I have used two YN560 III's plus several optically triggered (slave mode) flashes from other manufacturers and that combination has met my needs. The non-Yongnuo flashes need to be adjusted manually so I place them in the most convenient locations and adjust the YN560's remotely via the YN560-TX unit. I am considering adding a couple more YN560's just for convenience. The YN560-TX (like the YN560 flashes) is well made and easy to use. You may need to spend some time getting things set up but once you do that it's all very easy.
As is the case with the YN560 flash units, there are a couple different pin configurations on the hot shoe mount; one for Canon and the other for Nikon. As far as I am aware, the only thing these effect is the camera's ability to wake the system from sleep mode. I shoot micro four thirds so that is not an option for me but everything else about the system works perfectly for me. I just make sure the camera and the YN560-TX are both awake and ready before I shoot.
Keep in mind this system ONLY supports manual flash!! If you want to shoot TTL or any type of automatic flash, this will NOT do that!! Personally, I find TTL convenient with one or two flashes in relatively simple situations but the automation is too difficult to control in more complex situations. Once you are shooting with three or more flashes (or any number of inaccessible ones), the ability to manually control each flash individually and build up a shot over several tries works better for me. This system is really designed for convenience when using several flashes in manual mode and it does that very, very well. In fact, because it is so easy and convenient to control, I now prefer this system almost all of the time.
I have not used the YN560 IV units. As I understand it, they essentially combine the functions of this trigger/controller into the flash so you can use any flash as either a trigger/controller or as a flash which is triggered by another unit. There is a cost savings advantage but I can't speak to complexity. Yongnuo has done a very good job on their interface which makes things go smoothly. As long as the 560IV doesn't make things overly complex I would expect it works well.
The YN560III has a built in RF-602/RF-603 receiver, meaning you don't need a separate receiver. You can purchase a RF-602 TX or RF-603TX and trigger the flashes wirelessly.. until now, this has been a nice little bonus but with the YN560TX, it adds the ability to remotely change the power levels of the flashes from the camera itself (opposed to just sending a trigger signal). This is a great feature, one usually reserved for higher-cost ETTL models.
A few nice features on it:
* The YN560TX can pair up to 6 groups. You can have an A, B, C, D, E, F group and adjust each light separately.. If you assign 2 flashes to an "A" group, changing that setting on the YN560TX will change it on all "A" group flashes.
* You can set the YN560TX to either RF602 or RF603 and 16 different channels each -- if you have an older flash (like a YN560II) you will need a RF602 or RF603 receiver to trigger the flash (Note: the wireless control will not work on YN560 or YN560II -- you need the 560III or newer). It will only trigger a RF602/603.
* If you change the power with the YN560TX, you can also trigger those flashes with a RF602/RF603 transmitter set to the same channel (EX: Using 2 cameras one with a YN560TX and one with a RF602/RF603)
On to the product -- it's a nice design - it looks like someone cut a YN560 in half and took off the flash head -- even down to the red front cover (which appears to be functionless/decoration-only?)
Construction is solid, buttons are good and it has a good viewing angle/backlight (green)
Setup is a bit tricky as there are 4 buttons, a TEST light, up/down/left/right/center and an on-off switch.. this means lots of holding multiple buttons at once to set features. For example, hold MODE+HZ/FN to change from RF602 to RF603.. A lot of these aren't very clear, and if in the field and needing to "fix" something, can be quite a challenge (even with the instruction manual, due to the way it's written). A nicer method would have been to have a "Settings" menu to change these rather than button presses (pressing 1 button, holding the same button, and holding the same button + another button all product different features).
The hotshoe is metal ad has a locking/twist mechanism which is nice. The item's lightweight, even with batteries.. but it's pretty bulky (not deducting points for, since a lot of that is due to the screen size and buttons), but it's worth noting.
Unfortunately, where I started to discover some problems were with it being somewhat unreliable when using multiple -- I picked up 3 of these to use with 3 different cameras. You CAN use multiple together, but settings don't always send the way you'd like them to. For example I'll call these 560TX-A and 560TX-B
If 560TX-A is set to 1/1 power on channel A and 560TX-B is set to 1/4 power on channel A, the one which was set LAST takes priority. If you want the 2nd transmitters' settings to send, you need to use the "Group" button to highlight the channel (EX: "A") for about 2 seconds for it to send that signal. If using 1 channel, it's not bad.. if using 3, 4, 5 or 6 it's kind of annoying. I bought this thinking it sent the "power level" signal when it transmitted the "Flash" signal, which is not the case.
My other gripe was that it was hit or miss, even at close distances (~5 feet). With fresh batteries in a brand new YN560III and in the YN560TX, I would have some flashes failing to "flash" every few shots.. Trying with a RF602 transmitter, the problem went away. I don't know why it does this, and it would alternate between flashes that wouldn't fire (the flashes were recharged, on a lower level (not overheating) and tried with multiple sets of new batteries in each and different YN560TX's). Outdoors seemed to work better, however
