Pocket Wizard PlusX vs. Yongnuo RF-603
Mar 1, 2013

At $99 per the new PlusX doesn't seem all that compelling compared to the Yongnuo. There's a couple of nice little extra features, like manual override for the auto detect tx/rx mode and low battery warning but nothing earthshaking. It's a bit bulky and there's no pass-through hot shoe. If you're on a budget the 603 seems a better deal at one-third the cost. If you're a pro the more upscale Pocket Wizard models seem like a smarter way to go.
