Any cheap flashes that are worth it? Or should I save for an ~$500 one?

I was thinking about getting either a YN-560 II or YN-560 III, but as of yet I haven't.

My friend bought a Neewer TT850/Godox Ving 850 and it's a damn awesome flash. Dat recycle time and dat battery life. He let me borrow it and about 1/4 to 1/2 power with about a 600 shots, it's yet to go down a bar on it. A ton of nice features and for $100 it's hard to beat. It's supposed to last 650 pops at full power.

For the Yongnuo 560 II just make sure to get some high quality batteries, like Eneloops, and a good charger. Nitecore i4 is a great basic charger. More of a set it and forget it charger. Smart chargers may be a bit more, but you do get more features.

Pffft, get Einsteins! :P

post #25558 of 29551
I've been looking into the Yongnuo YN-500EX as my first flash b/c it has TTL, can be triggered off-camera by my 70D and has high speed sync up to 1/8000, which is the 70D's top shutter speed. It's roughly equivalent to the 430EX as far as size & power. For $110 it seems pretty tough to beat.

As far as Einsteins... $$$$$ vs. $. I want to play with a flash, not break the bank on one. biggrin.gif

afaik this one has wireless ETTL but is only manual ON-CAM

check the YN 568EX IIfor on cam ETTL & HSS

or the 565EX for about the same price of the 500EX

hey guys, I have an odd request.

So basically, I got into photography as a hobby with no intentions of doing a side-biz with it, but I did some work for some really well-connected people a while back, and I've been getting emails and calls left and right for photo work. ( mostly highschool sr photos, pre-prom photos, and graduation stuff )

Before all this, the only work I did was for friends, co-workers, family, and people I generally knew.

But now its people I've never seen or met before, and the first question always seems to be "what do you charge" with people I know, I would tell them "I work for free, but donations are accepted" as most of it was for family, and family friends. Doing that, payment would mean anything from cash, beer, or keys to their nice car to play around in for a bit.

First off, I don't like the way I see alot of people in the area going about it that charge '$XX for a 30-min session, and 15 fully edited photos' with additional photos, edits, and time chargnig more. ( i get the idea and reasoning behind it, but its not for me )

I'd much prefer to say for $X amount, we will do all the shots you want, wheverever location, no dumb charges for changing outfits, props, or whatever. You get all the photos from the day, and I'll pick and choose the best ones and edit them for you, and if there are any you think I missed, just let me know.

But the thing is, I don't know what to charge.

I'm no pro, I don't plan on quitting my 8-5 to do this. Just basically helping people out who couldn't afford a dedicated pro opened a flood gate of work for me. And i'd like to bill my self as simple and affordable.

Basically, I want to be affordable and help people out, but don't want to end up screwing myself over.


Any ideas, tips, or suggestions from some of you more seasoned guys out there?
