Introduction
The Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT/600EX is a high-output, multi-feature
flash unit for Canon EOS cameras, compat ble with E-TTL II, E-TTL and
TTL autoflash and external flash metering systems. The Speedlite can
be used as an on-camera flash that attaches to the hot shoe of the
camera (normal shooting), and as a master unit or slave unit during
wireless shooting. In addition to these three functions, the Speedlite
also has dust and water resistance equivalent to EOS-1D series
cameras.
Note that the 600EX-RT is equipped with a wireless flash shooting
function that uses either radio transmission or optical transmission. The
600EX is equipped with a wireless flash shooting function that uses
optical transmission only.
Read this instruction manual while also referring to your
camera’s instruction manual.
Before using the Speedlite, read this instruction manual and your
camera’s instruction manual to familiarize yourself with the Speedlite
operations.
Using the Speedlite with a Camera
Using with an EOS digital camera (Type-A camera)
• You can use the Speedlite for easy autoflash shooting in the same
way as a camera’s built-in flash.
Using with an EOS film camera
• When using with an EOS film camera compatible with E-TTL II
and E-TTL autoflash systems (Type-A camera), you can use the
Speedlite for easy autoflash shooting in the same way as a
camera’s built-in flash.
• When using the Speedlite with an EOS film camera compatible
with TTL autoflash system (Type-B camera), see page 116.
* This instruction manual assumes that the Speedlite is used with an
Type-A camera.

Getting Started and
Basic Operations
This chapter describes the preparations before starting
flash shooting and the basic shooting operations.
Cautions for firing continuous flashes
To avoid degrading and damaging the flash head
due to overheating, do not fire more than 20
continuous flashes. After 20 continuous flashes,
allow a rest time of at least 10 min.
If you fire more than 20 continuous flashes, and
then fire the flash again repeatedly in short
intervals, the safety function may activate and
restrict flash firing. While flash firing is restricted,
the recycling time is automatically set to an interval
between approx. 8 and 20 sec. If this happens,
allow a rest time of at least 15 min.
For details, see “Flash Firing Restriction due to
Temperature Increase” on page 106.

Based on new AA/LR6 alkaline batteries and Canon’s testing standards.
The Quick Flash function enables flash shooting before the flash is fully
charged (p.16).
Using AA/LR6 batteries other than the alkaline type may cause improper
battery contact due to the irregular shape of the battery contacts.
If you change the batteries after firing flashes continuously, be aware that
the batteries might be hot.

Press the flash-ready lamp (test flash
button) to fire a test flash.
About Quick Flash
The Quick Flash function enables flash shooting while the flash-ready
lamp is green (before the flash is fully charged).
The guide number is 1/2 to 1/6 of the full output, but it is useful for
shooting with a faster recycling time at a short shooting distance.
Set the drive mode to single shooting. You cannot use Quick Flash
when continuous shooting, FEB, manual flash or stroboscopic flash is
set.
About Auto Power Off
To save battery power, the power will turn off automatically after approx.
90 sec. of idle use. To turn on the Speedlite again, press the camera’s
shutter button halfway, or press the test flash button (flash-ready lamp).
During radio transmission wireless master flash shooting (p.59) or
during linked shooting (p.73), the time until auto power off takes effect is
5 min.
Quick Flash cannot be used when the flash mode is set to <b>.

