Hi all - As a follow up to my flash question a few days ago, I am now buying some accessories for my new 580EXII flash unit. My first question is opinions on my gear I am thinking of buying (use would be for portraits, mostly indoor, some outdoor) - I figured an inexpensive stand, a 33 inch shoot through umbrella, and the hotshoe adapter/umbrella holder. See links - any tips? ie does the stand look decent, do I want a shoot through vs reflective umbrella, etc? http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/262758-REG/Impact_LS_6B_Light_Stand_Black_.html http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/362385-REG/Impact_S3233_White_Translucent_Umbrella_33_.html http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/298709-REG/Impact_3117_Umbrella_Bracket.html My second question is on the cord. I am going to do Pocket Wizards later, but for cost reasons and wanting to get going immediately, I am going to use a cord for now. I do want to retain TTL though, so from what I have read I need to use the type that hooks onto the hotshoe correct? The (is it called) "PC" sync port will not retain TTL right? If not, then my question becomes where can I find a long/cheap TTL cord? Most seem to only be a couple feet long and pretty expensive? Ideally I would have at least 10-15 feet, and I was hoping this wasn't going to be more that $20-30 tops but I may be way off base. Also, if using the hotshoe type cord, is the hotshoe stand adapter the correct type? Thanks in advance for the help! Sorry for the 20 questions!
