Depends on what method of slaving we're talking about and your definition of reliable. If you mean as a dumb optical slave, where the main flash burst from the 600EX-RT can trigger the flash, then all of the YN flashes have "dumb" slave modes on them. If you mean as a wireless eTTL near-infrared optical slave, then any of the Yongnuo flashes with EX in the ...

The Yongnuo YN600EX-RT is pretty much a clone of the Canon 600EX-RT and can be used as either master or slave in combination with it.

You're probably using a shutter speed faster than your cameras maximum sync speed. check your camera's specs, and use a slower shutter speed. If you're using off camera flash with inexpensive third party triggers, you almost undoubtedly should be running both camera and flash in manual mode as well. run it manual, (typically) always keep shutter speed ...

1/400 second definitely exceeds your cameras maximum sync speed, which causes the black band. Try 1/160, or maybe 1/200 second. But in some other cases, we might not have exceeded the cameras maximum sync speed, but cheap radio triggers are notorious for causing a delay, and not being able to keep up with that max sync speed. Just lower your shutter ...

You exceeded your camera body's sync speed. The shutter speed in focal plane cameras, like most dSLRs, is determined by the gap between the 1st and 2nd shutter curtains. The bigger the gap, the longer the shutter speed. At a certain shutter speed (known as the maximum sync speed of the camera), that gap is only barely large enough to uncover the sensor all ...

You're shooting with a shutter speed faster than your sync speed (most likely 1/200 or 1/250). Your camera's shutter consists of two curtains -- the first one opens to begin the exposure, and the second follows it -- closing to end the exposure. At speeds slower than your camera's sync speed, these two curtain movements allow at least a tiny fraction of ...

Back in 2013 PocketWizard announced a hot shoe cable for the first time which somewhat addresses your concern. It is the HSFM3 and can be found here. PocketWizard also offers the MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 with both mount directly to the hot shoe. I assume that the reason that PocketWizard prefers PC Sync connectivity vs Hot Shoe is that adding additional height ...

No, you have to have another RT unit on the camera hotshoe to use the remote shutter release capability of Canon's 2012-and-later cameras. The built-in flash cannot work for this, as it has no RF capability--only optical (i.e., it blinks out light signals, but can't blip out/receive radio signals). It might be easier to just get cheap radio triggers to be ...

I can confirm that if you use a Yongnuo YN-622C, you will be able to trigger your canon speedlights. The setup that I have is 1 Profoto TTL Air remote, 2 Yongnuo YN-622C, 1 430EX II flash, 1 B1. One of the Yongnuo goes between the camera and the Profoto Air remote. The other on the speedlight.
