Asked by: danh
The Yongnuo YN-E3-RT Wireless Speedlite Transmitter for Canon, B&H # YOYNE3RT, is not compatible for use with the Canon 580EX or the Canon 580EX II Speedlite Flash. The Yongnuo YN-E3-RT Wireless Speedlite Transmitter for Canon is a radio wireless transmitter and is only compatible for use with Canon speedlite flashes that have built-in radio transceivers. The only flashes currently in Canon's lineup that have built-in radio transceivers that would communicate with the Yongnuo YN-E3-RT would be the Canon 600EX II-RT, the Canon 600EX-RT, and the Canon 430EX III-RT Speedlite Flashes. The Canon 580EX II Speedlite Flash is an older flash model that only has optical infrared wireless remote triggering (not radio triggering), and as such, would require the Canon ST-E2 IR Speedlite Transmitter, B&H # CASTE2, or the or the Vello FWIRC-C FreeWave IR TTL Flash Commander for Canon, B&H # VEFWIRCC, for wireless triggering usage needs.

Will the YN-E3-RT trigger autofocus infrared in Canon 5DIV? in the past it worked with the II and III but not IV.

question

Is there another Yongnuo product that allows me to change the settings on THIS transmitter ? - when shooting on a tripod, I want to be able to shoot multiple shots without touching the controls while this is connected to my camera to avoid camera shake. A remote that can change the flash settings on this would be amazing. Does that exist ? thank you !
Asked by: Mark
I have used this transmitter for multiple flashes by just taking it off the camera and holding it separately to avoid any movement, you might want to check that it still responds to any changes to your flash settings but pretty sure it does.

You are trying to mix flash gear with two incompatible flash systems. For the YN685 With a built-in YN-622C radio receiver, the YN685 Wireless TTL Speedlite from Yongnuo offers complete radio slave functionality with both the YN-622C and RF-603/YN-560 radio systems for maximum compatibility with your existing gear For the YN-E3-RT The YN-E3-RT controller is designed to be used with the Canon and Yongnuo 600ex-rt speedlights. Suggest you download the manuals, read them carefully, and then select the system that meets your needs the best.
