To complement the information in text and photos on the site I’ve started shooting some videos with short reviews about my speedlights. Yongnuo YN-468 manual mode review is the first one in the series, and embedded here:
The video shows:
- contents in the box
- an uninteded drop test
- inserting batteries
- manual mode operation
- partial output setting
- Cactus V4 triggering
- RF-602 triggering (partial)
More YN468 information
Don’t miss out on the 2 review articles about the E-TTL enabled 468 model from Yongnuo, or have a look at the data sheet:
The Canon 580EX mk II is Canon’s flag ship flash unit, and as such it offers next to all the bells and whistles also a powerful manual mode. This is exactly the focus of the following review: how does it behave in a strobist setup? How easy is it to set the manual mode? Does it work with Cactus or Yongnuo radio triggers? The answers can be found here.
- manual mode
- has manual mode: yes
- minimum manual power: 1/128
For photographers on a budget, Yongnuo’s 460 model
is was a great choice – until the introduction of the Yongnuo YN-460 Mark II.
The YN-460 offers everything that you need for manual operation in a package of acceptable (some say ‘very good’) quality at a bargain price, and it’s available new from eBay for around 40 USD.
In addition, it’s rather small size, almost exactly the same as the SB-600 from Nikon.
