Yongnuo is known mainly for their affordable, but mostly reliable, flash triggers and knock off speedlights. The Chinese company just announced another budget lighting product, the new YN-14m ring flash.
Yongnuo already produces the YN-14EX, which is E-TTL compatible, but with the 14-M they decided to go back to basics. The Yongnuo YN-14M is an all manual ringlight that keeps things simple, which makes it compatible with most camera systems.
YN-14M Product Specs
- Double Lamp System
- Large, Easy To Read LCD
- LED AF Assist Beam
- PC-Sync Connection
- External Power Socket
- Supports multiple filter sizes: 52mm, 58mm, 62mm, & 67mm
- 3-5 second Recycle Time
Overall, this looks like a solid manual ring flash unit. I may pick one up to do a review, if that is something you all would be interested in. The noteworthy thing here is the price: these are just now hitting Ebay at around $100 US, which virtually the same price as its older brother that has TTL support.
