No reply for my last post Well I tried to do some search and also posted on strobist.com group on flickr. I gathered the impression that Sunpak is a pretty decent and well used brand. So I have decided to go for Sunpak as my second strobe. I also checked the trigger voltages on botzilla and it looks OK to use Sunpak 383/433 on hot-shoe on Nikon gear (I hope I've deciphered all the jargon the right way). Well my concern is:

1) 383 is a generic flash but it does not have TTL detection. Does that mean I will have to buy more accesories to trigger it in slave mode? I guess I will have to set it manually in slave mode.

2) 433 has TTL detection so I think it eliminates the above problems. But I will have to chose the mount to be Nikon. In that case will I be able to use it with other camera hot-shoes too?? If I can then I would go for this one only as it is only $10 more than the 383.

I tried to look for some kind of flash compatibility chart but could not locate one. I've learned a little about flashes through the reading I've done in the past 2-3 days but I think it is not sufficient enough to make a decision. Any help in clarifying the confusion will be greatly appreciated.

Best,
Tulasi
