Oh, thats bad luck....
Mine is working fine.
I even managed to fire my 600EX RTs with my Fuji X100s.....

Nice little piece!

Not specifically electronic- rather electric: the dozens of my eneloop cells.
Since 2008, not one died till now, reliable; energy for flash, camera, cellphone etc.

Got my X100s.

And I managed to fire my 600EX RTs at 1/1000s.
Triggered by the Yongnuo E3 RT, manual power set.
(it only worked with the firmware 1.09, which I found at the P.O.T.N. - forum; not at their homepage....)


Thinking loud: short focal range, f stopped down you will see a bit of the cage too.
Maybe you replace the side where the action takes place with some kind of plexiglass.
Its more reliable the some thin wires, if it is better optically- I hope so.
Nice idea anyway!

I have and highly recommend the Sony RX100.
Small weight and size, relatively large sensor. I carry this little camera almost everywhere.

What I want to buy, next step larger and heavier- but still smaller then a 1 or 5D is the
Fuji X100s.

What I really really need is the Fuji X100s.

Recently I have to save a bit of money for different reasons.
But: in may I will have this camera.
And will enjoy the benefits of a leaf shutter with my 600rt's with the Yongnuo E3 RT as a fantastic system- in and outdoor.

I watch mainly the events, but its always nice to see the photographers with theier equipment.
Although, I dont identify too much, a 70-200/2,8 I know, but not which one of the three, or something bigger like a 300/400/500/600, and again, sometimes hard to say which one.
And the bodies are much too small for me, even with my HD- TV set.

With a little patience you could buy a system of Yongnuo- clones.
The YN E3 RT works very good: AF light, group mode for my  "ancient" 1D Mk4, an USB- interface for further upgrades.
So chances are good the YN 600 RT will be a fine and affordable flash.

Benefit of the 600RT with a little help from china:
Soon I will buy me the Fuji X100s; so with its leaf shutter AND the possibility to fire the 600units with the Yongnuo E3 RT I am pleased with this system.
600RTs: I like them a lot. And the help from China makes them univwrsal tools.

The Mk2 is more consequent in its features.
I didnt like the optical viewfinder because it was too small. A halfway solution, and made it bulky.
No increasing number of pixels, another good point.
How does it look?
Absolutely dont care.
I own a Sony RX100; I like its small size and superb IQ.
The 1GX offers more, so it is bigger.

@ flash: hm. When I use all this extra gear it makes no difference if I carry my 1 or 5D.

Price: $ 600 in a few months will be the fair price for it.

Thanks for reading!

$299? Yikes! Got mine for 150 just 2 weeks ago.
Works lile a charm.
And yes: they have their own store at ebay.

Take a look for "hkyongnuo"- got mine from them.
My unit works well, and I am glad to have it to remote control my 600RTs sitting on other then Canon- bodies.
I will buy the Fuji X100s this year- lets see.

@ BL: exactly my thoughts.

My YN E3 RT just arrived.
Boy, am I curious!

Sony RX100, first version.
The price dropped since there is a marginal better, 50% heavier version 2.
