Why Stock Photos?
The short answer is that we use stock photos on some listings to save us time and to save you money. The longer answer is that we love to take photos of each and every lens, camera, and accessory, but doing so takes a lot of time and makes it difficult to get everything listed. So, we decided to compromise: take gorgeous photos of some things and charge a little more for them, and use stock photos for other items and charge a little less for those, all else equal.
The items listed here were tested thoroughly by our trained technicians. If they observed any significant flaws, you’ll see them detailed above. If the items listed here are exceptionally awesome, you’ll see that noted above too. Regardless, please remember this is a used item and it’s bound to have at least a microscopic imperfection.
If you're interested in purchasing an item with specific photos and ratings, we don’t blame you one bit. Please visit one of our specific product listings (if available), usually marked with a serial number. If none are currently available, by all means, contact us.

The Canon ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter
The ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter is Canon’s first wireless transmitter based on radio-signal technology. It gives users the flexibility of line-of-sight-free shooting when coupled with the Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT. With a range of 98.4ft and the ability to adjust not only ratios, but actual power settings from the transmitter itself, the ST-E3-RT greatly simplifies elaborate lighting setups.The ST-E3 features a detailed LCD display screen with clearly laid-out, backlit buttons for full control of settings. Since the transmitter uses a radio signal, it’s only compatible with the radio-signal based 600EX-RT. Despite this, the ST-E3-RT transmitter still offers more control of its compatible Speedlite than any other trigger system out.
The ST-E3-RT transmitter gives Canon the upper hand in the world of off-camera flash shooting. It eliminates the need for multiple accessories just to make your flash work off-camera. While I do have a few big gripes with it, like the lack of AF assist & no infrared signal, it’s still a wonderful step forward. If you’re using 600EX-RT Speedlites off-camera, you want this trigger.
One quick rant, because just looking at the picture doesn’t tell you this. The display screen and controls are on the top of the transmitter, which isn’t too big a deal. Just tilt the transmitter, because Canon was smart enough to make it pivot. WRONG! There is no pivot! Full control of off camera Speedlites is possible using the improved screen and button layout, but quick adjustments must be done by lowering the camera to waist-level to see the screen. Why Canon, why? It’s not a deal breaker by any means, but you will notice this omission.
