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

yur gunna need another transmitter and work it and 1 of the receivers off of a different channel

I got my RF-602 today in the mail, im a little confused as to what the 2 cables/wires are and that little screw thing... Do i need this if im going to shoot with my 430 EX? (working with 1 strobe only).

dont think so, those are for shutter release i believe. all i did and i'm a total noob was Tx on the camera hot shoe and Rx on the flash hotshoe, g2g! be sure to turn on the Rx before mounting to flash hotshoe as the on/off switch isnt very accessible when mounted.

The cables are if you want to connect these slaves to studio flashes, or flashes without hotshoes. You can also set these slave to fire your camera instead of a flash.

Guys - I know it must of been covered before, but I've lost that page - Which ones of these would work on the 7D - same as the ones marked for the 5DII?

I'm going to pick up another set now, I never got to return the busted ones I bought for my 450D.

Here's an RF-602 search on eBay, sorted by lowest price:

I bought this set from foto4easy for $28.50 with free shipping:

You can also save 8-10% if you search through Bing.com to get cashback, which brings the set price down to about $25.

I can't seem to find links to them using bing search. Is the t1i kit for the RF-602s the same for the XSi? There's no 450d on cam.plus.

search bing for 17-55 and you'll see a 10% link for ebay. newayz, yes, the t1i is the same as the xsi as far as the rf-602's are concerned.

Just gave mine a real workout last Saturday. Everything work really well only had a few times where the flashes didn't go off while shooting some portraits. So went back to using a cable from the camera to the flashes, still had the same problem of the flashes not going off every time. Seems the RF-602 worked perfectly. Flashes not going off is from something else of which I have no idea what is causing the miss flashes. :o:D


Remember, Stressed spelled backward is Desserts.:)
Suggestions welcome.
