Canon ST-E3-RT Speedlight Controller
« on: May 09, 2015, 01:47:38 PM »
I am looking (not finding) a firmware update for the ST-E3-RT controller.  My hope is that Canon has allowed the controller to use the 600 RT flash in 2nd curtain sync.  I would think that for 1000.00 dollars US you would be able to have some creative capabilities with the system.
 Is it possible to use 2nd curtain sync using the ST-E3-RT controller with the 600RT flashes?
 I cant find any way to access the feature other than having the flash on the camera body.

You're not missing anything, the feature just isn't available.

I'd like the feature, but no. 

A while back I did a 2nd curtain of camera by directing the flash head at an umbrella to my side and the umbrella angled half towards me and half towards the subject.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

No can do, they reserved that for the upcoming 660ex-rt flashes with the new ettl3 protocol :-)

However, as you probably know the Yongnuo clone of the trigger supports 2nd curtain remote flash *but* only in flash m mode *and* no group mode available *and* the thing is rather unreliable. However, I've seen some samples with 2nd curtain remote staged ports shots, so if that's what you're looking, there you go.
