Hey guys, so Ive been shooting with RF 603 and Yn-560 lll for over a year now. What I like about them is that they're reliable and I dont need to attach another trigger to the flash, just one in the camera hot shoe. Im not very updated in new releases but I would like to know if Youngnuo has released a trigger that can control\adjust the flash power from my cameras hot shoe trigger without having to go to the speedlight, similar to the pw ac3.

I just picked up a YN560-TX and used it for the first time at a real estate shoot. I worked every time and never failed. The only flaw I can see, and it has nothing to do with the actual system itself, is remembering which flash is which on the TX. It's fine with 2 but when you get up to 4 or 5 it's a bit hard to remember which is which.

Can you label them with painters tape? Or color code?

OK, I know they aren't the same triggers as you're using - but the principal is the same. Both my on-camera transmitter units also have labels (very cleverly identified as C-TX1 and C-TX2), it's missing from this shot because I weas still taking them to bits at that stage. I have similar labels on all my flashguns and battery packs too. Quite apart from helping when setting up, it would also help to identify if any one unit is playing up - infuriating to discover that 'that black one I used as XYZ is unreliable' then get back home and not be able to identify which unit was the culprit. :cry:

An alternative method would be to always set up with things in the same orientation:

  • Everything to camera left is Group A
  • Everything to camera right is Group B
  • Everything behind the subject (eg hairlights, kickers) is Group C

Thanks!! Exactly what I was looking for. Most of the time I use 2 speedlights so it shouldn't be a problem.
