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.
I picked one up at $50 from 6th ave... but I'm regretting the purchase... I did want something that would act as fill flash...
I have 2 yongnuo 622's... so I guess I could buy another... 1 on each of my two 580 exii's... and then one on my 5d mkiii body... with the 90ex as a flash and not as a master... but not it just seems freaking convoluted...
I'm annoyed with myself. I'll maybe just sell it for $50 and be done with it. No harm... no foul... no loss.
