Excerpt: An outstanding all-manual flash. Well built, reliable, charges quick enough. The optical slave mode is sensitive and consistent. It has a great user interface. Large display and well laid-out buttons are a pleasure to use. I wish it had a lever-type clamp for mounting rather than the screw-ring.
Excerpt: Unboxing this flash unit was a real treat. I had a prior experience with Metz 48 AF-1 and therefore I was even more surprised that this Chinese flashgun left a much better impression than its German counterpart.
Excerpt: After a long time using a Sigma EF500 I bought a YN560II to have a second flash. When it arrived I was immediately blown away by the build quality, especially compared with the Sigma - no creaky plastic, it just feels solid.
Pros: Cheap, easy to use, very adjustable, good build quality
Cons: Doesn't work in onboard flash NOT contributing to exposure
