While most people who have left reviews did a few tests here and there to see if it was reliable and working, I decided a trial by fire was the best way to see if I liked it, so I took it right out on the job with me. I had it for less than a day before I was set to go to Tucson Comic Con as the official photographer, and while it took a glance at the manual to figure out how to manually set the zoom head position and a few other useful things, it is far more intuitive than most brand-name flashes that you will come across as your career/hobby progresses.
I have used many flashes, and of those costing less than your firstborn or your favorite appendages, this is by far the best. The main reason I bought this flash unit was to replace an old Canon 430ex I had that died a horrible death (big boom) and meet my needs of a flash unit that could operate in automatic to allow me to focus on quickly snapping pictures without calibration, and this meets those needs above and beyond what I expected. While it may have a lower guide number, I was not left wanting more power even in the dismal stadium-style lighting of the TCC exhibit hall.
In the 18+ hours that I mercilessly ran it through the wringer photographing the people and events that populated the convention, I had no issues with the flash. It even got knocked off a table by an oblivious fast-moving con-goer and, while the batteries popped out and had to be chased down, it sustained no damage and went right on ticking.Read more ›
This is my second yong nuo flash. My other one is a 560 all manual flash. I decided I needed TTL after seeing a few totally ruined photos that would've been perfect if I had remembered to change my output with my zooming.
I really like the TTL. I like the fact that you can take the flash +/- 3 Exposure Bias to drop down into the fill flash category.
The AF assist beam makes the price alone worth it. Are you tired of your DSLR 'hunting' for focus in dark situations? The laser grid this thing projects is extremely useful. To test how smart it was I went into my bathroom turned all the lights off and the beam made the camera grab focus in roughly the same time it did with the lights on.
The quality of light is very clean and the head articulates for all the necessary angles.
Works with all of canon's TTL Flash Control menus no problem.
Build quality feels on par with the 18-55 kit lens that comes with the entry level DSLRs nowadays. Not much metal but no foreseeable problems.
This is a bit smaller than the yn560/canon 580 series which is nice.
I highly recommend this to help get better focus in dark situations and forget about adjusting flash all the time. Will I want something better in a couple years if I get good enough to utilize it? Yes. Will I have a better use of 100$ in the near future with regards to my camera? No. If you've never used eTTL flash or external flash in general I'd get this to learn with.
Hope this helps.
I was considering spending nearly $1100 on a faster lens, but tried this instead. I am pretty sure I got many times over my money's worth by getting this flash than I would have with the new lens and no flash. And just for fun, I took this flash with me to a recent wedding reception. The people at my table were so taken with the photos that I was getting that 3 of them will be buying one of these flashes very soon.
