Here's what I want to do. Use my Q-flash as the main flash, with three SB-800s providing the fill, back, hair and background and other subsidiary light.

I'm cheap. I understand there are some very nice expensive tools to put the SB-800's on the Q-flash frequencies (and vice-versa).

I'm going to run each of the SB-800s in manual mode (turned down to 1/16th power or lower), each triggered its own Wein "Peanut" slave, plugged into PC female end of a PC extension cable. That cable plugged into an SB-800 sync input.

Will this work?

Thanks for any replies.
