Canon Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2 Review

Good, Basic

Verdict: This is a good basic optical transmitter. It does everything you would expect EXCEPT it does not have group C. If that matters, then this will not fit the bill. There is no earthly reason why Canon should have left that out - more the pity because otherwise this is a great little device.

It's an excellent trigger for 550EX

Pros: quiet, Good Exposure performance, Superior build quality
Verdict: I have 3 550EX and 1 580EX for photo table setup with Harbor Digital Diffuser on each unit. This trigger works quite well with 1DS Mark-2 and flash setup I have. I don't have any AF cover fall off issue. And the hot shoe mount works quite good with a locking pin.

A brief warning to potential users!

Pros: Consistent, Lightweight, Reliable indoors
Cons: Old technology, Unuseable outdoors
Verdict: The potential user should be aware that this unit will only work reliably indoors - where the light can reflect from surfaces. Since it operates on infrared light, it really needs line-of-sight alignment to operate with certainty - but reflected light as described gives pretty reliable results.

Canon ST-E2 Speedlite Transmitter review by gadgetguy

Pros: it works as advertised, can be used as AF assist
Cons: uses expensive batteries
Verdict: Works excellently as part of Canon's wireless flash system, providing consistent results. It does go through batteries pretty fast (and they're not cheap) so it would be nice to have it use reachrgeable ones.
