Yongnuo introduced and additional variation of the original YN600, this time providing variable colour temperature between 3200K and 5500K. However, they’ve also introduced a little bit of confusion by calling it the same name as the original daylight balanced version and changing only the suffix. Continue reading
The YN600 Pro LED Video appears to be impressive for the money, with 600 LED beads daylight balanced to 5500K, barn doors and gels, so in theory this should be an amazing product. However, it’s not without it’s flaws. Continue reading
Like many professional cameras, speedlites seem to be getting bigger, so it’s a huge relief to see the new i40 flash system from Nissin totally buck that trend.
