I have two of these and just ordered a third. These flashes are the most reliable TTL on/off camera system I have used. The built in receiver works flawlessly with my YN622s and much more reliably for some reason than other flashes with a YN-622 attached. I am a full time pro, heavy event/wedding shooter, and have been through at least 10 different speedlites. Of the Yongnuo line, I have had the YN-560, the YN-565, the YN600 and the YN685 of course. I use the YN622 triggers which are as close to perfect as I have had. My Pocketwizard TTL triggers are in my closet.

I'ved owned 3 other yongnuo Flashes, this is by far the best. The flash mount system has been dramatically improved over the plastic twist on version. it has a canon/like click mount system that is way more secure . also it receives wireless transmission from the yongnuo 622-c transceiver without any additional hardware. this is the most reliable/cheap/professional off camera flash setup for Canon. Speaking as a professional wedding photographer, the last 2 models had difficulties with batteries moving and the flash cutting off (after extended use) and the flash mount not working (after extended use). this model solves all of that and gives you a price point that's 66% less than cannon's. Canon's flashes will always be superior in build quality and endurance but when you can buy 3 of these for the price of 1 canon then you know the way to go.

I love the flash, it works amazing and is very smooth. Quick to recharge as well. Very sturdy. Sadly, the slave only works with remote transmitters. The actual slave function itself does not work with camera flashes, only YN flash to flash slave. You will need another flash or a transmitter in order to shoot with the flash off camera and wireless. Other than that, the camera itself works amazing and I definitely recommend it. Also, just FYI, it does NOT work with Pocketwizard TT1 and TT5. It will but you cannot secure the flash onto the wizards as the flash will just keep firing over and over without you triggering it.

Been using DSLR cameras for 3 years now, and thought it was time to jump into wireless flash photography. I did many many MANY hours of research.. reading reviews and learning new terms along the way. I wanted to buy a set of flashes and a trigger set that wasn't cheap, reputable, but also didn't break the bank. I ended up deciding that I wanted the following features (which happens to be my PROs list for this flash): ETTL & AF assist - for those moments when I need Auto Mode and for when I'm shooting in the dark (which I am a lot!) High Speed Sync - in order to take outside pictures in bright sun with a flash and wide open aperture External Battery Capable - for if/when I need the faster flash recycle time or longer battery life Reliable triggering wirelessly - I found out that this brand of flash and it's controller 622c-tx were a very good reliable combo Built-in Receivers - so that I can save money by not buying separate transceivers/batteries plus save on space in my camera bag. I ended up buying 2 Yongnuo 685, and 1 Yongnuo 622c-TX Controller - I did some playing around today and I am really excited so far. During my testing, not once did the flashes miss-fire (the built in receivers are working great!) The Flash came with a very sturdy looking carrying pouch, much better than a cheap velvet bag. The ETTL Auto is looking to work VERY well inside - I uploaded an example of ETTL while inside a dimly lit home. I also uploaded a picture I took outside testing out backlighting and front lighting CONS: A minor cosmetic con, the "select" button in the middle of the wheel is loose and flimsy the button flipped upside down, doesn't seem to effect the flash but cosmetically it made it look and feel cheap. (one of my attached photos shows it slightly) I plan to update this review as I use it more, but so far, very exciting stuff!

I just got two of these in the mail today so Ive only a limited amount of time with them. However I can already tell you that they are absolutely amazing! The build quality is a step up from previous Yongnuo not that it was bad before, these just seem better. The LCD screen is a real pleasure to use and easy to see. A couple of small but nice features is the lever lock instead of the usual "thumb wheel" to lock the flash on a camera or stand. I have always had a problem with those wheels trying to get my fingers in there to tighten or loosen the flash. The lever is quick easy and holds tight. The next thing is the "jog wheel" instead of the usual buttons to scroll through parameters. MUCH quicker and again, just seems easier for me anyway. The color temp seems to be spot on and the amount of control you have with a YN622TX is just perfect. So easy even a caveman can do it! The flash overall is just a really well made, well thought out product. You can trigger this flash with a 622, 622TX, 560TX or a 603. Now the drawback here is each trigger offers different levels of control. With the 622 you get it all! HHS, Zoom, flash power, grouping etc. With a 560TX you can do it all BUT HSS. With the 603 you can only trigger the flash itself. In other words, if the TRIGGER can or cant do it, then you can or cant do it with this flash. Make sense? Clear as mud? Obviously the best setup is going to be with a nice 622TX. That being said however, if you have a standard 622C trigger it will still perform the same functions, you just have to use the control in your camera menu to do it. (Assuming you have a Canon DSLR made after 2007) Heck some people even prefer that. Me, I LOVE having the controls right on top of the low profile 622TX. I cant wait to really put these puppies through their paces, its going to be sweet having all this control PLUS the added benefit of HSS when I need it. For $116 you cant go wrong, Im already ordering two more as soon as I sell my old stuff!

