Second Flash in More Detail

The main flash is usually connected to the housing by a sync cord and positioned on the left-hand side. A second flash is then introduced in a number of ways:

• Connected to a second flash bulk head connector on the housing in the same way as the first flash.

• Connected to the housing by means of a 'T'connector or a dual cable. This dual cable connector attaches both guns directly to the camera, and it ensures that both fire at once.

• Another option is a slave flashgun, which fires when its sensor detects a burst of light from the first flash. A slave can be unreliable, and the photographer can end up positioning the two flashguns so they 'see' each other instead of positioning them in order to provide the desired quality of light on the subject.

• Connected by fibre optic cables.
