Long-range radio triggering
The Speedlite 600EX-RT has a built-in radio trigger, providing reliable off-camera flash at distances of up to 30m, even around corners. 15 frequency channels are available, just select the one with the best reception for the location you are shooting.

Multi-flash lighting
Use up to 15 Speedlite 600EX-RT units together for dramatic multi-flash photography – perfect when shooting large objects, interiors or portraits. Flashguns may be placed in one of three groups (up to five with when using radio triggering), which can be controlled individually or all together.

E-TTL II metering
Whether you use the Speedlite 600EX-RT on camera or remotely, Canon’s E-TTL II flash metering will ensure accurate exposures every time.

Remote camera triggering
Position your EOS anywhere you like and trigger it with the Speedlite 600EX-RT from up to 30m away. Just equip the camera with a Speedlite transmitter ST-E3-RT radio trigger or a second Speedlite 600EX-RT flashgun to enjoy dramatic alternative viewpoints. Up to 15 cameras can be trigger at once for synchronised shooting.

Creative flash modes
High-speed flash sync enables the Speedlite 600EX-RT to operate at any shutter speed – perfect for fill-in flash on sunny days. Or why not try second-curtain or stroboscopic flash for special lighting effects?

Fast, powerful operation
With a guide number of 60 (ISO 100, m), the Speedlite 600EX-RT is powerful enough to light up large areas, even when light is bounced off walls and ceilings. Four AA/LR6 batteries provide silent recycling in as little as 0.1 sec.

Bounce, swivel and zoom functions
Direct the Speedlite 600EX-RT’s flash head upwards or sideways to bounce flash off ceilings or walls, for a softer approach to portrait lighting. A zoom head allows the angle of coverage to match the lens in use, maximising flash efficiency

Professional features; intuitive design
The Speedlite 600EX-RT enjoys the same degree of weatherproof sealing as Canon’s EOS-1D X professional DSLR, and a large illuminated dot matrix LCD display that provides quick and easy operation.

I took the plunge on a pair of these without too much hesitation, having been on the verge of buying a set of radio triggers for my earlier Canon flashes. They really are a revelation- gone is the hit or miss triggering in bright sunlight provided by infra red, along with the mind-boggling complexity of the 580ex II control system. 'Press that, then hold it down, then turn that'... all a thing of the past.
These flashes are elegant, durably designed, intuitive and reliable. Although I haven't had them long enough to testify to how long they stand up to prolonged wear and tear, I can say that they represent all of the good points of the Mark I and II and none of the bad.
Niggles would include the new colour filter holder only coming with two gels (one of which is almost pointless) and the lack of remote second curtain sync. A slightly more major point is that the newly designed multiple flash group system does not work with pre 2012 cameras, so unless you have a Mk III or the latest 1D you're out of luck. The old ratio controls are still there of course, but the groups are a major improvement. Shame.
Overall though, highly recommended.

I originally owned a Canon 40D with a pair of 580EX MKII's.
I had a lot of fun with these and created some great pictures with one on camera or on a short lead and one in a softbox, but they (the flash's) do have limitations when used with the built in infrared triggering.

The ones I had issues with were;
Occasional failed trigger (line of signt in a softbox doesnt always work well)
Long duration of flash (infrared commands plus ETTL, plus main flash) - models eyes start closing
Making setting changes to flash in softbox difficult - a major gripe for me when using non-ETTL setup

Appart from the above I was very happy!

I was building up to buying (or designing myself) a radio trigger system, however the overall cost for an add-on, plus the agro of setting up, additional kit, additional batteries etc. seriously put me off, particularly with reports of issues with some radio triggers combined with the 580's.

I replaced my 40D with a 5D MkIII earlier in the year and when the 600EX-RT came out I bit the bullet, sold my 580's on ebay and purchased 2x 600EX-RT's and an ST-E3-RT to go with my new 5D MKIII. My wife still has not forgiven me, but the Canon Christmas cashback offer (£105 for buying 2 600EX's plus the good price for the 580's lessened the blow).

Yes I have spent a small fortune however what a difference!

The 600EX-RT is a very powerful flash, in manual on full power it is stronger than the 580's.
There are many write ups on the new features, but here is what I noticed and liked.

-Once setup, when you switch on the flashes / St-E3 the radio links up in about 0.5 sec, then its ready to go!

It's great, simply great - so easy to change settings on it, I'm used to an older 430 II - which was good, but this is amazing - when coupled with the Trigger (or other 600 on master) it allows for much more creative lighting.

The line of sight required for the 430 remote flash basically made it useless for anything other than very carefully arranged studio type shots.

My only complaint is now I want more of them, and they're pricey!

Theres some people who have complained about the over-heating, but I can't say i've experianced this. I rarely shoot at 1/1 or on strobe mode for extended periods. If you want to shoot at 1/1 for a long time you may get hit by a forced longer recycle time, or compulsory cool down period if it continues to get hotter.

I have just taken delivery of my new flash , upgrading from a 430EXii. First impressions were as per previous reviews, that it is an awesome piece of kit.

Very well made and nice features such as the enhanced dust/ water resistance. It looks complicated but it is not and the menu system is easy to navigate round.

I had previously downloaded a copy of the manual so had an idea how it all worked before I got mine and if you are used to Speedlites it should be an easy learning curve to appreciate the full capabilities of it.

Expensive but worth every penny for Canon users.

I used 2 580exII's for a few years and bought the 600 as one of the 580's was being serviced. What an improvement! The zoom range covers 200mm which is ideal for conference photography, the recycle time is much faster and the controls are far more logical. Improving the user experience significantly. I'll definitely be buying more. . . Good job Canon.

I'm sure you've all read ooddles of reviews on these things all over the web, so I won't bore you techie stuff as I'm sure this is probably your final read before you commit to hitting the 'order' button..

Having used 430EX II's for the last few years, I was hesitant about upgrading due to what I thought would be complicated set-up menus. How wrong was I?

The menus are quite in-depth but very quick to pick up on (I don't read instruction manuals by the way..). The output of light is better suited to what I use speedlites for (outdoors and some indoor stuff with Ezybox Softboxes which, has to be said, is now a lot better)

My camera at the moment is a 60D and the weight balance when in the hot shoe is perfect. Tilt and full 360 degree flash head swivel along with a retractable light bounce card are an added bonus.

All the usual stuff you know about, output, master, slave options etc are all there plus some minor well documented downsides for pre-2012 Canon DSLR's which, to be honest, aren't enough to put most users off. 6D users will benefit the most at the moment due to the inbuilt wireless control menus in their cameras. No doubt, the forthcoming 7D mk 2 or the rumoured 70D will also benefit from such new wizardry.

To go totally wireless rather than rely on Infra red, I bought an ST-E3-RT (again, superb and is identical to the 600EX control panel) to go with it. It really has broadened my creative world so much that I bought a second 600EX-RT. My 430's aren't redundant by any means, they still form part of my flash set ups when using a 600 as a master which is an added bonus.
