Yongnuo YN560 IV | Flash for Canon and Nikon

Yongnuo YN560 IV is the latest incarnation of Yongnuo’s YN560 speedlite systems, adding wireless master control as well as slave mode. It is the upgraded version of YN560 III now supporting wireless master option. The Yongnuo YN560 speedlite range has provided outstanding value for money and given many people the chance to learn off camera lighting without breaking the bank.

Featuring both a 2.4 GHz wireless radio transmitter and receiver, the Yongnuo YN560-IV Speedlite is a long range manual flash unit capable of triggering other flashes from up to 100m away as well as being triggered with the RF-603 and RF-605 wireless transmitters. The YN560-IV is powerful with a guide number of 58m at ISO 100 and 105mm. The unit is also quite versatile with a zoom range of 24-105mm, which is able to be expanded to 18mm 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. It comes with a protective case and a stand.

Yongnuo YN560 IV is a manual flashgun that can control and be controlled by Yongnuo’s 2.4GHz wireless system. The fourth generation in the YN560 series, the YN560 IV is effectively the YN560 III (radio slave flash) and YN560-TX (radio commander) rolled into one device.
Considering the extremely low cost of the Yongnuo YN560-IV combined with very good build quality, great power output (GN58) and wireless control (both optical and 2.4Ghz radio), this highly flexible speedlite could well be the perfect tool if you need a compact portable studio setup. For the cost of just one genuine Canon or Nikon speedlite you can get a YN560-TX transmitter and 4x YN560 IV speedlights for the classic four point lighting system (Key, Fill, Hair and backdrop) and still have money left over for another couple of lights for even more creativity.

  1. 5 out of 5


    Outstanding value for money. Very good build quality, great power output (GN58) and wireless control (both optical and more important 2.4Ghz radio), this highly flexible speedlite could well be the perfect tool if you need a compact portable studio setup. I use 4 of these and Yongnuo YN560-TX controller for my on-location work

  2. 4 out of 5


    Real bargain for what it offers. You can make portable lighting kit with few of these and YN560-TX commander for the price of only 1 Canon or Nikon speedlite. I can not ask for more at this price. NO ttl support though

  3. 5 out of 5


    I have been using 4 of these last 2 years and they are perfect for studio or outdoor sessions. Complete lighting setup with yn560-tx controller for only 350$. Excellent flashes
