I'm buying a flash for my P880. What are your thoughts on this one, and would the slave grip work with my P880 or would the flash have to slot in at the top without the grip

I think yes , it's designed for these cases (but I don't have experience with these grips)

No, that's why they call "slave flash"; in this case, the "non slave" generic flash attached to the grip make the whole ensemble the equivalent of a "slave flash".

It is a great grip, I have one of those. It includes a built-in slave sensor with many options; it lets you synchronize your external flash with the built-in flash of any camera. It is specialy designed for digital cameras,(digicams have a "pre-flash" causing malfunction on most slave adaptors).

I'm sure you'll find it useful
