Canon SE-E3-RT and Sekonic L-478DR together?
« on: June 05, 2013, 11:27:26 AM »
Has anyone confirmed if the new Canon SE-E3 transmitter and Speedlite 600EX's will work (trigger/adjust) with a Sekonic L-478DR?

I've contacted Sekonic via their site, but almost a week an no reoly from them.  :(
5DIII, 1Dx, 50D, lots of lenses...always room for 1 more.

I did contact them a couple of months ago and unfortunately, it will not work with the 600s. Only PWs. They also said they have no plans to update its firmware to accommodate the 600s. I guess we'll just have to wait for the next gen :(

Canon only plays nice with Canon RT. I called Sekonic and asked if they were planning to build a Canon friendly RT module and they said no. They are in bed with PW. That was 4 months ago and you never know.

When in manual I carry my STE3 and L-358 with me. Flashes in group mode and I use the test button on the STE3 to fire the flashes. I set them all at each location using this method. When done I put the STE3 back on my camera.

I modified the foot stand and attached a spare BR connector.
