I have a YN-568EX, YN-568EX II and a Nikon SB700. The 568EX II like the SB700 can do Auto FP (high speed sync). The 568EX cannot do high speed sync. The menus are easy to navigate, but not as easy as the Nikon, since the flashes are designed around the Cannon brand I would guess they are similar to the Cannon models. I bought this YN flashes for there i-TTL capability using CLS to control them directly from my D600. I have never had a problem with CLS (creative lighting system) to control my off camera flashes in manual or i-TTL. I bought the SB700 first because I wasn't sure how reliable the YN flashes would be, but you really cannot tell the difference when working off camera. Both of the YN work in the camera's hot shoe, but some functionality like Auto FP or BL mode doesn't seem to work on the 568EX or 568EX ii. After purchasing the SB700 I figured that I would give the YN a chance since they are a 1/3 the price. IMO they work great!! If you only need one flash don't hesitate to purchase one of the YN flashes, just know they may not have all the functionality of the Nikon speedlites when mounted in the hot shoe. Put one on a light stand with or without a modifier and you would be hard pressed to tell the difference. I use CLS all the time with my pop up flash as the commander. I recently started looking at the Pocket Wizard Mini/Flex and the Phottix Odin (TTL systems) to trigger the flashes thru walls or other obstructions. I was surprised to learn that neither of these triggers work with the YN flashes. Both manufactures only test with the name brand flashes. I have read over and over about problems with Nikons CLS not working in direct sun light and that maybe be in some situations, but before you spend the money for the trigging system be sure to test for yourself. I have been very impressed with how well this system works in my workflow.

First off, let me say I’ve used this a few times already just testing the waters, and I love it! I haven’t picked up the manual yet, but so far haven’t had to. It functions much like my canons, so finding a function isn’t a headache in the slightest. I’ve also heard people saying this flash doesn’t recycle well... were they using dead batteries? I can fire this quite quickly on high power with no disappointments. The only reason I’m not giving this a 5 is I was led to believe it controlled slaves via RT-type means, not via an optical flash signal.

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.

The flash is a very cost effective alternative to the Canon brand flashes. I have used it only a few times yet it works very well with my Canon 7D. The battery door tabs break due to the pressure from the three batteries that push against the left side of the battery compartment door. I now have to order a replacement door from the manufacturer in China since the door no longer sits flush with the flash body. You can do a Google search to see what the issue is. Even with this issue I still recommend this flash. It is of very good quality otherwise and will save you several hundred dollars over the Canon equivalent. I received the replacement door and it was very easy to install once I watched a youtube video on how to do it. DO NOT manhandle the door when trying to remove it. You need to use a small flathead screwdriver to remove the door. See the video. Going forward I need to keep the batteries out of the flash or the same thing will happen to the new door.

This is my second Yongnuo flash, as I had the older 460 for a couple of years "which performed well till I sold it". With the nice experience I had with the 460 and my need for a more solid and advanced flash - without having to pay for a Canon - I decided to go for the newest Yongnuo, and I don't regret it. First, the flash is VERY well built. To be quite honest, I expected something cheap but it has by far exceeded my expectations. Very solidly built with strong metal bases, very nice easy to read LCD screen, high quality plastic body, and nice pouch as well. The flash performance is also quite impressive, TTL is working like a charm and I can control all the options from the Flash menu in my 7D. The flash light is much stronger than the older 460, but I have to admit it's not as strong as the Canon's 580 EXII which was expected for me at this price tag. I could get very nice luminance indoors, but using it as a fill flash in morning light wasn't impressive, quite good though. Overall, I liked the product and I wish Yongnuo can continue with enhancing the products further.

I haven't used the flash very long so time will tell how it holds up over time; but for a hundred bucks this thing does 98 percent of what the $400 Canon version will do. I can buy three of these AND three yn 622 c flash triggers for a little more than one Canon 560. A couple of things to note though: 1) this doesn't have weather sealing like the Canon's supposedly do, so if you shoot in the rain with a flash (not sure why you would) probably not a good idea. 2) you can't hook an external battery pack to it like you can with the Canon. However, I have not noticed any issues with the battery door hinge breaking as others have reported and it seems fine. The recycle time is actually pretty good. On half power I can shoot of 3-5 shots before it lags at all and needs to recycle. On full power it takes a good full 2 seconds between each firing but I don't think the Canon is much better. Update: I ended up shooting as wedding with this flash and it performed well. It did end up overheating at one point but once it cooled it continued to work fine. Any flash will overheat so this wasn't a design flaw. Overall I am quite impressed with what you get for a hundred bucks. The only thing that might be nice to see is an actual locking button on the swivel part of the flash head so it wouldn't tilt down with a flash modifier on it when hit. But it stays where it is well enough.

