Mostly current models. 6xx—The latest/upcoming (third) generation of Yongnuo’s flashes. xx0—Models numbers that end in zero (e.g., YN-460, YN-560) are manual-only single-pin flashes. Finally the new Yongnuo YN-565 EX has arrived in the office! Please note that the ceilings and walls are not perfectly white in the shots below, so there is a slight color cast. The 7 steps for output control in M, S1 and S2 are as follows: 1/1 – 1/2 – 1/4 – 1/8 – 1/16 – 1/32 – 1/64. In the photo, you can see the 1/16 power setting with 3 of the 7 LEDs lighting up. Для фотографирования семьи и детей вполне хватит маленькой и лёгкой Nikon SB-400, она для этих задач ничем не уступает YN465. Для более серьёзных занятий рекомендую остановиться на вспышках Nikon и ничего не выдумывать.
Yes. Yongnuo has a feature called “Mix Mode”. Hold down the [CH SET] button on the transmitter (the transceiver on your camera) for 3 seconds and Mix Mode will be enabled. If you have a flash on-camera, it will be fixed to E-TTL mode. For this minimum recycle time scenario the guide number is then determined. Only the YN-560 has an improved slave sensor, which I was able to use up to EV14 (a sunny day in the Bay Area). So better always use the YN460-II with radio triggers. The table shows the results for 3 different types of radio triggers.
This was (or is) a real problem with the SB-900 from Nikon. This flash is a «little brother» to the YN-568EX—lower powered, and smaller, but TTL, HSS, and CLS/wireless eTTL slave capability via both the sensor and the foot. YN-565EX. Can be used as a CLS or Canon wireless eTTL slave, or dumb optical slave. This is not what the Yongnuo YN-460 II was made for. The panel has a decent size, it’s big enough to display large and easy to read font.
