600EX-RT GR Mode
« on: November 25, 2012, 08:09:58 AM »
Good day,  i have a little flash question...tried testing but still not convinced!

So I have 3 X 600EX-RT (all configured on radio transmission)

1st one is on the camera body acting as a master
2nd one is slave GROUP A
3rd one is slave GROUP B

Question:  When in setup like this...Is the master considered in any of the groups? or does it act on it's own?
meaning if I play around with the master flash exposure does it affect cameras on group A and B?

regards

I have three flashes as well and I have them set up as A master and group B and C as slaves. I don't know if the master can be any other group. All I know is that when I adjust the settings for group A then the master on camera flash is affected.

Thx all...after closely reading manual found the answer on page 55.  Indeed master is group A

What you read on page 81 is true for any slave flash(600EX-RT)..when you have only one flash to trigger.  Thing is that you do not have access to D and E when you only have 1 flash.

So in summary, on the slave (for a setup with one flash) you can choose to put it in either A, B or C

hope this clarifies.
