YONGNUO YN560-TX PRO Transmitter & Radio System – Announced

YN-560TX PRO

 

YongNuo have announced the YN560-TX PRO, TTL and HSS enabled Radio Transmitter, and next generation 560 PRO Radio System, which will finally integrate the YN560 and YN-622 Radio Systems into one compatible system.

The new 560 PRO Radio System also now features auto sensing radio Receiver modes for Canon, Nikon, and Sony camera systems

NOTE – It appears YN622 enabled flashes and triggers will only be functional as receiver/slave units in the YN560 PRO system. While previous YN560 and RF602 / 603 enabled gear are compatible as transmitter or receiver where applicable.

 

The YN560-TX PRO transmitter for Canon will be available first, with Nikon and Sony versions to follow.

The new transmitter features control for 5 Groups, in TTL, Manual, and GR Group Modes (Mixed TTL & M). With remote Zoom control available where applicable.

NOTE – TTL and HSS will only be possible with the products originally supporting these functions.

    Would you possibly have an email contact at yongnuo as I would like to review their new 560 TX-Pro as well as the yn-200 flash on my youtube channel.

    I’ve covered their products in the past with massive response. eg., 1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImBL6xtGjSo&t=8s 2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETzG0W3tjew&t=4s

    I will appreciate your kind support if possible.

    Best regards,

    Paul Phillips

      Hi Paul,

      Its hard to get a response from YongNuo directly, you’re likely best to contact them via their Ebay store as they usually reply there.

    Hi! I bought the 560 TX-Pro. But how to start working with a YN560 III?

  3. domino 1 month ago

    Hi all

    I wan to ask, can you control both flashes in same time on different radio frequencies?

    I mean if it is possible together shoot with yn560iii and yn968 ?

    And also be able to use ttl on yn968

    I have the Nikon version of the YN560 TX pro as an upgrade from the 622 system using YN968N flashes. However the Pro transmitter won’t work as TTL does on the 622 system. I replaced the 622 so i can use the YN200 which has yet to turn up This wasn’t really what I was after.

      I could be wrong, but I have the same setup, I think for now TTL doesn’t work with YN968N because Yongnuo hasn’t released the firware yet.. they say in the YN560 TX pro that you need latest firmware, but the 1.09 for 968N is from 2017. So in 560 mode it works in manual mode, but for now not in TTL. And in the YN560 TX pro manual-book I discovered that they released the YN968N II, never heard about it before (-I have 5 YN560 III and 4 YN968N) ; the fun never ends with this brand 🙂

    I have a YN200 and a YN560 TX Pro Nikon version. Please teach me how to switch on the high speed sync for both devices. The user manual does not show me how to do it but only stated that it allows HSS. Thank you

    I have the same issue as Jay Chan but with Canon. I’m using the YN 685 and 560TX Pro. How do we make this work? Help please 🙂

    Ok, so now I got the two to at least talk to each other. Flash in RF603 slave mode and TX Pro in Master mode. But, I cant get HSS to show up on both the flash and transmitter at the same time. If the transmitter has it, the flash will not receive the signal while in ETTL mode. And if I change flash to Manual with HSS (rf603slave) I get banding after 1/200th. This is frustrating…
    Anyone
