Thank you for the input and especially the link to the Strobist setup page, I appreciate it! To me it also seemed that there might be something slightly questionable quality-wise with studio sets that go around 60 EUR. But their size and bulkiness is what tipped the scales. Since posting my question, I decided to buy the Stroboss 36 / Godox TT350 model, ...

Yes, a so-called Strobist setup (a radio controlled off-camera hotshoe flash/speedlight) can be great for learning and experimenting with basic off-camera lighting, even while it won't deliver the same way a proper studio strobe setup would. However, if you can find a studio setup with two lights and two softboxes for less than a TT350+X1T, the chances are ...

If the transmitter can be triggered via hotshoe, any passive adapter that has a female hotshoe and a PC sync port connected to it could be used. Such adapters exist (eg Vello HSA-PSU), sometimes in a variation that has a male hotshoe on the bottom, female hotshoe on top, and a PC port - although they are not mainstream, given the potential for damaging ...

Profoto make a case with a shoulder strap for their A1 flash. I'm sure there are similar cheap knockoffs somewhere. Godox makes a similar type bag for their much larger AD600 Pro. Many lens cases come with shoulder straps, Some might be the right size for your flashes. I just use the cases that come with my Yongnuo and Canon speedlights. They have belt ...

I've never tried this, but I think the Frio Cold Shoe Adapter would do the trick. See Is there a simple flash bracket which holds a flash securely? — 8ts a plastic shoe which snaps securely to the flash"s foot. There's space near the front which you could fit a thin strap though, or you could get a threaded pin to attach to a wider strap.

I did not find a definitive answer, so i did what every reasonable person would do and just bought a used nikon and a canon version to test it :). As slaves they both accept nikon and canon master TTL flashes, if set correctly. Like Michael C pointed out, nikon flashes have a golden font on them, and canon is in silver. Here I switched roles and accept ...

Is this Yongnuo specific model able to be fired in slave mode by another flash? Yes. The Yongnuo YN565EX III has S1 and S2 slave modes that allow another flash to send the "fire" command to the YN565EX III. In S1 mode the YN565EX III will fire when it detects a bright flash of light. In S2 mode the YN565EX III will ignore the first set of short bursts, ...

It depends on which version of the YN565 you have. There are both Canon and Nikon versions. Neither version is cross-compatible with the other system with regard to TTL on camera. If you have the Canon version, TTL should work on camera or off camera with a Canon TTL Master flash, such as the YN568EX II. If you have a Nikon version, TTL will work off ...
