I think I may have posted some wrong information on another site. So I'm going to ask here for some clarification.

Using the new dSLR's with the SB800 or SB600, how does the master speedlight communicate with the remote/slave speedlights?

I've seen it posted that it's a series of low light pulses from the master that the remotes need to see.

I thought a while back I read that it was done through IR.

Is it an IR trasmission or not?
