I just read that it has a built in slave, however it says it's wireless, so you may need an optical slave, since this is pre-iTTL. You'll need to set the flash to manual.

I'd be interested to know if that works. They would work great as background lights.

EDIT: It has SU-4, so it should work in manual mode. SU-4 is an optical slave. I'm not up on SU-4, but I believe there is also an auto mode. Can anyone who has used SU-4 confirm that?
