Yongnuo YN468 vs 430EX II Canon Speedlite

Yongnuo 468 versus Canon’s 430EX II – how does the $100 flash (e.g. from eBay) hold up against the mid-range speedlite from Canon costing about > 2.5x?

YN468 versus Canon 430EX II

Finally, a Canon speedlite 430EX II has joined the collection (I plan on doing much more Canon testing in 2011!), and a direct comparison of YN468 vs 430 EX II is the topic of this article. Both speedlites were tested with a Canon Rebel T1i (Canon 500D in Europe).

Yongnuo YN-468 Flash Review

YN-468 speedlite for review on cam Nov 3, 2011: The new YN-468-II has been released and is available now! Get it from here: YN-468 II, or read more about the new features on the YN-468-II page.

Until November 2011, the Yongnuo YN-468 was the latest addition to the Yongnuo 46-x flash lineup and their 6th model overall.

It is a “strobist” flash (visit strobist.com) with a manual mode down to 1/128 (a first for Yongnuo) and the 2 optical slave modes from its precursors, but it is above all an E-TTL(II) flash that works together with Canon DSLR camera bodies – e.g. the Rebel series – for automatic flash exposure, zoom reflector adjustment and other advanced features.
