Hey guys, for those of you who have the 600ex-rt, can you HSS at 1/8000 when flash is off camera using radio transmission? I have a 5d mark ii and 580ex ii, so i was wondering if I should upgrade to 5d mark iii / 600ex-rt or get a couple of pocket wizard transceiver and receiver. Most of my shots are always on camera flash, so I was hoping to experiment with some off camera flash. Or I guess the cheapest route is to just pick up 430ex ii slave?


5D mk II, Rokinon 8mm, Rokinon 14mm, 28mm 1.8, 50mm 1.4, 85mm 1.8, 85mm 1.2L II, 100mm 2.8L, 24-105mm L, 70-200mm 2.8L IS II

HSS works at any shutter speed, above x sync, available on the camera. What becomes a limitation is the effective distance of the speedlite from the subject.

ControlTL with 580EXII has issues with RFI. I was never happy with it until I got Nissin Di866 speedlites.

If you want to experiment a bit, best option is YN-622c. They are economical and offer a rich feature set.

Long thread on this forum to help you get a feel for capabilities. Cliveyboy on the thread has a very informative handbook available. link in his signature. I consider it a must read if you have YN-622s.

second that. nissin units cause no interference. 580ex ii is a nasty beast :), but using the included RF sock improves things for me. i still prefer using the nissins with Flexes
