The controls are slightly more complex than the yn560iii but it's just like anything new with a minor learning curve. I find the YN560TX a little easier to use for changing settings on the remotes, but this product does make the 560TX unnecessary if you are on a tight budget. It fires fine in RX mode with the 560TX or 603 and has access to all 6 groups in both TX and RX modes. Range seems to be similar to others in this series (603, 560tx) and works fine in a mid sized reception hall (haven't tried it in a large hall). It is compatible with the newer yn605 which has group control, but I have not tested this. Output is as good as most other speedlights out there, although I did not test it precisely using a light meter. When in any slave mode (RX, S1, S2) an LED on the front flashes, I find this bit annoying in dark venues and cover it with a piece of black tape which significantly attenuates the brightness.
The battery compartment door seems pretty solid (this was an issue on some earlier Yongnuo speedlights). The 560iv has a port for an external battery pack that should fit Canon compatible packs. Like similar flashes, it has a pull out diffuser and bounce card. The PC port is a traditional threaded style. The head swivels (with detents, but no lock) to the right 90 degrees and to the left 180 degrees, it would be nice if it also swiveled to the right 180. Elevation is from about -5 degrees to 90. The shoe tightener is the screw down style Yongnuo has used for a long time, many people prefer the quick release flip type lock that Canon uses (doesn't matter too much to me). The flash does not have a USB port or obvious way to upgrade firmware. Size is similar to other full sized speedlights such as the 580ex-ii or SB900, and is exactly the same size as the YN560iii. The main display is back lit, but the buttons are not.
It comes packaged with a small stand like most other flashes in this price range or higher, as well as a decent quality pouch, and some instructions that while not great, are understandable.
This series (560iii, 560IV, 603, 605) is the best bang for the buck on the market right now (late 2014) for manual speedlights. The cost difference between the model iii and iv is minimal making the iii somewhat obsolete so if you are just putting together a new setup, I suggest going straight for the 560iv. Of the competition I considered, the Godox V850 has the advantage of battery life over this (and pretty much every other speedlight out there), but it requires an external RX dongle that falls off easily, doesn't have a built in transmitter, has poor remote range, and more a limited remote feature set than the 560TX or the 560IV in TX mode.
For a minimal investment one can have a complete on camera/off camera manual system (sans modifiers) that works quite reliably. And if you want to incorporate some monolights into your setup, the YN605 is a great option which enables you to selectivity enable/disable certain groups from remote.
I will try to answer any questions left in the comments. Like this review if it was helpful to you.
The best part about the YN560 IV is it can act as a transmitter and a flash all at the same time. I have two YN 560 IIIs and set the YN 560 IV on the camera as the center flash, while at the same time use two YN 560 IIIs as side flashes. If you want the same settings for all the flashes, set all of them to one channel and group. In other words, if I want all of them to be at 1/64 power at a zoom level of 28mm, I set the YN 560 IV for that setting and press the Pilot button. You do have to initialize the YN 560 III flashes first. All the flashes will now be set the same way. If you want more or less power on the flashes on the side, for instance, then you need each flash in its own group. In other words, say Group A for the left flash and Group B for the center flash and Group C for the right flash. Now you can adjust them all individually Set them all on the same channel and they will all go off at the same time.
If you have all three flashes set to Group A, and want more power from the center one on the camera (YN 560 IV), just adjust the setting on that camera flash without pressing the Pilot button. That flash will then have more or less power without affecting the left and right flash units. If you want all the flashes to have the same settings again, press the Pilot button on the YN 560 IV, and it will synchronize the flashes to the YN 560 IV.
There are a bunch of videos on YouTube showing how to adjust or use the YN 560 IV flash. Just do a search on it.
The YN 560 IV will only work electronically with the YN 560 III or YN 560 IV. If you have one of the earlier YN 560 I or YN 560 II flashes, you can opt for the RF 603 II to control those flashes electronically or set them to slave flash to control them with a camera flash or an external flash. You need one RF 602 II for each flash unit. The YN 560 IV will automatically set off a RF 603 II, but they are not controllable, and the flash will have to be adjusted manually.
This is an update. 2-9-16 I have 6 of these units. 3 of them are stuck on full power. They have been that way for many months. The return through Amazon has expired. A google search showed many other users experiencing the same thing.
