Which Yongnuo flash works for T3i or 60D?

Will be cheap $60 flashes(YN 460) work on Camera's hotshoe. Not worried about WIRELESS and or off camera functionality. Just looking for more power than camera's pop up flash.

Thanks

Reading the info on speedlights.net it appears that the YN460 will work with any canon camera since it is a manual only flash.

If you need ettl then I'd suggest looking into a yn468. The mark II version just came out and is about $100. Full ETTL support for the 60D but not for the T31 (at least the original version, unknown if the Mark II will work with the t31)

But then again you list 3 flashes in your sig already so why not use one of those?

Actually this is for my sister. I know all the 3 flashes in my sig have the capability to work on camera and with ETTL. But they are looking for a cheap flash that can fire from the camera hot shoe(connected to camera, no wires, triggers). Just plain plug and play

Most of the YongNuo flashes are full manual with no E-TTL. There are however E-TTL capable models like the YN-467, YN-468 and the all new YN-565. These should work fine with the T3i or 60D. I regularly use a YN-560 full manual with my 60D on-camera.

Oh ok, you'd think I would have realized that neither of the camera you listed where in your sig.....that would have been a dead giveaway that you weren't asking for yourself. I blame it on it being late :)

I'd say she should go with the 468 since I'm sure she would want ETTL but that might not be a good choice with the t3i unless yongnuo updated the mark II to work with it. For the 60D I'd say it is a great choice though.

Get the cheapest one that has ETTL. For on camera work its almost a requirement. The non-ettl models are great for strobist work, but if someone is determined to use it on camera, they probably want/need the ETTL.

Yeah, ETTL sounds like it might be wants wanted for now. I have the 460ii and the 560. Working with manual flashes is intimidating at first, but you catch on pretty quickly and it actually decreases your learning curve because you do the thinking instead of the camera. None of my Yongnuo flashes or triggers have failed me yet (about 2yrs with the first flash) and I only use 2 triggers; the optical slave works very well so I don't need to buy more triggers.
