Yongnuo Goes Back To Basics With New All Manual YN-14M Ring Flash

By Anthony Thurston on June 3rd 2014

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.


What are your thoughts on this new YN-14M ringlight? Does it look like something that might make a good addition to your kit? Leave a comment below to share your thoughts.

    Since I’m a Nikon shooter, this appears to be my only choice for this novelty. Have many uses for it, but would love to see a hands on review.

    Hello! I recently just added the Neewer JY-670 to my arsenal (link below). Could you do a review of the Neewer(viltrox) JY-670 in comparison to this Yongnuo YN-14M? From what I’m seeing here is that it’s basically the same exact product with just a different name on it.

    Snazzy. I would buy this if it works. Particularly the AF Assist Beam feature. The blocked AF Assist has always been a hinderence with the adapter-style ring flashes like RayFlash or the O-Flash. Please feel free to review the product.
