Egad Brain! Yongnuo Puts Radio Triggering Into Their Flashes


Gad zooks Batman! Canon is no longer the only manufacturer with radio transmission in their flashes. Now, Yongnuo can do it too! Today the company has announced their Yn 560-III, which is the upgrade to their YN-560 II. To trigger the flash, you’ll need to use either the RF-603 or RF-602 transmitters; which is weird because neither of the two work with their according receivers. The company is touting that the flashes can be triggered from as far away as 100 meters.

Head past the break for more details.
