Came defective – YongNuo Y565EX 2.0" LCD TTL Flash Speedlite Speedlight for Canon DSLR - Black (4 x AA) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Strong and real guide number. Works beautifully with my Canon EOS Rebel XTi on eTTL mode. It even reconizes its cropped sensor. Works in TTL slave mode with both Canon and Nikon systems.
Cons:
Mine came with a problem but, I have it fixed locally. Does not work as a master commander.
Speedlight head, not strong enough with some large diffusers.
Little loose on the hot shoe. Feels like it is a half millimeter smaller.
Other:
It is hard to beat, for the price/cost ratio. They should have a better quality control in their factory though.
Bottomline:
Great Deal.
By the way, DealExtreme offered me all the needed support with the problem.
