Wireless Flash Shooting
The Orlit ST-RT makes it easy to shoot using advanced
wireless multiple flash lighting. Any flash, speedlight or
monolight compatible with the Canon RT radio system
can be controlled with this transmitter, the same way as
normal E-TTL II / E-TTL autoflash exposure.
The system is designed so that the settings of the transmitter attached to the camera (master) are automatically
reflected on the Speedlite that is wirelessly controlled
(slave). Therefore, you do not need to adjust 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 < ETTL >.

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.
NOTE:
1. To avoid degrading and damaging the flash head of the
slave unit due to overheating do not shoot repeatedly
with stroboscopic flash more than 10 times. After shooting 10 times, allow a rest time of atleast 15 min.
2. If you shoot repeatedly more than 10 times, the slave
units safety function may activate and restrict the flash
firing.If this happens, allow a rest time of at least 15 min.
20
TIPS:
1. Stroboscopic flash is most effective when combining a
highly reflective subject with a dark background.
2. Using a tripod and remotes which is recommended.
3. Stroboscopic flash shooting is not possible with 1/1
power or 1/2 power flash.
4. Stroboscopic flash shooting is also possible when the
cameras shooting mode is set to “buLb”
5. When the number of flashes is displayed as ”---”, flashes are fired continuously until the shutter closes or the

Shooting with a Different Flash Mode for Each
Group <GR Mode >
When using an EOS digital camera released since 2012,
such as the EOS-1DX, you can shoot with a different
flash mode set for each firing group, with up to 5 groups
(A/B/C/D/E).
The flash modes that can be set are 1) E-TTLII/E-TTLautoflash, 2) Manual flash and 3) Auto external flash metering.
When the flash mode is 1) or 2), exposure is controlled
to result in standard exposure for the main subject as a
single group. This function is for advanced users who are
very knowledgeable and experienced in lighting.
NOTE:
Wireless flash shooting using the < GR > flash mode
cannot be performed with cameras released up to 2011.
Shooting with up to 3 groups (A/B/C) is set.
22
1. S
et the flash mode to < GR > Press the < MODE >
button on the master unit and set the flash mode to
< GR >.
2. S

power setting for each group member.
NOTE:
When the flash mode of the firing group is set to < ETTL
> or < Ext.A >, exposure is controlled to obtain a standard
exposure for the main subject as a single group. If you
shoot with multiple firing groups pointing toward the
main subject, overexposure may result.
TIPS:
1. The firing groups to be fired do not need to be consecutive; for example, A/C/E can be set.
2. W
hen two or more units are set to master, the master
unit with the < LINK > lamp lit in green is the one that
fires.
3. Y

the linked shooting mode. Set the Speedlites used in
linked shooting in the same way. When pressing the <
COMMAND MODE > button to change the setting of a
unit from “Slave unit” to ”Master unit,” the other transmitters (or Speedlites) that were set to ”Master unit”
until then automatically switch to”Slave unit”.
5. S
et up the slave unit cameras. Check that the < LINK >
lamp of the slave unit is lit in green.
Set up all the slave unit cameras within approximately
30m / 98.4 ft. of the master unit camera.
6. T
ake the picture. Check that the < LINK > lamp of the
master unit is lit in green and take the picture. The
slave unit cameras are released in coordination with
the master unit camera. After shooting with linked
shooting, the < LINK > lamp of the slave unit is briefly
lit in orange.
NOTE:
1. Shooting with manual focus is recommended for the
slave unit cameras.If focus cannot be achieved with
auto focus, linked shooting is not possible with the
corresponding slave unit camera.
2. T
here is a short time lag between the release of the
slave unit camera and the release timing of the master
unit camera. Perfectly simultaneous shooting is not
possible.
3. 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.
4. W
hen [ Flash firing ] in [ Flash function settings ] is set
to [ Disabled ],linked shooting cannot be performed.
25
5. When performing linked shooting in the Live View state,
set [ Silent LV shoot.] on the master camera menu to [
Disabled ]. If [ Mode 1 ] or [ Mode 2 is set, the slave unit
cameras will not be released.
6. The transmission distance may be shorter depending on
the conditions such as the positioning of slave units, the
surrounding environment and weather conditions.
7. 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 shooting performed
using the WFT series.

Troubleshooting Guide
If a problem occurs with the transmitter, first refer to
thisTroubleshooting Guide. If this Troubleshooting Guide
does not resolve the problem, contact Orlit Customer
Service.
The slave unit does not fire
1. Check that the slave unit supports radio transmission
wireless flash shooting.
2. Set the slave unit to < Radio signal >, < Slave Mode >.
3. S
et the transmission channels and wireless radio IDs of
the master unit and slave unit to the same numbers.
We reccomend using ID “0000”
4. C
heck that the slave unit is within the transmission
range of the master unit.
The picture is underexposed or overexposed.
1. If there was a highly reflective object (glass window,
etc.)in the picture, use FE lock.
2. If the subject looks very dark or very bright, set flash
exposure compensation.
3. W
hen high-speed sync is set, the effective flash range
is shorter.Position the slave unit closer to the subject.
28
4. W
hen using auto flash shooting with three firing
groups A, B and C, do not fire with firing group C
pointed toward the main subject.
5. When shooting with a different flash mode setting for
each firing group, do not fire with multiple firing groups
set to < ETTL > or < Ext.A > pointed toward the main
subject.
The picture is very blurred.
When the shooting mode is set to < AV > and the scene
is dark, slow sync is enabled automatically (the shutter
speed becomes slower). Use a tripod, or set the shooting
mode to < P > or fully automatic mode.Note that you
can also set the sync speed in [ Flash sync. speed in Av
mode ].
A Canon Speedlite Release Cable SR-N3 is necessary to
use inconjunction with Canon cameras made before 2012
to connect for ETTL autoflash as a remote release on a
slave unit or during linked shooting.
