with the right hardware, to make them sync, it is possible to fire my 430ez as a slave and a 580ex as a master correct?

Sorry if its a dumb question, never really got into shooting with light off the camera. :hs:

580ex as master and 430ex as slave.

580 on cameras to trigger 430

or

STE2 infraded Canon POS on camera to trigger 580 off camera and 430 ex off camera

or both off camera and some kind of RF trigger (pocet wizards, cybersyncs, radio poppers, cactus wizards) to trigger

the EZ flashes will only work in full manual and will need something to trigger them off camera, like a cord, poverty wizards, optical slave etc. they can not be fired directly by a 550/580ex.
