Yongnuo YN565EX | Flash Speedlite for Nikon

Yongnuo YN565EX is a powerful flash unit which is compatible with all Nikon cameras that have i-TTL control. It features a powerful guide number of 58m at ISO 100 and 105mm for illuminating your subject along with a zoom head with coverage from 24-105mm. Also, the flash can tilt from -7 to 90° and rotates 270° for versatility in bouncing your light.

Yongnuo YN565EX is fully powered and fully featured. Although Yongnuo released several flashes with more features like YN568EX or YN685, YN565EX still remains one of most popular flashes though. This is because it is an economical choice for people not requiring HSS, but also because it has a high voltage port for external battery packs, which the YN568EX unfortunately lacks.

If HSS is not required, the YN565EX is one of the most economical options to use off-camera with the very popular YN622N TTL triggers, providing TTL, Remote Manual power control, and Second Curtain Sync.

Yongnuo YN565EX features wireless slave TTL functionality and full Nikon i-TTL support. YN565EX Speedlite is a great choice for both on-camera and off-camera use. When used off-camera it is easily triggered by camera’s with built-in commander mode or other speedlights with master TTL functionality or as a simple optical slave with instant sync (S1) or skip pre-flash (S2) settings.

The flash offers a variety of other useful features, including a wide-angle diffusion panel and a bounce card built into the head. Other capabilities are a modeling light function and sound prompt for audible notifications on flash status. The LCD panel assists in viewing settings and the flash will recycle in about 3 seconds at maximum power. First and second curtain sync modes are available as well and it has PC sync and a socket for an external power pack. It runs on 4 AA batteries.
