Hi,

I am looking to get a manual flash for off camera lighting on location. I saw the Lumopro LP160 and the Yongnuo YN560. Any comments on any of these flashes? I have a Canon 20D and a Canon 580EXII.

I personal own the YN560 and have used the LP160. I actually like the LP160 more, because it has 4 way sync and better built. and i personally think the LP160 is a little more powerful. then again, that would have just been me. i do love YN560 and use it just about all tht time as OCF w/ my radiopopper. have my assistant change the power level. its does the job.

Here is one man's opinion on the two: http://strobist.blogsp​ot.com …drive-yongnuo-yn-560.html (external link)

I'd say for the price, it's hard to beat the 560 - especially if you're just a hobbyist and don't want to invest too much $$$.

If money is less of a concern and you can afford to extend your budget, I'd opt for the LP160 - mainly b/c it has a miniphone port.
