If you got budget, PocketWizards are the best.

Otherwise the Cactus V4's (Poverty Wizards) work really well too. Super cheap.

I got a 580 EXII for Christmas. Haven't taken a picture of it though, haha.

Now I need to find a way to trigger both my Vivitar 285HVs and the 580EXII. Any ideas?

To add to what I said earlier, the Cactus V4's slot to the bottom of the hot-shoe mount on the flashes. So there is no need for sync cables. So all you need is 1 trigger & x-recievers.

To give you an idea, I've triggered 8 lights with the Cactus triggers. Thats a combo of Vivatars, Speedlights & Elinchroms.

I have both & they pretty even as far as power goes. The 430 however is a much better build, faster recycling time, more tech. Vivatars are raw light. 430 is slightly more manageable. That being said, the price difference between them still make the Vivatars so valuable for cost.
