Canon has announced the new Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT(Ver.2) – an update of the popular ST-E3-RT flash trigger. Enabling wireless flash synchronization and control of multiple Speedlites (positioned up to 30m away), this new transmitter gives professional Canon photographers greater creative freedom whether you're shooting in a studio or out on location.

It supports key features of the recently introduced Canon Speedlite EL-1 and also enables new capabilities when using previously launched RT Speedlites – including wireless (radio) second-curtain synchronization.
