Summary: Needed second flash and not willing again to spend hundreds of dollars on single Canon flash and after reading lots of reviews I've desided to buy YongNuo speedlite YN 560. And so far I'm very happy about my purchase. Have been use it for last couple of months and so far no problems at all. So I bought second one. Don't want to jinks it but they perform as well as my Canon 430EXII. I'm using them as off camera flashes with Cactus V5 triggers. So far so good.
Summary: Purchased this item to use on my Canon EOS 60D DSLR camera. This was to replace another older flash unit. I have used the flash inside, outside in daylight and at night. It gives quality photos, and the time delay shots at night are excellent. Would recommend to all as a flash unit that is equal to the main manufacturers flash units; which are more costly. Does the same job. Pro's-Easy to operate - short start up time - easy to set up and use. Con's-None to date.
Summary: I highly recommend this flash for anyone starting out in strobist photography. Compared to the branded flashes that are five times more expensive, this one is a steal. The build quality(though not weather sealed) and power output are more than sufficient for my needs and almost comparable to the branded ones. You have to remember that this flash is manual only. Which is perfect because I really don't need those fancy ITTL or ETTL that are offered by the branded ones.
Summary: I still waiting for one devolution of the speedlite or my money back for the ineptitud of not doing he right thing of the people of that store....is very hard telling somthing like this ,but i must do it because has happen a long time if the speedlite is in the warehouse here in sydney ,where i made one devolution or at other place Only excuse and nothin else....
Powerful manual flash, solid mechanics and great features. Recommended.

Summary: Surprisingly high quality manual flash for the price. Build quality is more solid than my Nikon SB600, which costs 3 times as much. More power and recycles faster, too. Excellent for use as an off-camera flash.
Summary: I think this is a great additional flash to use, however I would recommend you at least own one Canon 580exII or Nikon flash unit depending on your choice of camera brand. Having said that this flash unit can be used as a slave unit & works very well It also is full manual with a very basic interface (no lcd screen) In my opinion if your going to be using more than one flash, manual is what you want, giving you full controll over your lighting.
Summary: Good design. The high guide number. Cooldown 1 second at maximum pulse (used batteries GP 2700mA / h). Enter the focal length and strength of the pulse manually, but it does not bother me, because I'm used to this. It really helps the sound of charge when using on the tripod. Reasonable price.
