I have a Canon S3is with its hopelessly inadequate inbuilt flas. I also have an old Metz 45CT1 from my film days. Fantastic flash (GN 45 in metres at 100ASA)
Is it feasible to use this with a slave trigger on my S3? If so, what sort of trigger do I need?

use the grip to attach the camera and flash
get yourself a Nissin Syncro-eye slave unit, and a sync chord
Syncro-Eye are around second hand, $10 is about the asking

there are other brands that do the same thing, dont pay a lot

attach the sync chord to the Metz, and the syncho-eye on the other end
when the syncro-eye sees the speedlight of a flash it will trigger the Metz
the Metz should have an AUTO mode to help control it, and it will bounce. You can also use manual mode, but this will need to be applied to the camera too, so I hope your camera has manual mode because it will make it easier.
