You get what you pay for. The Metz I mentioned above (34-CS2 Digital) has a guide number of 112 feet or 34 meters...but the Metz is ~$130 (but well worth it, at least to me). As I wrote above it is preflash compatible (it has a switch whether to fire on the first or second flash). The best way to test a slave to see if it works with your camera is to put it down and see if it fires:

thank you
If you have the Kodak DX3600 -- it pre-flashes. I used to own one, and it does pre-flash. The best way to see it is to take a picture with your hand about an inch from the flash and watch your hand -- the pre-flash is literally a fraction of a second before the final flash. I'm not telling you this to start a heated debate or anything; I just want to make sure you end up with the right type of slave flash/trigger or you will be disappointed when it doesn't work.
