Product Description

The YongNuo YN-568EX shoe-mount flash is specifically designed for use with Canon cameras. It can be preset for a specific type of photo shoot or for certain weather conditions. This YongNuo camera flash mounts quickly to a Canon camera for use in a pinch with sudden weather or lighting changes. In addition, it works well for modeling photo shoots. For enhanced precision, a PC synchronous line adjusts for the specific needs of the application. Furthermore, the YongNuo YN-568EX employs TTL technology, which eliminates the need for an external power source. This shoe-mount flash recycles within 3 s for the next shot, allowing for a position or lighting change. For several shots in sequence, the multiple trigger mode can be activated. The YongNuo camera flash also offers a high-speed sync flash for a faster shutter speed. The YongNuo camera flash is simple to use and works great for beginning photographers to produce professional-quality photos.

Since there aren't any reviews here yet, and very few out there on the net, I thought I'd share some initial impressions. So far, this flash does everything I expected, and I'm quite pleased. I bought this as a supplement for my Canon 430ex for off-camera flash work. I've done a bit of shooting with it already, firing it wirelessly in ETTL mode using my Canon 60D's built-in wireless flash control capability. This was inside, at pretty close distances, but the flash fired every time, even when zipped up into a PBL PHOTO STUDIO 40" REFLECTIVE UMBRELLA SOFTBOX, PHOTO LIGHTING UMBRELLA, Steve Kaeser Photographic Lighting, with the receiver pointed both out and in through the white nylon sheeting. The ETTL system functioned properly, giving me consistent exposures.

Pluses:
+ Build quality feels very solid. While this lacks the release button for rotating the head side to side, the amount of resistance in all dimensions feels just about right. Vertically, there are solid clicks at 45, 60, 75, 90, and -7 (or so), and horizontal rotation has nice clicks every 30 degrees. The battery door flicks open smartly, and has a clever design that doesn't slide the contacts across the tops of the batteries.
+ Nice big display is easy to read
+ High speed sync! I've only tested it for a couple of shots, but it worked fine, up to my camera's max of 1/4000 sec. The recycle time was significantly longer for HSS shots, so you can tell the unit is working hard. This feature looks like the main functional advantage between this and the 565ex, so you have to ask yourself whether it's worth the price difference.

I've been a photographer for 28 years and have used a lot of products over the course of time. As most people, I am always looking to get the most bang for my buck. I have been using Canon Speedlites for years and had very few problems. As of late I've wanted to expand the number of speedlites used per set up and looked into the Yongnuo YN568EX. At first glance I was very impressed. All the stats seemed spot on and for the price I was sure that I would be happy. This was not the case for two main reasons. To be sure that I was not seeing things I performed a test between this flash and my Canon 580EXii. I placed them both on stands using the Yongnuo RF-603 (which I love) as triggers. I placed them about 15 feet from a large white wall and set them both to the same wide (24mm) setting in an effort to compare apples to apples. I metered them individually to shoot at F8 onto the same spot centered on the wall. Here is what I found about the Yongnuo568EX.

1. The light has a very hot center with a slow and uneven fall off, making it useless for wide angle shots, or to be used as a flat fill light. Compared to the Canon 580EXii, the spread of light was extremely inferior. Anyone wanting to use this light to photograph large groups or take a picture of a medium sized room would have a very hot center and dark corners to their image.

2. The color temperature of the light emitting from the Youngnuo was jumping all over the place. While I don't expect a battery powered flash to be as exact as my Einsteins, these units had a 150degree shift in either direction (300 degree total variance) which is just not acceptable to someone using this flash professionally or for someone who is going to be taking several images in the same place and expecting the same white balance for each one.

This is just missing a "Master Flash" setting out of a myriad of awesome features for the price I paid: $182. But even Yongnuo went further in their next model by making the YN 568EX II a Master. I've had this flash for several months now and absolutely love it! I own two of these now with a pair of YN 622C transceivers. I'll be adding a 568EX II to this lineup very soon.
Before I go further in my review I should state that this is the first flash I have ever owned. For a solid 12 months I'd been researching into various external flashes to buy for my Canon 60D. Naturally I was inclined to pursue Canon flashes for the obvious integration functionality between their products. Holy Dina was I thrown off by the prices! This forced me to look into wallet-friendly alternatives. But non really drew me in like their Canon counterparts. It wasnt until Dec '12 that I stumbled upon reviews for a newish company out of China called Yongnuo. For some of the earlier models I was reading issues regarding quality control as some people had units with dying flash power within weeks and others who had units that were going strong after months of heavy use (wedding photos and such). These were all around the 460 series. Then when I got to the 560 series reviewers started singing a different tune, or rather the same tune. Reviews began getting more consistent. More and more people were getting satisfied and impressed with features that started getting loaded on the 565EX units. So I kept my eyes on this business because it was obvious they were gunning for the big dogs. It wasn't until I read more reviewers comparing the 565EX to Canons 580EX II. Comparisons happened earlier but I didn't take them seriously until the YN 565EX.
