Yongnuo YN565EX is the most popular Yongnuo TTL flash for Nikon users. YN-565EX is a great alternative to much more expensive Nikon SB700 and SB910 speedlites offering the same functions at much lower price. Great flash for professionals and advanced amateurs.

Yongnuo YN565EX | Flash for Nikon

Yongnuo YN565EX is a flash similar to YN560 in terms of design with the features of the YN-468, plus some huge upgrades on the new YN565EX making it a much more capable tool for digital flash photography, both on the camera hot shoe and in wireless mode.

Customers are often in doubts when choosing between Yongnuo YN565EX and Yongnuo YN568EX. I heard this question so many times. Here are the things you should consider when choosing between these 2 excellent flashes for Nikon:

  • YN565EX does not support HSS mode, YN568EX does support.
  • YN565EX is cheaper than YN568EX
  • Some Nikon entry level DSLR cameras do not support HSS, so buying more expensive flash would mean nothing for those users. Nikon cameras below D7x00 series do not support HSS (Nikon D3x00, D5x00 series)
  • If you only shoot indoor, HSS is not important so save money and buy Yongnuo YN565EX

Featuring wireless slave TTL functionality and full Nikon i-TTL support, the YN565EX Speedlite from Yongnuo can increase your lighting capabilities by offering an off-camera option. The flash’s general abilities include auto zooming from 24-105mm and an impressive guide number of 58m at ISO 100 and 105mm as well as tilting from -7 to +90° and 270° of rotation. When used off-camera it is easily triggered by camera’s with built-in commander modes or other speedlights with master TTL functionality or as a simple optical slave with instant sync or skip pre-flash 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. 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.

    Excellent flash, in terms of features very similar to Nikon SB700. I bought it when my Nikon flash got faulty and never regretted. Really great flash for the money i paid for it.
