The unit is actually big; like the bottom half of the flash in fact but of course big display with bright green back light helps a lot when shooting in dark. Sometimes when I shoot portrait the flash would be standing higher and the flash LCD away from me this tool becomes essential without having to do the guess work. It also makes you look tad bit professional not tinkering around the flash back and forth.
I do like the fact that it uses two AA's! I was thinking it would run off of AAA which meant buying more AAA's but sticking to AA's is a good thing. I have number of Amazon Basics rechargeables I keep in hand at all times so they will all come in handy. The buttons feel exactly like the ones on YN560ii's and iii's. Seems pretty solid!
If you're getting into Strobist buy this and two YN560III's to start out. You won't regret it. I've used the flash for couple years now and don't have a reason to go back to any branded flash ever. It's cheap, it works flawlessly and has never failed me even during events and other professional shoot. I still used my trusty old Cowboystudios NPT-04 trigger but this just adds the wireless control which completely changed my workflow.
Optical line of sight not needed. Conveniently changes output power of Yongnuo 560iv flash via radio.
UI ergonomics seem fine: if you figure out the flash unit, the remote is a cinch. Most confusing part was ensuring the flash unit is in RX mode so it receives.
If you check on the Interent, many people are rewiring their Yongnuo triggers (Canon version) to work with Panasonic and Olympus cameras. For those of you who use Panasonic cameras, the Yongnuo YN560-TX for Nikon WILL WORK WITHOUT ANY MODIFICATIONS. I have used it with a Panasonic GH4. The Canon version must be rewired and is very difficult to slide on to the hot shoe. If you’re not careful, the Canon version can get stuck in the Panasonic hot shoe! So just use the Yongnuo YN560-TX for Nikon controller/trigger instead.
I use this flash setup for any lighting situation where flash fill is needed. A quick way to determine this is to look at the subjects eye sockets. If the sockets are dark, which I call “Raccoon Eyes”, you need to fill it with flash. If you are outside, the main light is from the sun and the Yongnuo flash will provide the fill. I usually put the Yongnuo YN560 IV flash on a light stand, 10 feet away, set at the widest flash setting 24mm. A good starting point is to have the flash contribute 30% of the total light to the picture. The other 70% would be from the sun. You can do this by “chimping”, that is, change settings-shoot-view LCD until the picture looks correct. Or you can use a light meter that can calculate the flash plus main light ratio for you and give you the camera settings. I use a light meter since I can usually lock in the correct settings with two test shots. Some of the Sekonic light meters have the ability to calculate flash fill percentages. Examples are the Sekonic L-358 and Sekonic L478D. NOT ALL METERS CAN DO THIS. If the light meter is too expensive, just rent one for a week until you get the feel of calculating the settings yourself. However, I really recommend using a meter since you can lock in the settings quickly and spend more time shooting and less time fiddling with camera settings. You’ll actually save money if you’re shooting a paid model.
One last comment regarding the Yongnuo YN560 IV manual flash. I purchased this one because it can accept an external battery pack such as the Canon CP-E3 and CPE4. But, I do not recommend the Canon packs since the clips that hold the batteries in place always break. You can buy a cheaper 3rd party external pack instead. This will dramatically cut down the recycle time of the flash, especially when using the flash at full power. Although the Yongnuo flash has a beep tone to let you know when the flash is fully recycled, you may not be able to hear it unless you are in a quiet place. If you are a fast shooter, the flash might not be recycled on the next shot resulting in underexposure.
