First impression: Build quality is wonderful (for the price). At first glance, it looks very similar to the 580EX II. However, upon closer inspection, I noticed subtle differences.
-The zoom mechanism is significantly noisier.
-The tilt/swivel head does not lock when releasing the side buttons. As a matter of fact, it does not even have a lock realease button under the rubber cover. Its just there to mimic the 580EX II.
-It does not have weather sealing rubber to cover the hot-shoe. It uses the old fashioned locking ring to attach to the hot shoe.
-The buttons and controls are slightly different
-It does not do high-speed sync
-No built-in wireless commander (Master control)
Wireless triggering: Can be triggered by the Canon 580EX II, Yongnuo ST-E2 transmitter (don't have canon's ST-E2), as well as with the built in trigger in the 60D. The optical sensor in S1 and S2 mode works well.
TTL mode gives accurate exposures when used on or off camera. Power output is about identical to the 580EX II. Test result in amazon's product photo page.
Overall, its a great flash. Its both powerful and affordable. I use it as a back up flash along with my 430EX II and 580EX II. The camera bodies I use are 5DM2 and 60D. I have owned the Lumopro LP-160 manual flash, but sold it to get this Yongnuo YN-565EX. It offers much more features at a similar price range. I would highly recommend it!
Update 1/08/12: I have recently ordered this flash for my friend and he had problem turning the flash on as described in some of the other reviews here.Read more ›
I hesitated writing a review on it until I had at least a month or more to play with it, since some folks are complaining about high failure rates. Now that I've had some time I feel I can give my thoughts on the YN-565ex for Canon. Most of what I have to say echoes some of the other excellent reviews here.
There's probably a couple of reasons you're looking at this flash unit.
1) You are here because you're looking for a second, third or fourth manual flash unit and possibly already own at least one Yonguo flash.
2) You're looking for a first dedicated flash unit that's less expensive than the Canons.
In both cases, I can easily recommend this device at its current price of around $160. For those not familiar with the Yongnuo flashes, this is almost an exact physical copy of the Canon Speedlite 580ex ii. The physical differences between this and the fully manual Yongnuo YN-560 are that they've added buttons that are functionally very similar to the Canon, and the LCD screen is a dead ringer - save for an orange backlight instead of green. The advantage is that if you have the Canon, then you've got no learning curve. Or, if you get a Canon, you'll know how to use it. Of course this flash is fully automatic compared to the YN-560. Stick it on and go!Read more ›
I bought one of these for my home studio, my portable portrait studio and for some special projects. I wanted something that would work with the Nikon CLS system, I NEEDED something with an external battery pack for long shoots and rapid fire shooting - but I couldn't afford a new SB800 or SB900.
(THIS UNIT WORKS WITH CANON AND NIKON BOTH!!!)
The 8 "AA" cell external battery pack was about 50 bucks - I was thrilled! YongNuo External Flash Battery Pack SF-18 for Canon EX580 II EX580 Holding 8 AA Batteries
I read the reviews - I saw an awful lot said about firing it 20 times and it dies... I am no stranger to electronics so the first thing I did when I got it was wring it out in the studio. I figured if I didn't kill it the first night in the studio - it may work for a shoot!
I fired it off a lot more than 20 times! However - they state VERY plainly in the manual that if you are going to do any rapid fire shooting, use it at ¼ power or below! I cranked it back and had no issues at all.
I use this in a big umbrella type soft box with the cord for the external battery pack dangling down below it (I need some Velcro straps!). I fired it off about 100 times in a relatively short period of time - NO overheating, NO issues - it just worked like it should! BUT - If you don't use the MANUAL EV compensation ON the flash (Which over rides the CLS commands, BTW) and crank it back to about -3 or -4 then you will likely smoke the flash head...Read more ›
