Yongnuo YN600EX-RT II Canon Speedlite / Flash
The Yongnuo YN600EX-RT-II is one of Yongnuo's most professional speedlites available. It is fully compatible with Canon's ST-E3-RT & Yongnuo YN-E3-RT e-TTL flash triggers. Besides that, it is abundant with most advanced and modern features such as off-camera TTL (camera dependent), high speed sync (HSS), wide power & zoom range and e-TTL-II auto mode. All this in a robust and highly durable body. The newest upgrades now include on-camera master-mode to control additional YN600 and Canon 600EX flashes. The recycle time has been improved as well.
Unfortunately, this flash is not compatible with the Canon 2000D, 4000D, and 250D. Please consider our range of Godox flashes and Xpro/X1T/X2T flash triggers if you have any of those cameras

Fully Compatible with Canon ST-E3-RT & Yongnuo YN-E3-RT Flash Trigger
The Yongnuo is fully functional with Canon's e-TTL system. TTL is an automated system in which the camera determines the correct flash output for any given shot.
- Flash Exposure Compensation
The Yongnuo has a EV range of +/- 5 stops and can be adjusted in 1/3rd stop increments/decrements.
- Auto-Focus Assist Beams
The assist laser beams help the camera to focus in darkness.
- Wireless TTL
The Yongnuo is fully compatible with Nikon and Canon's wireless TTL optic system. This technology makes off-camera flash possible without the need for cables or radio controllers. The Yongnuo can be set in groups (A, B or C) and to its own unique channel. The Yongnuo YN600EX-RT can be used as a Master flash to trigger multiple flashes in this mode.
This feature is only compatible with select cameras. Please see our compatibility guide to see if your camera can be used in this mode.
- High Speed Sync (HSS)
Use the Yongnuo with shutter speeds up to 1/8000th of a second. Using HSS makes it possible to capture rapid motion, to shoot under broad daylight and to use wide apertures. Any flash without HSS capabilities is restricted to a camera's flash sync speed, which is normally only a 1/250th of a second.
- Auto Zoom
The Yongnuo provides an auto zoom feature which can change the angle of illumination to match the focal length of your lens. The range is 24mm to 200mm on a full frame camera but the Yongnuo will automatically adjust the zoom for smaller frame cameras too. TTL Enabled
- High flash output - Guide Number 58 (ISO100;105mm)
The Yongnuo has plenty of flash of output. In fact, it's pretty much on par with many OEM flagship models. Having plenty of flash power makes it ideal for off-camera flash at events, weddings, on-location or in studio.
- Wide power range - (1/1 to 1/128th)
The Yongnuo has 8 levels of power adjustments with 29 levels of fine-tuning. The adjustments can be set in full stops, 1/3rd stops or 1/2th stops. This gives you ample control over the precise amount of flash you need.
- Optical Slave Sensor
The Yongnuo can be triggered off-camera using another flash. The light sensitive sensor is located behind the red screen upfront the Yongnuo. The Yongnuo can also be set to ignore any TTL pre-flashes in S2 mode.
Multi mode fires a series of rapid flashes to produce a stroboscopic effect. It is often used to show different phases of movement in one photograph. The amount of flashes and frequency can be adjusted.
- Overheat warning systems
The Yongnuo has a few nifty features to avoid any overheating problems. It automatically slows down the recycle time to allow the flash to cool down or it will switch off completely when the flash is starting to overheat.
- External Firing Interface
The Yongnuo has a metal screw-in PC sync socket for standard PC sync cables.
- External Power Source
The Yongnuo can be used with select external battery packs. Compatible models - Phottix 8-Battery Pack, JJC Battery Pack CP-E4 and Canon Battery Pack CP-E4.
- Power Saving & Low Power Warning
The Yongnuo has a custom sleep mode which can be set on or off. A "Power Low" icon will display when the batteries are nearing depletion.
- Fast refresh and firing rate
The Yongnuo has a recycle time of about 3 seconds on full power (with fully charged batteries). To increase the recycle time to about 1.2 seconds on full power an external battery pack is needed. The recycle is much faster using flash outputs of half power or less. The Yongnuo is also capable of firing at 8 frames per second using a flash output of under an 1/8th output.
- Large LCD display
Large LCD display makes for clearer and easier viewing. The LCD backlight switches on every time a button is pressed on the flash. You don't need to switch a dedicated button on and off before making any adjustments. The duration of the backlight can be set in the Custom Functions.
- Moveable flash head
The head of the Yongnuo can be tilted and rotated in many directions. Vertical - -7 ~ 90 degrees. Horizontal - 0 ~ 270 degrees. This makes bouncing flash off walls and ceiling possible and a lot simpler.
- Sound Indicator
Sound prompts will warn against overheating and indicate when the flash has recycled. This feature can be switched on and off.
