Can you elaborate?

One of the new features that Canon introduced with their new radio flash system is the ability to remote trigger cameras.  There are two remote configurations:

1. Remote release.  In this mode, you can have a linked shooting master triggers a slave mounted on top of the remote camera.  Obviously, you will need two units of any combination of the ST-E3 RT or the 600EX-RT, which is not economical if only use them solely for remote triggering.  For a 2012 camera, such as the 5D3, the communication is all done through the hotshoe with no cable needed.

2. Linked shooting.  In this mode, you put the master on top of the commanding camera, and you can have up to 15 slaves mirroring the shutter triggering of the commanding camera.  This is great for sports, as you can shoot multiple camera angles at the same time all by yourself.

Syl Arena has a great write up recently.  Jump to the bottom of the page 6 and the top of the page 7 for more details.
