My main purpose for purchasing the YN560-TX was so I could use it my GH4 and Fuji x-t20 (along with YN560 IV). In order to fit onto GH4 hot shoe without forcing it, I had to grind down 4 of the 5 pins using a Dremel. NOTE: It's important to KEEP the center pin as it provides the communication link between camera and transmitter. Actually, the other pins have a purpose as well, but for Canon/Nikon cameras (depending on model). Overall, I'm pleased with the purchase. I knew beforehand (by reading other reviews) that the four pins (see photo) would be a problem with GH4, thus I was well prepared going into the purchase that I would have to modify unit.

I have been using Yongnuo 560-II and 560-III for quite some time for their power and simplicity of use in the studio. The -II I used with YN603 and procured -III when I needed more flash since they feature the 603 receiver. Last time I wanted to expand my pool of small flash, Yongnuo had come up with their YN560-TX which allows for simple remote control of up to six independent groups of 560-III and -IV. I procured it and also a pair of 560-IV which I reviewed separately. The setup is trivial when used with -IV and very easy when used with -III. all are cross-compatible. In addition, don't give your older YN603 away just yet: they can trigger the 560-TX remotely using the trigger cord that came with your 603 connected betweeen your camera and the 560-TX. They can also be controlled by it to trigger any other flash including YN560-II, Canon 580ExII or studio monolight (using a small, inexpensive PC sync cord). Of course these are only manual in that case and cannot be adjusted from the camera position, plus they always fire when the -TX shoots (they cannot be assigned to a group). A quick note about the 603: there are Nikon and Canon kits, that depend on the cable provided with them. Your camera requires a specific cable to control the shutter release, make sure you order the right one. See my 603 review for more details. The first setup I came up with for tests was a cheesy snapshot of a Brunca mask I had here using two -IV and one -III, see below. More on that picture in my review for the YN560-IV. All in all if you are really on a budget and you want small inexpensive manual flashguns to do strobism, the YN560-III and -IV are great, and the -IV can control remotely other -IV and -III. If you want a little more ease of use and don't need a -IV on your camera, the YN560-TX featured here is a great option.

This is a great item. I did find it somewhat difficult to set up with the Yongnuo 560III flash, because I could not figure out how to set the group on the flash. Unfortunately, the instructions are Chinese/English and were difficult for me to understand. However, there are several helpful articles I found online which explained the process, and once set up properly, the transmitter works flawlessly in remotely adjusting both the flash zoom and power. For the price, it can't be beat. It is great to be able to adjust your flash without having to go over to each flash and adjust each manually.

I literally ran home when I saw this thing was finally delivered to the house! I currently have 2 Yongnuo 560III flashes and was frustrated every time I needed to change the power or zoom on them because I had to either pull down the light stand or open the softbox to do so. But when I saw that the YN560 TX had come out I couldn't wait to get this thing on my camera and try it out. So far I haven't really done a through run of the thing but from my early setup and testing it works flawlessly. I saw some other folks post some videos of how to connect it to your flashes which made it easy as can be. Simple turn on the flashes and the YN560 TX, put them on the same channel, put the flashes on the "- -" setting, push the 2 buttons on the TX, press the "ok" button the flashes and your good to go. Obviously there’s a few more steps but it was pretty much that easy. Now that I have the means to adjust my flash power and zoom without going back and forth between stand and camera, I can definitely start doing some more serious lighting with my 560 III. I plan on getting a couple more 560 III to go along with this thing so I can really use them on the go versus lugging those big old' strobes. Now if you do have some strobes/monolights, you can obviously only trigger them with this, so don't buy it expecting to control your lights power from this, but an actually commander. This only controls the power and zoom of the 560 III so far, maybe it will work with the new Yongnuo's equivalent to the Canon 600 down the line. Overall, rock solid product that I highly recommend because of the cost, convenience and so far, the performance. Great Job Yongnuo...keep the great affordable products coming!!!

I got it on Ebay from a Hongkong Seller. Arrived in 5 days, not bad (I live in California). As the other reviewer pointed out already, activating the group function on the 560 III flash can be a little tricky, you need to go back and forth between your flash and the 560 TX controller (took me 10 mins to figure that out). The manual is not great, but usable. After having that been taken care of, it works flawlessly with my 560 III. I can remotely change the output and zoom. Highly recommended. I only have one 560 III, I cannot comment on how well this controller works with multiple 560IIIs.

