Help please with High speed flash and slave


Grampy 5 507 71 England

Hi everyone,

I'm trying without any luck to, I have a Canon 580 EXII that is set on high speed flash plus a Yongnuo 568EXII also set on high speed flash.
Does anyone know with them set on high speed, if one can slave from the other. I'm going around in circles trying to do it.

I'm using a ECO3 Cable from the camera that fires either one on high speed, when I set the other one to slave it turns off the high speed flash, I don't have a pocket wizard set up and am desperately trying to avoid buying them, even so I'm not sure they would do the job. The shutter speed is 8000th and works fine on the flash connected too the camera

Any help would be very welcome.
