    Need an OFC for outdoor/ low light modelling- need advice on this YN setup

    Hi Guys

    I've been researching lighting setups for a few weeks now (i have a VERY low budget!) and want to do outdoor shoots in late afternoon/ night and currently have no flashes or lighting equipment but my inbuilt flash, which is terrible.

    This is the kit i'm leaning towards... its a youngnuo 460 II wireless difuser umbrella kit

    http://protog.com.au/yn460ii-flash-w...kit-p-296.html

    Then there's this one.. yongnuo 467 wireless difuser umbrella kit $250
    http://protog.com.au/yn467-speedlite...non-p-208.html

    I just wanted to know- is this going to do what i want- is it going to be bright enough for outdoor photography in low light slash no light?

    I really cant spend anymore than $250, so it's a great budget fit- they did have another kit with the Yn560 wireless http://protog.com.au/yn560-flash-wir...lla-p-205.html but it's $300, so slightly off budget.

    ahhh biting the bullet is so hard!

    I basically just want the advice of people who've used these flashes/ umbrellas and will be able to tell me if it will give off enough light.

    thanks very much

    I currently have 4 YN560, and 1 YN468 for TTL stuff for back up camera.

    I used to have 2 YN 460/462 - and the power they gave out compared to the YN560 was a lot less. Its good to have more power at your disposal for flexibilty such as the power to overcome the sun whilst shooting outdoors, weak flashes cant hit as hard or as far etc. In saying so, even 2 YN460 is adequate enough for most situations, but when you start shooting say - a bridal party - it might struggle to fill enough. Besides, the YN560 recycles a lot faster too at 1/1 full power if using good batteries.

    to me bridal is the same as shooting models, only they are not models, they are still posing.

    if and when you get to the point where you are required to shoot multiple models at once, or when their distance is spaced out more apart, the weak output of the 460 may be questioned, as I had experienced a few yrs ago both on location and in studio.

    Thank you very much- that was really helpful. I do plan to get another flash soon, so i might go for the cheaper option of the 467 for $250 and then save another $300 and get the 560 as a second slave. Then i'll have 2. Eventually i'll probably want three anyway, so it can't hurt to have one with less power in the end thanks again.
