Yongnuo YN685 Reviews

Good flash for a fair price

By Rick
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-02-20

This is a great flash for the money. I have purchased two of them. It has a high guide number & plenty of power, although the color is closer to tungsten than daylight. I've been occasionally using them for real estate interiors and have found that using the lower manual settings will provide acceptable light without affecting the color too much. Overall, it is certainly worth the price.

Major BANG for your BUCKS!

I needed another flash to compliment my Nikon SB-700 Speedlight, which I use with a Yongnuo YN-622N-TX i-TTL Wireless Flash Controller and Transceiver, on my Nikon D-850. I was able to set everything up easily, in spite of the fact that the factory instructions are difficult to understand. (Perhaps an American should edit and rewrite them for this market.) Neverless, I got it all working in conjunction with my Nikon speedlight, and the cost was a fraction of what it would have been had I gone with another Nikon product. This flash is way more powerful than my SB-700 and will probably become my primary flash.

It works pretty well

I bought this Yongnuo YN685 speedlite because I can not afford to spend the money on Nikon. I do own a Nikon SB900 and love it. It's just expensive. The Yongnuo does not feel as good quality as my Nikon and the Yongnuo feels bulky in my hand but for the price it works fine. So far I have just used it in my home studio wirelessly for a few commercial type shots and 1 portrait. It communicates wirelessly with the Yongnuo YN622 triggers I already had and I can adjust the power from the top of my camera which I love. I watched a few youtube videos and played around with the settings until I got what I wanted to achieve, then took a photo of the settings so I do not forget how I had it set up. I like it, but of course need a lot more time with it to see if I love it and how it really compares with my Nikon, because really thats what we all want to know in the long run.

Good alternative to Name brand

Have 5 of these now. Good alternatives to the name brands. Comparable features, work well.

A decent external flash & controller at a reasonable price.

This is the first external flash system I have bought for my Nikon D7200, and it does work - once you figure out the cryptic instructions. If you like saving money and don't mind reading ambiguous product manuals written in horrible English, then this Yongnuo speedlite and controller combination is just right for you! I probably will buy a second Yongnuo wireless speedlite when the need arises, just 'cause the price is right.

2nd one

Dumb me lost my first one, so I needed to purchase another one. I have used this model on my Canon 70D and also my Canon 5D mkIV. LOVE IT. Fast cycle times, lots of features and the ability to use satellites. I recommend

question

I have a Nikon D5200, a Yongnuo 685 and a Nikon sb-28 speedlite. I would like to be able to fire the 2 flash units that I have and a 3rd, not as yet obtained flash. What controller / transceiver / flash do I need to make this happen? Cost is a concern. mtb
Asked by: Michael
If you already own the Yongnuo YN685 Wireless TTL Speedlite and Wireless Flash Controller Kit for Nikon Cameras, the Youngnuo YN-622N-TX i-TTL Wireless Flash Controller for Nikon (B&H # YOYN622NTX) included in the kit would be able to wirelessly trigger the Yongnuo YN685 Wireless TTL Speedlite for Nikon Cameras. You may purchase the Yongnuo i-TTL Transceiver YN622N II for Nikon Cameras (2-Pack), B&H # YOYN622NII, which you may connect to the bottom of your Nikon SB-28 Speedlight Flash and your third speedlight flash for your wireless radio triggering usage needs.

question

The overview states i-TTL flash system when mounted to cameras for simple flash exposure control . Does this mean that I-TTL and other advanced features are NOT available for off-camera flash triggered by the transceiver?
Asked by: Chu J.
The transmitter works with all of the features the flash has. It will work in I-TTL and High speed sync.

question

I purchased 2 Yunguno YN685 Speedlights and a YN622-Ntx Transmitter I have the D500 and I was testing my new flashes and trigger. I am able to shoot in Manual at 1/250th a second or below and the D500 will fire both flashes with no issue. Once I pass 1/250th of a second, so 1/320th and beyond (In to HSS or FP area) my camera freezes and the flashes do not fire. I hear the mirror or shutter lock up. I have to remove the battery and turn the camera off , once I turn the camera back on I have an ERR message on the screen and I press the shutter button the shutter resets and I can access the camera menu and info screen again. I am not sure what is causing the problem and why I cant use the HSS with shutters past 1/250 a second without freezing the camera. Any ideas on what causes this error?

Would I be able to use this flash/transceiver combination with HSS speeds of 1/1000 or faster? Does it support the Nikon flash/auto ISO feature? I use HSS and sometimes flash auto ISO with a better beamer for wildlife photography.
Asked by: Edward
You can shoot it as fast as your camera is capable of up to 1/8000th. It might be able to do Auto ISO, but you will probably get better results just picking a static ISO and setting it.
