Anyone here have any experience with the Yongnuo 600RT? If so, what are your impressions? Does it seem solidly constructed? I currently have a Canon 430 EXII and a Yongnuo 560II (as well as a couple of older flashes for manual use). I understand that he 600RT will fire either the Canon or the 560 II but will it fire both of them simultaneously? That could simplify my remote flashes for my real estate work greatly.

Thanks.

I don't know the answer to your question, but Yongnuo now also offers a receiver for the 600RT-EX system.

If the flash doesn't work the way you want, you may still be able to do what you want by adding this receiver to it.

Had the Canon 600 and just received the YN 600. Construction is adequate for hobby use but not the same as the Canon. It is after all a cheap version of the real thing.

It can not find anything that indicates it will serve as an optical master. It will act as a radio master. Which would require purchasing a couple of the new YNE3-RX receivers to allow your 430 and 560 receive the radio signals.

If someone knows differently about the YN 600 acting as a optical master please enlighten...

Since he original post, I have found that the 600RT will not fire the 430 EX or the 560 III. Looks like it's not what I thought. Oh well. My Phottix remotes work well so I'll just keep doing what I have been.

It will fire them if you put the YNE3-RX E3-RX TTL on each one of them. Heck it can even trigger studio lights!

I've got Phottix remote which I have been very pleased with. The YN 560 III is also very good and a good value. I have been very happy with it so when I read about the 600 I thought that might be a good way to go. Further reading makes me think it's not. I appreciate everyone's input. Thanks.
