Recently Announced YN510EX Speedlight Now Available

By Anthony Thurston on July 28th 2013

We recently posted about Yongnuo’s new YN520 speedlight, you know – the one that accepts both Canon and Nikon TTL wirelessly, but no TTL via the hotshoe. Yongnuo has been quick to get the new unit on virtual shelves though and we are able to announce that this new strobist centric speedlight is now available.

510ex

You can order your own YN510EX via Amazon for only $89.99, a great deal for a wireless TTL slave unit.

This unit is going to appeal to users of Canon or Nikon’s wireless flash systems. These YN510EX speedlights offer wireless TTL capability for a low price, making these great slave units for your system. I can see these being especially useful in situations where you may not want to risk your more expensive speedliights. Simply grab several of these and if something happens it is much better to be out $90 than $300+.

For more information regarding the YN510EX speedlights you can check out our previous article, or if you feel like trying to decipher a bad Chinese to English translation you can try the official product page provided by Yongnuo. If you are interested in picking a few of these up you can YN510EX via Amazon for only $89.99, or Ebay.

    Going to check into these. As the article states, nice to have these to put in precarious places rather than a $500 speed light.

    That means that these aren’t compatible with Pocket wizard TT1/5, and are only TTL via optical?

    It’s like Yongnuo read my mind. I have 3 of their 560II flashes and they are incredibly reliable and easy to use. My only wish was that I could use them as part of Nikons CLS, it seems Yongnuo is listening to its users. This is fantastic, I’m definitely going to get a pair of these.
