Hi, I was searching on ebay, and found the yn-560 II (not the 565ex with ttl). Is there anyone on the forum using it? I will work only on manual, and I want 1 or 2 to learn a bit about light, I have a canon 430ex and love it, but need more...
I've never heard of it. It might be sold in the US under a different brand name.
yongnuo, way cheaper than canon...
You can check it on amazon as well...they would definitely be having better deals and you yourself can compare the price!
I'm watching some videos on youtube about the YN flashes... they have some TTL and those cheap but powerful flashes. I'm thinking to build a really small version of a studio, will be very happy to learn photographing small objects or if is possible, my official model (my 7 years niece) when she wants to play the model of course..
I shoot. I write.
Youtube is not always a reliable source of information. In other words, don't believe everything you see on the internet. Don't trust reviews by people whose reliability you don't know. According to the New York Times one third of user reviews are phoney. When you research something on the net approach it as if you were writing a term paper.
I don't believe that brand of flash is sold in the US so I'm not familar with it. A good brand of reasonably priced flashes that I am familiar with is Sunpak. I don't know if they are sold in Europe.
Sunpak, Sigma or even Vivatar, they should be available all over. Just make sure that you get one that works on your camera.
The question is not what you look at, but what you see.
