Canon has announced the Speedlite 600EX II-RT flash unit with faster recycle times and the DM-E1 Directional Stereo Microphone.
The new Speedlite 600EX II-RT from Canon offers wireless shooting via radio and optical transmission, but improves flash recycle times by 1.1 to 1.5x when using AA batteries and up to 2x with a new CP-E4N add-on battery pack.
