Great Manual Flash
“The build quality is pretty decent. I expected to get a cheap piece of plastic for the $60 price tag but it is pretty decent. The flash works like any other. The model is based exactly off my other 580’s. Only a few slight changes. It even has the diffuser/white bounce card at the top plus its the same shape as the 580 so my external diffusers fit it perfectly.” – By Casino21

Worth Every Penny
“For the money you cannot beat these. Literally the best thing about these is how much they have ripped off from an actual Canon 580ex2…number one being the ability to use the AA battery backs for faster recycle times. They make knock off 8AA battery packs as well, go figure.” – By HouseHusband

Very capable manual flash for studio work
“The recycle time is *fast*. I haven’t timed it out, but even at full power, recharge time is less than a second.. So yeah, very happy with this unit. Thinking of picking up another pair just to have around when I need to zap shadows. Would definitely recommend this flash head for anyone looking to light up an umbrella or softbox without spending big bucks on an expensive TTL unit.” – By bisticles

BOOM! Goes the flash
“First it is very powerful and in full power mode you can hear it go off – BOOM! (not really but it is impressive) Zoom works very well. Shape of the light on the subject is likewise as good. The construction is solid, not as good a Canon but close.” – By Michael Fowler

solid build with great value
“guide number seems to be as stated, via a quick test of 30feet away from dark corner of the room, 1/250 sec with 420mm(effective) lens at f6.3, flash set to full power, flash set for 105mm max zoom, image looked well exposed. used the flash’s built-in pull out ‘soften’ lens on a remote cord held 90deg to macro close up subject and image had a very nice soft light/shadow/.” – By tom

Great manual flash
“For the money, I am amazed at how powerful, useful, and effective the 560’s are. Since I bought mine, Yongnuo has added a metal shoe foot which is an even better reason to get these for strobist work.” – By P. Hartung

I love this thing
“This flash is great for manual flash work and off camera lighting. I love how it works for those things. I am even considering buying another one or two down the road.” – By Albert Jurina III

Great value in a manual flash
“If you need a slave flash with some power and manual controls I really think this is the best thing out there. Almost everything else in this price range is a single power or auto-flash without the ability to make manual output adjustments. You can get this output with no slave, the slave with no manual,or you can spend twice as much.” – By Kian O’Connell

Works great so far
“I have never used another flash so I can’t compare it to other brands but for my first one it’s working out just fine nice and bright. I read that rechargeable batteries are pretty much a must with flashes so instead of buying the more expensive Sanyo Eneloops I went with the Sony CycleEnergy brand (same specs and cheaper price as well) and they work great with this flash. I only have to wait for about 2 seconds or less for the recharge time of the flash which is great considering out cat is only a couple months old and a bolt of lightning! Great buy as long as it lasts which is a long time I hope!” – By Chris
