I guess you could use them for firmware updates, or as a coaster for a shot glass, or as a shim for a wobbly coffee table...

All shots of my son are good shots, then again I am biased! Essentially I achieved what I set out to do, which was work out the basic controls of the flash and how to get it and the camera to work together with minimal fuss. For now I am content to stick with this 'a bit beyond point and shoot' mentality, but as I digest the various resources mentioned here I have a camera and flash that will let me work up to more sophisticated scenarios.
I agree. So here is my first example:
I know the composition is awful and the background is fussy (but the subject is somewhat dear to me). I used the 24-70mm in Av mode (with the Camera set to keep the shutter between 1/60 and 1/200) and had the flash in simple ETTL mode, mounted on the camera and pointed straight ahead - i.e. in simple mode! I'm pretty happy with the result - it has had no post-processing beyond that which Aperture does on import.
edit: I notice I'm in a minority here. Without wanting to hijack the thread, what are people using the remote release for? I must be missing something
do you mean a radial blur?
I'm just not sure why it appeared though - amy ideas?
Yongnuo's YN-E3-RT has built-in focus-assist beam, and is the size of the Canon ST-E3-RT. Might just suit your bill, and give RT access to 600EX-RT's to boot.
It always puzzles me why people refer to the AF assist lamp as 'infrared'. By definition, you can't see infrared light. If you're seeing the red light, it's red, not infrared.
