Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Flash : Review by Cocoa Beach Surfer "SCocoaBeach"
This flash is everything that I have been hoping for. As a professional photographer who shoots a ton of low-light weddings and events and works nearly exclusively with bounced flash, this is the perfect flash for me, and every bit worth the price. That said, if you are an amateur, or prefer to work with direct flash or flash fill, you would be just fine with an older, less expensive model.
Because of the way I use the flash, it takes way more power than simple direct flash. Don't get me wrong, I LOVED my 580 exII's, but this flash blows them out of the water. I used to overheat the 580 CONSTANTLY, and was always having to switch back and forth between two or three flashes to give them time to cool off. Worse, there was no indicator to tell me whether the flashes were out of batteries, or if they had simply overheated and needed a cooling off period. The 600 solves all of that. It has indicators to tell you if the unit is overheating or if the batteries are low, and takes SO much longer to overheat. I shot a 5-hour party with lot of dancing on Saturday night, and only had to swap out my flash twice the entire night. With the old models, I would be changing flashes every 20 minutes to half an hour by the end of the evening. They cycle time is amazing as well, and the menus allow for so much customization, plus are a lot easier to adjust.
The RT capabilities are great we well, though I haven't had a chance to test them yet, and I love the fact that I can zoom this one in to 200mm to throw a tighter spot of light, where the 580 stopped at 105mm. The built in CTO gel is an awesome addition as well, and looks so much more professional than a janky piece of plastic velcro'd to the end of the flash.
All in all, I love this flash, and think it is totally worth the price. I'll be trading in my last two 580 exII's for another one of these, and can't wait for the start of wedding season now.
