Yongnuo Flash Speedlite Yn-460ii for Nikon Canon Pentax – Review:
AMAZING ALTERNATIVE TO COSTLY BRAND NAME!
I purchased an SB-600 (I have a D90) from BestBuy just to get a feel for off camera flash photography. Just so happens that I got a faulty item. Absolutely nothing against Nikon… I just happened to get one that didn’t work. But it worked out great for me in the end. That night I researched alternatives and came upon YN’s product line. I ordered two YN-460ii’s, and two sets of YN RF-602 radio triggers/receivers (it’s only $6 less for a receiver alone). The total for the two flashes and the two sets of radio triggers/receivers came to $60 less than what I paid for the single SB-600. Of course there’s no CLS capability with the YN’s… but I now have radio triggers/receivers taking line of sight out of the equation.
Un-boxed everything thinking there would be at least one faulty item somewhere in the mix, but was relieved to find everything working perfectly. Fired off at least a hundred flashes tonight without any issues. Amazing alternative to the pricier versions out there.
After messing around with off camera, I tried on-camera and it was brilliant. It won’t fire unless you’re in manual mode on your camera. I usually have it on aperture priority. Makes sense though since your camera won’t fire with the correct settings given that the flash has no TTL capabilities. That’s one of the upsides to having an SB-XXX, assuming cost is not a factor.
There is no digital display on the back of the YN-460II, and there’s only 7 power levels visible on the back of the flash. But you can fine tune each level at 1/7th increments beyond that.
For the price being a fraction of what you’d pay for a Nikon, it’s a steal. Brilliant. And if you’re worried about the whole “made in china” thing, the Nikons are made in China too.
