New wireless multiple flash system using radio wave communication for enhanced control of up to five groups of flashes.

The Speedlite 600EX-RT represents the next generation in wireless flash systems. In addition to traditional optical wireless Canon Speedlite 600EX on body at Amazon.comtransmission, the Speedlite 600EX-RT facilitates radio controlled, two-way wireless transmission up to 98.4 feet, among up to 5 groups with a total of 15 individual Speedlites. Communicating on 2.4 GHz frequencies, the Speedlite 600EX-RT does not have the same directional limitations of traditional wireless optical transmitters. Where other wireless signals can be interrupted by physical obstacles, radio controlled systems excel. 15 transmission channels are available, selectable manually or automatically, and radio transmission IDs can be set to prevent misfiring in the event of signal interference on the same channel. 

Zoom flash head covers wide range of 20–200mm; maximum Guide Number (197 ft./60m at ISO 100).

For effective flash photography in more situations than previously possible with a Speedlite flash, the Speedlite 600EX-RT has an improved guide number of 197ft. (60m) at ISO 100. It offers 20mm to 200mm coverage, and when the extendable wide panel is pulled out, flash coverage moves as wide at 14mm. Plus, to maximize power and minimize energy consumption, the Speedlite 600EX-RT can be directed to zoom in accordance with the cameras image sensor size (full-frame, APS-H and APS-C).

Redesigned contact construction, improved flash head durability, and exceptional dust and weather resistance for reliable operation.

The Speedlite 600EX-RT is the most rugged, durable and reliable Speedlite in the Canon arsenal with construction on par with high-end Canon DSLRs. The flash head is more rugged and durable than its predecessor and a redesigned hot shoe contact ensures seamless communication. Dust and water resistance has been improved significantly as well: all moving parts and areas surrounding the flashes display and buttons are sealed for uninterrupted performance in harsh conditions. A new dust and water resistant adapter for the mounting foot creates a dust and water resistant seal between camera and flash.

I sold all of my previous flashes and bought these. Previous flashes include Canon's 580exII, 580ex, and 430exII.

The Good:

First off, if you're a Strobist or an off-camera speedlighter, sell everything you own and get these. The RF signaling system and fully independent group controls right from your master device will change everything for you. Already using RadioPoppers or a PocketWizard FlexTT system? Welcome to a new world of reliability, simple setup, and battery life.

Going into "Gr" mode on the master flash, I can independently tell up to five different groups to operate in full eTTL mode (plus adjust each group's FEC) OR shift one, some, or all groups into M mode with full power controls on each group. I do this right from the flash itself, or from the screen on my 5d mark III.

Shooting a party with dancing? Want to have eTTL on-camera to bounce, and an off-camera light in the background on M for a little dramatic rim-lighting? No problem. All easily configured right from your camera.

Working outdoors at night with nothing to bounce off of? No problem. Tell the master unit on your camera not to flash, and it will simply operate as a master controller for the off-camera units. (If you often need a master controller with no flash, a Canon ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter might save you a bit of money. )

If you get lost in the menus, use the configuration screen on your camera instead. I find this much easier to navigate, set modes, etc.

This is too expensive, you say?

This is a great move for Canon. I know people are saying its too pricey and they could get full studio lights for this price. True, but not the same thing. I shoot both Canon and Nikon and this is an are where Nikon has always blown Canon away. Their flash system's wireless ability made me green with envy. I have been using Pocket Wizard mini and flex units and they work well. However, no need for them anymore. These work flawlessly so far. I bought 3 of them and will buy the ST-E3 when it comes out. I played wiht them tonight and the wireless communication is perfect. Some really cool features are built in. When you put one in slave mode, its screen turns orange and the master flash is green. Easy to tell which is which. You can configure the colors. Custom functions are now illustrated on the screen so no need to have the manual around to figure out what to do. The flash head is a little larger thean tthe 580EXII but the overall flash is almost exactly the same size. If you use an Omni Bounce, you will need to wait for a new version to fit this one. It does come with a gel holder and CTO gell. Nice touch. I will do some more shooting tomorrow, but my initial tests tonight make me a very happy reviewer. Nikon flash just moved to 2nd place. Radio is the way to go. :)

I purchased 3 of these flashes from Amazon and plan on adding a fourth soon. I also have a pre-order placed for the Canon ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter which I hope to receive sooner rather than later. The radio's on these flashes are awesome and the menu system is also greatly improved. One of my favorite features is the ability to use a master flash or the ST-E3-RT to control each of my flashes. The group mode is great, but can only be used with 2012 or newer Canon Cameras such as the Canon 5D MKIII which I also own. I tested the group mode on my Canon 5D MKII and it definetly does not work with that camera.

With the group mode you can have up to 5 groups total and set the power levels using either ETTL or Manual mode. I use a label maker and mark my flashes as A B C (and future will be D for the fourth flash). I still have one group left if I want to go to five flashes. If you have more than 5 flashes you can assign multiple flashes to the same group and their power settings will be the same. Using the Master you can easily switch the slaves remotely from either ETTL or Manual mode and set their power settings. When you turn on the flashes they come up quickly and link up before you are ready to shoot - mere seconds. I was really impressed with how the radios worked and it's so nice to have just one set of batteries and not have to hook up a bunch of external gear. These are a huge time saver.

One thing I will mention to those who may want to mix these with Studio Flashes. You can fire these from remote triggers just like the older Canon models as they have a PC input port.

After shooting with three Canon 580EXII flashes and three Pocket Wizard TT5 triggers and a Pocket Wizard AC3 Zone Controller, I was so frustrated by the complete lack of consistent flash-firing that I sold all that stuff and bought three of the Canon 600EX-RT flashes. I use a 5D3 so compatibility isn't an issue. What is an issue is the overheating of the 600EX-RT. Even when I use brand-new batteries, and an external battery pack for my on-camera flash, the on-camera flash hits the 10-second recycle shutdown after only a few flashes. This happened to me last month at a wedding and I didn't know what was going on. I changed all the batteries, thinking that was the issue, but it happened again. I turned off my off-camera flashes, set my on-camera flash back to its regular settings (not acting as a transmitter), and everything worked great...except the fact that I couldn't use the other two flashes at all, the ones I'd just paid $1200 for. This happened the rest of the day and it was extremely frustrating.
This has only happened in full sunlight, when I'm using one or more of my flashes at full power. I understand that I cannot shoot them at full power for extended periods of time, but I'd literally only shot two frames before the 10-second recycle kicked in (and, hence, no working flash at all until those 10 seconds had elapsed). Setting my Custom Functions so my flashes will still fire even when not fully re-charged is pointless; I set all my exposures just the way I want them...firing at anything less (or more) than I intended will create a bad looking image. As a professional photographer I expect professional results from Canon's top-of-the-line speedlight.
