Much too high. Yes, remote slave triggers are the way to go. Cheap little one-inch cubes are maybe ten bucks on eBay. Put the cube on a tripod or camera bracket or whatever. Mount the flash on it. Raise your on-camera flash. When you snap the shutter, the on-camera flash triggers the remote flash. No fried electronics. No bricked camera. Glorioski!
I saw a SYK-3 Remote Slave Trigger on ebay

Do you think this will fit my Vivitar?

I just switched over from a K100D Super to the K-r. I actually noticed that my manual lenses don't meter. They work, but I don't get the +/- EV scale in my viewfinder like I usually do in Manual mode. Sure, I can press the Green button to stop down and measure, and I get a good expose, but there doesn't seem to be any realtime metering like on my K100D. Am I doing something wrong?
