11Sep Yongnuo YN568EX II quick flash test and updates

I’ve been comparing the Yongnuo YN568EX II to the Canon 580EX II in a few somewhat unscientific tests. In this case (above) I used the Yongnuo YN-622C Wireless flash trigger to fire both the 580EX II and YN568EX II. Both flash heads have the same guide number (58) and are set up identically. After taking a few […]

23Aug Yongnuo YN 565EX – First Impressions

I don’t do a lot of flash photography so i’ve been considering selling off a few of my Canon 580EX II speedlites and replacing them with some cheaper off brand models before the new Canon 600EX-RT drives used 580EX II prices into the ground. But before I sell off two out of the three 580EX II’s in […]
