A new dot-matrix LCD panel for display of all pertinent shooting information, backlit controls plus an internal sound generator. A new color filter holder helps maintain accurate color in a variety of ambient light conditions. The built-in radio triggering (Speedlite 600EX-RT Only) offers remote lighting control over distances up to 30m, effectively avoid interference due to reception angles or obstacles, and increase the flexibility of multi-flash wireless photography.
Speedlite 600EX-RT / 600EX is designed to meet the professional flash standards that bring more effective flash photography in more situations than previously possible. It has an improved maximum Guide No. of 60 (meter; ISO 100; 200mm) and an expanded flash coverage from lens’ focal length 20mm to 200mm (supports 14mm with wide panel).
A range of flash modes are supported such as E-TTL II / E-TTL / TTL autoflash, Flash External Metering, Manual Flash and Stroboscopic Flash for meeting various needs under different situations. A new "Light Distribution" function allows 2 settings for flash coverage, either as "Guide Number Priority" for better telephoto flash or "Even Coverage" for more even light distribution across the whole frame. The Color Filter Holder SCH-E1 and Color Filter Set SCF-E1 that come with the Speedlite can be used to optimize color temperature in tungsten light environment, and with the White Balance automatically adjusted and transmission of color temperature information, more superior flash performance can be assured.
Working in conjunction with EOS SLR's, the Speedlite 600EX-RT / 600EX automatically provides illumination using its built-in AF assist beam. This means more accurate AF, faster, even in dark or low contrast situations, with all lenses 28mm or longer. 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.
Speedlite 600EX-RT is equipped with a new dot-matrix LCD panel for easier viewing and display of more detailed information. Coupled with the LED Backlit buttons, flash operation is easy even in the dark. Speedlite 600EX-RT is designed with enhanced controls to make operation simpler. It features an enhanced lock lever placement to allow more space for fingers and easier operation, a reshaped lock-release button for easier unlocking of the speedlite, and a new lock function at the power switch for locking all setting, dials and buttons to prevent inadvertent operation. Speedlite 600EX-RT offers 18 custom functions and 7 personal functions for more personalized flash operation according to each photographer’s preference. Flash settings can also be controlled through the menu of compatible EOS cameras easily.
The Speedlite 600EX-RT / 600EX is the most rugged, durable and reliable Speedlite in the Canon arsenal with construction on par with high-end Canon DSLRs. The flash head is more rugged and durable than its predecessor and a redesigned hot shoe contact ensures seamless communication. Dust and water resistance has been improved significantly as well: all moving parts and areas surrounding the flashes display and buttons are sealed for uninterrupted performance in harsh conditions. A new dust and water resistant adapter for the mounting foot creates a dust and water resistant seal between camera and flash.
The Speedlite 600EX-RT has a built-in radio trigger, providing reliable off-camera flash at distances of up to 30m (98.4 feet), even around corners. 15 frequency channels are available, just select the one with the best reception for the location you are shooting.
Position your EOS anywhere you like and trigger it with the Speedlite 600EX-RT from up to 30m away. Just equip the camera with a Speedlite transmitter ST-E3-RT radio trigger or a second Speedlite 600EX-RT flashgun to enjoy dramatic alternative viewpoints. Up to 15 cameras can be trigger at once for synchronised shooting.
Use up to 15 Speedlite 600EX-RT units together for dramatic multi-flash photography – perfect when shooting large objects, interiors or portraits. Flashguns may be placed in one of three groups (up to five with when using radio triggering), which can be controlled individually or all together.
