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.

This is an affordable solution for those of you looking to trigger your camera remotely using a radio transmitter or fire off strobes, speedlights and/or flashes with a wireless transmitter.
This units a transceivers, which means they can act as transmitter or receiver.
One thing to keep in mind. I have tested this using a Nikon D7000 and a Nikon D90. I tested each camera independently with the following speedlights: Nikon SB-700, SB-800, SB-900. The speedlights fired every time. I also fired the camera remotely using the same setup.
I put one on the hot-shoe in the camera and another in the speedlight as normal. The funny thing is that if you connect the supplied wire from the camera to the transceiver when you press the shutter in the camera it fires the speedlight and vice versa. When you press the test button in the transceiver attached to the speedlight it fires the camera and the speedlight, you can't ask for more on this price range.
This setup is not TTL. You have no wireless control about the speedlight power from the camera. You have to set your speedlight to manual mode and adjust the power setting to whatever you need. This will fire the speedlight in sync to the highest sync speed of your camera. In the Nikon D7000 is 1/250, faster than that and you will get the expected black bar on the bottom of the frame if you are framed horizontally. That also means, of course, that it doesn't support FP High Speed Sync. All things I can live with because when I need one I typically don't need the other. I am still using the Nikon CLS but its nice to have this kind of range and capability if you need it for this price.
If you absolutely need this feature, go see Pocket Wizard they have your solution for $219-$199 a pop.
I got six of this puppies for all my speedlights and both my cameras. You can't beat it for the price.
If you are contemplating the possibility of buying one, go right ahead, you won't feel bad about it.
This is an awesome price for these capabilities. You have a PC connection and that gives you extra flexibility in case you want to hook them up to a strobe.
April 27, 2012 Update.
Hello all, this is an update to add a few things. These transceivers are still working great.
I have purchased the more advanced Pocket Wizard Flex TT5 flash triggers to my bag-o-tricks. I purchased three of them for now. I am not writing this here to brag but to tell you how you can still use these Yongnuo RF-603's along with the PW stuff.
**Why in the world would he want to do that? I know right, crazy talk? Keep reading!**
The PW Flex TT5 system has a drawback that has been well identified through out the several training videos in their website and others. The Flex system is not able to trigger the camera remotely while maintaining TTL communication between camera and flashes faster than one frame every two seconds. That may not be a problem for most people but I always try to work around tech problems even if they don't affect me now that way I have an answer for when it bites me in the future.
The way I did it was assembling the PW with camera and flashes as PW recommends and then when all of that was done and all gizmos were talking to each other I proceeded to hook up the Yongnuo receiver to the camera via the GPS port as usual. I left it dangling from the camera and used another Yongnuo transceiver to trigger. It worked flawlessly. It was triggering as fast as I wanted with no noticeable delays. Notice that I never hooked up the Yongnuo gear with the PW gear. They only way the Yongnuo transceiver is hooked up to the camera is by the N3 cable as recommended by Yongnuo. This way you have radio TTL remote flash triggering along with radio camera triggering.
Anyone worried about RF interference? Its a valid concern. I looked at both operating frequencies and the PW (FCC- USA Version) operates between 340-354 MHz, the Yongnuo RF-603 operates at 2.4 GHz. The amount of space in the RF spectrum is so far apart that unless the devices are physically touching each other, there should not be any interference or frequency drift. (This is my opinion and experience, this information has not been professionally tested in a lab under controlled conditons).
Benefits from this setup:
-Mainly, NO delay between shutter press and camera triggering.
-Radio triggering on both systems, no line of sight issues.
-You leave camera in tripod and flashes in light stands and keep your Yongnuo trigger in your hand while working in a studio or on location. It also means that you don't have to buy an expensive PW radio to just trigger your camera.
-If you drop your Yongnuo trigger and it breaks is about $37 for a pair as opposed to $200 or so for a PW Flex.
I tried this setup with a Nikon D700 and Nikon D7000 along side my speed lights: SB-700, SB-800 and SB-900. I also own Yongnuo YN-560 flashes (about $65 each) and I use them as kickers and trigger them with the built in optical slave. Yes, while all the Nikon flashes fire in TTL. The Yongnuo flashes have two modes for optical (main flash, and M2 where the flash ignores the TTL pre-flash).
Now, this is what I call harmony across my entire camera bag. I don't like bickering inside the camera bag while I sleep at night.
Jan 8, 2013 Update.
Works with the Nikon D600 too.
Range is as advertised. I can trigger flashes that are not in line of sight. I use these only when CLS infrared would be an issue. Otherwise I keep these as backup and use my su-800.
Lastly, these function as a remote trigger on my d7000. I already have the dedicated Nikon remote, but that only works with line of sight and close range and it has trouble focusing unless I set the camera to auto continuous focus mode. If I forget, the the pictures are all out of focus. And with the dedicated remote, I have to move the shutter mode to remote. Using these yongnuo triggers as a remote, all those limitations disappear. I can use it with all camera settings from any angle. Focus is perfect and I don't have to switch camera settings before and after I use the remote. By the way, they still fire your flashes while using as a remote.
I purchased 2 sets. I can use 3 flashes or if I need to be in the picture, I use 2 flashes and I use the 4th receiver to trigger the shutter. I love the simplicity. They all can be used as a receiver or transmitter. That's great.
I use mine with rechargeable aaa batteries with no problems.
On the negative side, these don't lock on the light stands or the camera. It is a nice fit, so the one on the camera does not really need a lock. But I would feel better if these locked when using them on light stands. If the umbrella is facing down, you need to use a flash mount that locks the flash in place. I use the flash stands that came with the flashes so I noticed this as a potential issue although my flashes did not slip yet...
I recommend these if you are looking for a simple wireless solution. I hope this helps.
