Yongnuo YN560-III Setup




What do you think about this video?

Jon Wolf: I have watched the video numerous times and my yn560iii does not sync with my rf-603C on my canon 7D.. can someone please help?

Antony Miller: Thanks for posting. For some reason my rf -603 N transceiver only syncs with the the YN 560 III when connect to the hotshoe of the camera itself. Which isn't a problem since that's where it has to be while shooting anyway... it did however give me fits when I unboxed everything and was simply trying to test fire the units, lol. I finally just attached it and tried it, convinced it wouldn't work. I was pleasantly surprised when it did. These are great units... especially for the price. 

Hanny Alshazly: very nice video, thanks for posting it. I'm upgrading to this flash but also looking for a good transmitter and was thinking of either yongnuo ttl radio trigger yn-e3-rt or pixel king pro ttl. Anyone here has any recommendations?

Leni C: OMG! Thank you for this very clear basic guide. This is my first speedlight and it didn't come with a manual. I've been having such a hard time figuring out how to get it to fire properly and what all the buttons do!

Keith Eckert: thanks, great video... better than the instructions that came with the speed lites..

Rose Jesky: Thanks for the video. Very helpful, Do you know if I can set up high speed sync on the 560 III?

Matt Eves: Hi great vid, I've just bought a 560iii for canon 450d and some rf-603c transmitters. New to external flash, and having issues getting set up. Camera not recognising flash attached, also, can't get transmitters to synch with flash or be recognised by camera. Do you / does anyone have ideas / suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong ? Thanks. 

ToddB987: Thanks for the demo.. I've been wanting to put together a strobist kit for remote shooting with my Rolleiflex TLR. I have SB-24 Nikon Flash, but want a second light for 1-2 or 1-3 ratio lighting. This is pretty affordable and getting high marks for reliability. 

mrstlouis7: I've noticed that my t4i only works with this rf603 and the yn560II when using the view finder. Will not work with the lcd. Hope this helps some.

reuven79: Great video, work everything, thanks for your help

durhamrs: Will this flash unit work with a Nikon d3200

John R: Nice review. Does it have a locking pin on the foot to lock it into a Nikon type foot?

kanyike Ivan: i will do it....i am more than worthy

Alterick Wilson: Will it work with the 622C?

therichreports: I am new to flash too. so I understand if I buy two 560 III units I can set one RF-602 and one to RF-603 and one will trigger then other? or do i have to buy pocket wizards or something too? I'm using a GH3 that fires wireless. Flash is the only thing I have found confusing about photography. Since I read these work with the gh3 and quality is good i can get three of these for the price of a new panny flash

Mann Renzef: Is it works in 2nd curtain (rear curtain)?

Jon Mather: Make sure it is not in RX Mode with the flash button and setup how it looks at 51 seconds into the video

sigh rly: Thanks for the video helped me setup my new yn 560 iii

Jon Mather: It doesnt hav an AF Assist Beam

Alexandr Minzak: have some URLs for provment? It is very important...

Markus Lajer Christensen: You only need an RF603 on you hotshoe, at it can trigger alle you're YN560III, Theres is a foot included with the flash, and with it, you can mount the flash on you're light stands

TetradOpus: I know nothing about the receivers and transmitters. If I was to purchase the yn-560iii to connect it to my camera would I need both a receiver and transmitter or just one or the other? Also can I connect the flash to my light stand and do an off camera flash? If so what do I need so that when I click the shutter button on the camera the flash goes off with it.

Chris Aikin: thanks man. I was wondering about the channels.

Damian Dodd: Once you get into remote triggering your flash, you'll probably want several... Keylight, Fill Light, Hairlight, Background Light. So the 560 II is still usable.

therichreports: Thank you for explaining. Now I have a better understanding.

Sigge Bjerkhof: When i mount it on my D600, it doesnt fire at all, however it works with the 603 trigger, any idea what's wrong? Great video btw :=)

Chris Aikin: why not google it yourself? Internet is pretty easy nowadays :)

Jon Mather: Fantastic to hear

Jon Mather: Hypop

Jon Mather: You need to get a Yongnuo RF602 transmitter or a RF603 tranceiver, however I am not familiar if these are available/compatible with the GH3. But you get one of these for your camera, and then set the receiver mode of the flash(s) to match what trigger your bought (602 or 603) and then you will fire them all. If you cannot get them for the GH3, you will need a transmitter for the camera and receivers for at least one flash (the rest can be triggered via slave, S1, mode)

Kristijonas Mikuličius: I have eos 650D/Rebel T4i, i know it has built-in flash trigger, will it work with yn- 560 III?

MrMisterYSL: freak I just bought the YN560 II :\

Dan Solomon: I cannot, for the life of me, get my 560III to sync wirelessly with my RF-603. What did you do to get them to sync and get the blue light turned on? Thanks!

Jon Mather: It wont with some Canons from what I understand...I think Canon only rear curtain with Canon flashes..I shoot Nikon so do not hold me to that.

alejandrocosme1: change your settings. it might be the settings

nirakar rana: Which site u bought this from?

Mauricicio Schneegans: yes you can but the 560III has to set to S2 mode or you can use YN RF603 to trigger it

1841skipper: Strong wind?

Jon Mather: one can dream...Hopefully one day we will see a relaible, budget friendly flash with built in remote controllers

Gabriel Daniel: Thanks,you saved my ass.Spent days trying to figure out how to change the dip switch :)

gurudeclan: When combined with Yongnuo 622c on camera, will we have REMOTE MANUAL POWER control, from our camera??

Szőlősi Zsombor: Hey Jon, great info. I just ordered 3 of them. I have a question though: do they have an AF assist beam (Laser)? (when you use it on the top of your camera.)

Larry Mockus: Try going into Custom Menu by pressing "Light" and "Mode" buttons together and by pressing Up/Down arrows navigate to the screen saying RF 602 or RF 603. You can change between 602 and 603 by pressing Left/Right arrows. Make sure yours is set to RF 603. My flash came with RF-600TX transmitter and it wasn't working because the flash was set to 603. I changed it to 602 and it's WORKING!!!! :)

Jon Mather: It wont with some Canons from what I understand...I think Canon only rear curtain with Canon flashes..I shoot Nikon so do not hold me to that

Wesley Santiago: I know that it has high speed sink, but I wonder if it has rear curtain sink also?

Ramil Espenilla: can this be fired remotely off camera only using the 5d mk iii internal remote or do i have to buy wireless trigger for this specific brand?

Jon Mather: no probs, glad it helped :)

Alcistra Alcistra: Keep it still when reviewing drrrr

Kornelije Kovac: Someone reply?

Jon Mather: you only need a RF-602 transmitter or one RF-603 Tranceiver and then you can fire the flash remotely and away from the camera

Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
