Hi all,

I have both Canon and Nikon cameras and would like to utilize all of my equiptment as much as I can.

The set up I'm trying to do is shoot with the D70 w/ on board speedlite and trigger the off camera SB-800 and the 420 ex. I've gotten the SB-800 to fire successfully but can't figure out how to make the 420 ex fire, or if it's even possible.

If there is anybody that has experience orknowledgewith this, you're help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks in advanced!

It's not possible!

-> the 420EX does not 'comprehend' the Nikon signal protocol...

You can't really expectCanon and Nikonto make anything compatible now can you?

When's the last time that Ford parts fit on a Chevy, or anything but another Ford?
