Yongnuo YN-560 III Reviews

Lightingrumours reviews the Yongnuo YN-560 III and writes;
“the Yongnuo YN560-III is an excellent flash for off-camera lighting. From the moment you pick it up you’ll see that a lot of thought has been put into its design. It looks and feels professional. The built-in radio trigger makes it that much less fiddly to mount on a light stand and could even eliminate separate radio receivers from your gear bag entirely if you invested in an all-YN560-III set-up.”
