Got my tax returns finally!!! Yay, I have my money back, interest free So I have a 430EXII. I want to have a 2 flash off camera system. I almost got a two strobe alien bees system, but decided to wait and think it over. I am now ready to order the following today, pending you guys wise insight/approval -a 580EXII to use as my main light, to be used in conjunction with the 430 as fill/background/hair/whatever. Any disadvantages to using this? I am very familiar with this flash already. For control, I am torn between radio poppers and cyber syncs. For a beginner in off-camera lighting looking to keep his future doors open, what would be the best bang-for-the-buck? -RadioPopper JrX Transmitter for $80 VS -Cyber Sync CST for $60 I am new to this, and fail to understand the differences between the two. For the CyberSync I would need two receivers at $90 a pop. For the Poppers I would get the two basic receivers at $80 a pop. Will both of these be able to work with both of my off camera flashes ETTL? As far as stands go, does anyone see any disadvantages to using this kit from amazon? http://www.amazon.com/CowboyStudio-...ie=UTF8&s=miscellaneous&qid=1268331916&sr=8-3 It covers two stands, mounting feet, and umbrella sets for pretty cheap.

Thanks all EDIT: Changed my mind again. I just ordered the lighht stands, umbrellas, and reflector kit, but now I am thinking that I may as wells order 2x more 430EXII's for just a bit more than 1 580EXII. I do not need the master function of the 580, as I will be using radio transmitters... I also do not think that I need the extra reach and power of the 580, as I would benefit more from using multiple flashes in the long run. I will be shooting skateboarding outside, outdoor portraits, some studio portraits, ie: No covering events in huge rooms, etc. Thoughts?
