vbruklynnnnc says:

Hi, what’s a good Yongnuo flash and triggers for my Nikon D5100? Any suggestions?

arnoldgd84 says:

whats the difference between the Yongnuo 560 and 460?

MrPingaw0790 says:

i have money for 1 SB-700 but for the same price i can get 2 Yongnuo YN-565ex[pretty good reviews] what do you think? im new to off Flash Photography – and also looking for cheaper but reliable transceivers? pocket wizards are expensive.

have u had any compatibility issues with third party flash? i have a nikon-D7000
i barely take my camera with me when i go out so i thought to start flash photography indoors and backyard so this helped alot….great tutorial man.

Thanks 😀

CamCrunch says:

I think you should be able to. I’m not 100% sure though.

Jesus Dominguez says:

Hey man, i have a question for you:
Can i use this triggers with a Fujifilm XE-1?
Cheers, and thanks for this video.

Karama Omar says:

Thanks bro
plz, can you give me the link “in amazon for example”for those equipments you used, im thinking to buy some of them
morevoer, whats the purpose of the umbrella ?

CamCrunch says:

They should work for much longer than that!

Karama Omar says:

im thinking to buy one flash like this kind , but im woried about its quality,
Do you think it will work with for more than a year ?

amandararaxo says:

Actually I asked about The picture you are standing looking back, how many speedlights did u use on this photo? Did u use something like a softbox to the speedlight could light your hole body? Thx!

TheBrunch says:

Hey man, really nice videos! i have some questions for you… Well, i want to know if my canon 60D works with the Yongnuo YN565EX, as a slave remote flash light. I mean… do i need any trigger or receiver to make it work wirelessly? because 60D has built-in slave mode transmitter. on the other hand, in order to shot my slave flash, do i need to use my pop-up flash every time i want to trigger my slave flash? or can i use it without using the pop-up flash, just wirelessly? thanks a lot man 🙂

CamCrunch says:

They only work in manual.

amandararaxo says:

This flash triggers works just in manual mode or also TTL? Do u know if it works with a Speedlight Metz 50 Af 1 that has Slave and Servo modes includes. Thx

amandararaxo says:

Hey body, wts up? First I wanna say ThankU for sharing your knowledge with us and ur videos are very important for me as a beginner photographer. Specially on this video I got a doubt about the samples you put in the end. The picture you are standing looking back, how many speedlights did u use on this photo? Did u use something like a softbox to the speedlight could light your hole body? Thx!

pianomansas says:

Thanks so much!


CamCrunch says:

I’m sure you can. I think I bought a set and two separate receivers when I was first starting off. If you but the RF603, they are transceivers, which means the units will work as receivers and transmitters. You can buy two sets of those!

pianomansas says:

Thanks for this video it helps a lot! I have a question, If im using 3 totally off camera flashes, can I buy the youngnuo transmitters and receivers separately? So I dont have 2 extra transmitters laying around.

CamCrunch says:

You can use your pop up flash to trigger your flash in slave mode.

eatthename says:

Hello bro I need to know something. I have a Nikon d5100 and Yongnuo YN560 II Flash so do I have to buy trigger for off camera flash use!!!

CamCrunch says:

No you dont, you can use what you have.

Junior Aguilar says:

hey my camera has a wireless mode for external flash.. do i still need the reacivers ?

Junior Aguilar says:

hello please replay :)–
heyy can u put a special tutorial on how to exactly do strobist photography and wat settings and set ups to do 🙂
thanks i appriciate if u did 🙂
im your fan –
peace

cp3onmtv963 says:

Yup…

Tony De La Rosa says:

No you do not. I have a 580 EXII and what I do is I go through the menu and disable the built in flash. The settings are under flash control (first red menu tab, located at the bottom). Just make sure that 430 body is pointing towards the camera (you should be able to rotate the flash head).

CamCrunch says:

Yes, its great! In the next few months, I’m going to be putting together some more expensive kits, but this equipment is what I’m currently using!

gtochad says:

would you still recommend this setup? im thinking about getting the same setup for myself for christmas (apart from nikon compatible triggers and i guess umbrella bracket?) would you still reccomend this flash over others in that price range? the YN-560 is $45 now

ForsakenXColours says:

Sucks that all this gear costs about twice as much in Germany 😀

AusNav09 says:

Yes but it still fires a small amount of light to trigger the flash optically.

AusNav09 says:

I FREAKING LOVE YOU ALL YEEEAAAAH!!!!!!

ptlofts says:

do you actually have a 7D? theres an option on the Menu that you can trigger external flashes without the build in flash fireing. the build in flash just gives a signal. theres no light getting out of it. got it? thanks.

Artur Medina says:

you can´t trigger the external flash without the build in flash.
with the options in the menu, you can make the xternal predominant over the build in…but no matter what, it will fire! the xternal flash needs its information in order to work.

ptlofts says:

you’re partially right but you can trigger xtrnal flashes without the build in flash fireing. its on the camera menu.

Hà Tuấn Anh says:

Hey there, are you familiar with “Photo SFXart Tricks” (just do a Google search for it…)? There you will find a useful free video demonstrating how to take brilliant photos. It made it easier for Matt to make pictures which have that jaw-dropping-effect when you take a look at them. I hope it helps you also…

CamCrunch says:

I’m not too familiar with the Canon, but when I was using Nikon CLS you could turn of the built in flash, but still make it fire your off camera flash. I would have though that Canon would implement it the same way with their flashes. I guess not.

Artur Medina says:

yes you do!
this wireless build in function of the 7d is not the same thing…what it does is: when the light of the build in flash of the camera hits the external flash (in this case, the 430 exII…same as mine, btw), it will activate it intantly. so…they only work together! if you want to trigger only the external flash, you wont be able. you´ll need a wireless reveiver

CamCrunch says:

No you do not.

andyh0316 says:

I have a canon 7d and EX430 II. My camera menu has a wireless built in function. Do I still need a trigger/wireless receiver or watever its called?

CamCrunch says:

No problem! Hope you enjoy using them!

Archeat2k says:

Thanks, man. I just bought all the gear you recommended. Excited to start learning about off-camera flash. 🙂 Appreciate your videos.

CamCrunch says:

They should work just fine on a Canon 550D
