5.0 out of 5 stars Work great., September 29, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered three pairs of these from Amazon. After unwrapping them and installing two AAA batteries in each of them, was snapping pictures within minutes using my 7D and four flashes in manual mode:

Two YN-560's
One Canon 430EX
One Canon 580EX II

That left one RF-603 unit free to use as an off-camera shutter release. A much better solution (in my opinion) than the Canon RC1 infrared shutter release that I also own. There were no configuration issues, simply put batteries in them, plug them into the speedlights, and they work. I love it when stuff just works.

The lack of a securing pin on the RF-603 to a hot-shoe is not an issue for me. The unit stays secure on my camera through spring-compression of the contacts. The 603's stay secured to my light stands through the stand's clamps, and each of my speedlights have a clamp that keep them secured to the top of the RF-603 units.

I also do not have an issue with the dip-switches being in the battery compartment. With the dip-switches in the battery compartment, they won't get accidentally moved around.

The only issue I have with them is that I have to remove the speedlight from each of the RF-603 units to turn the units on and off. A minor annoyance, but a power switch on the side would be easier.

My rating is because they work as they're supposed to and is not based on what I wished they did. A great value!

All the Yongnuo's work with my Canons and Canon 580EX. I use 603's and 602's with my 5D MkII's, 7D's, 1D MkIII and IV. They can't be beat for they money.

How well does the shutter work? If I do long bulb exposures, say 3hrs, does it have a lock or would make me hold the button?

I use a key or a pen to turn the units on or when the switch in inaccesible. Other than that these things are fantastic.
