    Flash help!

    Hi all I am currently looking to purchase a couple of flashes. I have 2x YN465 which I want to upgrade from. In an ideal world I would like to grab 2 or 3 SB900's but alas it all comes down to the all mighty $! I don't much about the other alternatives so I was hoping you guys could recommend some alternatives that won't break the bank. I was also wondering if anyone knows what the YN560's are like? I'm currently shooting with a D90, thanks in advance.

    I have 4x YN560s, its great for strobist stuff, and at 1/1 power its just as powerful as the SB900 or Canon 580EXII. I combine them with the Yongnuo RF602 triggers, but indoors on its optical slave mode at S1 works great too without needing triggers.

    you will only be needing the SBs if you are after TTL function, otherwise it would be a waste of money for you.

    Thanks mate I'll order some YN560's I already have the 602 triggers with the other flashes but I'll grab some more just in case as I have only the 2. Do you know where to get decent cheap soft boxes? Protog on EBay have some that seem ok priced to me but I'm not sure on quality etc.

    Protog are an AP site advertiser...see this thread for some feedback. If you click through the Protog banner in the first post of that thread they'll know you've come through AP (which helps Rick pay the bills)...



    Cheers.
