BTS video: using the Canon 600EX-RT Speedlites
In my review of the Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT, I raved about the ease of use of the new speedlite by Canon that has built-in radio transmitters. The same with my subsequent review Canon ST-E3-RT Transmitter. This system is going to have huge impact!
The behind-the-scenes video clip as I set every thing up, is of the photo session with Molly K where I used Canon 600EX-RT Speedlite (B&H / Amazon), and the Canon ST-E3 Speedlite Transmitter (B&H / Amazon), during an actual shoot. You can actually hear the thought-process.

I look forward to your Tangents every month. It is always filled with well thought out advice, great techniques I can put to use right away. I recently bought 3 of the New Canon 600RT flashes and was considering the purchase of the ST-E3-RT. Watching this month’s featured video solidified my decision. Seems like the real deal. Your images of that shoot
were wonderful. Thanks for sharing it. Your generosity is very much appreciated.

Great video, thanks for sharing. What was the name of the little flash mounts that you used on the small light stands?

Sorry Neil I just saw the Frio cold shoe mount above. It looks like it is discountinued by B&H, do you have any other suggestions for a good cold shoe mount for light stands?
