I was also thinking about the Yongnuo st-e2, but I'm not sure if it's compatible with the 6D.
I was going to suggest this and their lights rather than screwing around with optical triggering. There is another thread here somewhere (here) discussing what it can do. The idea of firing Canon-type wireless lights with a different-brand body is intriguing.
i have the yongnuo st-e2 it does not work with the 5Dmk3 not sure why itsw fine for the other cameras but i've never used it since getting the phottix odins i should probably give it to someone who needs it more and might actually use it
It should. Do you have the latest firmware (v1.08) installed? The EX90 is going for $50 at 6th Ave via ebay, if anyone is interested.
yeah got the latest firmware but like i said the ST-E2 copy is so superceded now its in a pelican case somewhere in a different country to me so i can check, right now all i use are an odin controller and mitros + flashes with built in RT
You guys are talking at cross purposes.
The Yongnuo ST-E2 does not work with the latest cameras and never will, it does not have a USB port and is not firmware upgradeable.
Jim's link is for the Yongnuo YN-E3-RT, that is the radio based triggering system and it only works with the 600-EX-RT, no other flashes. It does have a USB port and is on Firmware 1.08 but is not relevant to this thread.
The 90EX is a POS, it does act as a trigger, but only if you have a camera with the flash settings in the menu, and it has so little power it can't act as fill even when not doing triggering duties, seriously, it is so underpowered it barely registers. I got one for free in an M kit, I thought B&H had made a mistake so asked them if I should send it back, they said no, neither B&H nor I attach any value to the 90EX whatsoever, it is practically useless.