Turning on the Power
About the Lock Function
By setting the power switch to <a>, you can disable flash’s button
and dial operations. Use this to prevent the flash function settings from
being accidentally changed after you set them.
If you operate a button or dial, <LOCKED> is displayed on the LCD
panel (the functions displayed above function buttons 1 to 4, such as
<[> and <@>, are not displayed).
About the LCD Panel Illumination
When a button or dial is operated, the LCD panel illuminates for 12 sec.
When setting a function, the illumination continues until the setting is
complete.
During normal flash shooting, wireless master flash shooting and
master linked shooting, the LCD panel illuminates in green. If the
Speedlite is a slave unit, it illuminates in orange.
You cannot use the test flash while the camera’s 3/1/2 timer is
operating.
The flash settings are stored even when the power is turned off. To retain
the settings when replacing the batteries, replace the batteries within
1 min. of turning off the power switch and removing the batteries.
When the temperature of the flash head has risen due to continuous flash
firing, the time until auto power off takes effect may increase.
You can fire a test flash while the power switch is set to the <a>
position. Also, when a button or dial is operated, the LCD panel
illuminates.
You can set a beep to sound when the Speedlite is fully charged (C.Fn20/p.99).
You can enable the (Quick) flash to fire when the flash-ready lamp is lit
green during continuous shoo ing (C.Fn-06/p.97).
Auto power off can be disabled (C.Fn-01/p.95).
You can change the duration of the LCD panel illumination (C.Fn-22/
p.100).
You can change the color of the LCD panel illumination (P.Fn-02 to 04/

3 TakeCheck
that the subject is in the
effective flash range.
When you press the shutter button
completely, the flash will fire and the
picture will be taken.
X If a standard flash exposure was
obtained, the flash exposure
confirmation lamp lights for 3 sec.
Even when attached to a camera that supports E-TTL II autoflash
system, <a> is displayed on the LCD panel.
If the flash exposure confirmation lamp does not light or if the subject is
dark (underexposed) when you check the image on the camera’s LCD
monitor, move closer to the subject and shoot again. You can also
increase the ISO speed when using a digital camera.
“Full Auto” refers to <A>, <1>, and <C> shooting modes.
18
Using E-TTL II and E-TTL Autoflash in the Shooting Modes
Just set the camera’s shooting mode to <X> (Shutter-priority AE),
<W> (Aperture-priority AE), or <q> (Manual exposure) and you can
use E-TTL II/E-TTL autoflash.
Select this mode when you want to set the shutter speed manually.
The camera will then automatically set the aperture matching the shutter
speed to obtain a standard exposure.
X
If the aperture display blinks, it means that the background exposure will
be underexposed or overexposed. Adjust the shutter speed until the
aperture display stops blinking.
Select this mode when you want to set the aperture manually.
The camera will then automatically set the shutter speed matching he
aperture to obtain a standard exposure.
If the background is dark, such as in a night scene, a slow sync speed will
be used to obtain a standard exposure of both the main subject and
background. Standard exposure of he main subject is obtained with the
W flash, while a standard exposure of the background is obtained with a long
exposure using a slow shutter speed.
Since a slow shutter speed will be used for low-light scenes, using a
tripod is recommended.
If the shutter speed display blinks, it means that the background
exposure will be underexposed or overexposed. Adjust the aperture until
the shutter speed display stops blinking.
Select this mode if you want to set both the shutter speed and aperture
manually.
q Standard exposure of the main subject is obtained with the flash. The
exposure of the background is obtained with the shutter speed and aperture
combination you set.
If you use the <Z> or <Y> shooting mode, the result will be the same as
using the <V> (Program AE) mode.

Using E-TTL II and E-TTL Autoflash in the Shooting Modes
About Auto Zoom Adjustment to Image Sensor Size
EOS digital cameras have three sizes of image sensors, and the effective
focal length of the mounted lens varies depending on the model. This
flash automatically recognizes the image sensor size of each EOS digital
camera, and automatically adjusts the optimum flash coverage for the
effective focal length of the lens in a range of 20 to 200 mm.
When mounted on a supported camera, <S> is displayed on the LCD panel.
Auto zoom adjustment for image sensor size can be disabled (C.Fn-09/p 98).
About Color Temperature Information Transmission
This function optimizes the white balance during flash shooting by
transmitting the color temperature information to the EOS digital
camera when the flash fires. When you set the camera’s white balance
to <A> or <Q>, the function is enabled automatically.
See the Specifications in your camera’s instruction manual to find out if
it is compatible with this function.
About AF-Assist Beam
When autofocus cannot achieve focus on the subject in low-light or when
contrast is low, the built-in AF-assist beam activates automatically to help
autofocus.The AF-assist beam in 600EX-RT/600EX is compatible with all
EOS cameras’ AF points. The AF-assist beam is compatible with 28mm
and longer focal lengths and its effective range is shown in the table below.

