Yongnuo has just announced a new version of its famous transmitter YN-E3-RT. No big changes, but a higher compatibility with the latest flashes and triggers.

The 2-way 2.4Ghz radio system is fully compatible with the Canon ST-E3-RT transmitter and the Canon 600EX-RT flash. The transmission range is given for 100 meters.

It also support YN-E3-RT / YN968EX-RT / YN600EX-RT II / YN686EX-RT / YN-E3-RX Yongnuo devices.

The firmware of the YN-E3-RT II can be updated via USB. Please check the firmware page to find up-to-date Yongnuo firmware.

This new trigger/transmitter from Yongnuo supports 1st curtain / 2nd curtain (M mode only) / High Speed Sync.

Nine customs functions can be added to the menu of the YN-E3-RT II.

Specifications of the YN-E3-RT II:

  • Compatible ST-E3-RT / 600EX-RT systems

This upgraded version of the Yongnuo transmitter YN-E3-RT bring not much features, but is compatible with the latest Yongnuo devices. It should be released in late 2018 at a similar price than the first version (~$80).

  1. I have read that the YN-E3-RT will work with non Canon cameras to trigger Canon speedlights. Has anyone tried this with the YN-E3-RT II? Anything I need to do to get this to work with my Olympus OM-D?

    I tried it and get good connection between the YN-E3-RT II and my Canon 600EX-RT Speedlights. If I process the test flash button on the YN-E3-RT II that lights indeed flash.

    When I mount the YN-E3-FT II trigger on my Olympus OM-D E-M1X I get erratic results. Sometimes they flash and sometimes they don’t. It will be 1, 3, 10, 20 shutter releases between flashes. Firmware v 1.13.

    Is there something else I should be doing or am I out of luck. Thanks for your help.

  2. I have a Yongnou YN-E3-RT Transmitter. Although the ‘Link’ light and the screen lights up normally, the charge lamp does not come on so nothing works. I have changed batteries and cleaned contacts but it still doesn’t light. Can you help, please.
