    Excellent flash! I have a bit of a learning curve trying to figure out all the bells and whistles and settings but from what I can tell so far I can't believe I am very happy with my purchase. I also bought the trigger that goes with it.

    Comments about Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Essential Accessory Kit:

    If you can afford to buy a high end flash like this one, it's definitely worth the investment. This bundle is a great deal since you get a rechargeable battery and diffuser for very cheap price.
    It may look intimidating but it's easy to use as long as you know the very basics. Great auto feature so even if you don't know anything about flash and how it works you can just mount it, put it on auto and it's ready to go.
    I recommend if you have a Cannon camera stick with Cannon flashes.

      This is my second purchase of this item. It works great. I do recommend the rechargeable batteries as it does suck the life out them quickly! The flash will stop working consistently when the batteries are about to die. So have your backups ready if you are at an event.

            It's a definite good deal. The Speedlight is expensive but it comes with a lot of features one being the remote radio transceiver / receiver it also works with line of site I'm still trying to figure what out. Overall The Speedlight is a big improvement from the 580. And the bundle comes with batteries, charger and a bounce dome diffuser as well. So for the price you can't beat.

            Comments about Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Essential Accessory Kit:

            I just bought 2 of these to take advantage of the new wireless radio technology. Just stellar results. In the past you could never trust the infrared triggering and had to use a pocket wizard to trigger multiple off camera flashes so I never really invested in them. The new wireless system is a game changer for me while shooting event. The Flash is built well, solid, and the panel is easy to use. @ the other review in regards to shutting off.. get to know your gear. The flash will shut off in on off position two or stay on in position one.

            why is this is essential?

            Comments about Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Essential Accessory Kit:

            I bought this kit because it was the same price for just the light alone .I bought the light because they no longer make the 580 .I would love this flash if only it didn't shut down completely when its not fired every couple of minutes .
