I thought I read somewhere that you can trigger the shutter remotely with the new 600EX/STE3 combo. For instance, with the ST-E3 mounted on the body, I believe you can trigger the shutter on the camera via radio with a 600EX. Can anyone confirm or refute this? I really like the Odins, but this feature would be a nice perk.
Yes I've read that multiple places. Only with a 2012 camera I believe (5DMKII and 1DX). A ST-E3-RT will also remote trigger.
Very cool. That does choosing between the Odins and the 600EX more difficult. I like the performance and price of the Odins, but having an OE Canon solution for radio flash triggering as well as radio shutter triggering would eliminate a half dozen accessories out of my camera bad, which is getting crowded as is already.
I have a seperate bag for flash gear
4 x 580ex2
4 x yongnuo external battery packs
4 x odin recievers
2 x odin transmitters
1 x Ni-Mh battery charger
piles of spare AA eneloops
I also keep a physical eTTL cable in there just in case
and a gary fong light sphere and stofen omni bounce
also just in case
