Re: Yongnuo YN-560 III has built in receiver

It says it has built in RF, but I bought the yn560III and the RF603N, but can not get the flash to fire unless it is on the hot shoe of the camera or mounted on top of one of the RF603's.

I thought you were supposed to be able to fire the flash without having to mount it on a 603.  The flash recognizes a button press because the blue light flashes, but the flash doesnt fire.

Is it me?  Am I doing something wrong or am I misunderstanding how this should work.
