Budget photography accessory manufacturer Yongnuo revealed today that an update to their wildly popular RF-603 radio triggers can be expected to be released later this month. This is great news for fans of the low budget triggers, who have gained popularity due to their reliability and price vs more expensive options such as radio poppers and pocket wizards.


The new radio transceiver, which Yongnuo has dubbed the RF-603 II, will make many updates over the old RF-603s including “higher sync speed, locking ring, and improved flash/shutter control”. All of which were popular customer requests for improvements to the RF-603s.

These new triggers, which Yongnuo has started calling their flagship trigger product, are expected to be released next month. Unfortunately that is as much information as has been made available so far. But Yongnuo will be making a formal announcement with full product details prior to the launch, so stay tuned.
