    Hello. I currently have a 420ex speedlite and am looking into
    purchasing a 550 so I can use the 420 as a slave.

    Anyone out there have a similar setup?? How is it??

    I realize that I cannot set anything on the 420 (it's fully
    automated), but can I control the strength of the 420's output from
    the 550?

  2. I use that setup for macro work and it works great. You can set various
    ratios between the main (550) and fill (420) flash.
