According to this list from Canon, the radio-enabled Speedlite 600EX-RT and ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter can be used in 58 countries. The list was published in March, 2012 at the time the new Speedlite system was introduced.

Many additional countries allow the use of devices in the 2.4 GHz ISM (Industrial, Scientific, & Medical) radio bands. So, perhaps the list of countries in which the 600EX-RT and ST-E3-RT can be used will grow.

5 Responses to Where In the World Can You Use Canon’s 600EX-RT Speedlite

  1. Heya Syl,
    Thank you so much for posting this, as well as all the other great blogs.

    Do you know how one would go about finding out which additional countries will enable the transmitter? For example, I am thinking of going to Gulf Photo Plus for the first time, and it would be silly to show up with all the 600exs and transmitter and not be able to use them. Also, I do a lot of work in Cuba, where basically nothing functions properly! I was having so many problems with the 580exs w/ Pocket Wizards that I was really looking forward to the reaping the great benefits of the new system.

    Many thanks, Eric

    I’m so grateful to my government to find out they allow me to do this. And even though cameras can be used for creating child pornography the citizens of the United Kingdom are still just about permitted to use cameras. I hope it stays that way for you too.

    Add the Dominican Republic to the list of successful Canon 600EX-RT and ST-E3 Radio off camera flash.
