Given the reverse engineering that Pixel and YN have been doing with ETTL for their triggers, it seems like a logical next step would be to create a product that replicates the 600EX-RT radio functions. a STE3 with a hot shoe. :-)

I would expect that to be a given, probably working on that right now. They might also be working on a hole in the system such as to make it possible to use your existing flashes within the system. Maybe by sometime late next year for around $200 for the flash itself?

My STE3 is coming tomorrow. I did go to B&H on Friday morning, after seeing it in stock on their website Thursday night, but unfortunately their "in stock" on their website does not differentiate between in stock in warehouse and in store. In this case, it was in stock in warehouse.

I've been having fun with my two 600's in the meantime. Looking forward to getting them both off the camera.

Is there anything about a 2.4 signal that allow Canon to encrypt the data being sent on their radio system?

I can see how YN et al can break the optical system quite easily, but a radio system?

I too fear for Pocket Wizard, being pinched on both sides by the superb Yn system for the hobbyist/frugal photographer and Canon radio on the pro end.

Guess their dumb triggers are their best future hope (hence the updated PWIII) and the massive installed user base that uses them.

John, my wife grew up in Brooklyn, Park Slope, and lived in Sheepshead Bay when we met. I worked in the NYS Supreme Court on Adams Street. We wound up living on Joralemon St., between Henry & Hicks for 8 yrs before moving to Westchester.

And I have very good friends who moved from Putnam County to Georgia few years back.

I don't know about encrypting the data, but you can assign a 4 digit pin to yours so no one else sets yours off.

Chinatown? I'm there at least once a month, and I live 55 miles north. Used to go to Joy Luck, but after 55 years, they retired a few years back.

Loved Nu Ling Hong (sp?) on Bayard until it was taken over.

Now go to Wo Hop downstairs. Duck yat gaw mein. Man, I can taste it now.

I miss Chinese food so much... One of my bestfriend family used to be one of the owners at Wo Hop.

Reading this thread from start to finish has got me itchin' for a switchin'.
I have two 580exII, ST-E2, 4 PW & Strobes. Question is, do I want to only upgrade my speedlite hardware or get rid of everything and only go the speedlite route? Then again, is there anyway that the RT in the ST-E3 can trigger strobes... maybe sometime down the line with some sort of 3.5mm adapter??

Hmm...

If you have the cash, do it. Getting the 600EX' is one of the best things I ever did. I spent more than the value of a 5D Mark III, now that I think of it, but the ease of use and the reliability are amazing.
