    Hi all,
    I have a Fuji S1000FD and I'm looking for a slave unit and a flash to light up an area.
    Heres the specs
    This camera has no hot shoe, so it will be hard to attach a slave unit to it.
    Just wandering if anyone had any solutions to it, as i want to get a couple of other flashes going off at different locations at the same time.
    Thanks for your help

    You could use an optical flash trigger

    Attach this to a stand and then the flash unit to the hotshoe on the trigger.

    You can then trigger the flash unit from the camera's on board flash.

    Just curious: what else do you think you can use as slave?

    No, the optical unit and your on board flash does what the item on your link does. You would just need the slave flash.

    you could try a pentax slave flash link

    very cheap - not sure if it will have enough power for what you want

    All though this is a simple set up, it can become an involved set up. Using the onboard flash you will get a minimum of 2 flashes, firing the slave on the first flash. I have a Casio compact that fires 3 flashes, so that had to be worked on.
