yes it does
it uses IR so needs line of sight
you have to configure each flash first
the one on camera set to master
and the remote one set to slave
make sure they are using the same channel

There is a reasonable chance it will work in bright light providing the IR is not facing at the sun

You're going to have very little power with shorter speeds than sync. I use 2 x 580 at half and max power always when outside on sunny days. They're reversemounted in a 60x90 cm softbox..

Are you doing action or static pictures?

Action pictures will be better using eTTL as they will adjust to light changes

Yes. It will fire the rest in HSS but optical slave's dont work very well in bright outdoors or large distances.

your mileage may vary.
