Flash diffuser cover ( for free )

  • Try asking a question. If you're wondering if this comes with the free flash diffuser that you would get directly from yongnuo, the answer is "no". Mine did not include the cover.

Does this work with Sony A7R2 ?

  • Works with any camera basic hot sue function you set the power manually don't worry about TTL they are never accurate so you end up having to manually compensate or set anyways so there is no point for the function

    私が購入した個体のクセかもしれませんが照射角度が若干下目になるのと、たまに飛びますが、この価格帯の製品としては及第点だと思います。購入から約3ヶ月経ちますが機能的にはEOS 60Dでは問題なく使用できてます。 マニュアルが英語と中国語なので初めて使う方にはちょっと難しいかもしれませんが、キヤノンのスピードライトを使用している方なら、ある程度勘で使いこなせるかと思います。 TTL、ハイスピードシンクロができる製品ながらコンパクトなので、外出時の普段持ちも苦にならず状況をあまり選ばずに撮影の機会を増やしてくれるので、ホットシューに取り付けてのプライベートや趣味での使用であれば撮影バリエーションも増えて重宝すると思います。 プロであれば・・・人にもよると思いますが、明るさに不満が出ると思うので、近距離での撮影や演出上のスポット、補助光、サブで使用する感じでしょうか。 ガイドナンバー53となっていますが、実測はしてませんが使用感としては30後半~40台・・・かなという感じですが、1万円台前半で購入できる純正外製品なのでまぁこんなものでしょう。 どの程度の期間問題なく使用できるかにもよりますが、今のところ費用対効果が高く気に入ってるので、ガイドナンバーの高い他のYongnuo製スピードライトの購入も考えています。

    First of all let me say that I am not a professional photographer. I am someone who loves taking photos and experimenting with my Canon T4i. I was looking for an external flash mainly for off camera use (since my T4i already has a built in flash) so that I could continue on my path of learning and becoming more experienced. I looked at several models of flashes including original Canon flashes and cheaper alternatives such as this Yongnuo. I chose this model because it has E-TTL and it has a built in wireless receiver that works with the T4i's built in flash transmitter. I could have spent less on a manual (non TTL flash) but I am very glad I spent the extra money (about $40 extra) on this model as the built in wireless receiver, E-TTL, and HSS all make this a pleasure to use. *** Positive Points: *** - Has E-TTL which means the flash will automatically adjust its settings using information from the camera (cheaper models require you to guess how much flash you need and adjust manually) - Great build quality. I was scared that since this was "cheap" Chinese made flash it would not be a quality product but I was very wrong. This is built very well. - Built in Wireless functions work great with my Canon T4i (650d) and I do not need any external transmitters or receivers - It works well with the built in flash control menus on the T4i - The swivel and rotate head allows for a lot of flexibility in lighting your shots - The controls on back are simple and easy to use once you read the manual - The beep from the flash lets you know when it is ready for the next picture (this is great when the flash is off camera in a remote location. - LCD screen is relatively easy to read and the graphics are easy to decipher - The LED grid pattern that is projected really does allow the camera to focus faster - Comes with a nice sturdy stand for off camera use - Has a nice case for the flash - The contact points for the hot shoe mount are metal (though the ring is made of plastic) - Has a built in reflector screen *** Negative Points: *** - HEAVY. This adds a considerable amount of weight to the camera. The weight is not noticeable with the camera in your hands but if you leave it on your neck you will feel the difference - No battery meter on the display so you wont know if the batteries are weak until they are so low that the flash will not fire. - The screen is backlit for a few seconds if you press a button but sometimes this is not enough to see the settings. - The viewing angle of the LCD is poor when viewed from above - The Canon T4i still must have its flash enabled and fire a weak flash even when this external flash is set as the primary.

    作りも比較的しっかりとしていて良いのではないかと思います。私の場合は、カメラに取り付けて、E-TTLⅡで使うだけなので、同調さえしっかりとしてくれれば、それで目的は達していますので、初期設定のまま何もいじることなく(いじる場合はカメラ側で殆ど設定しています)なので、説明書も日本語の物が無くても、あまり影響はありません。マニュアルと、Multi、スレーブなど、有れば便利そうな機能が付いていますが、滅多に使わないと思います。(笑い) 使って見た感じでは、きちんと同調はしてくれています、ズームの音も気に成りません、ただ、私は使う事はないと思うので、どうでも良い事なのですが、このストロボの機能をフルに使いたい方には、使いにくい部分ではないかと思うのですが、裏のボタンの長押しや、2つを同時に押すなどは、やってみると案外使いにくいのではと思います。電源のオンオフさえも長押しですから。(笑い)ファンクション(Fn)による機能の設定等も、頻繁に変える部分ではないと思いますが、説明書を見なければ機能の設定は出来ないと思いますので、判断の難しい所です。いつも説明書が手元に有る状況で有れば良いのですが、その様な状況下での使用とは限りませんから、設定にまごつく事もあると思います。 気に成った点は、電池室の蓋を閉める時に、蓋の支点部分に思いの外、余分な力がかかっている事です。この為、この部分の耐久性がどの程度なのか少し不安があります。中国製ストロボは、他にも数個使用していますが、現在手元にある中では、一番閉めにくい蓋かも知れません。開ける時はバネで、90度開きますが、どうでも良い機能だと思います。(多少は電池の交換がしやすいかも知れませんが)ワイヤレス(Sc,Sn)スレーブ(S1,S2)は、有れば便利かなと思う機能の1つですが、私はあまり使う事はないのですが、Cannonの90EXと合わせて使っています、この組み合わせでは、安価でワイヤレス多灯で自動調光してくれるので、急に自分の腕が上がった様な錯覚さえさせてくれます。(笑い) 総じて、これだけ多機能の物が、この値段で手に入れば良いと思います。国産純正品が高すぎるのかも知れませんね。あとはどれだけ耐久性があるかですが、こればかりは使ってみなければ分かりませんので。(笑い)

