YONGNUO YN200 TTL HSS Speedlite – Announced

YongNuo YN200 Speedlite


YongNuo have announced the much anticipated YN200 Speedlite, a compact 200Ws TTL and HSS enabled barebulb flash with built in Lithium-ion battery.

The YN200 Speedlite has been released alongside the new YN560-TX PRO Transmitter, both units incorporating the next generation 560 PRO Radio System, featuring auto sensing radio receiver modes for Canon, Nikon, and Sony camera systems.

As well as integrating the YN560-TX and YN-622 Radio Systems into one compatible system. So the YN200 can be conveniently incorporated with all of your existing YongNuo 2.4GHz flash gear.

NOTE – It appears YN622 enabled flashes and triggers will only be functional as receiver/slave units in the YN560 PRO system.

YongNuo YN200 Speedlite


The 200Ws output YN200 Speedlite offers 2 second full power recycle time, and around 500 full power flashes per battery charge.

Along with TTL and HSS, Remote Manual power levels are from 1/1 down to 1/64, in 1/3rd Increments.

6 Groups are provided as well as 16 Channels and selectable user ID’s.

YongNuo YN200 Speedlite


The YN200 provide the standard compact bayonet modifier mount used with similar barebulb flashes, though unusually there is no clamping thumbscrew to lock reflectors and modifiers in place.

And unlike the EVOLV / Godox AD200 the YN200 do not feature a modular removable and exchangeable head.

Though the flash bulb does plug in though, so options like a remote extension head (or even a round head) could still possibly be designed to plug directly into the flash bulb socket.

The YN200 do not offer support for any LED modelling light options though.

A Micro USB Port is provided for firmware updates, as well as a 3.5mm Sync Port.

    “Upgrade interface: Micro -USB” Looks like USB-C in the photograph

    • Mikhail 10 months ago

      If you zoom in you might be able to see it a little better. Definitely not USB-C

      • John Wilson 10 months ago

        Yes, you’re quite right!

  2. Alberto 10 months ago

    I believe this is a missed opportunity on YONGNUO’s part. They could have improved the light by extending the flash tube out of the socket.

    Oh well.

  3. James 10 months ago

    Only 1/1 to 1/64 power settings in 1/3rd increments? I use 1/128 on my AD200 often and the new AD200Pro will do 1/256 in 1/10th increments. Again Yonguo has missed the boat.

      Hi James,

      We will have to wait and see, though I would guess YongNuo have likely limited the power range to keep the color variation in check (at the lower levels).

      Notice they haven’t even provided a color variation spec.

  4. SULMON 10 months ago

    Moreover, it’s only usable with canon, nikon or sony

    Godox AD200 … usable with the same brand + pentax + olympus + fuji + some others ….

    so a 622c won’t trigger this? SEriously, i’m sicking of buying triggers from a company and then they release new flashes that are non compatible!

  7. jerry 10 months ago

    No 622 trigger compatibility?

    Ffs yongnuo. I’m out.

    • Hassan 10 months ago

      it does say it is compatible with 622 or am I reading this wrong?

      “As well as integrating the YN560-TX and YN-622 Radio Systems into one compatible system. So the YN200 can be conveniently incorporated with all of your existing YongNuo 2.4GHz flash gear”

      • Meh 10 months ago

        Look at the page announcing the new radio system. There’s a graphic there that shows how the systems match up. The 622 doesn’t link to the flash.

          I’m not sure if the YN200 may possibly have a YN622 receiver mode or not, but the point of the new 560 PRO radio system is to run everything off that so that its all then compatible.

          So you would set your YN-622 to the new 560RX mode (requires a firmware update) and then they are directly compatible with the YN200.

          (EDIT / UPDATE – It appears YN622 enabled flashes and triggers will only be functional as receiver/slave units in the YN560 PRO system).

          • enda 10 months ago

            FH is there update for this or are you suggesting they should do one?

