The Yongnuo YN560 IV Negative Display is the next iteration of one of the best-selling manual flashes. The Speedlight with built-in RF receiver is the perfect choice for strobing enthusiasts. The Negative Display version is equipped with a new, easy to read LCD screen. It is compatible with RF603, RF602 and YN560 TX wireless systems.
High power and precise flash control
The YN560 IV Negative Display features a high flash guide number of GN 58. The high power and wide control range (from 1/1 to 1/128, with 1/3 EV or 1/2 EV increments) allow you to precisely adjust the flash power to suit the lighting conditions.
The flash offers two modes of operation: manual and stroboscopic.
- Manual mode (M) gives the user full control over the flash parameters. In manual mode, the flash power is set manually by the user.
- Stroboscopic mode (Multi) enables a series of flashes to be fired during a single exposure, allowing you to create creative photographs depicting the movement of the subject in the frame.
Multiple triggering methods
The new version of the Yongnuo YN560 flash can be triggered in multiple ways:
- ISO hot shoe – the flash attached using the hot shoe directly to the camera sled or radio trigger.
- PC connector – using a cable with a traditional PC sync connector.
- Traditional flash triggering (S1 and S2 modes) – using a photocell that reacts to the first flash of another flash (S1) or additionally automatically skipping the pre-flash of another flash (S2).
- Yongnuo RF602 and RF603 radio flash triggering systems – using the built-in module.
Flash radio triggering system
The built-in radio communication module allows communication with other flash units and triggers working on the Yongnuo RF602 and RF603 systems. Remote flash triggering using 2.4 GHz radio waves provides a longer range (up to 100 m) than optical triggering. The triggered lamp also does not have to “see” the flash of the controlling lamp, so it can be hidden behind the elements of the scene. An additional advantage of radio communication is the ability to remotely control the settings of multiple lamps from the interface of a lamp operating in master mode.
In Slave (RX) mode, the Yongnuo YN560 IV can operate on one of 16 available communication channels and one of 18 groups. This allows precise control of multiple lamps “linked” into groups, as well as the freedom to work in a shared space with other photographers working on similar radio systems. As a slave lamp, the YN560 IV can be triggered by radio signals from the YN720, YN660, YN560 IV lamps and the YN560 TX, RF602, RF603 triggers.
As a unit Master (TX) the YN560 IV Negative Display lamp can control the operation of YN720, YN685, YN660, YN560 IV, YN560 III lamps, arranged in three groups on one of 16 available radio communication channels.
The mode allows you to creatively use the flash effect at the beginning or end of an exposure. The Yongnuo YN560 VI flash offers both first-curtain and second-curtain flash synchronisation, allowing you to significantly influence the character of your shots. Flashing at the second curtain (at the end of the exposure) allows you to capture the effect of movement behind your subject, such as streaks behind a moving car. In case of flashing at the first curtain (at the beginning of the exposure), the blur registered by the light is in front of the moving subject.
Readiness to work at any time
Power management systems used in the flash have reduced the time between flashes (at full power and basic power) to just 3 seconds, so the flash is ready to work at almost any time.
The high-contrast, backlit LCD Negative Display and intuitive, easy-to-navigate menu allow you to conveniently navigate the flash functions. Large, well exposed buttons ensure comfortable operation, even in low light. The lamp also offers a system of optional audible signals to indicate the status of the device.
Light tailored to your needs
The design of the Yongnuo YN560 IV flash allows you to quickly and easily shape the nature of the light it generates. The movable head with manual zoom function, built-in diffuser and reflector allows you to creatively modify the style of light generated to suit the needs of the selected scene.
An advanced system protects components from overheating. If the temperature of the components rises, a protection mechanism will inform the user and then limit the available functions of the lamp, thus protecting the lamp from damage.
Universal power supply
The power source for the Yongnuo YN560 IV Negative Display reporter lamp is four AA type cells (batteries or rechargeable batteries). Compatibility with popular, widely available “sticks” makes the lamp usable practically anywhere in the world. In addition, to optimise the operation of the lamp, it is equipped with an energy saving function which automatically switches off the lamp in case of long periods of inactivity.
Additional power source
To further enhance the performance of the unit, an external power bank or battery tray such as the SF-18C or SF-17C can be connected. The additional external power source allows you to extend the operating time without changing batteries and reduce the time it takes to charge the next flash.
YN560 IV is equipped with a micro USB port. We can download the latest software from the official Yongnuo website. The manufacturer cares about the development of their products and ensures compatibility with new camera models.
