OK.. I have been lucky enough to be given for Xmas a 580ex, 420ex and have on order a 550ex ... did not know I was getting the first two.
Anyway, rather than sell the extra two flashes, what do I need to make use of them as a portable 3 light setup? Will the built-in wireless of the 580ex trigger the 420ex and 550ex remotely? Do I need to get a dedicated wireless kit to make it possible? Would anyone with experince in using Canon Spedlites care to help? Cheers

Yes, both the 580 and the 550 will trigger the other speedlights.

Have fun !
