              Comments about Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Essential Two Flash Wireless Kit:

              So now I have 3 600EX-RT's! It took me no time to configure the ST-E3-RT transmitter and link them to the 3 flashes. I put the transmitter on my 6D and took a couple of shots. Child's play with amazing results. Love it and plan to get a second transmitter for my 70D so I can shoot both at the same time during my shoots. Yes the transmitter lacks a number of features as described in some of the other reviews but overall the integration and automation is amazing making it an overall very powerful solution. The attached picture was my second shot making a few minor corrections after the first. Very easy and very fast. I recommend the Canon 600EX-RT flash and kit 100%!!

                Comments about Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Essential Two Flash Wireless Kit:

                This is an awesome product by Canon. The idea of shooting off camera flash and getting studio quality photos makes it all worth the investment. If you are a serious photographer and you liked working with the 580ex II, then you are going to love this one.

                Excellent kit and flexibility

                With one speedlite, you could achieve a lot. With two, I have lot of flexibility and room to experiment. These flashes and controller are fantastic, step change improvement from 580's and manual triggers, here I have the flexibility to combine Ettl with Manual.

                    As a bundle and on sale this is an investment that feels totally worth it. Build quality all around is excellent.

                          Comments about Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Essential Two Flash Wireless Kit:

                          If you are looking to get into RT, this is one of the best ways to do it. You'll likely need more than one flash and the transmitter anyway, making this buy both convenient and a great deal. I recently purchased this and with the Google Wallet bonus, each speedlite came out to under $[$]. I think this is the price that Canon sells as refurbished when they offer 20% off a couple times a year. And that's if you can find it during those rare moments it's in stock. Also, I purchased my first 600 for $[$] and thought that was nice!I don't know much about flash and have a lot to learn but a little testing proved this is easy to setup and get going. There are many great reviews about both the flash and the transmitter. I just wanted to emphasis the great deal B&H has by offering this as a kit.

                                If you are Canon user, have a recent DSLR like a 5D Mark III or 6D, and don't already have one of these components, then this is the sweetest deal yet! It is a big chuck of money at once, but I can tell you I was headed down this road already. You can do a lot with these three products. Unless you are Syl Arena or Joe McNally this may be all you need in the flash department.

                                I use flashes for portrait, engagement and wedding photography when needed. I had one Speedlite 600EX-RT previously but wanted two more for more advances set ups. This bundle with the included transmitter met my need as it also frees up all the flashes off camera and from any cables. Its pricy but great if you can afford it.