The 568 is a gem- my only gripe is this- I couldn't find ANYTHING in their documentation on how to activate the (claimed 2.4GHz internal receiver- which led to my buying 3 622C trigger receivers to handle the same job- If only- if only, the documentation wasn't written in Mandarin- English!! It would be a tremendous step for Yongnuo to hire a really good writer and Editor to translate that cheesy little document- I know of a good photographer in NYC who would be a great resource; her best friend is a world-class Editor, and between theme just might get a worthy product. I'd give a 5-star rating if that 2.4GHz receiver was approachable-

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.

I have 4 other YN flashes (560 III @ 560 IV) that I shoot in manual mode using the YN 560 TX and they work quite well for environmental portraiture or when the subject to flash is constant. Over time I've learned to be able to dial in my shot within one or two shots but when using it to bounce flash it's a little problematic. The YN 568 EX II is the only TTL flash I own. I purchased it mainly to shoot indoor bounce flash when my subjects are moving about, and for that purpose this flash works wonderfully. Set it to TTL take the bounce shot and if I have to make an adjustment I use the Canon FEC. It makes bouncing flash very easy to dial in. I've had no problem with this flash all I had to do was to insert the batteries set it to TTL and adjust my flash head for the direction of light and shoot away making FEC adjustments if needed. I've had no problem with this flash. Straight from the box it has worked flawlessly for bouncing flash indoors.

I work as a second shooter and prior to buying this flash I had an old 430ex and a manual Yongnuo. Eventually the 430ex, which never performed up to par for my needs, broke and I was forced the rent the 600ex every time I had an event. I finally decided to give this model a try and it really is crazy how good this thing is. It is easy to use, produces excellent light and feels like a quality product. My only gripes are the fact that the screw on ring is tough to get to even for my small hands, and if over tighten it can be difficult to unscrew. Also, not having the port to connect an external battery pack is unfortunate. I now use this flash with the the 622 triggers and a YN560 as a kicker lighter and it's pretty awesome. Best part is that the whole set up cost me the same as one 600ex! Talk about value. the At this price, you can't go wrong! Update of of 6/11/15 The flash was working great and then all of a sudden it would not synch with my 5DMKII. It would fire but lost synch with the shutter giving me dark, underexposed images that were unusable. took care of me even though my purchase was more than 30 days ago and I'm probably going to order a second flash to give it a try again.

shot a few events with it since i've had it over a month now well, upon first firing it up it DID seem to have to "wake up" so to speak, red light alert was staying on etc., just acting glitchy in general for about the first hour, luckily i had a backup, but when i brought it back out and tested a few different settings it was fine and has been since. I've coupled it as the master with a lesser youngnuo yn-560 speedlight off camera with an umbrella for some oudoor and studio headshots as well and it's been pretty tidy a combo. I recommend their speedlights. Cut your costs, and they put our more than ample light if you take time with your settings and get it right.

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.

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.

My photo friend had been shooting with Yongnuo flashes for sometime and recommended I add a flash to my wish list for a future purchase. After a recent photo shoot along the Amgen bicycle race, I noticed the riders faces were dark and difficult to see the stressed features so I took the plunge and bought a Yongnuo for myself. Within days of the flash arriving, I found myself at an outdoor, evening 40th birthday party where the flash was required. I had no training, no practice and the pictures captured on the 50mm were stunning. The birthday girl was so pleased with the pictures and I was too. I only have about 4-6 hours of practice with the flash, but I know I have a winner in my bag. I would recommend to others. I use a Canon 7D.

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.

Photos taken both with manual settings and and ETTL match my 550EX near perfectly with an exception. When bouncing off the ceiling, the YN568EXII must have exposure increased 2/3 to 1 to to match the perfectly exposed bounced flash of the 550EX. I haven't tried it yet with the Yonguo triggers, but I'm sure they will function just fine. The camera (5DMkIII) is able to control the flash directly from the screen. A minor annoyances is that when the 568 is mounted and is tightened, its a bit loose in the hot shoe. It won't come off the camera, but wobbles a bit. It doesn't sit firmly like the Canon counter part. Other than this, it seems well made.

