One way of retaining remote E-TTL when the optical triggering is unreliable, it to use a 10m extension cable - about 40 on ebay. This usually allows you to position the master unit close enough to the remote slaves for the optical system to work okay. Obviously, you have a cable hanging about...

To do it wirelessly with E-TTL, it's either Radio Poppers which you can't get over here, or Pocket Wizards that have yet to gain full user confidence. It's a brilliant system when it works though - does things that Canon can't (Hypersync etc).

Otherwise, it's full manual and the Yongnuo RF-602 is the one to get. Reliable, good range, and still only 30 a set. I've got five Wink
