Yongnuo YN-560 Speedlight Flash for Canon and Nikon – Review:
I LOVE THIS THING!
So I already own a canon 430ex II, and was trying to determine whether this flash was worth it. I am so glad that I bought it. I am a professional photographer who shoots mainly natural light, but wanted another flash for flexibility with off camera lighting scenarios. This thing rocks! In one job, I had accidentally turned off a remote receiver and thought that it was dead. This would have ruined the shoot, but thankfully the yn560 has a built-in optical slave that worked flawlessly and saved my neck! I have been using it with my canon 430 ex II (both off camera) with great results. I don’t recommend this flash to people with the following needs:
1. TTL – it doesn’t have it, manual only.
2. An LCD screen with menus and lots of options – this flash is pretty simple in terms of features.
3. A person new to flash photography intending to use it on camera with subjects of varying distances – if you don’t know what you are doing with flash, it is a better idea to just buy the ttl flash first and then play with the manual flashes when you’ve had more time for study and experience.
4. People just trying to get a cheap flash. – this flash is certainly inexpensive, but the named brand flashes from Canon and Nikon are very nice. If you are going to own one flash, get a good one first with ttl and more features.
Lastly, don’t let the comparisons of canon or Nikon flashes trick you. Those flashes are durable, reliable, and feature rich. This flash is great for manual flash work and off camera lighting. I love how it works for those things. I am even considering buying another one or two down the road.
