Flash Modes and Wireless Flash

Manual mode is the option on the Yongnuo 560 as there is no form of TTL. The two optical slave modes are special manual modes where the trigger signal is received through a light sensor, but the flash intensity is still to be dialed in for each shot on the unit itself.

Manual Flash Mode “M”

A simple manual mode is all that is needed for “strobist” type photography. With simple x-sync firing, additional PC socket, manual mode down to 1/128, and the 2 optical slave modes the YN560 leaves nothing to be desired.

To adjust the output level and move through the 8 settings from 1/128 power to 1/1 just use the left or right button on the center command keys. Great thing is that the strobe stores the last output level setting if you switch between modes or even when you power it off or exchange batteries.

If smaller increments than full stops are needed you can use the “up” and “down” buttons: at any given level you can add or subtract in 1/8 EV steps up to +4/8 EV and down to -3/8 EV. So you can have half power minus 1/8 for example, or half power minus 2/8, down to half power minus 3/8. And up to half power plus 4/8 correspondingly. Only at the 1/128 setting you can’t subtract, and at the 1/1 setting it’s not possible to add in 1/8 EV steps anymore (yes, this would bring you beyond maximum power so it does not make sense).

The Yongnuo 560 has one more great feature for “strobist” style shooting – and I use this one all the time: you can activate an acoustic signal that notifies you when the speedlite is recharged after a pop. The sound signal itself reminds me of the beep on my Nikon SB-600 although the beeping on the Nikon is available only in AWL / CLS wireless TTL. Great job to integrate this as an option !

Wireless Flash Mode

The lack of a TTL mode means there is also no compatibility with the dedicated, optical Canon or Nikon wireless TTL control systems (called “AWL” as a part of the “CLS” in the Nikon world). The Yongnuo YN-560 can’t be automatically controlled from a compatible camera, or master flash, or a speedlite commander such as the Canon ST-E2 or Nikon SU-800.

The optical slave mode “S2” with pre-flash detection can be used as a workaround sometimes, but the flash level still must be set by hand in S2.

I got it to work in a simple setup with a Nikon D90 and one SB-600, it does however get confused when multiple flashes are used. “S1” is the simple slave mode and a good triggering option with manual flash or studio strobes.

 

The optical slave modes are very reliable but the safest option are radio flash triggers such as the Yongnuo RF-602 or RF-603

Attach them on the YN560 flash foot, or use the PC port, and there is your hassle-free wireless flash setup !

Supplied Accessories

The Yongnuo YN-560 comes in a nice box which is (a bit surprisingly) not much bigger than the boxes of the 460 series. Yongnuo is quite generous when it comes to packing accessories with their flash.

Inside the Yongnuo box you find the following items:

  • the flash unit
  • a flash stand
  • a soft pouch
  • instruction manual
  • leaflet with an overview of the 460 series flash models

The flash stand is made of sturdy black plastic and has a nice looking metal thread on the bottom. There is also a hole for the locking pin.

    Hi, I’m trying to get my Nikon D90 to operate with my SB-700 and 2 Yongnuo 560 speedlights. I tried to get the YN 560 to fire with its optical slave when the SB-700 fired (off camera) but I got nothing from the YN 560.

    Can you tell me what settings are needed for the YN 560 to trigger when the SB-700 flashes off camera? Does the SB-700 have to be triggered in manual flash (not i-TTL) or does it matter? I understand that the YN 560s are “dummy” flashes that don’t communicate with the D90 or work in i-TTL mode.

    Thanks!

    • Love D®.

      hello Jeff

      Welcome to our online store and thank you for writing to us
       

       

      Were you using the flashes outdoors ?

      Most slave systems dont work well outdoors due to the reduced sensitivity when there is strong sunlight present so the sensor cant “see” the flash on your main flash in order to trigger the slaved unit

      If you use it indoors or in shaded areas then should be no problem

       
       
      There is nothing wrong with your SB-700, using i-TTL or manual mode would not make a difference as the slaves would trigger as long as they “see” the sudden change in exposure due to your main flash. And yes, you are correct, the YN-560s are manual flashes.

      I would recommend that you get triggers. I myself use the RF-603 triggers – http://famecherry.com/shop-with-us-2/essential-studio-equipment/triggers/rf-603-transceiver

      I prefer this because it runs on AAA batteries so there is no hassle to run around watch shops trying to find small small batteries and all that headache =P

      Other than that well, it has 4 channel switches and its auto detection system is very useful when I need a second shooter with me.

       
       

      If you have any other questions please feel free to ask me, it is my pleasure to assist you =)

    Will my YN ST-E2 trigge multiple YN 560 flashes? Also, will the HSS feature on the trigger work on these YN 560 units?

  • Hakimo

    hi, do u have this model for nikon ? :)

    • Jeff Bryson

      I have 2 of the Yongnuo YN560 model speedlights that I use with my Nikon D90 DSLR. The YN560 will not communicate with the D90 by itself–it’s a “dummy” flash that can only be use in full manual mode (so no i-TTL capabilities with the Nikon camera). The way you use it with a Nikon DSLR is to get radio slaves or some other method of sending a signal from the camera to the flash. I personally use Cowboy Studios radio slaves because they are very inexpensive and work well enough for my purposes. This is the model I use:

      You can find many more models of radio slaves that will work with these units at B&H Photo Video, at various price points. See the following link:

      Good luck!
