I will only qualify myself as an extreme enthusiast because I still lack years and years of experience that other professionals have. I've been serious about perusing a professional career in photography for almost 2 years now, however, the majority has been studying the field and collecting equipment. My first flash was the Canon Speedlite 270EX Flash for Canon Digital SLR Cameras. Even though it helped, this flash really did not help THAT much, however, my knowledge of strobist photography was non-existent at the time. After a while, I graduated to the Canon Speedlite 580EX II Flash for Canon EOS Digital SLR Cameras. When I got the 580EX II, I realized that I missed out on sooooo much just shooting with the 270EX. After a while I ended up getting the Canon Speedlite 430EX II Flash for Canon Digital SLR Cameras and the Speedliter's Handbook: Learning to Craft Light with Canon Speedlites. After studying this book, my photography has not been the same since.
I love my 580 and 430, however, I could not afford to buy 2 or 3 more of those flashes and even if a miracle happened, how much harder would it be for me to replace those flashes if one or more is lost or damaged. So I did my research and came upon the YN560. For a cheap flash, it had the best reviews I came across, especially for a flash under $100. I was skeptical at first because I was so used to Canon equipment, however, I thought $70 couldn't hurt me toooo bad.
When I finally got one I was COMPLETELY BLOWN AWAY!!!!! This is EXACTLY what I needed as a slave only flash! The build quality is similar to the 580, they take the same accessories, and it is just as powerful as the 580. I bought a second one that same day.
If you are a pro looking for a cheap flash, here are my reasons why I would recommend this flash to you:
1. YN560 has 2 built in optical slaves modes, 580 has no built in optical slave mode.
2. YN560 has a simpler interface for adjusting the zoom and power levels.
3. Cheaper to replace and cheaper to add additional flashes.
4. Provides a sound when the flash has charged to fire again.
5. Similar build quality as the 580.
6. Accepts the same accessories as the 580.
7. Just as powerful as the 580.
If you are a beginner, and/or someone who is considering the cheap route when it comes to buying your first flash:
1. The YN560 can be triggered by ANY on-camera flash, whether you have a professional camera or a simple point-and-shoot camera. Unless you have a Canon 7D, 60D, or T3i, you cannot trigger any of the Canon flashes with a point-and-shoot nor your on-camera flash.
2. Price to feature ratio.
3. Pretty much the same reasons why a pro would buy this flash!
If you are a beginner and are not aware of the 580EX II, it is one of the best flashes Canon currently offers with the 600EX-RT being #1 at the moment. Take away the automatic functions and the weather sealing, you pretty much have the YN560. If you are a pro, yet again, the YN560 is just a cheaper and manual-only version of the 580.
The majority of situations I shoot in require me to use manual settings anyway, so I'm not necessarily required to shoot in ETTL and automatic. If I needed to, my 580 and 430 have done all I've needed thus far when it comes to automatic settings. Also, I like the challenge and consistency of shooting in manual.
This flash is great! I thank God for blessing me with the knowledge of this brand of flash. I use my YN560s much more than my Canon flashes. I even gave one of my YN560s to a friend of mine who shoots with a Nikon D7000, and he was BLOWN AWAY AS WELL! Of course, I had to replace that one I gave away. Another note, the YN560 is compatible with BOTH Nikon and Canon, mounted either on the camera or off.
I've used the YN560s for almost 4 months now. They really have changed the way I shoot. My zoom works perfectly. All of the functions work like they are supposed to. The only thing I wish it had is high-speed sync. Also, the "Pilot" or flash test button is hard to press, however, it works on my flashes. Heck, I hardly ever use the test button.
Check out this flash. Trust me. It's worth the investment!
I can't believe it's been a year and a half since I wrote this review! My flashes are still working and I now have 4 YN560s. I also have the YN560 Version II as well as the YN568EX and the awesome YN622 Triggers!
These flashes continue to impress me as I have a number of success stories with Yongnuo products! I have been published in two magazines and have had the opportunity to do a commercial shoot for Harley-Davidson all thanks to the knowledge of flash photography and the YN560s! I did have one flash that stopped working since this review however, I was able to get that one replaced do to Amazon's amazing customer service! I have also recommended the YN560s to colleagues and they absolutely love them, including a friend of mine who purchased some for his Pentax DSLR!
These flashes work really well at weddings and events when you need multiple off-camera flashes to bounce light off of the ceiling to illuminate dark venues. Because they are relatively in-expensive, being able to purchase multiple YN560s and triggers (Like the Cactus V5 Wireless Flash Trigger) take the stress out of shooting in poorly lit conditions. Also, I've found that the more flashes I have, the more creative options I have like overpowering the sun, applying color gels, etc.! Make sure you look up tutorials and books on strobist photography to learn this stuff! :-)
Truly, these flashes have transformed the way I shoot and I am very grateful to be able to continue to share success stories after all of this time! Stay blessed and keep shooting!
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.
I just ran 2 of these on radio triggers along with a Canon 430ex (which the YN560 is very close to in power) and powered by Energizer 2300 NiMH's. It was a 5 hour shoot, and in over 600 frames not once did these ever misfire.
Pros: Recycle time with NiMHs is crazy fast. The 'beep' on recharge is a perfect way to verify they went off. Build quality is jaw-dropping for the price. Head is the same size as the Canon 580 so it takes the same size Stofen and other size-specific accessories. LED Lights for power level can be seen and adjusted easily WHILE mounted high on a light stand. (Canon units with the LCD always need to be lowered on their stands to adjust them). Level/zoom adjustments on the YN560 are one or two button presses (compared to Canon's where you have to hold down the select button for 1-2 seconds, then make adjustment, then 'select' to set).
Cons: slightly strange power-up on both units I received - if the zoom is set at anything other than 105mm setting AND the flash is being turned on from a cold start, it powers back off requiring another power-on cycle. Once they've been turned on though, it doesn't do this. Since both of mine do exactly the same thing I guess it's normal. Only other slight negative is the level display is not marked 1/128, 1/64, 1/32, etc. it's just a row of 8 lights (marked for zoom setting). What does it matter really? It's manual flash so you're doing test pops anyways, and when you change a power level you're just going up or down in power by a number of steps. I didn't have any problem getting them set exactly where I needed, I just had trouble thinking what the Canon needed to be set in comparison.
