I bought this along with their YN-622C radio triggers which elevate your off camera flash to new levels. For the cost of a single Canon flash, you can get a nice off camera 2 or 3 flash setup. That said, when I did end up purchasing a 3rd flash, I went for the slightly cheaper YN560II, which lacks the ETTL element, as I found I was only using manual flash when setting up a scene.
YN560 - No ETTL / No High Speed Sync (>1/200 or 1/250 shutter speed)
YN656 - ETTL but still no High Speed Sync
TN568 - ETTL and HSS
I was expecting them to feel cheap and flimsy but they don't. OK, the screw fitting on the shoe is not as convenient as the clamp on my Canon flash and they are not weatherproof but for one quarter of the price who cares. The menu system is at least fathomable unlike my Canon which requires a thorough reading of the manual to understand.
If you are into multiple speedlite set ups, then these are just the job. They can be adjusted from the camera, sync at high speed etc etc - perfect! The only downside is that they can't act as a master flash but then I don't need that given that I use radio triggers rather than infra-red.
PS I've now got four Yongnuo YN-622C triggers on the way which will complement the flashguns nicely. You can work out for yourselves how much I have saved over a pair of 580s along with Pocket Wizard ETTL triggers!
The ETTL also works great with my Canon 6D. I honestly wouldn't buy a Canon strobe after investing in this flash if I had to buy another strobe.
The instructions were a little difficult to read. However if you know how to use a flash you'll quite quickly work out how to use this one.
Basically it's buy one of these and afford TTL triggers, or buy a canon unit and do everything on manual through the Flash Wave III units I use for my studio gear. Having heard good things about both the choice seemed simple
Out the box and all was well. Well built, nice and weighty, but with something about overheating protection that made me wander why it needed that in the first place. What ever, maybe it's a feature, maybe a catch all, fact is it's there and I'll update this review after I've had a chance to use it on a job.
One thing that should be stamped on the box is "This speedlight cope with bouncing flash in Evaluative metering." Long story short it's underexposed to a wildly and varying degree depending on the length of the lens. The longer the lens the more it seems to mess up, and it also sometimes seems to mess up the following shot as well.
Apparently this is something that YongNuo are aware of, and the workaround is to use it in Average when bouncing off any surfaces. Given that the only on camera flash work I ever do is bounce that's not the best news, but I can live with it when you consider that you can get two and a half of these things for a single Canon. That's a lot of extra light, and certainly enough triggers to set up a decent portrait.
As for the rest I still haven't had the chance to go through the thin but adequately produced manual [if you want hard cover go for high end].
One small caviat is that it blew through the batteries I put in it during the first afternoon. I should preface that statement with I'm not too sure if one of them was actually new, and there was a lot of full high 1/1 experimentation going on! like I said, when I've had a chance to use this on an actual job I'll update the review, and possibly the score...
Keep watching the skies ;-)
Just in case anyone is unsure or confused, as I was, with regard to 'wireless' operation....optical flash is considered wireless. It's not radio so line of sight is required. Wireless flash does not require line of sight and as far as I can understand that's the 'RT' part of the Canon.
