Cool, mine came with 1.07 loaded form the factory....
I wish there was better remote trigger / linked shooting.

I wish I would like to be able to have linked trigger/shooting and also Fiore the remote flashes at the same time.


Anyone have there support e-mail so I can send them a suggestion of that.

It is interesting, my ST-E3-RT does fire the remote flashes when you use remote triggering. My YN-E3-RT does not.

Doesn't the Canon version have to be fired from a 600 flash though and not the main camera?
Maybe I'm setting things up wrong.

There is a fundamental error in his write up, sync speed with both the ST-E3-RT and the YN-E3-RT is EXACTLY the same. You can use sync speeds above 1/125 with the ST-E3-RT, you just get a little warning symbol (though with the YN you don't get the warning signal). In my tests the shutter shadow is exactly the same for both triggers.

Ok there are two similar but different functions, one is Remote Shooting, the other Linked Shooting.

Remote Shooting is where you trigger the camera via a camera mounted ST, YN, or 600 from a remote 600, this works the same with both the ST and YN, APART from the YN will not fire any of the flashes, including the flash you trigger with. The Canon ST or 600 will fire all the flashes. Neither the ST nor the YN can be the handheld triggering device. With my firmware version.

Linked Shooting is where you have two, or more, cameras, each can have an ST, YN, or 600  mounted and when you press the shutter on one camera the other cameras will also fire. I haven't tested Linked Shooting with the YN.

Edit: I have now tested Linked shooting with the YN and it works exactly the same as the ST or a 600. I have not tested Linked Shooting with the flashes set to fire as the shutters are not perfectly syncronised so I see little point to the "feature".

aww ok, I'll have a second look at it, my idea was to have main camera with remote flash, tue secondary camera would fire to have other angle or to have that behind the scenes shot which would not have the correct lighting.  I guess my other though then would be to fire everything from a third trigger.....hummm just thinking out loud.

You can do that. But only with one on camera flash, not remote flashes and groups.

Set your main camera with on camera flash to Linked Shooting Master. You have to set P.Fn-07 to 1. Set your second camera with the YN-E3-RT on Linked Shooting to Slave. You are good. When you press your main camera shutter the flash will fire and the remote camera will be triggered. The flash will not fire in sequence with the remote cameras shutter, only the main cameras shutter, they are not perfectly syncronised.

To get into Linked Shooting press and hold the lightening bolt button.

When you setup the cameras like that you get the flash menu and the REL button, with that you can trigger the remote by itself by just pressing the REL button on the main cameras 600. Of course f you press the shutter button both cameras are triggered.

To get it to work with remote flashes and groups you'd need a separate trigger for the remote camera, a $20 set of Yongnuo RF-603's would work fine.

Just ordered one.
I want to have the group - function on my beloved 1D4.
The AF- lines I saw on a webpage, looks strange, very different from the 550, 580 or 600.
I am very curious!
