I'm going to try simply pointing the red window at the camera and see how that works out.
This works - mission accomplished.

Looks good, though probably a bit too pricy for my casual intentions, especially since I'd have to pay EU taxes, etc.

Thanks anyway.
Yeah that is your best option. You can use multiple flashes and I find the K3 is reliable with wireless flash using the AF540 as long as the red lens is facing the camera.
