Best External Flah Ever

By

from Concord, NH  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I've been using this unit for the past two weeks on a variety of challenging on-site photo shoots of heavy metal bands in the New England area. It has performed flawlessly as a primary flash and as the master for my 430 EX. I was surprised that the batteries lasted for entire shoots (300+ images) without needing to be replaced.

This Flash fits my current setup.

By

from Centreville VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Use primarily for event and portrait photography. This flash works very well with my Canon systems (5D Mark 3 & 7D Mark 2). This is my 4th 600EX-RT flash. While other similar wireless flash systems may cost less, this flash is very easy to control using the internal menu system on my Canon camera bodies. I find the Canon menus much easier to use than the buttons and dials on the back of the flash unit. Canon could expand the set of filters provided with the unit. A lower price would be very helpful.

Very Happy

By

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

By

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.

expectations

By

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 ...

By

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.

Amazing Flash

By

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!

By

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.

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+++++

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Is this the real deal flash in this kit or the imported one?
STEVE S  It is the real deal.... It is a great buy from Adorama... I purchased 3 of them and they work great... So if you are looking great canon flash this is the one to buy... Also, since they are radio controlled I would suggest buying at least two of them if you can. I have been using Canon Speedlites for many years now and this is the best one that they have produced to date. Hope this helps.
CHRIS F  Is an on camera transmitter required to operate the 600 EX speedlite on my 5D II off camera?
STEPHANIE C  Hi! Your camera will need some way to communicate with the 600 EX if the flash is being used while off your camera's hot shoe. You can accomplish this wirelessly with an on-camera transmitter, or if you don't mind a cable, you could use a camera-specific cable to communicate between your camera and the flash. I have loved my 600EX beyond measure! Be sure to take advantage of light modifiers like soft boxes or the Rogue Flash Benders to soften the 600 EX's flash for indoor candid shots. Enjoy!
