Hi Damian, I was wondering what your thoughts are on these two flashes (560 III & 468 II)? I currently have the Neewer TT560 and want to get another flash. I’m currently stumped between the two, should I compromise some flash power for E-TTL or go with the 560 III and use it as a slave in the future?
Which one would be the best “bang for your buck” if you had to choose between the two?
Thanks, I look forward to your expertise.
Hiya. How much less output does the 468 do over the 560ii? I’m not sure. And part of this is what you feel your needs are. I have 2 YN560iis with Cactus V triggers. But now I kinda want ETTL to get the Pixel King Pro, and set flash output from the tranceiver rather than having to go into Cannon’s menu. So I was looking at the 468 or the 568ex (because it has HSS too. Yeah i could always walk over and turn the flash power down, but setting flash output from camera (on screen or from tranceiver) is faster.
The 560iiis can be fired with YN 603s, which is nice. Or maybe optical firing is fine for you. I decided it was limiting. Can the Neewer and Yongnuo communicate via optical?
Thanks for your insight. I’m not sure if they’re able to communicate via optical, I shall find out haha. I just placed an order for the YN-468 II–since I haven’t had an ETTL flash yet, so this should be fun.
Thanks again, I look forward to your reviews/videos!
Which camera do you have? Many can use internal flash to fire flashes optically. It’s that big red area on the lower flash. I would say decide early how you want to fire all your flashes, that’ll help you decide on what kind of flashes. I started optically, then decided on radio triggers, and now I want ETTL. The amusing thing is you need ETTL to control the output of flashes from the camera but many photogs then set the flashes on manual. Meaning the flashes are using ETTL to control, but the photog doesn’t let the camera decide on power output.
I’m going to add our conversation to my forums if that’s okay so others can benefit.
