Yongnuo YN685 reviews

YN685 Wireless TTL Speedlite and Wireless Flash Controller Kit for Nikon Cameras is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 59.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good kit B&H have a winner with this kit. The components worked right out of the box. I wanted this for high speed sync outdoors, and it works great. B&H were very good getting this to me overseas very quickly based on my shipping options. I ordered on a Wednesday, and by Saturday it had registered at my countries customs department ready for clearance. The units are built very well, but their instructions manuals leave a lot to be desired. But youtube has some nice overviews to get one started. And again, for a photographer, these things tend to be intuitive just the right amount, so it's easy to be up and running in under an hour.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from yes i would purchase this item again So far, this product is working great. It is my first speedlite and flash controller. The only thing I can say bad about the YN685 Speedlite and Wireless Flash Controller is bad instruction books. While trying to read through them, it appeared to me as though the writer recently began speaking English or was using a translation app. I would like to see a better instruction book with more information on how to perform different task for each item. But with a little, should I say playing with it, I have able to learn how to change settings, etc. Appears to be a solid product. Only four stars due to instruction books.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Follow Up to Feb 28, 2017 Review So, I've updated the YN-622N-TX trigger firmware from 1.05 to 1.08. The process was simple and painless. However, the issue with flash mis-fires, over/under-exposures in TTL mode continues. So, I re-iterate that this system is well priced for HOBBYIST looking to develop off-camera lighting skill. The YN-685 Speedlight (on camera) continues to deliver consistent TTL performance and has replaced my Nikon SB-600. I've used both Lithium and Ni-MH batteries. Performance has been the same. Now I'm looking for a compatible/reasonably-priced power pack. Test Photos - https://ddstevenson.smugmug.com/Equipment-Test/YoungNuo-YN685-YN622NTX-Combo/

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not work for me I bought this bundle for my Nikon system based on a recommendation from a friend who'd been using it, despite my reservations about the stories you hear about the lack of Yongnuo reliability. The reviews everywhere looked good, so I went with it. It worked well for about 20 shots, and then the system stopped working: specifically, the trigger would no longer talk to the flash. No physical configuration was changed: it just stopped working mid-shoot. The flash worked on the camera body (D810), and the camera seemed to recognize the trigger when it was mounted, but the two pieces wouldn't talk to each other. I tried everything: using new batteries, letting both things sit overnight with the batteries out, doing factory resets on both devices (including the custom function clear on the flash), updating the firmware on the trigger to the latest (1.08), and moving to a different location just in case it was some kind of radio interference. I wish it had worked, because the price is good, and the system seems otherwise to be well-designed. My friend's system still works, and he's happy with it. So if you get one, test it before any important shoot, and be prepared to return it. I'm going with the Cactus system instead: I hope it works better!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good For Hobbiest Learning Off Camera Flash Its been just a few weeks since it received the flash and controller. For the price, I'm not upset with the performance thus far. But, here are the details of my experience: Instruction Manuals - basically the Chinese manual was given a quick pass thru Google Translate, copied, then pasted. YN685 On-Camera (i-TTL) - Works well. Consistent exposures. Should serve your event photography well. via YN622N-TX - So far, the TTL is not reliable: under-exposures, over-exposures, mis-fires. However, using manual exposure mode, the exposures ARE consistent. I'll update my review after further use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be a steep learning curve I have only had these units for a little over a week, so what I have to say about the flash itself and the transmitter should be taken with some degree of caution. The flash feels substantial and, frankly, it feels as solid as my Nikon flash. The transmitter worked quite well, as did the flash. All that being said, the instruction manual for each of the units is horrendous. It is terribly poorly written and incomprehensible at times. Only by trial and error, was I able to figure out at least the rudiments of how this flash and transmitter function. If you don't mind a certain amount of frustration and tinkering, then I suspect these units will function quite well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dual Flash Field System Amazing price. Amazing product. Shooting with a Nikon SB600, priced three times as much with less power. I will be purchasing two more of these. Shooting out in the field with a need for capable, replaceable, and economical equipment. Required Yongnuo receivers to sync the SB600 and the YN685 for a two flash system. Shooting with a Nikon D80.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value in a speedlite and controller I bought my first Yongnuo about a year ago concerned about its quality but it was so much cheaper than the Nikon version I thought I'd take a chance. A year of using it has convinced me it's every bit as good as the Nikon for a fraction of the price. The YN685 kit along with two Yongnuo receivers I already had lets me wirelessly control both the new strobe and the old one along with a custom light that uses multiple heads in a softbox. Bottom line, powerful tools for very little money, I'm sold.
