Wireless Multiple Flash-unit Photography

As a basic guide, the effective distance between the master and remote flash

units is approx. 10 m (33 ft) or less in the front position, and approx. 7 m
(23 ft) at both sides (in Advanced Wireless Lighting). These ranges vary slightly
depending on ambient light.
There is no limit to the number of remote flash units that can be used together.

However, when using many remote flash units, light may be unintentionally
picked up by the light sensor of the master flash unit and interfere with correct
functioning. The practical number of remote flash units for wireless multiple
flash-unit photography is three. In Advanced Wireless Lighting, for practical
purposes, the number of remote flash units should be limited to three for one
Place all remote flash units in the same group close together and facing the same
