    Is it possible to use a Canon 550EX or 420EX flashgun wirelessly with a
    studio brolly.

    For example, firstly do they operate wirelessly from a 20D like the Minolta
    Flashguns, and secondly, if they were facing into the brolly, would this
    confuse the infra-red focus assist?

    You can with the 550EX, I don't know about the 420EX. You would need
    either the wireless transmitter, or a radio transmitter.

    You should be able to focus with out the assist, I never used it.

    I have a 550EX and have used it with the ST-E2 wireless transmitter in a
    similar setup to what you describe.

    All works fine.
