*ist D + Twin 330FTZ flash ??

Hello folks, do you think that kind of setup would be possible with two 5P cables and sockets ???? Might be very intersting for me especially for portraits and industrial pictures of hardware parts.

Any info is welcome, thanks !!!!

It should work just fine. I have tried a couple of AF400FTZ flashes before and had no technical issues, only problems with my lighting knowledge. The cables and connectors can get expensive, and your flash choice might add to that because it doesn't have a 5P socket. Here is a page with more information than you need:

Off-Camera Flash Setups

I know the AF500FTZ has a 5P socket, so you would just need 2 cables and 2 hot-shoe adapters. For the AF330FTZ you'd need 2 more hot shoe adapters at the flash end. If you don't already have the flashes, that might be a concern. Your camera manual also has some information on this.