My goal was to build an inexpensive, portable lighting solution for carry-on travel in a small pack. What I discovered was essentially an entry to studio lighting that would give professional results within certain limits. Consider an Alien Bees B800 for about $280 gives you a maximum of 320 Ws output. Four 560 iiis will cost the same and give you similar power, but you have the added benefit of being able to split them up for smaller tasks. The cost of this controller plus a bracket is still far cheaper than similar triggers and receivers for the Alien Bees setup, so right out of the gate, you're ahead. Where this setup falls short are the ability to use eTTL/iTTL, recycle time, and number of steps to setup. However, all of these things can be mitigated to some extent. For example, if you are only using one or two modifiers (soft boxes for example) , setup time isn't that different, and many of us are familiar with full manual control for lighting, anyway. Some prefer it. Recycle time can be reduced by using external battery packs. I know not all of this relates to the trigger itself, but I wanted to share a little of the thought process I went through when considering heads versus speedlights. The speedlight option is very flexible, and I can work around the power limitations pretty well. So, on to the trigger. It's very simple and has everything you need for manual control over up to six groups. That's more than most people will ever need, but it's great to have as an option. Group assignment and selection is pretty easy once you've done it the first time, and you can keep track of your lighting ratios by glancing at the back of the LCD - something you can't do easily with some other non-display systems. I was surprised to see how useful the zoom control is when working at distances. I sometimes mount flashes to my backdrop's cross bar, and using a combination of zoom and power lets me gain some measure of control over spill and distribution without having to resort to snoots. It's of course not perfect, but for firing at 30'-50', you can get a measurable change in edge falloff. Sweet. Finally, the form factor is large enough to be easily handled, but doesn't get too obtrusive. Any smaller and it might be difficult to work with, but I can appreciate smaller, side-mounted triggers. One thing I wish it had built in was a remote shutter receiver. Right now, you have to hang another unit from your camera body, but if you could just drop a cord from this unit to your remote release port, that would be seriously handy. I've not used this unit extensively, but it seems reasonably well built, and so far has not failed at distances of up to 25m (75'). At this price, just get it and a couple of 560 iii flashes if for nothing else than having a portable lighting solution.

I bought this by mistake because I wanted the version that works with Nikon cameras. This one still worked, but I have sent it back to get the correct version as the fit for the pins on the hot shoe is better. Nevertheless, as far as the product is concerned, I would make the same comments as for the Nikon version that I have now. Review follows: Although the instructions are not the easiest to follow, I still gave this 5 stars because the product is so good. It can handle up to 6 slave units with radio triggers as well as others with the optical flashes. The ability to adjust the power and zoom directly from the transmitter, rather than having to go to each flash unit and change the settings there makes a huge difference. Even if you only use one additional flash unit this is worthwhile because of the flexibility of placing the flash unit to its best advantage..

I would give this 5 stars, but it took me 45 minutes to figure out how to get my YN560-II's to sync to it. Other than that, it's a great unit that works VERY well. I've done several shoots with it and have had no problems whatsoever adjusting flash power remotely from pretty far distances too. Very worth it. However, if you are needing another flash on your camera, look into the YN560-IV, which now includes the ability to control the other flashes from the flash itself, thus eliminating this unit. However, if you have no need for a flash on your camera and just use them off-camera, this thing is perfect.

I gave this 5 stars, but my experience with my FIRST transmitter was less than stellar. I purchased this transmitter along with several Yongnuo YN560-III speed lights that have the integrated receiver. They work together and allow you to manually control the output of the speed lights remotely. The first transmitter I received would NOT fit in ANY of my cameras hot shoe the way it was SUPPOSED to fit (I have a Nikon D600, a Nikon D7000, a Nikon D90 and a Nikon D80). Strangely enough, it DID fit into the hot shoe backwards which was a big problem. Facing the opposite direction, and working properly, the screen to make adjustments to flash output was facing forward – i.e. the subject I was shooting. If I wanted to change the output of one of the speed lights, I had to turn the camera around, make a change and then continue shooting. So, using Amazon’s awesome return policy, I sent it back for a refund and ordered another one; hoping this was just a fluke. The second one arrived and fits perfectly, with the adjustment screen facing the back of the camera, as it’s supposed to, making speed light output adjustments a breeze! This works VERY well when combined with the Yongnuo YN560-III speed lights. A very effective and cost conscious solution.

