SPEEDLITE FLASHES
62
Wireless Radio Control
For sophisticated wireless flash setups, the 
Speedlite 600EX-RT and the Speedlite 
Transmitter ST-E3-RT represent the next 
generation in wireless flash systems. In 
addition to 
traditional 
optical 
wireless 
transmission, 
both the 
Speedlite 
600EX-RT and 
the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT facilitate 
radio controlled, two-way wireless 
transmission up to 100 feet, among up to five 
groups or 15 individual Speedlite flashes. 
Communicating on 2.4 GHz frequencies for 
radio transmission, radio controlled flash 
systems do not have the same directional 
limitations of traditional wireless optical 
transmitters. Where other wireless systems’ 
signals can be interrupted with physical 
obstacles, radio controlled systems excel. To 
avoid interference with other equipment on the 
same frequency, 15 transmission channels are 
available, selectable manually or 
automatically, and radio transmission IDs can 
be set to prevent misfiring in the event of 
signal interference on the same channel. With 
diverse flash metering options, and a number 
of flash modes all accessible from the menu 
and quick control screens of select EOS 
cameras, the Speedlite 600EX-RT and the 
Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT make complex 
lighting setups simple. With compact, weather 
sealed and reliable designs, combined with 
improved information panels and controls, 
The Canon EX-series Speedlite flashes have made multiple-flash 
photography simple, wireless and automatic. Using the Speedlite 
600EX-RT, Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX II, or Speedlite Transmitters 
ST-E2 or ST-E3-RT as a master unit, wireless signals are 
transmitted to numerous Speedlite flashes, creating myriad 
possibilities for lighting, no matter the location. Select  
EOS cameras have Integrated Speedlite Transmitters, allowing 
users to wirelessly control EX-series Speedlite flashes and doing 
away with the need for an external master unit. The Speedlite 
600EX-RT and the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT use two-way 
radio signals in addition to traditional wireless.
Wireless Flash Photography
Speedlite 600EX-RT and the 
Speedlite Transmitter 
ST-E3-RT are indispensible, 
eminently adaptable tools 
for advanced, professional 
flash photography.
E-TTL/E-TTL II Wireless  
Autoflash Control
Up to three groups (for main, fill and 
background) of slave units can be set up for 
comprehensive control of flash lighting. The 
Speedlite flash slave units can be assigned to 
group A, B, or C, with output ratio between 
groups A and B adjustable from 8:1 to 1:1 or 
1:1 to 1:8. The output of the group C can be 
adjusted through flash exposure 
compensation. Superb lighting is simple 
thanks to the E-TTL/E-TTL II autoflash system 
which controls the total flash output to ensure 
consistently correct exposure. Select EOS 
cameras with Integrated Speedlite 
Transmitters can control and trigger external 
Group firing mode
Group Firing
1
 – Set different flash modes for each group 
(A, B, C, D, and E) and perform multiple wireless flash 
shooting. Two or more units can be set as the same group.
Linked shooting function – Releases the camera that has the 
Speedlite 600EX-RT (or Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT) set 
as the master unit and release up to 15 cameras with the 
Speedlite or transmitter set as slave units.

Group firing mode is supported by the EOS-1D X, EOS 5D Mark III and later camera models. In earlier camera models, all flashes will switch to E-TTL automatically and group control is reduced to 3 groups.
Speedlites wirelessly through their built-in 
pop-up flash. The EOS 7D Mark II camera can 
control A, B, and C groups and also has a 
modeling flash feature for previewing the 
output of your external Speedlite flashes, 
available by pressing the depth-of-field 
button. Even with multiple Speedlite flashes, 
the modeling flash fires according to the ratios 
you have set. E-TTL/E-TTL II wireless autoflash 
also supports other Speedlite flash features 
including FE Lock, FP Flash, Flash Exposure 
Bracketing/Compensation, and Stroboscopic 
Flash. Finally, for macro shooting, the Macro 
Ring Lite MR-14EX II and Macro Twin Lite 
MT-24EX can be used as master units as well.

white balance when 
shooting indoors. 
Battery Magazine TP 
This magazine holds  
six commonly available 
C-size alkaline batteries. 
Included with Transistor 
Pack E, it is available

for matching ambient 
color temperature with 
that of the flash head for 
proper compensation. 
Compact Battery 
Pack CP-E4
This dedicated external 
power pack is dust/
water-resistant and 
makes the flash system 
dust/water-resistant.  
The power pack’s  
performance is the  
same as the Compact 
Battery Pack CP-E3.
Speedlite Release 
Cable SR-N3
Provides remote release 
and linked shooting  
functions by transmitting  
a wireless release signal  
to the camera itself. It’s  
compatible with cameras 
that have E-TTL/ETTL II 
autoflash; as well as  
an N3-type remote  
control terminal.
