Hi everyone, not sure if anyone would know the answer to this or not, but I finally ended up getting the stop shot system from cosignys or however you spell it. I can now set my 2 flashes along side my waterdrop dish and when I hit the control button, my drop will drip and my 2 flashes will go off. I have to set them manually, but I don't need my pop up flash to set them off, the controller does that for me,,,,(a long way from my baggie right?) Well, I haven't been utilizing all this stop shot can do because I have just, since I got it, been using my commander mode on my camera to set off my flashes. So now, I'm thinking I need to start using this machine the way it was intended to get my $$$$$$ worth out of it.. Here is my question. I would like to get another flash to possible either hang it up above my waterdrop splash or even put it behind the dish where it splashes. Now if I have the controller controlling the first two, do I understand correctly that my pop up flash or commander mode should set off the 3rd flash.? Am I making this too complicated to understand..sorry if I am. My main question I guess is this, I have sb700 and the sb600, if I opted not to use the controller and just wanted to use commander mode for the 2, which should I buy for the 3rd flash?
Now, I'm confused,,,too...Bottom line, I want a third flash,,,what would be a good one to get? I don't want to go the expensive route because I use the 700 for mostly every other thing I do, but I don't know if it would set off 2 600"s...
