YongNuo 560-TX Manual Flash Transmitter

$ 59.99
- +

The YongNuo 560-TX transmitter is one of the most exciting products we are currently selling in the off camera lighting category. For years, photographers have been waiting for a product that would wirelessly allow them to manually control flash power without spending upwards of $500.

Now you can get a flash (Yongnuo 560III) and this transmitter and have the best of both worlds.

Just to be clear, these do not do E-TTL or high speed sync. This is completly manual control. If you want more flash power you have to turn up the power level. If you want less, then you must turn the level down. No auto settings here.
Young Nuo does offer transmitters that will support E-TTL as well, and we will hopefully be stocking those soon as well. In the mean time, check out the Canon 430EXII or the Nikon SB700.

The YongNuo 560-TX transmitter is one of the most exciting products we are currently selling in the off camera lighting category. For years, photographers have been waiting for a product that would wirelessly allow them to manually control flash power without spending upwards of $500. The problem comes when you have a hotshoe flash up high on a light stand out of reach, and then the power level need to be changed. Up until this point, you would have to lower that stand, change the power level, and then raise the stand back up and hope you had it in the same spot. This was a very time consuming task. The other problem came when a hotshoe flash was inside a modifier such as a Westcott Apollo softbox or a Saberstrip. The flash would have to be either physically removed, or the modifier would have to be opened up in order to change the power level. This inconvenience has moved many photographers away from the Westcott style softboxes in exchange for a rear entry softbox such as the Lastolite EZ Box. I prefer the Westcott style because the flash points towards the back of the box and then bounces towards the font. This creates an even light that is hard to match in any other style hotshoe softbox.

Until this point your options were to 
a) deal with the time consuming inconvience of the situation 
b) move to a rear entry sofbox (does not change the high lights stand situation though
c) spend upwards of $300-500 on a wireless TTL system like Pocketwizard Flex of Radio Popper Jr. systems

 

But now you can get a flash (Yongnuo 560III) and this transmitter and have the best of both worlds. It is because of these reasons I have changed my personal lighting kit to the 560III and the 560-TX. I once again can use my Westoctt 28" Apollo box! (I for one think Westcott should publicly thank YoungNuo for letting us use their softboxes again) 

 

Just to be clear, these do not do E-TTL or high speed sync, but Young Nuo does offer transmitters that will do that as well. We will hopefully be stocking those soon as well. In the mean time, check out the Canon 430EXII or the Nikon SB700.
