    Best Value for Money Off-Camera Flash

     | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Bought one of these to use off-camera and as a spare on camera. I like to vary between ETTL and manual off-camera and this seemed to give the best of both worlds at an amazing price.

    The build quality (externally at least) is so far above the previous flashes released by Yongnuo. It looks and feels pretty much like the 580EXII which this is blatantly modelled on. For Canon users with a 580EXII the controls will be very intuitive as the layout and GUI again are based on the Canon design.

    Performance is very consistent both on and off camera. I was so impressed I bought another and use these in preference to the 2 Sigma Super 530s I have. I have kept the Sigmas as backup as there are still reports of these flashes failing after a period. I'm not sure if that's just the people who have had a problem being more keen to review rather than those who haven't.

    There are a couple of differences between these and the Canon 580EXII which should be noted as they could be a deal-breaker for some...

    The 580EXII supports HSS whereas the 565EX does not.
    The 580EXII can be used as Master whereas the 565EX cannot.

    More minor differences are...
    The 565EX has a more traditional screw-lock unlike Canon's sliding lock.
    The battery door on the 565EX does not have the additional sliding lock (but the door on the 565 feels extremely secure).
    The 565EX does not have the weather-proofing of the 580EXII.

    Personally I'd rather have one 580EXII and three of the Yongnuos rather than 2 580EXIIs. I don't think there's a better value for money flash out there at the moment.

    These look the business with impressive specs, but the manual gets lost in translation. I doubt it's reliability! Warranty return on a daed Canon version was a pain and negated the initial cost advantage. I bought this one for a Canon. (and then a Nikon the week after on promotion) Impressed enough at first (hence the Nikon purchase too). All turned to dust very quickly when the Canon version failed completely after 200 +/-flashes and I had to return it to Hong Kong. Lots of hassle and setttled for a refund. The cost saving carrot soon gets eaten up when these things fail. You pays your money you takes your choice! With the return postage cost, having to make a video to prove to one of the HK based traders what problem I was having, then the hassle of writing back and forth. Blah blah blah - pointless grief and simply not worth the time and trouble. Finally, I gave up!
    I also have the Nikon version, took me a while to suss out the Multi (strobe) feature (due to manual not being lucid and me slow to realise a slow shutter speed was needed to get the multiple flashes going). Now, I have to say (thus far) I am really pleased with the whole thing.
    Instruction manual needs rewriting in English though.

    All in all, - now after a rethink - Yes - I recommended it.
    An older YN560 Flash has also started to become erratic after just a few months. All in all, the ideas and designs are superb but too many failures and too much grief in returning them to the Far east. I've given up on YN flashes for now.
    I'm sure they will get the problem of reliability beaten in due course, but just now it's like the hype of a mission to Mars, only to see the thing blow up in mid air. Frustrating!
    Other (less sophisticated) Yongnuo equipment I have is very good though (so far!).

    Nice flash to buy if you can't, or don't want to buy a 580EX.

    I have bought this product to take photos in places that haven't got many light, such as churches, night clubs, and such.
    I wasn't expecting much for such a low price, but I was surprised when I tried it. It can even be configured by the in-camera menu, so you don't have to remember how to control it from the flash body!
    This flash is compatible with many Canon cameras, it is even compatible with an old EOS 300 (not digital, 35mm film SLR)! The TTL works fine.
    The optical modes are nice, and easy to use. I have not tried the wireless mode for nikon and canon because my camera does not support it and I do not have a transceiver.
    The light is much more powerful than a 430EX by Canon, close to the 580EX. Also it has a cardboard reflector, where the 430EX lacks of it. Its size is almost the same as the 580EX.
    It lacks of High Speed Sync and Master Mode, but if you don't need them, this flash will do for the third of the price of a Canon 580EX. If you need them I would go to the Nissin 866 instead of the Canon 580EX anyway.

    Sorry for my English, I'm Spanish.

    Un flash dal basso prezzo ma dalle prestazioni eccezionali.

    E' incredibile pensare che possa esistere un flash con caratteristiche simili se non uguali al Canon 580 EX II ma ad 1/4 del prezzo; invece sì ed è lo Yongnuo Speedlite YN-565 EX, eccellente numero guida, sistema TTL evoluto (ETTL II), controllo diretto da fotocamere dotate di controllo wireless (es. 7D, flash stroboscopico e manuale, che dire, un ottimo acquisto consigliatissimo.

    Excellent for unserious photography, still immature for professionality.

    I already own three Canon 430EX I & II and one Canon 580EX. I bought YN-565EX because I needed one stronger flash than 430EX but for lower price than 580EX has. And I needed a flash to have HighVoltage connector (for additional battery pack). 430EX does not have this, 580EX is overpriced so I went with YN-565EX.

    I like the build quality. I also own some other products from Yongnuo and I knew that this item must be well built. And on my opinion it is. There is also good thing that the menu looks just like in Canon Speedlites. I like the factory menu options and that it allows many thing to change/improve.

    But what I don't like is its uncertainty. I used it two times as off-shoe flash powered with new and full Eneloops and with 100% working receiver and it just did not fire. Once just, other three times no. On 1/8 manual power. So I do not use it for any very important thing where I can not afford stay without flash.
    And I do not like its very uneven brightness of the flash. If I do continious shooting on manual flash program with power 1/1, I get seven firings before it needs some time to recycle. And from this seven flashes two are normaly exposed and all others are differently exposed. It is seen that from third to seventh firing the luminated area is every shot a little darker. I don not have this problems with 430EX's or even 580EX.

    But after all for the money it is offered, this product is not good but very good. Compared to other similar not very known brand names of flashes, no-one offer so many good factors in one flashgun for price like YN-565EX costs.
    If I ever need another good flash for low cost and will not use it in a professional way, I will go with YN-565EX. It is enough good.
    For every serious job like weddings, prom nights and similar, this flash is still under a question mark. Maybe it will work perfectly but.... what if not?
    I would not take risk anymore. I did two times and have bad experiences and I will not again. Until they will improve its performance.