Shooting
This chapter describes advanced shooting operations
using the flash functions.
When the camera’s shooting mode is set to a fully automatic
mode or an Image Zone mode, the operations other than
“Bounce” (p.27, 29), “Wide Panel” (p.30) and “Color Filters”
(p.39) in this chapter are not available. Set the camera’s
shooting mode to V/X/W/q/
5(Creative Zone mode) to
enable all the operations in this chapter.

X The flash exposure compensation
amount is set.
“0.3” indicates 1/3 stops and “0.7”
indicates 2/3 stops.
To cancel flash exposure
compensation, return the
compensation amount to “±0”.
Generally, set an increased exposure compensation for bright subjects
and set a decreased exposure compensation for dark subjects.
If the camera’s exposure compensation is set to 1/2-stop increments, flash
exposure compensa ion will be up to ±3 stops in 1/2-stop increments.
When the flash exposure compensation is set on both the flash and the
camera, the flash setting is given priority.
The flash exposure compensation amount can be set directly with <9>
without pressing the button (C.Fn-13/p.99).
22
g FEB
You can take three shots while automatically changing the flash output.
This is called FEB (Flash Exposure Bracketing). The settable range is
up to ±3 stops in 1/3-stop increments.

2 SetTurn
<9> to set the FEB level, and
press <8>.
X The FEB level is set.
“0.3” indicates 1/3 stops and “0.7”
indicates 2/3 stops.
When used together with flash
exposure compensation, FEB
shooting is performed based on the
flash exposure compensation
amount. When the FEB range
exceeds ±3 stops, the end of the flash
exposure level shows <I> or <J>.
After the three shots are taken, FEB is canceled automatically.
Before shooting with FEB, it is recommended to set the camera’s drive
mode to single shooting and check that the flash is recycled.
You can use FEB together with flash exposure compensation or FE lock.
If the camera’s exposure compensation is set to 1/2-stop increments, flash
exposure compensation will be up to ±3 stops in 1/2-stop increments.
You can set FEB to remain enabled after shooting the three shots (C.Fn03/p.96).
You can change the FEB shooting sequence (C.Fn-04/p 96).
23
7: FE Lock
FE (Flash Exposure) lock locks the correct flash exposure setting for
any part of the scene.
While <a> is displayed on the LCD panel, press the camera’s
<B> button. On cameras without a <B> button, press the <7>
or <P> (AE lock) button.

