Canon Speedlite Kit

Comments about Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Two Flash Wireless Portrait 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!

Excellent Purchase

Comments about Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Two Flash Wireless Portrait Kit:

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.

      Comments about Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Two Flash Wireless Portrait Kit:

      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.

        Comments about Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Two Flash Wireless Portrait Kit:

        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

            Comments about Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Two Flash Wireless Portrait Kit:

            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.
