I am new at this. I have a Canon t6i and a Canon 430EX-IIIRT. If I want to use that 430EX-IIIRT as an external flash, do I need both the transceiver and receiver or just the transceiver?

If your just using one off camera flash you may want to try setting it off with the t6i's popup flash. Set the popup flash as the master and the 430 as the slave. You generally have to be in line of site of the flash for this to work.

thanks, yes i have tried this but like you said it is hit or miss because of line of sight, so I wanted to find a cheap way to use the radio capability of the 430EX-IIIRT (I was so bummed to find out that the T6i does not have radio master trigger capability).

You need both. The transmitter sits on the hotshoe and triggers the remote flashes. The flashes sit on radio receivers and are triggered by the transmitter. They work as a set.

I was wondering if the 430EX-iiiRT has built in radio master/slave capability, if this transceiver can send to the 430EX directly or does it use a different frequency/protocol than what canon uses on their own equipment?
