The brand new RF-603 is a remote shutter release as well as a multi-functional radio flash trigger which can synchronously trigger flashes and studio strobes. Through the transceiver based system each item can be used flexibly as trigger or receiver. Only 2 AAA batteries are required as power source for each item. The 2.4GHz wireless frequency is suitable in most countries and guarantees high speed, distance and stability. Within capacious areas, the remote control distance may reach to 100m. The synchronization speed can reach to 1/320, depending on the situation it may reach to 1/250 or less. A set consist of 2 equal transceivers. Both of them can be a receiver as well as transmitter. It can trigger 1 flash with one set, since one serves as trigger and one as receiver. You can also buy additional transceivers to trigger 2 or more flashes at the same time. Includes (2) RF-603 transeivers (1) N1 shutter release cord

I've been a long time user of the Phottix Stratos wireless flash transmitter/receivers. I use them heavily for what I do shooting with remote flashes on light stands and also occasionally use them to trigger my studio strobes. The Yongnuo RF-603 shares a very similar appearance and shares very similar functionality but they're also very different products. Below is a brief list of their similarities and differences.
Below Phottix Stratos I / II is abbreviated as PH, Yongnuo RF-603 is abbreviated as YG
Wirelessly trigger flash / studio strobes
PH: yes, YG: yes
Allows a flash to be mounted on top of the transmitter/transceiver over camera hotshoe
PH: Yes (Flash signal is passed through the unit, Manual or TTL works), YG: yes (Flash only works in Manual settings)
*this is the key difference most other reviewers mentioned, and this may or may not be critical depending on how you plan on using them. I shoot 90% of the time with my flash in manual settings, but that doesn't mean I'm happy to settle to not have the TTL option when I need it)
Functions when mounted on camera hotshoe
PH: yes, YG: yes
Use as wired remote camera trigger with supplied cable
PH: yes, YG: yes
Use as wireless remote camera trigger with supplied cable
PH: yes, YG: yes
Use AAA batteries
PH: yes, YG: yes
Offers different channels:
PH: yes with button on the unit, YG: yes with dip switch inside the battery compartment
*** This is basically where the similarities end. Let's examine the additional features the Phottix offer that the Yongnuo does not:
Lockable when mounted on hotshoe:
PH: yes, YG: NO (this is a huge oversight in my opinion, I wouldn't leave the YG on my hotshoe with a flash mounted on top for sure)
User selectable groups within channels:
PH: yes, only in Stratos II, YG: NO
Ability to fire multiple channels:
PH: user selectable channel 1 to 4, or fire 1 to 4 simultaneously in Stratos I, user selectable groups within the same channel in Stratos II; YG: NO
Flash can be fired remotely with transmitter (without using the camera)
PH: yes, YG: NO (this comes as a surprise to me... the button in the YG only works in camera remote mode, not using to send signal to fire flash)
PH: no (transmitter OR receiver), YG: yes (YG RF-603 is a transceiver, so they're identical)
PC sync port:
PH: NO, YG: yes (cable not included)
In conclusion, you get what you pay for, and in this case I think we can all agree that the RF-603 is a steal. The only thing you need to be aware of is that you cannot use TTL over the YG when mounted on the camera hotshoe, and that the RF-603 doesn't have a lock so be very cautious when you mount a flash on top of it over the camera hotshoe. Hope this helps clear things up!
These triggers are very capable for their price point. The fact that they add one additional feature above their competition at the same price point is a big draw for me. Not only can they trigger just about any flash (Not the SB-400) you have and do it at sync speeds exceeding 1/250s is pretty good, add the ability to trigger the camera using the same transceiver, you've got a great little package.
As far as I know this is the only trigger out there that allows you to both trigger the shutter as well as pop flashes at this price point. There are plenty of other triggers that allow you to do either or, but none that do both for just about $30. If you really need TTL, you're going to spend at least triple the money on a single transceiver, let alone a pair like this.
Now to the guts:
1. Decent build quality, it doesn't feel like it will fall apart in my hand like the Cowboy studio triggers I once used. I have no problem letting them get smooshed and bounced around in my bag.
2. Two position shutter release allows for focusing your shot prior to taking it, a modest feature, but an important one. not everyone triggering remotely can switch to manual focus and leave it at that, some people want the camera to do the work while they sit back and pull the trigger, remotely.
1. No ability to lock on to the hot shoe you put it in. If you put this ontop of your camera and for some reason put a flash into the trigger, your flash is not locked in the body's hot shoe at this point. The fix? Put the flash on the body (now you have TTL! WOW!) and let the trigger dangle from its shutter release cord.
2. No standard 1/4" threaded hole on the bottom of the transceiver to allow for mounting to a separate tripod or light stand, now I have to buy one of those cheeky speedlight/flash/stand/tripod holder adapter thingies. Boo.
Overall, I would highly recommend this trigger system to anyone and everyone looking to either get their flash off camera or trigger their camera remotely. If you aren't already flashing from off camera, you need to. And if you are flashing from off camera without these triggers, you need replace what you have with these. (unless you already have those pricey iTTL triggers that cost you a fortune, in which case, you wouldn't have read this far anyway!)
I can't think of any other photo tech out there that can add so much to your tool bag for the same money.
I think it is a nice feature that (with the enclosed cable) I can trigger my CAMERA with the other transmitter. I dont know when I would place my camera somewhere that I needed to use the remote trigger option, but it is a nice feature.
I wish they had a screw hole to attach them to my light stands instead of just a hot shoe connection. I can use the flash holder that came with my flashes as a workaround.
I wish there was a locking mechanism to keep it securely mounted to my camera or flash holder when used off camera.
I was doing some testing last week and recall I could only get 1/160th shutter speeds from my flash using these. (D90 user)
If I get more into off-camera flash photography, I would order remotes that let me get at least 1/200th or faster.
I gave it less than 5 stars due to the limitations I listed. I would give it a 3 1/2 stars.
I do not regret the purchase as they work well enough for my current (and many others) use.
My only issue is that one of the battery covers doesn't fit on the device properly. Even
when there are no batteries it doesn't connect right. So I had to tape it on to keep it shut.
Not a deal breaker since they still work and for the price I paid, I will live with it. But only
