+ Shipping from HK was fast. Arrived in 5 business days. + On off button is easier to use. + Bigger display + Head adjusts easily without having to hold down the unlock button, yet it stays in place just fine. + Has a pull out diffuser + a bounce card. + Bottom locking ring is simple and easy to use. Better than the Canon button lock. + You can turn off the chime noise. + The back of the flash will display the aperture setting from your camera. + Rear d-pad is better than the 430EX's buttons which tend to get stuck down. - Battery door is not so strong, but even the door on the Canon looks like it could break easily. Yongnuo offers a replacement door on ebay. - Requires good batteries. Old NiMH batteries that worked in my Canon flash didn't work in the Yongnuo. - Flash exposure lock will fire the flash, but ends up over-exposing the image.

I purchased three Yongnuo flashes: (2) YN568IIs, and a YN500EX. I have had the 568s less than 6 months and one of them fails to zoom as of last night. The YN500EX makes a super loud popping sound like it's getting ready to blow up or something. Discovered both of those issues while shooting a wedding last night. Luckily I had another Canon flash as back-up. The YN568EXIIs impressed me with their affordable price and lots of features up until last night. Bottom line....do not trust them on the job. I will stick with Nikon/Canon speedlights from now on. These are disposable flashes not meant to last very long I assume. Edit/Update: The zoom issue was actually user error. I had not fully pushed the wide angle diffuser back into the flash head. Found this after following troubleshooting steps emailed to me by Yongnuo customer service. The YN500EX seems to be working fine as well after swapping batteries. Weird since previous batteries were charged. Anyway, changed rating from 2 to 4 stars and glad to have them working.

Best flash I have ever had. Always dependable, always loyal, despite the abuse that it has to endure with a nature photographer like myself. It has all the features I need, like HSS, TTL, manual, etc, etc. Battery life is pretty decent, but HSS drains the power quickly, since rather than a flash, HSS is a rapid fire of multiple bursts. Intensity goes from 1 to 1/128, but even at full power, the cycle time is very reasonable with fresh batteries. As for potency, I have taken bird shots many feet away at ISO 400 with excellent results. A great alternative to the big names if you want quality, power, and reliability without emptying your wallet.

GREAT flash! This is my second Yongnuo flash (the first one I got was the 560 ex iii which is manual) and I love it! I love Yongnuo products, they are very affordable and you get more than what you pay for! Comparing it to a Canon flash this is a great deal. I would want a little bit of more power from this flash, but it's okay I don't have any complains. The HSS mode works as expected even wirelessly (with my YN622s). The TLL mode is very accurate 95% of the times. The assist focus beam is finally accurate (the beam of the YN622s are soooo wrong). The construction quality is excellent. I dropped this flash once for about 3 feet tall with the YN622 attached and nothing happened to it, not even a single scratch!. This is definitely a great purchase.

I purchased a few of the YN560-III earlier this year along with the YN-22c ETT-L and was pretty happy with them for manual flash applications, but wanted something that would replace/supplement my more expensive Canons and the E-TTL capacity as well as the ability to shoot in High shutter speed sync mode. I purchased 2 of the Y568EXII and use them with the transmitters mentioned above. I am very happy with them, although I feel that the build on the body of the 560's is better (more similar to the Canon's I have) I did have a little bit of a learning curve and found that these flashes work much better when I control the flash settings in my camera (Canon 6D) In the camera menu I can manage all sorts of things and I have had fun with being able to have different groups set to different power outputs. I have had no problems with any of my Yongnuo products other than the occoasional user error and the fact that I have had to make sure that I have extra batteries on hand if I am shooting all day

The build quality is solid. It performs flawlessly, just like a Canon Speedlite and more. The best feature of this flash, in comparison to the Canon EX II series, is that there are sound prompts indicating proper/under-exposure as well as flash ready. I shot >1000 pictures with it on a 5D mark II, at a wedding this last weekend and never had to look at the back of the flash once since the sound keep me well informed. Yet, less than 10/1000s pics were shot when flash was not ready! Very different and so liberating. Canon flash users (like myself), you owe it to yourself to check this out even if cost is not a consideration.