button.
X The Speedlite fires a preflash, and
the flash output required for the
subject is retained in the memory.
X “FEL” will be displayed in the
viewfinder for 0.5 sec.
Each time you press the <B>
button, a preflash will be fired and the
new flash output required at that time
is retained in the memory.
If a correct exposure cannot be obtained when FE lock is performed, <Q>
blinks in the viewfinder. Move closer to the subject, open the aperture,
and perform FE lock again. You can also increase the ISO speed and
perform FE lock again when using a digital camera.
If the target subject is too small in the viewfinder, FE lock might not be
very effective.
24
c High-speed Sync
With high-speed sync, the flash can synchronize with all shutter
speeds. This is convenient when you want to use aperture-priority AE
for fill-flash portraits of a subject.
Display <c>.
Press function button 4 <Y> to
display <c>.
Check that <F> is lit in the
viewfinder.
When using the flash with EOS cameras compatible with E-TTL and
released up to 2011, high-speed sync is not possible with radio
transmission wireless flash shooting (p.51).
With high-speed sync, the faster the shutter speed, the shorter he
effective flash range will be. Check the effective flash range on the LCD
panel.
If you set a shutter speed that is equal to or slower than the camera’s
maximum flash sync speed, <F> will not be displayed in the viewfinder.
To return to normal flash shooting, press function button 4 <Y> to
turn off <c>.
High-speed sync is not available during stroboscopic flash.
25
r Second-curtain Sync
Shooting with a slow shutter speed and second-curtain sync captures
the trajectory of moving light sources, such as car lights, in a natural
way. The flash fires right before the exposure finishes (shutter closes).
Display <r>.
Press function button 4 <Y> to
display <r>.
Second-curtain sync works well when the camera’s shooting mode is set
to “buLb”.
To return to normal flash shoo ing, press function button 4 <Y> to
turn off <r>.
When the flash mode is set to <a>, the flash fires twice. This first
flash is a preflash to determine the flash output. It is not a malfunction.
Second-curtain sync is not available during wireless flash shooting.
26
Bounce
By pointing the flash head toward a wall or ceiling, the flash will bounce
off the surface before illuminating the subject. This can soften shadows
behind the subject for a more natural-looking shot. This is called bounce
flash.
Set the Bounce Direction
You can turn (bounce) the flash head while pressing the <z>
button as shown. During bounce shooting, the flash icon on the LCD
panel changes to <m>.
When the flash head is turned while the flash coverage is set to <L>
(automatic) (p.29), the flash coverage is fixed at 50 mm and <---> is
displayed on the LCD panel.
You can also set the flash coverage manually (p.29).
If the wall or ceiling is too far away, the bounced flash might be too weak
and result in underexposure.
If the picture appears dark or the flash exposure confirmation lamp does
not light, use a larger aperture opening (smaller f/number) and try again.
You can also increase the ISO speed when using a digital camera.
The wall or ceiling should be plain white for high reflectance. If he
bounce surface is not white, a color cast may result in the picture.

?: Stroboscopic Flash
Calculating the Shutter Speed
In stroboscopic flash, to ensure that the shutter stays open until the end
of the continuous flashes, set the camera with a shutter speed
calculated with the following equation.
Number of flashes ÷ flash frequency = shutter speed
For example, if the number of flashes is set to 10 (times) and flash
frequency to 5 (Hz), set the shutter speed to 2 sec. or longer.
To avoid degrading and damaging the flash head due to overheating, do
not shoot repeatedly with stroboscopic flash more han 10 times. After
shooting 10 times, allow a rest time of at least 15 min.
If you shoot repeatedly more than 10 times, the safety function may
ac ivate and restrict the flash firing. If this happens, allow a rest time of at
least 15 min.
Stroboscopic flash is most effective when combining a highly reflective
subject with a dark background.
Using a tripod, remote switch and external power source is
recommended.
Stroboscopic flash is not possible with 1/1 power or 1/2 power flash.
Stroboscopic flash is also possible when the camera’s shooting mode is
set to “buLb”.
When the number of flashes is displayed as “---”, flashes are fired
continuously until the shutter closes or he charge runs out. The
maximum number of continuous flashes is shown in the table on he
following page.

//.: Flash External Metering
The Speedlite’s built-in external metering sensor measures the flash
reflected from the subject in real time, and stops the flash when the
standard exposure is reached.
“Auto external flash metering” can be used with the EOS digital
cameras released since 2007. “Manual external flash metering” can be
used with all EOS cameras.

Modeling Flash
When the camera’s depth-of-field preview button is pressed, the flash
fires continuously for 1 sec. This is called the modeling flash. It enables
you to see the shadow effects on the subject, and the lighting balance
during wireless flash shooting (p.47, 75).
Press the depth-of-field preview button on the camera.
X The flash fires continuously for 1 sec.
To avoid degrading and damaging the flash head due to overheating, do

If the modeling flash is fired more than 10 times continuously, the safety
function may activate and restrict flash firing. If this happens, allow a rest
time of at least 15 min.
Modeling flash is not possible when using the flash with EOS REBEL
2000/QD, EOS 300/QD or a Type-B camera.
During normal flash shooting, or when using the flash as the master unit in
wireless shooting, you can fire the modeling flash with the test flash button
(C.Fn-02/p.95).

o Color Filter
When the color temperature of the Speedlite and the color temperature
of the light illuminating the subject are different, unnatural colors may
result for the subject background where the flash does not reach.
By using a supplied color filter suitable for the color temperature of the
illuminating light while firing the flash, you can shoot the subject and
background colors with an appropriate white balance. You can also use
commercially-available color filters.

