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.
So i would need to buy a flash gun also?
Also what is the range on those things?
Would this be any good?

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.
Ah, i'm really confused now.

How do you mean?
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.
