Canon 600EX-RT Overview

Complete with built-in radio transmission wireless functionality, the Speedlite 600EX-RT sits at the top of Canon's on-camera E-TTL / E-TTL II compatible flash lineup with a powerful guide number of 197' at ISO 100 and 200mm.

This system also does not need direct line-of-site like traditional optical-based transmission and will work through obstacles.

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. On the back of the 600EX-RT is a backlit dot-matrix LCD panel that displays the status and allows users to easily access and change settings. Additionally, the flash is durable with a redesigned contact construction and improved dust and water resistant sealing.

Other capabilities of the 600EX-RT include a stroboscopic mode as well as high-speed, first and second curtain sync settings for more control over your image's final look. The flash is powered by 4 AA batteries which provide a recycle time of 0.1-5.5 seconds, though it does have a port for an optional external power pack. It comes with a color filter holder with case, a light orange filter, a dark orange filter, a mini stand, and a Speedlite case.

My best light investment and a good combination with my EOS 5D mark IV. Easy to use and manipulate.

Very good Speedlite but watch out for other 2.4 ghz devices!

I bought 3 of these Speedlites along with the ST-E3-RT Transmitter. It's a great setup with plenty of power. The menu and display is easy to use with a day or two of using them. I used the radio link in a large room and they worked great. The only issue I found is my home Google WIFI extenders interfere with the signal. The "Link" drops after a few minutes no matter what channel I put the Speedlites on including the Auto setting. I don't think this is really an issue with the Speedlite, but it's something to be aware of if you set up in a place with devices searching for a 2.4ghz band. The Speedlites also have an optical option to fire as a backup.

Never lets you down

This flash coupled with a Canon EOS 7D mrk II Has never let me down with over 9,000 images taken. Just change the batteries as needed and go. I never have to think about the flashes performance. Plain and simple it just works all the time every time.

Speedlite 580EXII replacement

Integrates well with the camera but is heavier and bigger than the Speedlite 580EXII it is replacing. Features about the same and way more expensive.

Great flash!!

Just had to replace my previous 600EX after 3 years of heavy usage. Solid flash. These replace the 500EX which was a lemon - the neck always became loose causing bad contact reliability. Canon fixed that issue with the 600.

Works great on Auto TTL

For an amateur, this is great on full auto. Used a wide-angle lens and bounced the flash off the ceiling for group shots. The lighting was excellent.

Very Nice: Powerful, Powerful, Powerful
