I moved from multiple 580 EX II's to 3 600 EX RT's with a 1DX.

I've read every manual and for some reason I'm getting mixed results with single camera mounted and multiple 600's with the camera mounted unit controlling all.

I've tried M, P, A, T with 24-70, 50, 70-200 all with same under and over exposure.

QUESTION:

Is there a de facto setting I can set everything to starting with one 600 on the 1DX to see if something could be off inside the 1DX causing this?

Using the same flashes on my 7D the results are stellar even though the radio function cannot be used.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
