Canon Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2

st-e2
Review Date: May 17, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Small, works very well in low light, simple, easy to change ratios quickly with two flashes
Cons:
Not reliable in bright light, only line of sight in normal light, worst of all no 2nd curtain synch

Nice gizmo which I use mainly for getting a 580ex off camera without cords which tangle with everything else. In low light the communication with the flash is flawless as the IR control bounces pretty much wherever the flash is.

I have also used this to control two Speedlites (580ex, 430ex) and it worked well, especially as you can quickly change the ratios.

The one major flaw (are you listening Canon?) is that there does not seem to be any way of using this this and getting 2nd curtain synch.
