Yongnuo Flashes for Canon & Nikon DSLRs

Yongnuo YN968EX-RT


Yongnuo YN968EX-RT is a RT enabled speedlite flash for Canon DSLR cameras. The YN968EX-RT is a high-end flash speedlite that is compatible with Canon’s 2.4GHz RT radio system that the proprietary 600EX-RT (II) strobe features. The radio system allows TTL triggering and flash control in a setup that’s easier and more reliable than infrared, especially as it does not involve direct line-of-sight mechanisms and will also work through obstacles. Yongnuo YN968EX-RT is also compatible with Canon’s new 430EX III-RT and 600EX-RT II flashes, as well as Yongnuo YN600EX-RT and YN600EX-RT II speedlite flashes

Yongnuo YN968EX-RT speedlite flash is fully compatible with Canon’s 2.4 GHz radio flash trigger system and E-TTL / E-TTL II metering. It features a powerful guide number of 60m (ISO 100, 105mm) as well as an long zoom range of 20-105mm, along with a wide-angle diffuser for 14mm coverage on full-frame cameras. Bounce lighting is also possible with tilt from -7 to 150° and rotation left and right 180°.

Yongnuo YN968EX-RT | Speedlite Flash for Canon

Yongnuo YN968EX-RT is powerful, radio-equipped speedlite flash which features an LED video light and aims to be one of the most versatile lighting solutions on the market. The flash is designed with support for Canon’s E-TTL / E-TTL II metering as well as compatibility with Canon’s 2.4 GHz radio triggering system, while it also has optical TTL slave modes that work with both Canon and Nikon units for maximum compatibility. Also, the LED light, which features a sliding diffusion panel, can output approximately 300 lux at 3.3′, making it useful for brightening up a video.

Yongnuo YN968EX-RT is the latest release in the line of Canon RT compatible speedlite flashes. It features an original case design (rather than a Canon 600EX-RT clone) with a built in adjustable LED light located under the flash head.

For illuminating your subjects, the YN968EX-RT offers a high guide number of 60m at ISO 100, 105mm and can zoom from 20-105mm for covering a variety of lenses. A pull-out diffuser is available to expand coverage to wide-angle 14mm lenses. Bounce lighting is simple with -7 to +150 degrees of tilt and 360 degrees of rotation, and through TTL communication it has access to high-speed sync, 1st and 2nd curtain sync. Additionally, the flash is equipped with a PC sync port, an external power port, and a USB port for firmware updates.

The Yongnuo YN968EX-RT is compatible with Canon’s 2.4GHz RT radio triggering system, which means you can use it out of the box with the Canon 600EX-RT, 600EX-RT II and 430EX III-RT flashes and ST-E3-RT transmitter, as well as Yongnuo’s own YN600EX-RT, YN600EX-RT II flashes, YN-E3-RT transmitter and other YN968EX-RT flashes.

There is an LED light on the side of the flash head, providing a source of continuous lighting for video work. The output is daylight-balanced and an clip-on orange filter is included to match it with incandescent ambient lighting.

Along with radio transmission and reception for wireless triggering, the wireless TTL master and slave functionality of this flash also extends to standard optical pulse triggering, where the YN968EX-RT is compatible with both Nikon and Canon flash systems. Also, it has a recycle time of about 3 seconds and has high-speed sync, 1st and 2nd curtain synchronization settings. Also, it supports a multi flash stroboscopic mode for multiple flashes during a single exposure. It runs on 4 AA batteries and comes with a case, mini stand and diffuser cover.
