I was wondering if it is possible to trigger the SB-800 (or another Speedlight) remotely in broad daylight using the D70?

With a sync speed of 1/500 there is some great possibilities for fill in flash, if this is possible

However, using a Canon S45 I have made a few experiments using a slave trigger on the SB-28, works great indoors and at night, but when there is too much natural light, I can't trigger the SB-28 using the slave.

I guess I'm hoping that another technology is used in the wireless communication between a D70 and a SB-800...
