Very Happy


from Trin Cities, MN  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I needed a speedlite to provide hair and rim light to supliment my protable monolights. As expected the 600EX-RT fits the bill for these duties. Adorama had what I wanted and was quick to ship.


Switched back from other brand


from Los Angeles, CA

I've been an international photographer for over 11 years now. Just switched back to Canon after 6 years with another brand. After all that time I just never bonded with the other brand. I love the quality I get with my Canon system over any other system I've ever used.




from Kenai ,Alaska

This flash has definitely exceeded my expectations. I have low light over half the year living in Alaska . The capabilities of this device are phenomenal. I just started in photography and this flash gives me the opportunity to expand. This new technology has the ability to sync and control multiple flashes with this device.


This was by far the best ...


from California

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.


The greatest flash ever


from El Cerrito, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

The greatest flash ever, I love it all around.

Amazing Flash


from Austin, TX

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.


Fantastic! Expensive!


from San Francisco Bay Area  -  Pro Photographer

Just as every reviews you have read, this is an excellent Speedlite in terms of performance, quality, & reliability—all this comes with a price. I would say, if your work pays you well enough & requires your equipment to have a 99.9% reliability rate, go for it. Otherwise, the Yongnuo YN600EX-RT may be a good alternative.


Best Speedlite


from oneida NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

Just upgraded from a 580ex and let me say this is the best hands down. Adorama delivers, that is why I keep going back. AAAAA+++++


Just the ticket


from Jordan, MN  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I ordered this product specifically for a special event I had to go along with my 2 -canon 580's. Since I delayed in ordering, I received it the day before my event, no time to practice, but thankfully it was very intuitive. It worked exactly how I had hoped as a master to my 2 580's, it was easy to adjust the settings and I am looking forward to learning all the features.


Gets the Job Done


from Connecticut  -  Photo Enthusiast

As someone who only used manual flash, the controls are relatively intuitive. Does what it's supposed to do, and the slide lock is pretty cool.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

LAWRENCE M  Is the 600EX-RT speedlite compatible with older Canon speedlites (580 & 430 series) when used in conjunction with transceivers such as Radio Poppers and Pocket Wizards?
JERRY S  I think yes. I used a 600 EX-RT with a 580 EX II together with a radio trigger. When on the camera the 580 will fire the 600 visually but the 600 cannot fire the 580 by radio. Hope that helps.
CHRIS F  Is an on camera transmitter required to operate the 600 EX speedlite on my 5D II off camera?
JAMIE T  This may not be much help, but I have a 5D III and have always used my pocket wizards to trigger the 600-EX. I believe I looked into this when I first purchased the flash, though, and I'm pretty sure that you would need a canon transmitter on your camera to trigger the flash. Sorry I can't give a more definite answer.
Shopper  Is this the real deal flash in this kit or the imported one?
BRYCE N  It is the real deal all the way. I love this flash and would love to buy another one when I have more money
