I just starting using speedlights recently and to be honest it's very overwhelming. I have watched countless videos but I still do not have an answer, I was hoping someone here can explain it to me.
So my question is: I have two speedlights, a YN968EX-RT and another YN560IV. I also bought an YN560-TX trigger thinking that I would be able to use the trigger to control both flashes off-camera. Well, it didn't work for reasons that may be obvious to you, but I don't understand. I would like to know:
- Why was I not able to connect both flashes with the YN560-TX trigger?
- Is it at all possible to buy a trigger system that will enable me to remote control both these flashes, and which system can I buy?
- If I buy the YN-E3-RT trigger will I be able to control both, or will I be able to control just the YN968EX-RT flash and then use the YN-560 in optical slave mode and have to change the output manually?
I would appreciate any links to forums or videos that can explain how the system works that makes these flashes connect.
