    How can I use a Canon EOS Rebel XT with my Speedtron Brownline Speedotron
    D-402 Studio System?

    That's a pretty broad question, so it's not entirely clear what you're
    asking; is it because there's no PC jack on the camera? If that's what
    you're asking about, you can either use a hotshoe adapter that provides
    a PC jack (which are dirt cheap), or a radio slave unit (more expensive,
    but cooler). If the power pack has an optical slave, you could also
    put the built-in flash in manual mode and trigger it that way, possibly
    reducing the output so it doesn't contribute much to the exposure.

    Fastest/Cheapest:

    1. Set camera to manual. Set flash to manual.
    2. Tape a business card in front of the built-in-flash so it reflects
    the flash away from the scene. (eg: upward if there's a ceiling).
    3. Wein slave to the pak.

    Cheers,
    Alan.
