YONGNUO YN560-TX II -Transmitter Now Available



YongNuo have released the new YN560-TX II transmitter unit, compatible with the YN560 based Remote Manual radio flash system.

The YN560-TX II now providing a quick locking hotshoe clamp, as well as a smaller and lighter body design than the original YN560-TX transmitters.

Like the original YN560-TX, the YN560-TX II are available in Canon and Nikon versions, though this dedication is only for the flash wake up feature.

Either transmitter should otherwise work on any camera providing a standard shotshoe.

    Except that the previous version has zoom until 105mm I can’t see any other functional differences!

    no 2.5mm shutter release port, useful to use with a rf603 to trigger it remotely.
    no AF assist light.
    quick locking hotshoe clamp
    only Manual and Multi mode.
    But, on a godox X1t, you can have the second curtain 😉
    this one is not for me, for once

    I still do not understand why the Yongnuo folks are still getting “new” product releases so wrong. Why release a 560TX -II that does not incorporate the feature of the 200mm zoom feature of the YN660 which has been announced two years ago. It is my inclination that Yongnuo just took the guts of the 560TX and stuff them back into a new design just to release an incomplete update for the 560TX line. I don’t know about y’all but I would be content if Yongnuo released a concept spec for a proper 560TX instead of just releasing an “update” with no feature update. Why spend the extra money for no difference than the current 560TX I have.

    Yongnuo 560TX II bang for buck = Rating “F”

      you pay the same as yn560tx and get a version with smaller case, quick-lock and additional cfn (page on/off, max group limit). Further features may be added.

      It’s $39 dollars for gods sake. I have bought one just for the quick release upgrade.

      Hello Andy, thanks for the info, I have just bought the 660 and the yn560-tx II and I did not understand why the zoom on the trigger is limited, now I see the clear picture. Do you know if there is any other way to go around the problem, I am planning to buy more 660s flashes. They should say that the device it is not fully compatible with new flash 660.
      Thanks Again.

    I have been doing some research on my current setup and adding two Yongnuo components, however I am not sure about a “solid yes, it will work” scenario. I currently have a Nikon D7200, (2) Yongnuo YN-622N’s, and a Yongnuo 568EX flash. I was contemplating purchasing this YONGNUO YN560-TX II AND a YONGNUO YN968N flash to utilize with my current setup. Can anyone foresee issues with compatibility. I greatly appreciate somebody taking the time to verify this. Take care and Happy Holidays!

    Czym się różni wersja I od II? Mam ślub w Rezydencja Protasy i nie wiem, którą wersję mam kupić.

    Hi. Will tris trigger the YN968EX-RT flashes? It says in the article it’s compatible with the 968N flash.