Commercially-available Color Filters
When using a commercially-available 75 x 75 mm filter (3 in. x 3 in.), disable the
automatic filter detection function (P.Fn-05-1/p.102). If you use a commerciallyavailable color filter with P.Fn-05-0 set, <l> may be displayed. Shoot a
picture with the filter attached in the actual shooting environment and set it for
manual white balance. Take the picture with the white balance set to <c>.
The flash guide number decreases when you use a color filter. When
performing manual flash or stroboscopic flash with one of the supplied
color filters, set flash exposure compensation according to the following
guidelines.
[Low] Orange:+1/3 stop, [High] Orange: +1 stop
When P.Fn-05-0 is set, if you use a commercially-available color filter
whose color is close to the supplied color filters, <l> may not be
displayed.
As shown in step 1 on the preceding page, attach he filter all the way to
the position of he filter attachment pins on the holder. If the filter is not
attached correctly, it may not be detected.
When using a filter, the use of full power or continuous flashes is not
recommended. The filter may deform due to the heat of the flash.
The denser the color of the filter, the more likely it is to deform due to the
heat of the flash.
With cameras that are not compatible with color temperature information
transmission (p.20), set the white balance to <c> and shoot in the
same way as described in “Commercially-available Color Filters”.
When using a commercially-available coloring filter, you do not need to
set the white balance to <c>.
Attaching the holder does not affect the flash coverage.
Even if the filter deforms due to he heat of the flash, it does not affect its
compensation effect.
Filters are consumable parts. When the supplied filters have worn out or
degraded, purchase new genuine filters.
If dirt or dust adheres to a filter, wipe it off with a soft, dry cloth.
If the color filter sensor (p.6) or the holder reflection area (p.11) is dirty or
dusty, clean it with a blower or similar tool.

Wireless Flash Shooting:
Radio Transmission
This chapter describes wireless flash shooting using
radio transmission.
For the accessories required for radio transmission
wireless shooting, see the system map (p.104). For
the regions of use, restrictions, and precautions
related to radio transmission, refer to the separate
leaflet.
When using a Speedlite 600EX (without radio
transmission function), the shooting in this chapter is not
available. To shoot with optical transmission wireless
flash, see Chapter 5 (p.75).
When the camera’s shooting mode is set to a fully
automatic mode or an Image Zone mode, the operations
in this chapter are not available. Set the camera’s
shooting mode to V/X/W/q/
5(Creative Zone mode).
The 600EX-RT attached to the camera is called the master
unit, and a 600EX-RT that is wirelessly controlled is called the
slave unit.
You can also wirelessly control the 600EX-RT set as the slave
unit with the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT (sold
separately). For details on setting the master unit functions,
see the transmitter’s instructions.

' Radio Transmission Wireless Flash Shooting
Using a Canon Speedlite (master/slave) with a radio transmission
wireless shooting function makes it easy to shoot with advanced
wireless multiple flash lighting, in the same way as normal E-TTL II/
E-TTL autoflash shooting.
The system is designed so that the settings of the 600EX-RT attached
to the camera (master) are automatically reflected on the 600EX-RT
that is wirelessly controlled (slave). Therefore, you do not need to
operate the slave unit while shooting.
The basic relative positions and operating range are as shown in the
figure. You can then perform wireless E-TTL II/E-TTL autoflash
shooting just by setting the master unit to <a>.

