The supplier sent an incompatible transmitter designed for Nikon. They have offered a refund.

The pin configuration for the two transmitters is shown in the photo. Canon 1D takes a symmetric pin grouping as shown on the left, while the asymmetric pin grouping on the right will fire the flash but will be missing other functions. Since it is easy to miss the difference anyone with doubts about their transmitter should check that the pins are correct before deciding that a transmitter is defective or damaged.

the only function you will be missing is the wake up feature. so are you getting a set for canon or going with something else all together?

I will attempt to acquire a Canon transmitter from the vendor if it is available.

Ordered on the 1/18, arrived on 1/28 - so 8 working days. Fired a few test shots to make sure my 1xTX and 2xRX worked. So far so good!

I have an xsi and will upgrade to a XXD body in the near future. Is there a difference between rf-602's for XXD bodies and XXXD bodies? Or do they work on both?

they work on both as flash triggers, but the cable for use as a remote shutter release is different.

When I browsed for them in eBay, they were listed with titles specifying whether they are for XXD or XXXD. Then you can find them accordingly.

You guys may have already covered this (haven't read all 32 pages of this thread) but the RF-602's will also trigger a 270EX (in addition to 430EX (I & II) and 580EX's). You need to set the flash in manual mode on your camera, but the 270EX remembers the settings and will fire along with your other Speedlites. Of course, it's not as convenient as the 430 or 580's since you need to mount the 270EX on the camera when you want to change it's output. But if you're not shooting in changing lighting conditions, you can "set it and forget it" and away you go... :)

That's correct.. All intents and purposes the trigger and receivers are indentical but the cable connections between XXD and XXXD series cameras are different..

Had mine for about two weeks now. Took about 2 weeks to arrive to California. I have 1 Rx and 3 Tx and all work good with my 5D and Canon 430/550ex.

Just recieved mine today ! What a great product. I tested the range out in the restraunt that I work in. Its a big restaurant and the fired time after time no problem. I threw the cheap crap that I got of Ebay (the other ones I got) and these are in my bag. I did buy these of ebay but they are of much higher quality and as said before come with duracel batterys.

Great product do not hesitate to buy.

Thanks.

Update... Just done a burst with my 430EX II with these triggers, flashed every time. Im so happpppy !

+1

Another satisfied customer. I also bought the YN-465 flash off the site as well as I was looking for another flash to go along with my 580EXII. They both work great.

One question. I got one transmitter and two receivers. But if I wanted to use the transmitter to fire a flash AND act as a wireless shutter release would I be better off getting an extra transmitter to put on the hotshoe? Just curious how the timing works between the transmitter firing the flash and sending the signal to trip the shutter. I havent had time to do tests myself.

Thanks
