TTL Slave Flash, corded on bracket?

    This is a slave flash newbie question, and if it is answered in a faq
    or primer I'd be grateful for any links to them.

    I'd like to be able to use smaller aperatures with slow film while
    using TTL bounce flash, possibly with a Stofen diffuser. Ideally, I'd
    like to mount a second flash on a simple bracket, link the two flashes
    with a short cord, and have the second flash both fire and stop when
    the primary flash (either in TTL mode, or in one of its auto modes)
    fires and stops.

    I like some of the brackets I see at

    http://www.camerastore.com/dl_cat_E/-E07_flashbrk.html

    Especially the top 3 (not sure which of them I'd need), and the
    DL-0308, which has a handle.

    I'd mostly be using it on a Pentax Super Program, and possibly
    sometimes with a Pentax KX (in the flash's auto mode, since the KX
    doesn't do TTL flash).

    Is this possible? Practical? Where do I need to go from here to figure
    out what I need?


    Many Thanks,

    Greg

    my advice would be to use manual flash guns with s a set guide number each
    with a slave firing unit. set the on camera to manual. Beg borrow or steal
    a flash meter or bracket like mad.
