    Has anyone tried the Yongnuo RF603II flash triggers?
    I've taken a punt and ordered then through Amazon UK, but they will be coming from Hong Kong so I'm looking at sometime next month before I receive these.

    Yes. I got a pair and returned them, because I needed them to work as a shutter remote on my Canon dSLRs, and I probably got a bad shutter cable.

    They work fine on mft, unmodified. I did, however, notice that one feature that's been mentioned (the PC port acting as an input when the trigger is in Tx mode) doesn't work. And in the manual, the port is described as output-only, so if that's the feature you got them for, you may be disappointed. The test button works in hand, though, so you can still use them with a light meter, if not directly plugged into the light meter.

    As basic flash triggers, though, the ones I had tested pretty solidly. I just didn't have them very long.

    Thanks for the reply, I'll be using them as basic flash triggers.

    I use them for my d700 and strobes....I find they trigger just fine but when they don't fire, it is typically when the batteries are low
