Yongnuo YN568EX | Flash Speedlite for Nikon
Yongnuo YN568EX is a powerful 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 360° for versatility in bouncing your light.
Yongnuo YN568EX is the first TTL flash from Yongnuo to feature High Speed Sync (HSS) allowing camera shutter speeds up to 1/8000th of a second. Before releasing Yongnuo YN685, the YN568EX was Yongnuo’s top-of-the line flash speedlite for Nikon users. It is packed with features, missing only wireless master mode and external high voltage battery port.
Yongnuo YN568EX is a great alternative to much more expensive Nikon SB910 or SB700 flashes. YN568EX offers the same functions and same or even more power at much lower price. High guide number (58m), TTL and HSS (high speed synchronization) make this flash an excellent tool for both professional photographers and advanced amateurs.
Yongnuo YN-568EX is capable of wireless slave TTL functionality when used with other flashes. It is portable by running on 4 AA batteries and it can recycle in maximum 3 seconds when used on full power. Other features packed into this flash include 2nd-curtain sync and a multi-mode. Additionally, it has a 2.5mm sync port for remote triggering and comes with a carrying case and stand.
Yongnuo YN568EX is a flash similar to YN565EX with one additional feature which YN565EX lacks. It is a HSS (high speed synchronization) which gives photographers more creative freedom allowing them to use large apertures on a bright day, or to even overpower the sun with a small speedlite or few.