With this, I also bought a pair of Yongnuo YN560 IV wireless speedlites, the most updated version as of this writing. Yongnuo should have produced their own How-To video by now to explain these, which is their only drawback. Printed instructions are horrible, translated from Chinese, I assume. They're rated right alongside the Canon products that cost at least twice as much, and are every bit as good. My only regret is that there is a cheaper kit with this YN560-TX and two YN560 III speedlites as a package. The only difference between the version III and version IV is the IV's ability to transmit a signal (as does the YN560-TX). Shoulda bought the cheaper version III's.

I shoot with Fujifilm gear so I don't have much available in the way of flash gear like Canon or Nikon users do. Because of this, I have been using a three-flash setup of Yongnuo strobes for the past year. The first photo shoot I had after I received my YN560-TX was for "Baby's First Christmas" in a cramped apartment with poor lighting. I set up two umbrellas and put the controller on my XT1 and proceeded to dial in the flash levels perfectly. The outcome couldn't have been better: not only was the flash always spot on, but I was able to dial things in with a more professional appearance, instead of running back and forth between the speedlites pushing buttons on them. For the price, this controller and a set of Yongnuo flashes is a boon to folks who aren't ready to spend several hundred dollars on higher end gear but want to have great control. The quality is good, fit and finish are in line with other Yongnuo gear. The controls are adequate, though I wish they had put a rocker next to the D-pad to select the flash: you have to press the top left button repeatedly to switch channels. Also, the pairing process is poorly documented, but a bit of searching online gives the magic handshake needed to get things going. This flash controller works with my Fujifilm XT1, XPro1, and X100s. I put big labels on the three strobes, "A", "B", and "C", to make things easier when working with the controller. Because of the quirky pairing process, I don't want to do it again, so if one strobe breaks at a shoot, I'll simply grab another from the bag and use its letter instead.

Recently bought it just to try it out. Works like a charm. Just remember to set the group setting on your Yongnuo 560 III or it won't fire. The trick is to hold the zoom/check and Hz/FN down at the same time on the trigger. This will cause your flash to recognize the trigger and allow you to set the group on your flash. You will notice all of your screen light up on the flash when you do this. When you see that, hit the center ok button on the flash and you will turn on the group setting on your flash. Happy shooting. 4 stars simply for the confusion of turning the groups on in the begining.

I use this with 3 Yongnuo 560IIIn speedlights mounted in soft boxes, along with my Fuji X-T1. Super easy to use, and to adjust each speed light's power setting remotely. Used it on a couple of shoots so far. It works great...eliminates the need for remote triggers! I just take the 560-TX off the camera and carry it with me when metering the subject. Simply position your flash meter, fire the "test" button, and you've got your reading. Then head back to the camera, put the remote back on the camera hot shoe and I'm all ready to shoot. The only tricky thing is syncing the 560-TX to the speedlights.

This is a fantastic bit of kit for using your Yongnuo 560 III flashes (works with other models too!) off camera. I'm using this with an Olympus OM-D EM-1 and 5 560 III flashes and it's nothing short of amazing--especially when you consider how affordable it is. -= Setup and use =- Setting up your strobes to use the trigger is a bit tricky (there a couple of great Youtube videos showing you exactly how it's done), but once the strobes are configured, it's dead simple to use the trigger and adjustments are intuitive and easy to make. It's incredibly easy to change the output and/or zoom settings of your strobes.

I purchased this unit and two Yongnuo YN560-III flash units and have found that they work very nicely together. I'm tempted to deduct a star for the users manual because the Chinese to English translation isn't very good, but I am tech savvy enough that I was able to figure out how to pair the flash units to this remote unit. (For those who might be struggling with this, I found the trick is to understand that the flash unit needs to be set to whatever group you want to use. The control unit has several different groups available, but it's just a dumb broadcaster - the flash itself is where you choose which group settings to "listen" to.) I found that the transmitting range was plenty good for what I have tried to do and actually changing the settings on each flash group is fairly easy once you've worked through it a few times. I can't really speak to the durability of the unit yet as I've only used it a few times, but it appears to be well made and I don't have any reason to doubt that it will continue to work well for some time to come. One other thing to note: This flash control system is considered a "dumb" system in that the only thing it knows about the camera is that the camera asked for the flash to fire. The power settings are all set manually, so it may involve more work than a fully automatic flash system. I can't reduce the star rating for that, however, because at this price point I don't think you will be able to find a fully automatic flash system, and if you do, I doubt it will be built with the apparent quality of this system. I have not tried this controller with any other flash units, but I believe this is meant to work only with the YN56-III flash units.

