Answer:
Yes and No. It will work IF you purchase separate sync ports for your speedlights. I know the 430 does not have a pc port and am pretty sure the 580 does not either. all you need to do is go to flashzebra or call them up and they can set you up with them. they are around $15 but will allow you to use the pocket wizards… see more Yes and No. It will work IF you purchase separate sync ports for your speedlights.

Another important question is do you want to adjust your flash power by your camera or do you want to do it manually? Pocket wizard offers a ttl trigger for speedlights. The PWIII trigger you are asking about is a "dumb" trigger as it will only trigger your flashes and you will not be able to adjust the power or use your ttl functions with it.
If you just want a trigger to fire your flashes I would recommend you save some money and get the new pocket wizard Plus X triggers. they are $99 vs $140. If you want to control the power of your flashes and or use the ttl functions I would recommend the Pocket Wizard Mini TT1 and Flex TT5 systems. you can read about each of these on the pocket wizard website. see less

Answer:
In my experience, the main advantages of the PW+3, are the easy access buttons to change channels and zones. Also, it seems to be a more robust product. And, the PW+3, has much more universal usage, in the sense that it is not dedicated to a particular camera brand or system.

Answer:
Yes you'll need 5 pocket wizards in order to get them work or,.... a cheaper way is, if you're studio lites have cell ( in which they go off with other flashes firing at the same time) you can use 2 pocket wizards one for transceiver and one for receiver.

Answer:
It's as simple as holding the transmitter in your hand and plugging in the receiver to the camera (while it's on a tripod). I'm not sure if you can even just put it on the hot shoe but you can search that on the internet for video tips.

Answer:
You would need two. One to act as a transmitter and one as the receiver. The unit can act as either one but not as both at the same time of course. Make sure you get the correct flash sync cable for your flash. http://www.pocketwizard.com/products/cable_accessory/flash_sync_cables/

Answer:
Yes you will but you might be able to get by with less if your speedlights have optical triggers and can see each other. This way if one goes off the rest will see the flash of light and go off as well.

This way if one goes off the rest will see the flash of light and go off as well. This has its disadvantages but if you can not afford 5 at once this will work especially if you are in a studio environment. Outdoors or long distances might pose issues. I would save up until you get 5 of them especially if you will be using these on paid gigs. see less Yes you will but you might be able to get by with less if your speedlights have optical triggers and can see each other.

Answer:
Yes. The Plus III is for triggering only. If you want to change flash output power wirelessly you need something like the PocketWizard FlexTT5 with AC3 Zone Controller (for Nikon and Canon only).
