5.0 out of 5 stars Yongnuo YN560 II Speedlight, 27 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: YONGNUO YN-560 II ELECTRONIC SPEEDLIGHT SPEEDLITE FLASH FLASHGUN With The Standard Hot Shoe for Nikon , Canon , Fuji , Olympus , Pentax , DSLR Digital Camera by eimo (Accessory)
I am delighted with the Yongnuo YN560-II Speedlite.

I use the flash with my Canon 5D MK II and with my Nikon D300 as off camera flash via Cowboy Studio Wireless triggers and it has fired every time.

I didn't want ETTL flash so bought the YN560-II as it is so cheap (less than 50.00 via Amazon).

The quality of the product certainly appears to be on a par with Canon and Nikon Speedlights - the plastic casing and metal hot shoe appears to be very solid and the unit is quite weighty. The LCD menu system is very clear and very easy to use.

Recycle time also appears to be very fast at less than 5 seconds on full power and charging is actually totally silent until a beep tells you the unit is ready to be fired again.

The flash also has an adjustable sleep time mode to save on battery life.

The unit also comes extremely well packed and with a flash stand and a good quality soft case.

In summary this flash unit works extremely well, is very good quality and is very cheap when you compare this flash to the likes of Canon and Nikon.

I will be buying another unit soon for background lighting etc.
