Yongnuo YN560 IV


Yongnuo YN560 IV is the successor of the very popular YN-560 III and the best Yongnuo manual speedlite in the YN560 series. Compared to YN-560 III, YN560 IV can now act as a master unit to other YN560 III/IV flashes and control up to 3 groups of flashes in Radio Master Mode. It maintains compatible with current range of manual triggers YN560-TX, RF-605, RF-603 II, RF-603 and RF-602.


Yongnuo YN560 IV Manual Flash Speedlite

Yongnuo YN560 IV is the latest model in the very popular line of Yongnuo’s YN560 manual flashes. With YN560 IV, Yongnuo continuous the tradition of making powerful and very versatile remote manual flash speedlites. The flash can now fully substitute the use of YN560-TX controller, although many still prefer the dedicated controller for its convenience and speed of use.

There is no TTL support in the YN560 IV, which has the advantage of making it truly universal, supporting any camera system with a hot-shoe or sync port interface, or even those without, using the built-in optical slave. It’s important to note, however, that these Yongnuo YN-560 series of flashes are manual control only, meaning they don’t offer TTL metering. This means you have to adjust the flash power manually and the flash won’t be able to determine the power of the flash by itself.

Yongnuo YN560 IV features full tilt functionality, flipping up and down 90 degrees (pointing at the subject to pointing upwards vertically). It rotates anti-clockwise 180 degrees and clockwise 90 degrees. It comes with a carry pouch and a flash stand which allows you to stand the flash up on a table.

Yongnuo YN560 IV Speedlite features both a 2.4 GHz wireless radio transmitter and receiver. YN560 IV is a long range manual flash unit capable of triggering other flashes from up to 100 meters away as well as being triggered with the RF-603, RF-602, RF-605 wireless transmitters or YN560-TX commander unit. The YN560-IV is powerful with a guide number of 58m at ISO 100, 105mm. The unit is also quite versatile with a zoom range of 24-105 mm, which is able to be expanded to 18 mm with the built-in wide-angle diffuser. Additionally, this output can be adjusted from 1/1 to 1/128 power in 1/3 and 1/2 EV steps.

Full bounce and swivel lighting is possible due to -7 to 90° tilt and 270° of rotation with the locking flash head. The flash can also be triggered optically with either instant sync or skip pre-flash options for simpler off-camera firing. A built-in PC sync port further enhances the flash’s connectivity and a Multi mode allows for stroboscopic lighting effects. The flash runs on 4 AA batteries and has a recycle time of about 3 seconds.
