Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer! For years now I have wondered why Canon didn’t have a solid flash. Over hearing, missed flashes, lack of water sealing for even light rain let alone a surprise downpour. Well the wait is over. The battery fits the EOS R system charger for the battery and comes with one too. Now for the flash, it’s larger than the 600 series flash so likely heavier but not ever having to carry back up AA’s is a plus. I know I needed it for a wedding at a venue with a notorious dark reception location. Not disappointed. Solid performance. 25+ straight fires with no misfire for a bouquet toss. Dance floor was dark even with the DJ’s lights and got all those as well. On my R5 is was simply fantastic. I should check on my 5DM4 to make sure it’s equally great but don’t know why it wouldn’t be. I did try to use it as a trigger for my 600 flash but was unable to do it so that may take some more reading up on. Amazon got it to me in 2 days!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beast Mode Event Flash! I took the plunge and purchased this flash as an upgrade to the 600EXII-RT. 1st use was at a 6 hour event that included outdoor and indoor locations with varying lighting. I was thoroughly impressed at how the flash could easily keep up with 12 fps and maintain the same light levels. Never did the flash have to stop and cool down. This outperforms the 600 quite handily. Battery life was also great. I took around 600 flash photos (not all at full power, and I still have 4 bars on the battery indicator. E-TTL II works wonderfully, applying just the perfect amount of flash, even as fill-flash for backlit scenes. I also found the modeling lamp useful as a video light in a pinch. Not designed for this use, but I was able to video a single subject on the dancefloor quite well. The flash is very robust as well, and I can rest assured a spilled drink or light rain won't hurt it. Overall, I'm very pleased with this high-end flash!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big upgrade Big step forward over my 580 MkII. It is quite a bit larger so that takes a bit of getting used to, but the performance makes up for the size
