Yongnuo has announced a new Speedlite YN600EX-RT for Canon strobists. The radio-controlled flashgun comes with a variable electronic zoom head that shifts between 20 and 200mm, plus it can be tuned for high-speed sync up to 1/8000 second.

Once paired with a the YN-E3-RT radio the flash can also be set up to fire with E-TTL mode and manual power control. The best thing about Yongnuo flashes is users can ride on Canon’s official radio transmission protocol whilst being a cheaper alternative to Canon own Speedlite, the 600EX-RT. Just keep in mind the YN600EX-RT is not compatible with Yongnuo’s 2.4GHz triggering systems, including the RF-603 and YN-622.

Yongnuo has yet to release a price for the Speedlite YN600EX-RT but it should arrive this October. Until then check past the jump for more images and specs on this flashgun.
