Good, Basic

  • Excerpt: 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 is really easy to use and works seamlessly as it should.

Unreliable

  • Excerpt: Was so excited to have a transmitter that worked in TTL mode. Tested it with great results, but on my first shoot, it worked about 30-40 percent of the time. Was extremely frustrating to have no idea why it was working. Was indoors (heard it didn't work well in direct sunlight) and had the speedlight positioned on a softbox a few feet in front of me and a litle bit to the right. After a few days, I finally figured out what I was doing "wrong.

So Far no problems

  • Excerpt: I use this to fire my Canon 430 EX flash in order to control the light on the subject. One can place the flash away from the camera in order to get more definition on the subject.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output
  • Cons: Needs A Larger Booklet

not good for outside

  • Excerpt: It works fine indoors, but it fails whenever I try to use if outdoor. Maybe because of the sunlight the transmitter doesnt communicated with the speedlight. I lost many great shots during a fashion photoshoot because of it. I would recoment it for indoors photoshoots, not for outdoors..
  • Pros: Easy To Use
  • Cons: Slow Recycling

Works as designed

  • Excerpt: I purchased this to use my flash off camera for portraits, and it works as intended. I would prefer to have the new 600 -RTs and ST-E3 due to the radio transmission function, but they are not in my budget at the moment.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output, Versatile

Love it.

  • Excerpt: I've only just started using my ST-E2, but I have to say I'm ashamed it's taken me this long to get one. Works as advertised and I'm happy to report that so far, there's nothing bad I can say. My only gripe is that like many of my Canon Products, it seems a bit pricey for what it does. Also takes what seemed to me to be an obscure battery, but just might not be familiar with it. Fo get one and get your flashes off your cameras!
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight
  • Cons: A little pricey
