They work best in pairs, or sets of 3+ with light modifiers (umbrellas, octabox, beauty dish etc..) to make most of the built in wireless receiver.
Match it up to the YN-560 Controller or a 603 trigger and you have a cheap portable system that will give you endless possibilities at a fraction of the cost of a set of battery operated strobes.
At first (when I was very inexperienced) I regretted buying this flash and moved onto a used Canon 430EX, but have since learned to make the most of this flash and the massive potential it affords you.
Where it excels:
- Outdoor Fill Flash
- With light modifiers (umbrellas, octaboxes, softboxes, beauty dishes)
- On location shoots where space and time are an issue
- In experienced hands.
Where it fails:
- Event work in dark venues (No AF assist light)
- Overheats cheap batteries (but works perfect with rechargeable eneloops)
Best things about this flash:
- Price (I have 2, soon to be 3)
- Wireless capabilities
- The battery door is a known weak point and I've had issues in one
- The buttons became stuck on one of mine, refusing to turn off
I use this with my Canon 5D mk3 and a set of Yongnuo YN RF-603 C3 triggers. No trigger is needed for the flash end, just your camera if it does not already have it.
I can now shoot with wireless flash at up to 1/160 shutter speed.
This unit feels a little cheaper than my Canon 430 EX II but not a million miles away. It is much brighter than the 430, as it should be.
The big issue of course is price. The Canon 600EX-RT flash is £430. This thing is not just cheaper, but in a different world price-wise. Even is this proves less reliable and needs replaced every year or so, it would still be worth it. I can buy almost NINE of these for the cost of the Canon.
Okay so it does not have ETTL, but that is of limited use when bounce flashing or shooting through an umbrella etc anyway. It is also a little tricky to get the diffuser panel out.
Generally I am a fan of paying extra for quality and would not normally even consider a typically "cheap" copy of anything.
Canon's ridiculous pricing though means I have, and I am glad I have. I bought this and the pair of triggers mentioned for about seventy-five quid. Used with my existing Canon 430EX II flash and I have twin wireless flash.
To do this with an all canon setup such as two 600EX-RT and a transmitter from Canon would be about one thousand pounds.
I will update the review in time if anything changes, so far though I am very happy.
OK so it is not TTL but if you are using this as an additional flash for creative purposes then that isn't"t an issue. Set on S2 mode it ignores the preflash from a TTL gun and triggers at the correct time so you can use TTL as the main source and this gun for background fill or with a modifier, as a rim light or similar.
I cannot believe how cheap this gun is compared to my Metz ones and it works fine on the hotshoe of my Panasonic GH4 and GX7
- I don't know if it is normal but the charging light is green while the ready light is red. Is that normal or is somebody colour blind? (I hope it's not me)
- The flash head is larger than my metz and although it isnot massive, it fills a little bigger if not heavy.
- The flash is supposed to trigger wirelessly. I was hoping it would work with any of my current triggers but it didnt. I have ordered the rf603s but would be happier if Yongnuo hurried up and released their fancier trigger to control the flashes from camera. Being able to control these flashes remotely will really make them worth every penny.
At the price I can get several of these to a single metz or canon and if you just want the flash to light a background or hair then why pay more?
