Join Levi Sim for an in-depth discussion in this video Activating wireless slave mode on Speedlites, part of Flash Photography: Canon Speedlites.
- Each of these speed lights can be used…as a wireless slave.…I can place them elsewhere in the room…to be lighting up my picture without…being connected to the camera.…Let me show you really quickly…how to enter that slave mode…on each of the models.…Let's start with the 600 EXRT,…and this would also be similar for the 600 EX,…it just won't have the radio transmitter options…that I'm starting with.…And I'm holding it up next to the…STE three transmitter, so that we can see when it links.…
Just enter wireless mode right over here.…And right now it's master, let's switch…one more to slave, and the screen turns orange…to indicate that we're in slave mode.…Now, press menu one,…until you get to channel.…Press the channel button, and now,…dial it over to 15, so that it matches the transmitter,…and the flash will link up.…There we go, green light.…
We're ready to fire with this.…As it happens, with the 600 EXRT,…even if we're not using the radio transmitter,…and we're using an optical system instead,…this is still ready to go.…

Levi Sim helps you master the controls, including the camera and flash modes, flash modifiers, and accessories, and creative options offered by a speedlight: soft light, hard light, and bounced light. By the end of this course, you'll be able to make great light in any situation with your speedlight.
