YongNuo have revealed images of the reportedly very soon to be available YNE3-RX radio receiver unit.
The potentially game changing receiver unit is compatible with the Canon RT radio system, now opening the system up to include legacy ETTL slave flash units like the previous Canon 580EX II.
Also allowing manual studio lights or speedlites to be fired when using RT transmitter units as well.
A lack of separate receiver unit has previously been the biggest limitation to the industry leading Canon RT radio flash system, so the new YNE3-RT may be a game changing development.
YongNuo are bridging together 2 of Canon’s completely separate, and previously incompatible, radio flash systems with the YNE3-RT receiver, so this is no small achievement.

The YNE3-RX will open the Canon RT system up to legacy ETTL flashes like the YN-568EX II shown below, and as well as previous Canon ETTL flashes like the 580EX II, 430EX II, 320EX, etc.
As well as firing manual studio lights and speedlights via the YNE3-RX’s PC sync port.
