A brief "First Look" Review of Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT camera flash.

This is a hands on review of Canon's new flagship Speedlite Flash - the 600EX-RT. It is Part 1 of a 3 part review-series, which will be of interest to photographers and strobist enthusiasts.

This "First Look" review includes:
- introduction to the new flash itself
- a look at the features of the flash head
- a demonstration of how quickly it can recharge and quickly fire the flash
- demonstration of how to put on a gel and filter holder on to the flash head

It features:
- wireless Radio triggering
- control up to five groups of flashes.
- Zoom flash head
- maximum Guide Number (197 ft./60m at ISO 100).
- improved flash head durability, exceptional dust and weather resistance.
- AF Assist Beam
- Dot matrix LCD panel and backlit button
- Color filter holder for attaching Canon color gelatin filters.
- 18 Custom flash Functions
- Full flash head swivel.

This is the Future of Speedliting, and will no doubt be a feature of new Canon flashguns that Canon releases from now on (hopefully not just restricted to the "high end" flashguns.

It was announced on 2 March 2012, at the same time as the Canon EOS 5D Mark III. It replaces the Canon 580EX II as Canon's flagship Speedlite.

It is designed to partner with the ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter, which is fitted onto the hotshot of your Canon DSLR Camera. Radio triggering means that you don't need "line of sight".

Stay tuned to my CHANNEL as I will post more detailed reviews on this new camera flash shortly.