I'm a long time Yongnuo fan and a "Strobist" . I use a variety of flashes, both Yongnuo (460, 560, 560 III) and Canon (430 II, 580 II), as well as RF-602 and RF-622 Triggers. I mostly use manual flash, so I don't actually use my RF-622 all that often. I admit I largely got this because it sounded cool and was so cheap that I didn’t flinch at an unnecessary purchase. Most of my off-camera flash work is done in the studio, where it’s not really that difficult to reach over and adjust the power on a flash. But I have two uses where it’s really useful: soft boxes where the flash is internally contained, and in architectural/real estate work where I’ll put a flash in another room or even outside a window. The trigger works great, as well as my RF-602 or RF-622 units. I use it to trigger my YN-560 III flashes directly, and it will also trigger any flash on a RF-602 receiver (can also work with RF-603), but it’s just a dummy trigger; it can’t adjust power/zoom. I haven’t had any issues with reliability yet, but I’ll report back after some heavier use. The locking mechanism is the same screw type that Yongnuo uses, not as nice as Canon’s latch, but not a big deal. The display is quite nice and is backlit. The unit feels really large, but I’m used to the tiny RF-602 transmitter. It’s a nice size for reading the display and the control buttons, but it feels bulky on the hotshoe. But if you’re used to having a flash on the hotshoe then you won’t even notice. I only one issue with it: There’s just one button for selecting groups, so you have to scroll down. I wish they used the up and down arrow for selecting groups instead of fine tuning (1/3 stop increments) the power. I select groups far more often then I fine tune. In summary: it’s a great unit that does exactly what it says: it’ll fully control (power and zoom) YN 560 III units without additional triggers, plus activate either RF-602 or RF-603 triggers that you have. Given the ridiculously cheap price I’d say get it anyway. But just how much you’ll use the remote power/zoom control depends on what type of work you do. For outdoor work, or real estate photography, I’ll take full advantage of it. But in a small studio I’ll probably still just use my RF-602 since it’s just as easy to reach over and adjust flash power directly.

I use this with a trio of Yongnuo 560IV flash units, and it's pretty much perfection for a manual strobist. The unit is lightweight, but the buttons have a good feel and the display is crisp and bright. The interface is simple and intuitive, easy to be up and running in no time. I use this setup for portraits and head shots, it's been a 100% reliable location kit for over 20 sessions. The 560 system lacks AF assist lamps, HSS, or TTL, but stays in my kit because it's reliable and cheap and I can take the same pictures without them. If I ever lost my lighting bag, I could replace the whole kit for less than the price of a single flash unit from the bigger brands (and I would, in a heartbeat).

As a photography enthusiast over time I have found that I prefer manual flashes as I feel I have more control of the lighting and I know I much prefer the price of the flashes versus the TTL flashes. I did however hate running around between flashes to set power and zoom. Especially when some of my soft-boxes inclose the flash adding to the difficulty. This device is absolutely awesome! Not only can I adjust the power but also the zoom remotely. Works as advertised and you sure can’t beat the price. The ONLY issue I had was figuring out how to get the flashes in the right mode as the documentation needs some serious help. I did a web search and found people who had the same issue and they explained it well. If you use YN560-III flashes then this is a must have.

I needed a way to trigger my strobe wirelessly on my GX8. Normally, I just use a Yongnuo rf603c II trigger but it doesn't work on the GX8. With this, I am able to trigger the rf603c II although since these are "dumb" triggers, the whole interface on the YN560-tx is useless since it won't affect the exposure. Paired with the 560 flashes though, this is a great way to take control of their output without having to walk to each one to adjust. Also, if you are using this with the GX8, remember to disable silent mode otherwise it won't work.

WOW. This is worth it. I got this and 4 yn560iii to shoot a wedding. One of the flashes crapped out on me but I had a back up. With this I could control all 4 flashes and because they where so high on light stands it made it very nice to be able to do it remotely. My assistat had a 603 trigger on his camera and we both could trigger the flashes furring the reception. I shoot the flashes in a studio and they are always hurried inside the soft odds so being able to control them remotely makes life so much better. It can be tricky getting everything working (I had to resort to YouTube) but once I got it working never any problems. Good investment, inexpensive, and works.
