Master Trigger for Canon 6D
« on: March 29, 2013, 08:48:20 PM »
I'm received my 6D today and having a blast with it.  I also have a 430 EX II that I want to use as a off camera flash. From what I've read so far the options I have ares use a 90EX as the master (trigger) or a  Yongnuo YN622C ETTL Wireless Transciever Triggers. I really don't want flash coming off the camera, is there a way to control the 90EX so that it doesn't flash?  If there are any other options in those price I'd like to hear from you.

Cameras:  5D MK III, 6D,   Lenses: Canon EF 70-200mm MK II f/2.8| Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 | Canon EF 50mm f/1.4, Tamron 24-70 VC

The 90EX as a master transmits with the main flash tube.  For the Canon IR triggering without visible light, you'd need the ST-E2 (they're available used at reasonable prices).

Thank you sir, no need for me to look any further.  Order placed on Amazon for the Canon ST-E2 it will arrive on Tuesday.

Thank you again.,