DON'T BUY THIS! You should buy the Yongnuo YN-685 instead. It's newer and better and is only a tiny bit more expensive. Or if you are reading this in the future, get whatever the latest and greatest is from Yongnuo. Don't get me wrong, the 568EXII is a quality speedlight and Yongnuo is a good brand but the 568EXII not the best choice. After I bought two of these I figured out that optical communication was not going to work for me, I needed radio control so that I could use high speed sync and so that I could place my speedlights out of line-of-sight. I bought the 622 transceivers and 622-TX controller. So that's like $270 all together. I am not thrilled with them. It extra bulk, batteries and another two switches that I have to remember to turn off. After I got my 568EXIIs I figured out that I should have got the YN-685 models with built in radio control. I bought three of those now and they are perfect! I'm going to sell my 568EXIIs at a loss and replace them with more YN-685s.

I admit this has an unusual way of locking the batteries in. The model I got last week has 8 plastic tabs to hold the batteries in. Yes I have to be a bit careful with inserting batteries it, but I am really curious how others are breaking so many tabs off so that it does not latch. Either it has been changed or people are not grasphing the (slightly unusual) mechanics of how the door locks. I am using mine with a 5d Mark III and in TTL mode its spot on. I usually shoot in manual though. I am not an not very knowledgeable on flashes but I find this unit impressive. Its very intuitive. Using the 105mm mode I can take photos with the subject 20 feet away in the dark. I am going to get a wireless trigger so I can put it somewhere besides on my hotshoe. I don't like the flat look of a frontal flash, even a ceiling bounced flash on people. However, I am thankful I don't realy need a flash very often (mainly outdoors) with my f2.8 lens. I was shooting a corporate event and I found the flash would have been disturbing the people I was taking pictures of. However, on birds and nature I am loving how I can add to daylight to get increased depth of field. I am wanting to be able to bounce/diffuse the light for a softer feel and usually I don't shoot with a full frontal light anyway.

Great product, at a great great price. I am so thankful that I came across this product while researching flashes on YouTube. This flash would be comparable to the Canon 580ex II. When I first decided to get into off camera flash, I foolishly bought two Canon 430ex II flashes ($250 each). In my naivety, I just assumed that, because I owned a Canon DSLR, I needed to buy a Canon speedlite. Big waste of money. Of course, I still use them, but all future purchases will be Yonguo flashes. I am that happy with them. At the time of this review, I see the Canon 580ex II for sale on Amazon for $470. With the Yongnuo at under $100, I can almost buy 5 flashes and fill my softboxes full of them. To me, knowing what I now know, this is a no-brainer. I will NEVER buy Canon flashes again. I really don't do (or try not to do) on camera flash. So, I trigger this flash with the Yongnuo YN-622C-TX E-TTL transmitter and YN622C receivers. Yongnuo, you have created a fan here. Just keep producing good, inexpensive products that do what they're supposed to do, and I'll keep buying.

Only just received it, but the YN-568EX II performed flawlessly at a lengthy party shoot. So far, I couldn't be more pleased with its quality and results - and especially the price! Given my Canon 580 EXII has only consistently FAILED at embarrassing moments (I thought it was me, until it was too late) and has been a complete waste of money, this Yongnuo is a gem. So far. My Canon 430 EXII has always performed reliably. Seems I'm hardly the only customer disgusted with Canon's 580 EXII, yet pleased with the 430 EXII. If this Yongnuo holds up (seems others have had battery door issues), I'll definitely be acquiring more of them! UPDATE: I'm more than sold! I've used the YN-568EX II repeatedly and consistently for two months. Indoors at parties, direct and bounce. Outdoors for team shots (25 corporate teams, daylight, over 4 hours; using this for fill. Completely natural looking.). On the road for 10 days. Flawless, reliable performance in every situation. Perfect integration with my Canon 7D on-board controls. No battery "issues" whatever: they last as long as on Canon Speedlights. No issues with the battery door. At this price? A no-brainer. I'll be getting another.

If you're a photography wiz, you already know this is a great flash for novice to intermediately skilled photographers. Even many professionals will use these under certain circumstances. My skill level is of the novice variety but this was recommended to me by a professional photographer. Although I haven't explored ALL of the features and uses for this flash, my initial results when compared to my on board flash (Nikon D5300) were like night and day (haha...no pun intended, but it works...I'll take it). The light frequency used, turns an indoor evening shot into a well lit studio with a great frequency balance....soft and not too intense, but full and bright with true colors. They were right when they said a good flash is the first accessory upgrade one should consider for a new DSLR camera. Now I know why. Costco's Kirkland batteries drain fast...use Duracell and pack some extras...the great flash results you get from this flash will cost you batteries. That shouldn't be a surprise.

