I picked up a pair of SP studio 300 watt strobes and been firing them off by the onboard flash on my D80. I want to try just using the strobes and not the flash on my camera. The mono lights come with a pc connection cable but my understanding is the D80 does not have a "pc" connection like the higher model D200. I have talked to camera shops like Ritz camera and they say i would have to buy expensive equiptment to trigger the monolight? Any economical suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Here are the lights i got. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=Search&A=details&Q=&sku=129711&is=REG&addedTroughType=search

The Wein safe sync worked...I have flash! Thanks for everyone's help. Funny how multiple people working in camera stores told me i could trigger my strobes with my onboard flash but also couldnt tell me what was wrong when they did not work. Live and learn. Now I need backdrops, I hope this part of my learning does not make me pull hairout, waste money and have me googleing answers to all hours of the morning.
