Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Review

  • 4.5 / 5
    • The good:
      Radio frequency triggering; Weather proof system; Powerful zoom
    • The bad:
      Unwieldy; Menus can get confusing

    The Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT is a high-performance TTL flash unit designed to meet the expanding creative needs of modern professionals. Integrated radio frequency triggering, in addition to standard infra-red wireless flash control, allows photographers to achieve exciting results with complex on-and-off-camera lighting set-ups.

     

    EOS cameras with a connected Speedlite 600EX-RT can also be triggered remotely, allowing photographers to explore more extreme shooting angles to produce surprising and inspiring creative results. The Speedlite 600EX-RT offers an expanded zoom range and a higher guide number, plus a number of improvements over its predecessor in both operation and feel. It features a new dot-matrix LCD panel for display of all pertinent shooting information, backlit controls plus an internal sound generator.

     

    Reliability is ensured with improved hot shoe contacts, improved flash head durability and the most comprehensive dust and water sealing system ever on a Canon Speedlite flash. A new color filter holder helps maintain accurate color in a variety of ambient light conditions. Subjects over a wide range of distances can be lit creatively or evenly exposed, thanks to an increased guide number of 60m and wide lens coverage of 20-200m. For wide-angle shots, a diffuser adapter can also reduce the focal length to 14mm and the bounce-and-swivel flash head creates more flattering, shadowless effects. Ideal for shooting portraits, a catch-light panel produces natural catch-lights in the eyes of a subject when shooting with bounce flash.

     

    Additionally, custom flash coverage options provide more creative scope by using guide number priority to light the subject, while creating slightly darker edges to the frame. Like its predecessor, the Speedlite 600EX-RT communicates white balance settings to the camera through the hot shoe connection. However, to further balance flash and ambient light, a new color filter adapter and two supplied colour gels can be fitted to balance the temperature of the flash and create a more natural effect when shooting around tungsten or mercury lighting.

     

    When shooting in dark conditions, photographers can also employ the AF-assist beam for accurate autofocus with lenses of 28mm or longer, ensuring the subject remains in focus when the flash fires. Powered by four AA/LR6 batteries for added convenience, the Speedlite 600EX-RT offers fast, silent recycle times, allowing photographers to keep shooting and exploring creative lighting effects in all conditions. This one is easily the most sophisticated and powerful of Canon flashes. The new features are designed to be more user-friendly.

     

    There are 18 custom functions and a bunch of menus via Òsoft buttons. At first you may find it frustrating and confusing but you should just bear with it and practice learning how to switch between optical and radio and then finding out which modes work best for you. It has all the usual features you'd expect from a top of the line flash. It's powerful (GN 197 (60 m) ISO100), well-built and versatile. It rotates a full 180 degrees and has focus assist. It's got additional weather sealing and now zooms all the way to 200mm to match a 20-200mm zoom range. The new system works flawlessly once you learn how to use it. For the right photographers, the Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT will be a wonderful tool. You get remote flash power control, flexibility, total creative control, all in a convenient and compact package.
