Since I am a rank amateur, use a G12 ONLY, have a 430EXII, which has ETTL,is there any reason I should but the 565 over the 560? Also, would I not come out ahead buying the 468(?) which has Hi-Speed Sync? I think it is the 468.

I was/am looking to get the 430EX II, do you think its worth holding off for this?

I have a 7D so the wireless appeals to my, but I understand no high speed sync - no that I really know how or why that would be used!

Cheers Mike, I just spotted that the YN-565EX has been added to the new section of the EU site today - here (external link).

Perhaps we're actually getting close to a release.

Hi All
I am new here. After reading this forum three nights ago I emailed YongNuo sales and asked about the 565EX release date and where to purchase it. They replied with the following:

"Hello friend
Thank you for your email. Pls note that YN-565 will not be available until at end of June. And the price is not yet confirmed.
You can purchase it from ebay
:" (followed by the name of an ebay store which I have omitted to avoid advertising)

Hope this helps all on this forum.
Kind Regards
Jorocketoz

Remember that the YN-560 now sells for around 44€ (66$)

Where, on Europe, is possible buy this previous unit at that price?

Do you actually know how to use your 430EX II? Based on your posted photos and comments that you learn how to use what you have first.

Surely these should be compatible with Flex TT5's?

Well. that told me nothing. I have a 430EXII, a 220EX. and was thinking of using the 220 and 1 other with filters for a background color. I know the 220 can only be fired in manual unless it is on camera. Since the 430 has ETTL and the 468 has ETTL & Hi speed sync I thought I might come out ahead & spend less money on the 468. Instead of analyzing what YOU THINK I AM GOING TO DO, a simple yes no or no answer would be more constructive than a lecture, Thank You.

It's mid-June. Where is this bad boy? Oh great, now the end of June. :/ I really want to see the entry point this unit comes in with, considering a Sigma EF-610 DG Super GN61 with the exact same features (only dedicated not dual) swings in at $229-$259. And even though they're probably constructed on different floors of the same Shenzhen factory, the Yongnuo is "cheaper" and therefore must be cheaper. Capitalism sucks.

Gil, the 430EXII definitely does HSS; all recent Canon flashes do. And E-TTL will experience "complications" if you have manual slave(s) firing in the scene whose light falls on the area being metered. I think that's what donbga was alluding to, using sarcasm. Not always an effective communications method, especially online with strangers.

To answer your question, yes you want the 565 over the 560, and over the 468. Wireless E-TTL rocks. Controlling which flash groups fire, at what power, and what ratio - all from behind the eyecup - is addicting. I love manual controls in all things, but as an option. If it were me, I'd put a 565 on the G12 or via off-shoe cord as your master, run the 430EXII as an E-TTL wireless slave.

If you are wondering what I'm ranting about, please give this a read:
Canon Knowledgebase: Speedlite Tip Series, Part 3: Wireless Flash Primer (external link)

... and you'll understand why we're sexually aroused (no? just me?) by the idea of a ~$150 master-capable wireless E-TTL unit, that is both Canon & Nikon wireless protocol capable-- simultaneously? I'll take 3, for about the price of one 580EXII.

I'm just as aroused for the Pixel Kings, too. Imagine a E-TTL off-shoe cable, only RF. 1/8000th, 2nd curtain sync, 100M range. Oh my. And at 1/5th the price of any competitor sounding like Popler. And they're late to market, too. Heh.
