New Toys

June 09, 2011  •  Leave a Comment
This month my bank account was looking pretty healthy (surprisingly) so I decided to buy a new toy

The Yongnuo Yn-560 is a great manual flash for the money, its almost identical to the Canon Speedlite 580 EX II but at a fraction of the cost, I am very tempted to buy another.

But wait now I have that flash as well as my 580 EX II and Nikon SB 28 I now dont have enough receivers! (Reaches for debit card again!)

So I am also now the owner of a set of 4 Yongnuo RF-603 Transceivers

Being transceivers rather than seperate triggers and receivers is very handy because if something goes wrong with one of them I just use another as the trigger. They are autosensing so as soon as I put one on a flash and the other on a camera, a quick press of the test button lets them talk to each other and assign the camera one as the trigger and the other(s) as receivers. Range is over 225 meters outdoors which is as far as you could want in most situations.

I will be expecting a Christmas card from Yongnuo this year!

Now I am off to play with my new toys.
