Canon 600EX-RT overview

  • 1Description

The Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Two Flash Wireless Portrait Kit from B&H combines two high-performance Speedlite 600EX-RT flash units and an ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter with the accessories needed to create a professional wireless flash system ideal for portraiture. Included with the two flash units and transmitter is a flash umbrella mount kit that contains two 32" white umbrellas with removable black backing, two shoe mount brackets and two air-cushioned light stands. Also included in this kit are two 8-packs of rechargeable NiMH AA batteries and an 8-bay rapid charger for AA and AAA batteries.  

The Speedlite 600EX-RT features a wireless multiple flash system using radio wave communication that provides precise control over as many as five flash 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.

  • 2 x 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.

  • Canon ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter

    The Canon ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter can help you take full advantage of all the features on Canon's Speedlite 600EX-RT and 430EX III-RT flashes. The ST-E3-RT makes complex lighting setups simple by facilitating radio-controlled, two-way wireless transmission up to 98.4' away, among up to five groups or fifteen individual Speedlites. It has controls similar to the Speedlite 600EX-RT, including multiple flash metering options, and a variety of flash modes. Compact design with highly reliable construction combined with a clearly laid-out information panel and buttons with back lighting make this an indispensible tool for advanced professional flash photography. The ST-E3-RT represents the next generation in wireless flash systems.

    Note: Because it does not have an optical transmission function, the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT is not compatible with earlier Speedlite models such as 580EX II.

    Newly-designed wireless system uses 2-way radio wave communication for enhanced communication among master and slave units. Achieves a transmission distance of up to 98.4' (30 m), all at a 360 degree angle.
    Up to 5 groups, or 15 individual flashes can be controlled via 1 transmitter.
    Supports E-TTL II flash, manual flash, stroboscopic and auto external flash metering.
    Dot matrix LCD panel displays all pertinent information simultaneously and backlit control panel means easy operation.
    8 types of custom functions, 3 types of personal functions.
    Improved hot shoe contacts for more reliable information transmission and operation.
    Slave operation confirmation:
    Green Light--Lit: Radio Transmissions Okay
    Red Light--Lit: Not Connected
    Blinking: Transmission Error/ Too many units
    Orange Light--Lit: Sub-master transmission
    Blinking: Receiving remote release shooting, linked shooting signal

  • Watson 8-Bay Rapid Charger for AA / AAA NiMH or NiCd Rechargeable Batteries

    The Watson 8-Bay Rapid Charger for AA / AAA NiMH or NiCd Rechargeable Batteries charges up to 8 AA or AAA size nickel-metal hydride or nickel-cadmium rechargeable batteries. Charging time ranges from 3.6-4.6 hr for AA batteries, and 1.6-2 hr for AAA's. Eight individual LCD indicators give the charging status for each battery. Patented technology permits the charging of different sizes and types of battery simultaneously--charge a AA with a AAA, or an NiMH with an NiCd.

    The charger's intelligent microprocessor doles out the full charge to each battery while preventing overcharging, thanks to Delta Voltage Protection. The Safety Timer with Automatic Timer Shut-Off senses when batteries are fully charged and ceases charging. Automatic Charge Current Selection automatically chooses the optimal current for the batteries you're charging. Reverse Polarity Protection and Alkaline and Bad Battery Protection safeguard the charger and your batteries against damage when batteries are installed improperly. There's also a discharge function, allowing you to refresh the batteries prior to charging.

    The charger features an icon that shifts up and down during discharging, and stops shifting when discharge is complete. This icon also displays battery capacity while charging. The full-battery icon lights up when the batteries are fully charged. A flashing full-battery icon indicates an abnormality, such as the presence of a bad or alkaline battery, and at this point the charger will cease its operation. The charger is powered by an included external AC adapter with switching 100-240V power for worldwide use, or by the 12-24V DC cord which can plug into your car's cigarette lighter for charging on-the-go.

    Charges up to 8 AA or AAA size nickel-metal hydride or nickel-cadmium rechargeable batteries.
    Charging time ranges from 3.6-4.6 hr for AA batteries, and 1.6-2 hr for AAA's.