              Hi enda,

              I just looked and there is a firmware V1.08 for the YN-622C II, though the changelog included only describes up to V1.07, so I’m not sure if V1.08 includes the new 560RX mode or not. (The YN-622N II firmware download currently available is quite old).

              Until we can actually try a YN560 TX PRO transmitter its hard to be sure exactly what YongNuo have done, though the more I look at this now, its looking highly likely there is only 560RX modes going to be available for the YN622 gear.

              So the YN-622TX would effectively be unusable in the 560 PRO system, and the Master modes in the YN622 enabled flashes would not be compatible. So basically any YN622 enabled gear will only work as a receiver in the 560 PRO system.

              With that being the case its going to be a slower and more confusing transition to the 560 PRO system than I would have hoped, but YongNuo absolutely need to move to the one compatible system.

              So as unpopular as it might be, I hope YongNuo actually haven’t continued with an YN622 receiver mode in the YN200 (there is no mention of one) as people need to move on to the 560 PRO system (where you can still use your previous YN622 gear as slave units).

              • enda 10 months ago

                OK thanks FH

  8. Gethin Coles 9 months ago

    anyone know if it will work with the original 560 trigger? (not the 560 txii)

    looking at the cost in AUD, its about 1.6x more expensive than the ad200, but I have 2 yongnuo flashes already and the transmitter, but the ad200 comes with a regular flash head and reflector… ho hum

  9. John 9 months ago

    The Yongnou YN200 is one version only! Is that correct? If I attach my
    YONGNUO YN560-TX PRO Nikon Version 2.4G on-camera Flash Trigger to my
    Nikon D750 it will fire the YN200
    I asked the same question to sellers who say they only have the YN200 in stock for Cannon.
    Am I correct in saying. The YN200 is universal for both Cannon and Nikon Cameras.
    The importance is to have the correct version trigger for you camera.
    Eg. YONGNUO YN560-TX PRO-N 2.4G for Nikon DSLR
    YONGNUO YN560-TX PRO-C 2.4G For Canon DSLR

      Hi John,

      That is they way I understood it, though its hard to be completely sure with YongNuo until you actually see what they have done.

      The current YN200 listings do all appear to state “Canon” version, so I’m not 100% sure on this.

  10. Edward 9 months ago

    Looking at the dimensions of the flash do you think it will fit in the S bracket? Comparing it to the speedlite head of the ad200 (on paper) the yongnuo seems a bit bigger.

    • Russ 9 months ago

      There is a YouTube video (no narration) that clearly shows the YN200 fitting into the S-Type bracket. The same photographer also has an unboxing video (in Italian). While it solves the S-Type bracket question it’s not very useful otherwise, as I don’t speak the language! But it does mean the first units are finally reaching people, so hopefully we’ll start to see some real reviews soon… 😉

  11. Russ 9 months ago

    Also in reference to an earlier question, the YN200 box (seen in the Italian unboxing video) appears to only reference the make as the YN200 without any mention of Nikon or Canon. So that also suggests, what we’d already guessed, that despite the vendor ads, there’s likely only 1 model of AD200. You just have to choose the Canon or Nikon transmitter to match.

  12. Tobias 8 months ago

    Great seeing this.

    Will there be US versions and OUS as with some of their other triggers? Or are they all the same and will work no matter where you buy them?

  13. mjolby 8 months ago

    Will this work using YN622 triggers?

  14. Ole Stian Jørgensen 8 months ago

    I got the Yongnuo YN 200. Unfortunately, I can confirm that you cannot use YN 622-TX on this device. YN 560 TX works fine. but then it is only manual not HHS or TTL. so yes you should have YN 560 TX Pro

  15. cesar 5 months ago

    Does anyone try to trigger the YN200 flash with the Yn622n tx?

    • John Wilson 5 months ago

      Yes, the person who was the commented just before you did.

      It doesn’t work.

  16. georgep 3 months ago

    too bad it does not work with Canon Rt protocol. Otherwise very decent for the price.
