YongNuo have announced a coming Canon RT radio compatible receiver unit named the YNE3-RX !
Could this YNE3-RX be the holy grail of RT receiver units, allowing previous non RT radio TTL flashes like the Canon 580EX and YN-568EX etc to be controlled by the RT system transmitter units?
UPDATE – More details are now posted on the Chinese YongNuo Website –
YNE3-RX Wireless Flash Receiver
- Supports Flash modes: ETTL, M, M ULTI
- Supports single contact flash trigger
- Supports remote shutter function, test firing
- Supports PC output interface
- Supports USB upgrades
- Supports single contact lead flashing
Compatible transmitter (master unit):
YONGNUO – YN-E3-RT, YN600EX-RT,
CANON – ST-E3-RT, 600EX-RT
Compatible ETTL flash list:
CANON – 600EX-RT, 580EX II, 430EX II, 320EX, 270EX II
YONGNUO – YN-568EX II, YN-565C, YN-468C II, YN-467C II, YN-465C
The new YNE3-RX receiver will likely mark the most significant addition or change to the RT system so far, opening it up to be used with many other lights than just the current Canon 600EX-RT or YongNuo YN600EX-RT speedlites.
There is no indication of when the YNE3-RX may be available. Though YongNuo are obviously aware this announcement alone will be the reassurance many people need before considering buying into the Canon RT system, with flashes like YongNuo’s recent flagship YN600EX-RT.
