So, if I get an ST-E3 and 600 EX, I know I can trigger the 600 via radio frequency from the St-E3, but can the 600 still trigger a 580EXII via optical? Or, does the ST-E3 become the master and 600 the slave, thus incapable of triggering the 580? In other words, do I have to replace BOTH of my 580's with 600's in order to have a two flashes off camera set-up?
Sorry if a dumb question, but I'm a flash novice trying to make the best of what I can get. Currently using 580 Ex II and 580 EX with Radio Popper JrX system which works, but manual only.
Unfortunately you are looking at a two flash replacement at some point if you want to go to ETTL, HSS, or ratio via canon Radio control. I am at the same cross roads with my 3 flash setup and having a lot of trouble justifying a $2000+ expense for this hobby. So for now I am hanging tight with my 580 EX II, 2-430 EX II, and PW TT1, TT5s, and Ac3.
Canon needs to come out with a 450 EX/RT at around $375 each or have a ST-E3 II with IR support.
