Sixteen0Four says:

It’s a feature of the flash. There is a photo diode that tells the flash to fire when another flash fires. That way you can sync flashes without radio triggers oder infrared.


The flash of the cheap camera goes off which sets off the expensive flash. So its the flash not the camera

diptapsp says:

How to use the flash gun with that cheap camera?

MapleKaomiii says:

it’s actually a toyota corrola.

DuckMrBrown says:

I’d love to see a Phillip Bloom’s cheap camera challenge… !!!! Please
