    Yongnuo YN660 reviews

    Speedlite YN660 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great while it lasted! I've owned three 560iii over the past year and a half. One of which is still going strong. The other two are stuck at about 1/8 power. I purchased the 660 hoping to get some better results. Had the 660 for just over about 6 months. This thing is bright and recycle time is just as quick. A few days ago I started to notice it was only firing every other shutter click. Now it fires about 25% of the time. Probably a capacitor is faulty or dying? (This is all with fresh batteries. The transmitter functions properly and I hear it beep as though the speedlight should have fired, but no flash. Ready light is always lit red. With this being said, would I buy again? Yup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Flash! Bought this flash for off camera location lighting. I find it to be well made, easy to use, and very reliable. I triggered mine with Pocket Wizards; one in a 24 inch portable soft box and one as a rim light. They worked flawlessly! I bought 3 of them and plan on adding more. I have not purchased the controller. I have several Pocket Wizards and like to use them because I can trigger strobes, flashes, and other brands of speed lights together. I did not purchase the ETTL version because I only use manual and this fit my needs very well. I am astonished at such a low price point for the quality of this item and I recommend these to anyone needing, or wanting to get into, the use of multiple off-camera speedights.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great unit and a great price. A great unit and a great price. My one criticism concerns the instruction manual, which is obviously written by a non-English person or is translated from Chinese by an automated app. I was forced to learn by experiment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buying a third one soon I've had two of these for about three months now and I am quite pleased. Plenty of output, reasonably even light spread, fast recycle times, and reasonable battery life. The only reason I'm giving it a 4-star rating instead of 5 is that I am often using the optical trigger mode and they don't always have the reach I would expect, even with the sensor pointed directly at the on-camera flash. I'll add a third one as soon as the budget allows.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Manual Flash I purchased this flash because my expensive Canon flash died, and I didn't want to spend a huge amount on another name-brand flash.� I have used this flash once, outdoors in bright sun, and it worked perfectly.� It is well made, recharges quickly, and is easier to operate than the Canon flash was.� However, this is a manual flash, which means you have to set the power yourself.� It is not TTL, so it may not be suitable for everyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the best flash value on the market today. I recently purchased 6 (six) Yongnuo YN660 flashes and Yongnuo 560TX controller with built-in radio control to replace my Nikon SB600's. While the SB600's were effective within their limits their biggest drawback was their need to see the controller flash and their effective range outdoors. With the new YN660's there are no such limitations. they can be virtually placed and used within their 300' range.. No matter if a wall or other obstruction is between the flash and the controller. The end result is that theYN 660's are ideal for architectural photography or any situation where the chance of an optical signal may be lost or diverted. Build quality is quite robust and flash head movement is positive and quite secure - very similar to Nikon. The flash is quite large with a guide number rivaling the Nikon SB910. The hot shoe mount features a new style slide locking lever which is an improvement of their prior screw tensioner. Operation of group and channel selection and mode selection is easy to follow. However, initial set-up between the YN660 speedlight and the YN560 TX transmitter is fairly straight forward but not well explained in the included instruction manual. As it turns out - after both units are turned on and the receive mode is selected on the YN660, a simple two-button push of the ZOOM/CH and HZ/FN buttons on the YN560 TX will display A C T and then a push of the OK button on the YN660 flash will synchronize the flash and transmitter. This only needs to be done once for each YN660 flash unit - provided you have more than one. Once synced, the flashes can be turned off if necessary and when re-energized the flash and controller will still be in sync. With the 560 TX, flash power adjustments are simple and fast and make using the YN660's a true pleasure to use. For the cost of less than 1 Nikon SB500 radio controlled speedlight I was able to purchase 6 of the YN660's AND the YN560TX controller. That in my opinion is a SUPER deal!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top. Replaces my Vivitar 285 that was still running strong after 25+ years, but got lost in a typhoon. The YN seems to be reasonably well built and has a sufficient amount of power, while being nice to the batteries (some Watson rechargeables). It is not a dedicated flash, but with a bit of practice (and understanding of exposure) it works just as well. The rear panel is easy to read. There are some amazing details - built in wireless trigger, bracket mount, that wide angle fold-out and fold-out reflector (I doubts its use though). The added pouch is very well made. The flash is very well worth the price, and I doubt you'll find anything better for your money. I have been moving away from flash for quite a while, not doing any events any more, but I think buy some more of these for studio work.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light Works well, affordable. Does what I need it to. Build quality is higher than I expected, though the battery door doesn't feel sturdy.
