This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


The EOS 4000 lacks the center contact in the hotshoe. This makes it incompatible with a simple manual flash like the YN560.

Only Canon flashes, (and some 3rd party ETTL flashes) will work without the center contact.

It would be possible to use the YN560 off camera if you use some kind of compatible trigger/receiver combination.
