| p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Yongnuo YN-560 II (Best $70 I Ever Spent!) |
In an attempt to lighten up my wedding day load I decided to buy 3 Yongnuo YN-560 IIís to replace my Einsteinís. I normally shoot receptions at ISO 800-1600 to capture a lot of ambient so the Einsteinís were a little overkill since I have to use them near the lowest setting. Also I started getting tired of always having to find electrical outlets, laying extension cords, and/or bringing my vagabond mini. The YN-560iiís just came in the mail today and I must say that I am already impressed!! They are strobistís dream!!! They have a built in PC sync port, a port for an external battery, adjust from full power all the way down to 1/128 power in 1/3 stops, and the build quality is very very good (Iím quite sure this thing can take its fare share of falls and keep on ticking). The recycle time is pretty good tooÖ. about 2-3 secs @ full power and almost instantaneous at Ĺ power and below. The only improvements that I can possibly think of would be built in wireless receivers and the ability to adjust the power remotely. I canít wait to use these for my upcoming weddings this weekend. If you are comfortable with using manual flash and are need of some quality new flashes I think you will be hard pressed to match the price/quality of these babies!!
