    I was wondering if it was possible to use a sony HVL to trigger a canon flash?

    I'm already using Photix Odin to trigger the HVL, so I'm not looking to radio trigger, just optical with the HVL and canon.

    If the remote flash supports servo mode, even the internal flash in any camera can trigger it. So yes, it works. However, in bright sunlight outdoors, it's not very reliable, so I'd use radio triggers there.
