    Yongnuo YN968EX-RT reviews

    Speedlite YN968EX-RT for Canon Cameras is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all-around performance I was looking for a slave for my Canon Speedlite 600EX and was very impressed with my Yongnuo work horse manual flash that I used daily for my photography business, the Yongnuo YN560-IV Speedlite I have been using and testing the flash for the past couple of weeks and have been impressed enough to buy a 2nd. The Yongnuo YN968EX-RT is not a physical clone of the Canon 600EX like the Yongnuo YN600EX-RT, but rather has its own unique shape and form. The YN968EX-RT does follow the interface of the Canon flashes to the point where, if you have worked with a Canon 600EX, you will easily be able to operate and utilize all of its features without looking at the owners manual. I was actually amazed at how similar the 2 flashes are in their operation and interface, and how seamlessly they work together as a radio master and slave. Here are some of the differences that I notice from the Canon flash: No optical master setting. The flash only operates as a master through the cannon's radio transmission system. I see no advantage of using the optical system over the radio transmission so I doubt that anyone would ever have need for it. In the optical slave mode this flash will work with either Canon or Nikon master systems. No legacy on flash light meter system. Although this flash is fully compatible with my digital SLRs, (6D &80D) I have found lots of issues trying to use it with any of the fixed lens cameras like my Canon G 12, I would check the compatibility tables before ordering if you own a non-D-SLR. There is no need to press any buttons to rotate the head either vertically or horizontally. I personally prefer not having to have to press a button to rotate the head. My experience with the Yongnuo flashes is that these heads do not become looser over time. Although high speed sync works with with my D-SLRs, power output falls off quicker at high shutter speed when compared to my Canon flash. On camera the flash tends to have identical power capabilities, and gives near identical exposures. Eric works equally well as my Canon in TTL master and slave modes. The flash also comes with a continuous light for video work. I would say that this is more of a novelty than a workhorse component. The light will work for a few minutes only at full power and will temporarily drain the battery. The batteries will quickly come back to life, but at full power you will only be able to use this light for a few minutes. I must say that you will probably not need to use full power in a indoor situation and Yongnuo provides an Amber filter to help create videos under tungsten light and you will get far more time for your video recording. This light is at its best mixing with ambient light since the latest source is very small and bright.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I recomend it product Great product for the price, It work nicely with my Canon EOS 5D mark III, Sure I recommend 100%, it is a powerful substitute of Canon very Expensive Flashgun

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from ETTL doesn't seem to work with bounce on Canon 7D This flash does not work consistently in ETTL mode if you use bounce flash, which is how I typically shoot. I tried the flash on my Canon 7D and tested bounce flash at several distances. Close-up objects were over-exposed by about 1 stop. Far-away objects were under-exposed by 2 to 3 stops. I know that the flash has enough power to reach the far-away objects because when I put the flash into manual mode, 1/2 power illuminated the objects very nicely. Everything else about the flash -- e.g. the build quality -- seems just fine. I can't compare this

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product. It works great with my Canon DSLR. The built quality is good too. The flash also comes with a continuous light for video recording. It is an all-around performance product. Great product for the price also.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bargen light with big bang I am a professional photographer full time, just photographed a mardi gras ball with lots flash and 3 social events associated. � This flash was very impressive and had the power to bounce and light a room. �Not built like the cannon but �can replace it for a fraction of the cost. �Good buy so far.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't update firmware I can't get the flash to connect to my computer to update the firmware. They are already on version 1.11 so there have been a lot of bug fixes. I successfully updated my YNe3-RX so I know how to do the update.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Used them for a single shoot so far and they worked great. They feel great and the build quality is good too. No complaints so far. Remember that these are upgradeable so get the latest firmware.