    Unbelievable quality with quality control too. Works flawlessly on my T5i DSLR by CANON. This is a dedicated CANON ETTL-II Flash. (Sorry Nikon users...) Please take note of that! All zoom, f stop and camera functions display right on the flash LED Screen. I have to say, I really love it! Can't wait to put it to good use. Seriously, this is a dead ringer for the Canon 430 EX-II. It even uses the same flash diffuser box purchased with the Canon flash! Thank you Yongnuo! Thank you Tomtop!

    These are good but you got to consider you get what you pay for. They do get hot on full power so to solve that you buy 4 and place on a bracket and use all at 1/4 the power and get full power. You are still at 400 for 4 instead of 1 at 600 for the canon 600 series. Also mind you that the 600 canon has heat issues to. So to have the same solution you need 4 for 600 which comes in at 24. So this is a better choice. Or you can get one nissin the gm8000 which claims 1000 full power blast with no heat issue. So far I am happy with this. Also mind you if you use 1/32 power on 6 of these with the triangular brackets you can blast away 30 to 50 pictures within a couple of minutes and no heat and very fast recycle times. Good flash over all. I was working in the sun with the flash and I noticed that it is hard to see the settings in the bright sun. I like black and white led screens like youngnuo and other flashes have. The positive side is I took about 139 pictures and the flash did not even get lukewarm. This is a major thing. The flash runs cold. My youngnuo got very hot. The flash seems to be a performer. This flash is fully compatible with canon. I am able to enter all menus in the camera. I haven't found one thing I cannot access with this. But I can not be 100% certain for I never used any canon flashes that are 100% compatible so I don't see anything I would be missing. I use this on 2 60d bodies and one t3i. It works great. I done shoots macro all week and did not recharge yet. These are about 122 to 190 shots a day. I lie a little I skipped a couple of days where it rained all day but you get the gist of things 500 to 700 shots on charge. Eneloop baby.

    Been working great so far. Yongnuo makes some really great, affordable products at 1/4 the price of the Canon equivalents. The build quality is nowhere near that of the Canon products, but you can literally buy 3-4 of these for the price of 1 Canon, so I think it is worth it.

    First thing, this flash is small; which makes it light and easy to carry. The HSS function works very well and the light output is good (not as strong as the Canon 600EX for example, but enough for my needs). The controls are easy to use and the LCD screen is big enough to display the info needed. The only small complain I have is the AF Assist Beam, which is a little off-centered, making it not to cover the entire viewing area (this problem is more noticeable when at closer distances < 25mm). I think that just removing the cover and adjusting it would make it right, but I didn't tried it yet. But even bugging me a little to see it off-centered, the AF Assist still works very well and with great precision.

    this is an awesome flash! it has the HSS, it has the wireless trigger port! it makes a sound when its done charging! (so you so professional lol sure why not lol) the only thing id say is while it is HSS the higher u go its also not bright enough to go super high on HSS. my camera tops out at 4000 shutter speed (rebel t5i) and the pictures start to get pretty dark which is a big duh the shutter speed is way up there! but just the same this is not a studio super amazing flash that can go that high. so heads up to people that like the HSS look this one won't cut it if u go super high shutter speed. other wise for the normal pictures and portraits, stick it with umbrella or soft box this thing is great. also good recycle time i think. i only give it a 4/5 because i was thinking since it has HSS i could shoot way up there and get that type of look which i sorta do its just not bright enough just the same at those speeds way way up there.

    I was expecting something that worked; But, felt cheaply made. Flashguns can be pricey and you get what you pay for. But, that is no the case. The 500ex has a SOLID build. It feels like a Canon or Nikon built flash. The controls are good. the manual is a must for advanced features. The in camera control for the Canon cameras are very convenient. This is such a feature rich flash and an excellent build. How it lasts... only time will tell. But, I feel confident depending on this equipment. When it started out, Yongnuo built cheap crap. Now, it's an exciting company that's doing things correctly, listening to what the customers want, and offering high end features for extremely competitive prices.

    Awesome for Canon but... Does not work with Nikon, well it does and it doesn't... It works with the YN-622N transceivers and the YN-622N-TX but you can NOT change the power unless you do it physically from the back of the flash. Which is a big down side for all Nikon users. I haven't tried it on top of the camera with the YN-622N so not sure if that would work. So this flash works with Nikon but only if you manually adjust the power setting, and use a YN-662N. But all Canon users I recommend this whole-heartedly, it is sturdy, powerful and reliable! Go for it Canon users, but alas fellow Nikon users this is not for us. :')

    After much review of flash options for my Canon T3i, I somewhat cautiously opted to try the newly released and minimally reviewed Yongnuo YN500ex. Whew. It does everything for me that it is advertised to do. I have not used it as a slave, however, so I cannot comment on that function. All my on-camera utility is exactly what I had hoped to get. It feels well-made, the head movement is solid and hits the detents properly. The battery door fits well and closes securely. The size is also nice. The dimension compare to the Canon 430 exii that I was considering along with this flash. I'm pleased.
