I'm overally very pleased with the flash it is both well built, powerful and with a quick recycle time.
But it is important to know what you are getting with this flash, and where it might be useful to you/type of shooting you do etc etc.
I'll do my usual good/bad list first though:
+ Excellent price/bang per buck - For a manual flash for off camera work (main use) it is unbeatable value.
+ Good build quality, solid plastics and firm contruction with no obvious creaking, very respectable at this price point. Buttons are solid plastic (not rubber) and feel decently made and responsive
+ Fast recycle times on the flash about 2.5 seconds at full power
+ Powerful output, more than enough power here for your needs, and a lot more power than say an SB700 or 430EXII Canon flash (and a lot cheaper too)
+ Has a pc sync socked and a port for adding an external power pack
+ Comes with a decent padded case, and stand
+ Metal hinge on battery door feels solid and has not caused any problems to date
+ Easy to use and set up with a logical layout and large back lit LCD
+ Audio beep confirm/power saving modes and fine tuning of output in 1/3 stop increments
+ Built in WA panel and white card
+ Has a multi strobe flash output (can be adjusted for no.Read more ›
As described, the unit is fully manual, so fitted my requirements. It works well when combined with the rf602 receiver/trigger combo - able to shoot up to 1/250 x/sync with no problems at all. This unit has S1 and S2 slave modes but probably won't utilise that function as I always use triggers.
Build quality - very good. It's about the same weight and size as the Canon 580exii. The flash head will also fit the StoFen diffuser for my 580exii.
The recycle time is very good - probably on a par with my 580exii. There is a connection for an additional power pack which helps speed up recycles.
The controls on the back are very easy to figure out - in fact haven't even looked at the instruction book yet.
The pullout wide diffuser panel and white reflector seem robust enough. It comes with a protective pouch and stand.
Buy this model of flash unit if you only require fully manual operation. There is no TTL, but there again you aren't paying for it. Its ideal for strobists or those who know how to use manual flash settings. At this price you could build up a great portable lighting kit.
If you are looking for a flash unit to use on-camera - then you are best looking to some of the other models from YongNuo that have TTL.
This is an excellent piece of kit for the price and in the right hands with the right knowledge you would be able to get some great results.
Another feature on a dedicated flash is the zoom. Whilst zooming the camera would communicate with the flash (you would actually hear the flash adjust).
Now this fashgun, as the description suggests, is fully manual. Yet it is still a very valid alternative, and with some hands on experience you can get some great creative pictures.
A couple of decades ago we took awesome pictures using fully manual cameras with non autofocus lenses, and using light meters to determine the aperture and shutter speed....E-TTL flashes were science fiction.
I find myself using the YN560 II very often due to full control over the flash, thanks to the comprehensive full fledged "menu". Build quality is very good, and the LCD display combined with the button layout makes the YN560 a great flash. The slave function works very well too.
I would recommend that you search whether this flash is compatible with your specific camera. It is not compatible with all the models of the mentioned brand names.
For those who do not fancy dishing out 5 times as much for a dedicated flash, or people wanting to learn and experiment with flashes I would say that this flash is worth every penny. The price of this flashgun is a real bargain when taking into account it's numerous useful functions. Highly recommended.
So, how does it handle? Honestly, I was really impressed, it feels and behalves as you would expect from a professional product costing many time more. The head movement is both smooth and firm and all controls on the back operate well.
I purchased this speedlight for use with my Phase One digital back on my Hasselblad 501CM. Yes, your did read that correctly... The snag with the 'P' series backs is their sensitivity to trigger voltage offered by the flash gun. You would be singularly unwise to use a Metz 45CT1 for example with a Phase One back... The YN-560 II offers an elegant solution. AND the results speak for themselves.. Excellent. No, it does not have the same power as an SB900 but i can't use the SB900 directly with the 'P back without a radio trigger. This unit does an excellent job with just a male to male PC lead (not included). 'Simples'...
I will report back after some serious use and am confident of the outcome..
