Flash trigger

Hi everybody! I just bought the Youngnuo585EX and I am trying to find the flah trigger (AF-360GZ - AF540FGZ) or any other that will work with the youngnuo 585. Could anyone advice me which and where to buy it. I am based in London. Thanks!!!

With this flash you can actually use a built in flash (if your camera has one).

The Pentax AF-360/540 FGZ models are not triggers but are flash units themselves. They will trigger your youngnuo 585 using wireless optical , as will a Pentax built in flash.

There is an actual flash trigger made for your Youngnuo which consists of two parts. One goes on the hotshoe of the camera and the other couples to your flash to allow it to operate off-camera. It's pretty low priced on ebay.

This really isn't a "slave" trigger since it replaces the flash on the camera with a sender unit compatible to the receiver which "triggers" the actual Youngnuo flash.