Autoflash Shooting Using Multiple Slave Units
When you need more flash output or you
want to perform lighting more easily, you
can increase the number of slave units
and fire them as a single flash.
To add slave units, use the same
procedure as “Autoflash Shooting Using
One Slave Unit”. Set A, B or C as the
firing group. The flash will not fire if it is
set to D or E.
When the number of slave units is
increased or master flash firing set to
ON, automatic control is performed to
fire all flashes at the same flash output
and ensure that the total flash output
results in the standard exposure.
The master/slave flash coverage is set automatically to 24 mm. You can
also set he flash coverage manually.
You can press the depth-of-field preview button on the camera to fire the
modeling flash (p.38).
When the Speedlite is set as the master unit, the time until auto power off
takes effect is 5 min.
If the slave unit’s auto power off takes effect, press the master unit’s test
flash button (p.16) to turn on he slave unit. Note that the test flash cannot
be fired while the camera’s metering imer is operating.
The autoflash system (E-TTL II/E-TTL) depends on the camera used and
is set automatically. Note that <a> is displayed on the LCD panel for
both systems.
You can change the time until the slave unit’s auto power off takes effect
(C.Fn-10/p.98).
You can enable a beep to sound when the charge of all the slave units is
complete (C.Fn-20/p.99).

About Master Units
You can use two or more master units (master units + slave units =
maximum of 16 units). By preparing multiple cameras with master units
attached, you can shoot by changing cameras while keeping the same
lighting (slave units).
Note that when using two or more master units, the color of the <D>
lamp varies depending on the order in which the power was turned on.
The first master (main master) is green and the second and subsequent
masters (sub-masters) are orange.
If he <D> lamp is red, the connection has not been established. After
checking the transmission channel and wireless radio ID, turn the power of
each master unit off, and turn it on.

Linked Shooting with Radio Transmission
Linked shooting is a function that automatically releases the shutter of a
slave unit camera by linking it to a master unit camera. You can shoot
with linked shooting for up to 16 units, including both master units and
slave units. This is convenient when you want to shoot a subject from
multiple angles at the same time.
To shoot with linked shooting, attach a flash that supports radio
transmission wireless shooting or the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT
to the camera.
Note that when using a camera with an N3 type remote control terminal
that was released up to 2011 as the “slave unit camera,” the “Release
Cable SR-N3” (sold separately) is needed. For details on attaching the

such as he positioning of slave units, the surrounding environment and
weather conditions.
The linked shooting function is the same function as the linked shooting
featured by the WFT series of wireless file transmitters. However, linked
shooting cannot be performed in combination with the WFT series.
Moreover, the release time lag differs from linked shoo ing performed
using the WFT series.
You can use this function as a master unit remote control for linked

Wireless Flash Shooting:
Optical Transmission
This chapter describes wireless flash shooting using
optical transmission.
For the accessories required for optical wireless
transmission, see the system map (p.104).
When the camera’s shooting mode is set to a fully automatic
mode or an Image Zone mode, the operations in this chapter
are not available. Set the camera’s shooting mode to V/X/
W/q/
5(Creative Zone mode).
Wireless flash shooting using op ical transmission is available
with both Speedlite 600EX-RT and Speedlite 600EX.
The 600EX-RT/600EX attached to the camera is called the
master unit, and a 600EX-RT/600EX that is wirelessly
controlled is called the slave unit.
You can also wirelessly control the 600EX-RT/600EX set as
the slave unit with an EOS digital camera equipped with a
master function, and with the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2
(sold separately). For details on setting the master unit
functions, see he instructions of the camera or transmitter.

:Optical Transmission Wireless Flash Shooting
Using a Canon Speedlite (master/slave) with an optical transmission
wireless shooting function makes it easy to shoot with advanced
wireless multiple flash lighting, in the same way as normal E-TTL II/ETTL autoflash shooting.
The system is designed so that the settings of the 600EX-RT/600EX
attached to the camera (master) are automatically reflected on the
Speedlite that is wirelessly controlled (slave). Therefore, you do not
need to operate the slave unit while shooting.
The basic preparations for shooting are shown below. You can then
perform wireless E-TTL II/E-TTL autoflash shooting just by setting the
master unit to <a>.