Arrived Friday, did a bridal session with it Saturday. Coupled with a pair of YN-622C transceivers, it went great. I don't know what Fremen is talking about. I shoot on a 6D and I used the meter in my camera to obtain good results on a sunset pic. I'll post some photos later. Fremen said if someone uses this flash at a wedding, you should be fired? Seriously? The flash works fine. Don't use TTL at a wedding I think is the better advice. If you know how to light a reception, this flash throws just as much light as the canon brands with only a marginal stop of light difference. Frankly, these lights are best for adding to ambient light anyway! Off camera, it was a joy to use on my outdoor portraits. Don't use product reviews to whine when you don't understand the tool, Fremen. Save your pennies and get some proper strobes if you're worried about weddings. In the mean time, stop debating. This flash is great for the price. $400 of savings? Yes please! I bought 3 with some yn622c and the new yn622 tx. Works awesome. 4 stars instead of 5, because I share some other concerns with the users about the battery door breaking. Definitely need to be careful when closing the battery door. Otherwise, construction is solid. Recycle was pretty fast at 2.8-9 seconds at full power, for me.

I am really loving this flash. So much so, I purchased another. I am using it primarily off-camera and with the YONGNUO YN-622C flash triggers. This was my first flash since owning a 540 EZ Canon flash years ago. Honestly, I cannot see spending the extra money on an equivalent Canon-branded flash. I just can't. A person could purchase 4 YONGNUO YN 568 flashes for the price of 1 Canon 600ex-rt. The Canon might be more robust, have better weather sealing, and a few more features. Does it make up for that substantial cost difference? That's a really tough argument to make. I've heard that earlier versions of this flash have had battery door issues due to the plastic material used in production. I did purchase 2 replacement doors from a popular bidding site. They arrived quickly from China from a company that works exclusively with YONGNUO. I haven't seen any indication that I'll need to replace them anytime soon, but I have them in case and it only set me back about $11. A few things I have noticed that might detract from these being absolutely stellar is the mounting foot. The locking ring is very small and if you have hands the size of an average American, you might find it difficult to get the ring to tighten or loosen. They also don't always sit that tightly in the hot shoe and even when tightened down, they can shift. It's not going to fall out, but the consequence is that the focus assist beam is not centered correctly. Using these primarily off-camera - I'm not too worried about that. Just repeat to yourself, I can buy 4 of these for the price of 1 Canon unit. Even if 1 or 2 fail, you've got redundancy which to me is important.

I ordered two of these and have not had them for very long yet, but I did hold off on the review long enough to make sure that they didn't die within the first few weeks. So far so good! I have tested these on a Canon 5D Mark II. The build quality is absolutely good enough for professional work, especially since they are less than half of what the Canon version costs. The bounce card and wide-angle diffuser are noticeably less sturdy, but I don't think they are so flimsy that it will be an issue. The tilt/swivel head doesn't lock like the Canon. I've actually come to like that about the Canon, but it's a very minor loss in my opinion. I would like another detent or two in the vertical direction- there one at 0 and one at 45 degrees, but nothing between. The power output is also slightly less than the Canon (I guess 1/3 stop or so), but nowhere near enough to complain- it's still excellent. The controls aren't quite as easy to use as the Canon in my opinion, but they aren't bad in any way. Adjustments just take a little longer. If you make adjustments through your camera's menu, there's obviously no difference between the two. High speed sync works wonderfully, just as it should.

You have read all of the reviews, and yes this is an amazing product (Just buy it!). What I like the most, is it is almost as equal to the 50EX II at 1/4th the price. What a sucker punch to Canon, and good for them. The ability to mass produce a product "close enough" to the giant canon. I love competition, just love it. Also I paired this up by using the Yongnuo YN-622C triggers, another great product. I am sooooo glad I did not drop a ton of $$ for the Canon 600 flash and their radio trigger, this is much better cause you can use many types of Speedlight's, not "just" canon 600 series.

