Any news on the Yongnuo Canon 600EX RT Clone
« on: April 25, 2014, 10:37:51 AM »
I am thinking of buying the YN565 but am wondering whether I should hold out and wait for their 600EX RT Clone or has that hit development/ patent problems? Will we ever see it?

60D - 17-85mm is USM - 70-300mm is USM

I'm pretty sure we'll see it sooner or later, but after personally experiencing the reliability problems of their controller I would speculate that they have delayed the rt project until they get this problem fixed at least to a less embarrassing extent - an unreliable controller with 600rt units is bad enough, but the horror would multiply if you also add unreliable flashes.