  • Impact Digital Flash Umbrella Mount Kit

    This is an Impact Digital Flash Umbrella Mount Kit. It includes 2- Impact 32" White umbrellas with removable black backing. Umbrellas soften, broaden, and diminish the light output of any tungsten or flash light source. A white umbrella without a black backing may also be used as a makeshift softbox, although the use of the light will not be as efficient as with a light box.

    Choosing umbrella size is determined by the size of the subject, and the strength of the light supply being used. Choosing an umbrella surface is as subjective as choosing a paint and brush. Each umbrella is perfect for a 1 person head shot, or 3x4 ft product setup.

    Each of the two Impact brand umbrella brackets fit on top of almost any light stand, has different size stud adapters for various grip clamps, includes a cold shoe mount for your shoe-mount flash. It swivels, tilts, locks into place, and accepts almost any small to medium sized umbrella.

    The Impact brand light stands are black, air-cushioned, and rise to a maximum height of 8' (2.4 m).

    When using this kit with the Nikon SB-900/910 or Canon 600EX-RT, additional umbrella brackets which offer an "adjustable" shoe mount are required (see Impact #9101880).

    Impact brand light stands are well-known for quality at a low price.
    An air cushioned light stand protects equipment and fingers from injury if you forget to tighten the stand section locks.

Canon 600EX-RT reviews

Speedlite 600EX-RT Two Flash Wireless Portrait Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Lightweight, durable and ideal for my rugged outdoor work in Alaska. Most of my setups are focused on people and their dogs on trails and along mountainsides. I require flexibility, dependable light control and quick access to controls. The 600EXRT system fits the bill. Canon has done an exceptional job with the design of the 600EX-RT - especially when combined with the ST-E3-RT Speedlight Transmitter. Very quick transmit/receive communications and it's easy to switch the Master/Slave relationship. My environments are challenging to manage with light that changes quickly. This is a perfect addition to my system

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Package This is a great package put together by B&H. Has everything you need for taking portraits or group shots. The only negative is the umbrellas, they are not the best quality. B&H should include higher end umbrellas. One of the umbrellas broke after a couple of setups. The good thing is B&H replaced it with no questions asked, at no charge. Everything else in the kit is outstanding. Dealing with B&H has always been a great experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kit! Love that it's wireless! This is a GREAT lighting kit! The 600EXs are wonderful, and the speedlite transmitter is so very cool! Easy setup (I did not have time to read through the manual before pulling them out of the box for an event shoot, but was able to essentially read a couple pages and get them working in a matter of minutes.) If you are looking to explore off-camera flash and/or studio lighting, this is a great way to start. For an extra $125, you get 16 rechargeable batteries, a nice battery charger, and a couple of simple light stands, speedlite brackets, and stands. A deal! Best of all, you can take the speedlites off the stand, push a button, and place them on your camera to start walking around to photograph folks. (This versatility is critical when shooting events where formal and casual shots have been requested.) The photo below was taken in the early evening. I used larger umbrellas than the ones that came with this purchase (due to the size of the group), but everything else is straight out of the kit. It was super easy to setup, and I think the shot turned out pretty well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT KIT - EXCELENTE KIT The 600EX-RT and the wireless radio trigger are awesome and the umbrellas are cool i think it is a great product and the batteries and charger it is very nice works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flashes, Decent quality accessories Expect amazing results from the canon products included in this kit. They are the flagship lighting products available from Canon at this time. The Included accessories are a great value and are basically free with purchase. Don't expect great thing from the umbrellas or stands as they are nothing special and probably won't last very long. Overall perfect kit to jump right into lighting and know you'll have the proper tools to do so.
Date published: 2016-11-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Purchase I'm moving away from studio strobes to on-location equipment. Working within a studio is great and all since you can control every aspect of your shoot, but I'm ready for a variably challenging environment. Of course the beauty of going to flash kit setup is that I can still shoot in studio using these lights. So that alone makes this the better way to go hands down.
Date published: 2016-08-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Canon Speedlite Kit Wow, what an amazing offer by B&H! I recently purchased the Speedlite Kit and couldn't be happier. It comes complete with everything one needs to get completely up and running with cutting edge speedlite (remote fired) technology. Thanks B&H for offering such a great package deal!
Date published: 2016-09-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A convenient set up to get a start in lighting setups A solution for those that want a simple kit to get a start in adding a lighting solution to your photography