Okay this is going to sound silly, but I love this flash. This was the first flash I ever bought in this class. Since I'm not a Pro I would never pay the price for the Canon OEM unit. This unit has way more features than I ever plan to use but it does the job well. I didn't expect it would be as robust as the Canon unit but I'm not a Pro and don't use it extensively. Much to my surprise it stopped working (would not fire) after only 2 months light use.. I contacted the Tomtop Seller and they were very responsive and provided me return instructions and offered me factory repair or 80% discount to purchase a new unit. I opted for factory repair. I returned the unit and all accessories in original packaging (I paid return shipping) . In approximately 2 1/2 weeks I had a new looking, fully working unit delivered to my door direct from China. Throughout the whole process the seller (MySunGlobal) kept me informed of the process through emails. According to the tracking information 5 days after the replacement unit shipped in China it arrived at my door. How do they do that?

For some reason I wanted lights I can take outside and possibly mount on a stand instead of having on my cameras hot shoe. At first I purchased and rushed the YN-560 to my resident. I was so excited, but the more I tinkered with the HSS and 2nd mirror settings, I realized none of these features were working. I could not get sync past 1/250 inspite of the reviews on youtube and so forth. I immediately mailed them (2) back. I already own a 430ex II by Cannon, and am very familiar with its setting and features. I can get the sync to 1/8000 both on and off camera. Unfortunately for Cannon, I did not want to spend $600 on their 580ex II. Many, if not all of the reviews compared the YN-568ex and the Cannon 580ex II as being virtually equal in every regard. So now I ordered the less expensive YN-568ex. Once received, I immediately inserted the battery's and set to 1/250 to test for speed and clarity. Ok, they work. I then increased the speed (All 3 flashes) to 1/1000 and higher to 1/4000 with no issues. I feel excited as a brand new child getting permission to engorge himself on candy.

I am an intermediate/aspiring photographer and shoot manual, but I was never happy with my low-light indoor photos. A friend asked me to shoot her wedding and I knew that I needed something to take my photos to the next level and to ensure that the lighting was right for indoor wedding shots. This flash did exactly that! I love the ettl - just attach the flash and start shooting. Hold the shutter button down halfway and zoom a little for the flash to pick up on what you are photographing. You can play around with the strength of the flash (ex: -2/3) depending on how strong you need the flash to be. The pictures turned out great! It was so nice to finally have no noise with my indoor photos. I even used the flash during the outdoor ceremony because they stood in a gazebo, which made them very dark while the outside lighting was light. I was able to shoot at the back of the audience and have their faces well-lit. Recycle time was not noticeable, I felt as though I could shoot continuously. I set up the tripod and got a group shot of everyone at the wedding at the end of the night when it was completely dark out and the photo came out great. My friend LOVES the photos and I couldn't have done it without the flash. I highly recommend this flash, especially at the price! Note that it is a slave only. Also, I bought the eneloop 4 pack rechargeable batteries and shot for about 6 hours before they went dead. I recommend buying the 8 pack if you are shooting for more than 4-6 hours.

I love this flash! The screen is easy to read and clear, however, it did take me a bit to read through the manual as the English side could use some work. It can be a pretty powerful flash and the HSS works wonderfully. I've also tried it off camera and have only fired it maybe 150 times since I've bought it about a week ago. I can say that it hasn't misfired or malfunctioned yet, so this looks to be a promising buy. I will update in a few months to let you know if I still love it or not, UPDATE 10/21/2013 Since buying this flash, I've photographed over a dozen weddings in excess of over 10 hours each. During the weddings, I use the Canon 580exII that the main photographer loans out to me. I can honestly say that it's on par with Canon as far as consistency and quality of light. I've actually switched the Canon out for the Yongnuo when it was acting glitchy. There is a difference in build quality, but it's nothing that I can't handle, as I'm VERY careful with my gear. One thing I have noticed is that the side battery pack door is starting to stick out a little, and it actually popped open during a reception. Others have had the same issue as well, but I will fix this with some gaffer's tape, so no sweat. I still love this flash. I have version II on order so I can start a 3 light set up. Overall, with the exception of the battery door, no problems. This is a flash on par with the big brands, and it will literally save you hundreds of dollars.

I got this flash for the ETTL feature since I want to start messing with that now. I've used it in conjunction with my YN-560III and everything works flawlessly! The build quality is great and the swivel isn't loose by any means. I love that so I don't have to worry about my angle moving on me. Only thing I noticed is when you first add batteries and try to close the door, it's kinda though to close. Don't force it! The reason is the springs inside the compartment are me and need to be compressed a bit. Take your finger and push the batteries in one at a time to soften the spring. Then the door closes with ease. Otherwise you may damage the door.
