Does anyone know if the speedlight 420 can be used as a slave for the G3?

Thanx in advance,

John

Probably with the ST-E2 or a 550EX on the camera as the master.

I was hoping I could set up the 420 so it would fire when the internal
flash on the G3 goes off. Or do I need other equipment to do this?

The 420EX won't work this way. You'll need the ST-E2, which is a wireless
transmitter mounted on the hotshoe.
