For added coverage and functionality, the flash's zoom head can reach from 20-200mm, with the option for wide 14mm coverage when the built-in diffusion panel is used. Also, the unit can tilt from -7 to +90° and rotate 180° either left or right for complete bounce capabilities.

Additionally, the flash is durable with a redesigned contact construction and improved dust and water resistant sealing.

Simply the best out there for Canon Camera's with unexcelled dependability and never a hitch. After using my 580's for the past 15 years this was a welcome new addition with plenty of power when you need it... I use it both with and without extenders for wildlife and avian photography....

Fast and super efficient!

I previously had Speedlite 600EX RT, and the difference is very visible. The previous one was slow and it flashed a lot of light which made people uncomfortable on the set. With this new version, I'm flattered! The difference omg!! The speed, the light/flash correction...People don't bother with the flash, the diffusers help so much! Later on, I will help myself to buy another one for photo set combinations! Very surprised by the product!

Where have you been all my life?!

This is my fav flash to use for shooting weddings. It's user friendly, but still has plenty of room for me to learn on.

question

What gobo can I attach?
Asked by: Avrumie K.
The Lastolite Strobo Gobo kit, B&H # LASG, would work for your needs. It comes with two gobos, but would also accept any B size 86mm metal gobo. The Lastolite Direct to Flashgun Bracket for Strobo Light Modification System, B&H # LALS2601, would be needed to connect the Gobo Kit to your flash.

question

Will this work on the 5D Mark III or a 6 d
Asked by: paul s.
This is the best flash I have ever used on my Canon 6D. I have the original 430EX and 580EX flash units, which can't be controlled by the 6D's menu screen. However, I can control the 600EX II-RT flash via the 6Ds screen if I want. This really is a great-performing flash all around. Glad I bought it!