a: Fully Automatic Wireless Flash Shooting
Autoflash Shooting Using Multiple Slave Units
When you need more flash output or you
want to perform lighting more easily, you
can increase the number of slave units
and fire them as a single flash.
To add slave units, use the same
procedure as “Autoflash Shooting Using
One Slave Unit”. Any firing group (A/B/C)
can be set.
When the number of slave units is
increased or master flash firing set to
ON, automatic control is performed to
fire all flashes at the same flash output
and ensure that the total flash output
results in the standard exposure.
If there is a fluorescent light or PC monitor near a slave unit, he presence of
the light source may cause the slave unit to malfunc ion, causing it to fire
inadvertently.
The master/slave flash coverage is set automatically to 24 mm. You can
also set he flash coverage manually.
You can press the depth-of-field preview button on the camera to fire the
modeling flash (p.38).
If the slave unit’s auto power off takes effect, press the master unit’s test
flash button to turn on the slave unit. Note that the test flash cannot be
fired while the camera’s metering timer is operating.
The autoflash system (E-TTL II/E-TTL) depends on the camera used and
is set automatically. Note that <a> is displayed on the LCD panel for
both systems.
You can change the time until the slave unit’s auto power off takes effect
(C.Fn-10/p.98).
You can set it up so that the AF-assistant beam emitter will not blink when
the slave unit recycling is completed (C.Fn-23/p.100).

a: Fully Automatic Wireless Flash Shooting
Using Fully Automatic Wireless Flash
Flash exposure compensation and other settings set on the master unit
will also be automatically set in the slave unit(s). You do not need to
operate the slave unit. Wireless flash shooting with the following
settings can be performed in the same way as in normal flash shooting.
• Flash exposure compensation

• FEB (E/p.23)
• Manual flash (p.31, 88, 89)

• Stroboscopic flash (p.33, 89)
The flash frequency for stroboscopic flash during optical wireless
transmission shooting can be set from 1 Hz to 199 Hz (settings from 250 Hz
to 500 Hz are not available).
<@>, <Y> and <E> are displayed when func ion button 4 is

About Master Units
You can use two or more master units. By preparing multiple cameras
with master units attached, you can shoot by changing cameras while
keeping the same lighting (slave units).

a: Wireless Multiple Flash Shooting with Flash Ratio
Autoflash Shooting with Two Slave Groups
You can divide the slave units into two
firing groups, A and B, and adjust the

Slave Group Control
If you need more flash output or wish to
perform more sophisticated lighting, you
can increase the number of slave units.
Simply set an additional slave unit to the
firing group (A, B or C) whose flash
Gr = A Gr = A
Gr = A
output you want to increase. There is no
restriction on the number of units.
For example, if you set a firing group with three slave units to <4>,
the three units are treated and controlled as a single firing group A with
a large flash output.
Firing group A
To fire the three firing groups A, B and C at the same time, set
<^>. With the <%> setting, firing group C does
not fire.
If you shoot with firing group C pointing directly toward the main subject,
overexposure may result.
In some EOS film cameras that support E-TTL autoflash, you cannot
perform multiple flash wireless shooting with a flash ratio set ing.
The flash ratio of 8:1 to 1:1 to 1:8 is equivalent to 3:1 to 1:1 to 1:3 (1/2stop increment) when converted to number of stops.
The details of the flash ratio set ings are as follows.

