Helllo PN Family,

 

I have a big event this Saturday and indeed of another flash, anyone have any Yahs or Nahs on the YONGNUO YN560 IV YN-560IV Wireless Flash Speedlite Master + Slave Flash + Built-in Trigger System.

 

Want to use it with my D600 and D200 (backup camera).

 

Thanks.

No personal experience with them Jazz but they are popular due to their price. I am not sure but they are supposed to be compatable with the Nikon CLS system see fi you can try one out in the store.

Tried one out at the store and it's pretty cool but it looks like it only changes manual power in one-stop increments. The Phottix Mitros can change it in 1/3 stop increments.

I got the Phottix Odin remote trigger system and am using it with an SB-800, SB-26 and SB-16. Plan to add an SB-600 and maybe another SB-800, BUT... I can also add the Mitros flash + wireless master & slave to the system. It's all in one unit.

==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

Jazz, don't experiment just before a big event! The Yongnuo flash is very good, but you have to get used to it and learn the nuances. It is not 100% like the Nikon. I find it shoots at a cooler temperature. I use it primarily for fill, the 910 nikon is much better. No comparison, I would hope so for the money.

I use them Jazz, I needed some extra lights for a project and bought some of them and a controller just to try. Inexpensive. They work great. The stops can be set in .3 increments. I love manual flash with the camera tethered to the Mac Book Pro. The included instructions are not very good, but I found some on a website that are clear and concise. I'll try to find them for you.

I just noticed that I forgot to post the link for the "easier to read and understand" instructions for the lights and controller. Here it is and I apologize for taking so long to post this.

Tony, I use them with a D800E and a D3X, perhaps I can answer your questions?
