everywhere and I hate paying premiums to get it now and i'm better served to wait IMO..
This brings me to my question. Has anyone had experience with off camera flash cords in the past? I recently came across these ones made by OCF http://ocfgear.com/cords-for-canon-ettl/ettl-cord-extra-long/
which are recommended in Syl Arena's Pixsylated. What I liked about them was how long they are giving me some added flexibility. Would this be a viable option for me to learn in the mean time till i'm eventually able to get the st-e3-rt transmitter and go completely wireless?
Completely different question... Has anyone had the opportunity to test out the Honl Traveller8 softbox? Seems kind of pricey but a nice setup to have. Or would you recommend any other particular diffuser like the Sto-fen?
