Canon 600EX-RT overview

  • 1Description

The Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Essential Accessory Kit from B&H combines the high-performance Speedlite 600EX-RT flash unit with a bounce dome diffuser for softer, more flattering light emission, and a rapid charger with 4 NiMH rechargeable AA batteries to keep you always at the ready to get the most from your Speedlite.

The Speedlite 600EX-RT features a wireless multiple flash system using radio wave communication that provides precise control over as many as five groups or fifteen individual flashes at a distance of up to 98.4'. Communicating on 2.4 GHz frequency, it will not be interrupted by physical barriers. It is also very powerful, with a guide number of 197' (60 m) at ISO 100 and a zoom flash head that covers a 20-200mm range. It provides full swivel movement of 180° in both directions. Compatible with the AF frame of all EOS cameras, the Speedlite 600EX-RT even works perfectly with the 61-Point High Density Reticular AF found in the EOS-1D X and the EOS 5D Mark III. It supports all current versions of TTL, including evaluative E-TTL II.

A dot matrix LCD panel and backlit button provide easy visibility, and flash functions can be controlled via the camera's menu. A metal hot-shoe and a dust and water-resistant body allow it to be used in adverse conditions, and the included color filter holder and two orange color filters multiply your creative options.

  • Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT

    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 two-way 2.4 GHz radio system provides added reliability and a range up to 98.4' among up to 5 groups with a total of 15 individual Speedlites. 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.

The charger has switching 100-240VAC power, enabling use all over the world. Its compact outlet prongs can fold in, making the unit more compact for storage.

Canon 600EX-RT reviews

Speedlite 600EX-RT Essential Accessory Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest flash ever used worth the cost I used a non Canon Flash for the last couple of years. I always had issues controlling the flash and the image was to dark or blown out. When the opportunity arose to purchase the 600 ex-rt at a real good price I figured why not what do I have to loose. I used it this past weekend for a wedding shoot. The match up was perfect to my 1dx. It synced without missing a step. The images came out perfect on the screen, they were even better on the computer. SPEND THE EXTRA MONEY ON THIS FLASH !!!! you won't be sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT I recently purchased 5-Canon Speedlites 600EX-RT’s to replace all my 5- 580EXII’s and I sold all my pocket radios receivers. Just as a measure for those who are contemplating to purchase the 600EX-RT’s I still have my first Canon 10D though all the 5D’s- 60D-1DMk 2n-1DKk III & IV. All of them sync at HHS and work flawlessly in all modes “except” the Group feature, & I have a way around that, but will post my findings’ as I have not had the time to-do so at the moment. Hopefully Canon might release a firmware to the existing models to add the group feature in use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi Flash Set-up overexpozure This is a reaction to the previous review below by njw1224 from Wheeling, WV. It seems that there is an over exposure problem when using multiple flash set-ups with the 600EX Rt/600EX. This can happen if there are three firing groups - A, B, and C. If a firing group C has been added and an over exposure results, avoid firing group C toward the main subject as this will likely cause the said overexposure. Alternatively, eliminate firing group C, and lump the extra slaves (from the now defunct firng group C) to firing group B or A. This works 99% of the time even if you point all flashes to the main subject. The phenomenon of over exposure in multi flash set-ups has been mentioned in pages 87 and 112 of the 600EX RT manual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best canon speedlite to date I have most of the speedlites by Canon. I also have several other brands. This one was bought for my 5 D mk III, and qickly has become the favorite. The built quality is the best that I have seen, and the easy menu is a pleasure to work with. As far as performance goes, it is flawless and is also very good on batteris (even with some pretty heavy use). Fast recycling and consistant output is the best that I have had with self contained powered speedlite. Very, very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Flash This flash is absolutely amazing. I owned a 580EX prior to purchasing this flash. It was an upgrade that was well worth it. The flash is very powerful and having the wireless capabilities built into the flash has changed the way I shoot. I consider myself an advanced amateur and flash photography has been a bit intimidating at times. I took some classes with Canon and I am no longer intimidated with flash. When I couple this flash with the remote transmitter, I have been able to get so much more creative with my shooting. The only real downside I have is that the flash is a bit expensive. However, when considering the fact that you don't need to buy remote triggers such as Pocket Wizards, the overall value of this flash makes sense. I just purchased a refurbished 600EX-RT through Canon's online store. I'm excited about the options I'll have with two flash units now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Flash System I'm an advanced amateur photographer getting his start as a strobist. I do some freelance work with local companies in the Nashville area and my occasional clients/gigs as time permits. I have to give credit where due, as this 600ex-rt system is a top performer on my list. Although some will rave that speedlites don't stand up to studio flash, I'll say from experience the 600 is darn close. Anyone who uses speedlites know to increase output/light intensity and recycle speeds you simply bundle more lights. Well this guy makes that job easy. A simple multi-mount flash bracket like the triple threat and your trusty transmitter, st-e3-rt, and you're off to the races. Oh wait, don't forget there's NO CORDS! My favorite part is that I can literally pack for practically any event with one bag and shave weight from that bag in the process. Let me see you do that with studio strobes!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This was by far the best flash that I own. Recently, however, the "A" icon( for the Auto zoom for sensor size) seems to have just vanished, and only the "M" will display. I've come across a few other folks who have encountered this. Maybe there is a simple fix for this problem, but I haven't found it yet. If anyone here has encountered this, I'd sure appreciate your feedback.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Flash The Speedlite 600EX-RT is a terrific flash. I have only had it for a few days but taken a hundred inside and outside shots experimenting with its settings. Perfect exposure in all scenario's. Great addition.