Good flash for the money. Powerful. Mine overexposes a little, needs 1/2 stop under to get right, no biggie really. No internal adjustment for that (sadly). Gets the job done. Data contacts can be finicky, keep them clean and you'l do ok. Occasionally just goes bonkers with either my 5Dii or 7D and the YN-622. Battery out reset when that happens, but its rare and only at startup after a long period of being off (weeks). Once up and running, it gets the job done. Did a long weekend at Daytona shooting Harley Davidson's.... ran like a champ! (EDIT: 7-18-15) Like so many other folks, my battery door broke. The tabs break off. There is a lot of battery pressure on the door, and the tabs are not up to the task of holding it in place. Ha! I came up with a fix. Very easy fix for folks even basically mechanically inclined. At LOWE'S you can buy a little bag of nylon thumbscrews in the hardware section. They're in the drawers for specialty fasteners. You can get them in 6-32 and 8-32 thread sizes. Get the 8-32. Also... if you don't already own an 8-32 tap, in the tools section you can get a nice little kit of 8-32 tap and the proper drill for it. Get those. It's easy to locate a spot in the bottom center part of the (broken) door to accept the drill and tap. Close the door, carefully drill a hole through the door and inner part of the battery compartment. Open the door. Thread the hole in the battery compartment with the tap. Get the next larger size drill and open up the hole in the door to give it some wiggle room (don't make it too big, just one size larger drill will do). You want the thumbscrew to be able to slide through the door's hole and thread into the hole in the battery compartment. You'll find that this works PERFECTLY to solve the broken door issue, as the thumbscrew is a very secure fasterner - even if it looks a bit Frankenstein'ish. Other than that, no issues after two years (almost). I had the YN565 and the display is not nearly as nice. The 568exII is very well thought out.... works great. I'll be getting two more, maybe three more, for an upcoming small product shoot. Coupled with the YN-622, they make a really good small product light set.

I know a lot of people either get a good Flash or a bad one. I have purchased two now and I am very happy with my purchases. I don't have expectations that this flash is as good or better than a Canon and I think that is what sets me apart from most people. I have dropped this flash off of a 6ft light stand and expected it to be broken but no, it was completely fine. I know it will not take many hits like that but at this price I would not be too upset if it was to break. As far as the flash set up, I am using it mainly as an off camera flash with a Yongnuo YN-622C flash controller. Sometimes the flash will fail to fire which I am not sure if it is the flash or controller malfunctioning, buffer issue. I also recently replaced the normal batteries with Eneloop batteries so maybe that will fix the issue.

J'ai fais l'acquisition de 4 Flashs Yongnuo Yn560 IV (flashs Manuels) ainsi que le contrôleur de la même marque,(YN 560-TX) pour une utilisation en stobisme. Çà a été un peu laborieux de les faire se reconnaître entre eux sans un manuel en français mais avec les tutoriaux on fini par trouver. Heureusement çà reste mémorisé quand on remet l'ensemble en marche. Ensuite peu importe si la technologie des flashs est simple ou compliquée vu que tout est piloté facilement depuis le contrôleur. J'aime faire de la photo sans me compliquer la vie avec la technique ! Je possède déjà le système de flash Nikon qui fonctionne par infrarouge et donc la portée est limitée. J'essaye le système yongnuo qui lui fonctionne par radio, la portée est de 100m en extérieur et de 25m en intérieur... à tester, mais bon je n'aurais jamais besoin d'autant ! Reste à tester tout çà en situation studio.

C'est le deuxième flash de cette marque que j'achète. Il est vraiment génial pour un prix défiant toute concurrence. Je fais de la photo en loisir et je n'ai pas les moyens ou l'utilité d'un flash de marque Canon ou Nikon. Je suis entièrement satisfaite de ce produit et je le recommande à tous ceux qui souhaitent se lancer dans la photographie au flash avec un petit budget. Comme c'est un flash manuel, il va falloir s'habituer au début et faire quelques tests. Mais si vous n'êtes pas dans l'urgence et que des réglages en amont du shooting sont possibles, ce flash répondra parfaitement à vos attentes.
