Seems like the eBay store has it, does it mean this is legit?

If it is, I will definitely pick one up, been holding off on the 602 to wait for this!

They are twice the price of a 602 though.


Ever so happy with my 1D classic

They were out last month when I deciding what triggers I wanted to use.

ETA: According to this they've been out since early March: http://www.lightingrum​ours.com …rs-available-to-order-961 (external link) From what I've read, they haven't been getting the greatest reviews.

I'll stick with my RF-602s thanks. One thing I don't like about the RF-603s is that there is no test flash button.

Interesting side note. I was playing around with my 603's the other nite when I took a shot which ended up turning into an 8 sec or so exposure. But strange thing was I pressed the remote button on the 603 during the few seconds which ended up firing the strobe remotely. Strange glitch or something so I don't know if it isn't possible to 'test' these things somehow.

On my 603's, I can test fire the flash IF the trigger is mounted on my hotshoe AND the shutter is pressed halfway.

Love my 603s. The battery, the transceiver, etc.

I guess there's not a lot of hype for them, but one thing's for sure, ability to use AAA's. Ordered them yesterday after I realized it was legit!

I guess there's a lot of mixed thoughts on them, but hey, still a $44 set that gets the main job done

I got mine for $40 even. I ordered 4 sets. The only thing I hate about them is the dip switches hidden under the battery. I can see why they did it, though. A small tradeoff.

Ooh, they're fullfilled by Amazon now! http://www.amazon.com …ics&qid=1304970​492&sr=1-1 (external link)

A little more pricey ($47.99/set) but worth it if you need them in a rush.

Yup, I saw them on Amazon, but wasn't super sure haha So I guess the official YN eBay site did the trick... saved 3 bucks, but still gonna take a few weeks. Gives me more time to learn more before they actually get in though haha

There's really not a lot to learn about em. They're identical. You can use it to trigger flashes remotely and you can use it as a remote trigger. That's about the gist of it.

btw you don't want to know what I payed for mine. :-)