when flash firing is restricted.
106
Troubleshooting Guide
If a problem occurs with the flash, first refer to this Troubleshooting
Guide. If this Troubleshooting Guide does not resolve the problem,
contact your dealer or nearest Canon Service Center.
Normal Shooting
Power does not turn on or the flash does not fire.
Make sure that the batteries are installed in the correct orientation
(p.14).
Insert the mounting foot into the camera’s hot shoe all the way, slide the
lock lever to the right, and secure the Speedlite to the camera (p.15).
If the flash recycling time takes 30 sec. or longer, replace the batteries
(p.14).
Even when using external power, insert batteries into the Speedlite
(p.14).
If the electrical contacts of the Speedlite and camera are dirty, clean the
contacts (p.6).
The power turns off by itself.
The Speedlite’s auto power off has activated. Press the shutter button
halfway, or press the test flash button (p.16).
The picture is underexposed or overexposed.
If there was a highly reflective object (glass window, etc.) in the picture,
use FE lock (p.24).
If the subject looks very dark or very bright, set flash exposure
compensation (p.22).
When high-speed sync is set, the effective flash range is shorter. Move
closer to the subject (p.25).
107
Troubleshooting Guide
The bottom of the picture looks dark.
You were too close to the subject. Move away from the subject.
When shooting within 1 m (3.3 ft.) of the subject, set the bounce
position down by 7°.
Remove the lens hood if attached.
The picture periphery looks dark.
Set the flash coverage to the automatic setting (p.29).
When using the manual setting for the flash coverage, set a flash
coverage that is wider than the shooting angle of view (p.30).
Check that C.Fn-21-1 is not set (p.100).
The picture is very blurred.
When the shooting mode is set to <W> and the scene is dark, slow
sync is enabled automatically (the shutter speed becomes slower). Use
a tripod, or set the shooting mode to <V> or fully automatic mode
(p.19). Note that you can also set the sync speed in [Flash sync.
speed in Av mode] (p.44).
The flash coverage is not set automatically.
Insert the mounting foot into the camera’s hot shoe all the way, slide the
lock lever to the right, and secure the Speedlite to the camera (p.15).
Set the flash coverage to <L> (Automatic) (p.29).
108
Troubleshooting Guide
Radio Transmission Wireless Shooting
Wireless shooting does not work.
When using a Speedlite 600EX (without radio transmission function),
wireless shooting using radio transmission is not available. Use optical
transmission wireless shooting.
The slave unit does not fire.
Set the master unit to <'> <M> and set the slave unit to <'>
<x> (p.52).
Set the transmission channels and wireless radio IDs of the master unit
and slave unit to the same numbers (p.52 - 54).
Check that the slave unit is within the transmission range of the master
unit (p.48).
The camera’s built-in flash cannot be used as the master unit in radio
transmission wireless shooting.
The slave unit does not fire or unexpectedly fires at full output.
Run the channel scan and set the channel with the best radio reception
signal (p.54).
Position the slave unit in clear view of the master unit, without obstacles
between them.
Face the slave unit’s front toward the master unit.
Pictures are overexposed.
When using autoflash shooting with three firing groups A, B and C, do
not fire with firing group C pointed toward the main subject (p.63).
When shooting with a different flash mode setting for each firing group,
do not fire with multiple firing groups set to <a> or </>
pointed toward the main subject (p.67).
109
Troubleshooting Guide
<k> is displayed.
Set the shutter speed 1 stop slower than the flash sync speed (p.51).
Cannot release from a slave unit.
When an EOS camera which was released up to 2011, has an N3 type
remote control terminal and is compatible with E-TTL II/E-TTL autoflash
is used to perform remote release from a slave unit or when it has been
set as the slave unit during linked shooting, the “Release Cable SR-N3”
(sold separately) is necessary (p.68, 70, 104).
Linked Shooting
Uneven exposure occurs./The standard exposure is not obtained.
If you fire multiple flash units at the same time during linked shooting,
the appropriate exposure may not be obtained or uneven exposure
may result. It is recommended to set only one Speedlite to fire or to use
self-timer to space out the timing of the flashes.
110
Troubleshooting Guide
Optical Transmission Wireless Shooting
The slave unit does not fire.
Set the master unit to <:> <M> and set the slave unit to
<:> <x> (p.78).
Set the transmission channels of the master unit and slave unit to the
same numbers (p.78).
Check that the slave unit is within the transmission range of the master
unit (p.76).
Point the wireless sensor on the slave unit toward the master unit
(p.76).
If the master unit and slave unit are too close, the transmission may not
operate properly.
When using the camera’s built-in flash as the master unit, raise the
camera’s built-in flash, and set the wireless function in [Built-in flash
func. setting] on the camera’s menu screen.
The master unit’s flash fires.
Even when master flash firing is set to OFF <d>, the master flash fires
a small flash to control the slave unit with optical transmission (p.79).
Pictures are overexposed.
When using autoflash shooting with three firing groups A, B and C, do
not fire with firing group C pointed toward the main subject (p.87).
