YongNuo have announced the YN560 IV which is the latest update in the very popular YN-560 series of manual flash units.
The YN560 IV now adding a master mode, or effectively a YN560-TX radio transmitter unit built into the flash (in addition to the remote manual radio receiver already built into the current YN-560 III).
The YN560 IV master flash can control the remote manual flash power, and flash zoom length, of 3 individual groups of remote YN-560 III and YN560 IV flashes (while the YN560-TX has the extra ability to control up to 6 individual groups).
Like the current YN-560 III, the new YN560 IV flash has the remote manual radio slave built in as well, which can be controlled by other YN560 IV, YN560-TX, or simply fired by RF-603 II, RF-603, and RF-602 manual radio triggers.
Although I haven’t had a chance to review the YN560-TX properly yet, I can say it does work very well. And this is a fantastic inexpensive remote manual system (there is no TTL) with the 2.4GHz radio system all neatly built inside.
The YN560 IV flashes are otherwise the same as the YN-560 III, and will likely replace them eventually. So if you may not need a master built into your flashes so much, keep an eye out for good prices on the YN-560 III while they are available.