The build quality is really great on this. It feels almost as good as some of the high end canon gear. It dosn't have an angle lock button like the canon ones but there is no chance its going to shift around. I tried out HSS at 1/8000 of a second on my 7d and it works great. No issues at with the flash talking back and forth to the camera for flash settings. The locking quick release is way better than the cheap locking rings that are on most flashes. The AF assist does a good job helping the camera focus in low light situations. Cant wait to use this with the YN-622C-TX.

Great, inexpensive flash that does TTL and HSS on-camera, and the same off-camera triggered with another YN685 flash unit or the YN-622C-TX controller. The power output (brightness) is about the same compared to Canon's flagship flashes. As with all Yongnuo products, the quality control sucks which means your flash could be dead on arrival or show some weird errors when you test it thoroughly. In my experience the Yongnuo flash products tend to either die during their first few uses or last for a long time. So I always bring a backup, but never had any of the flashes die on me during a shoot (except for a trigger once). To understand compatibility (in a nutshell), Yongnuo has three systems of radio flash triggers: 1. The RF-602 / RF-603 / RF-605 / YN560-TX triggers 2. The Canon-cloned YN-E3-RT which only works with the 600EX-RT line 3. The YN622 / YN622-TX The YN685 flash can be triggered with the YN622 / YN622-TX. With this trigger system it can do TTL and HSS. The power and zoom settings can be adjusted with the YN622-TX unit. This is the preferred combination for this product. The YN685 can also be triggered by the RF-603 / RF-605 / YN560-TX. With the YN560-TX you can adjust power and zoom of the flash. It can not do TTL and HSS as the YN560-TX is a manual trigger. The YN685 can not receive signals from both systems (603 / 622) simultaneously although there is a function that suggests otherwise. At least with my model it does not work. The YN685 needs to be set to either the 603 or 622 system. The YN685 does not work with the YN-E3-RT system at all.

Just got this a couple of days ago and I'm pretty darn pumped. I have a Canon 600XR-RT at work - which is a fine, fine flash - at a fine, fine price. I now have six Yongnuo flashes - 3 560s, 2-468 and this one. The 560s are not TTL - the others are. This flash's radio trigger won't trip any of the others that I have of course, but they are all infrared triggered in Slave mode. So - although this is a good base flash for building on with newer units having radio triggers, I can still use it as a primary main light flashgun, off camera triggered by my Pocket wizards- and have it trigger a fill flash, backlight and hair light YN flash on stands with umbrellas all for less than half the price of one of my Alien Bee studio strobes. Basically for $400 I have a five light mobile studio. The light quality is consistent and I seldom have misfires. Five stars for being a pretty darn good copy of a high end Canon flash that, if (and when) it gets knocked over, I don't feel the need to jump off the roof. I've taken 2 - 3 pretty good drops on the 560s and they still keep coming up working. All in all, I'm a Yongnuo fan.

Great buy, given the price and feature set of this unit. I've had few of these Yongnuo Speed Lights since they came to market and most have endured the professional use (I'm a wedding photographer) for many years. Recently, one of my 685 I bought back in summer of 2016 and 580III I bought just a few months ago started malfunctioning. I learned that it pays to buy these units from a reputable and customer service oriented reseller as Yongnuo only services warranty for units purchased directly from them and refer to the resellers if you purchased elsewhere. I had purchased the 685 from FotoPal and the 580 III from 'Value-Added Products' The former responded within a day; whereas, the latter never bothered to respond at all. Long story short, I received the replacement unit from FotoPal yesterday. Amazon had to credit me back for the 580 III as 'Value-Added Products' never gave a hoot.

Just got this flash in the mail yesterday. I love it! Well made, huge sensor in the front, Took me a few minutes to get used to the settings. I own two Yn-560-II speedlites, and the settings are a bit different. I wanted a bit more output power, and for the money, this flash is it. I read the reviews complaining that is it not an optical slave, but it works fine me because I can use my YN622C-TX to fire it as a stand alone in wireless mode, or attach it to a YN622-C receiver, and use as a main flash along with my YN560s as slaves. Either way, I can always use my YN560s for slaves if needed. I am more interested in using the speedlites off camera. The only time I use them on camera is with a bracket when I'm shooting runway or something. This flash also includes a over heating sensor. The instructions warn that if you fire it at full power for too long, to allow it to cool down for 5 minutes before continued shooting. It also has a flash compensation settings up to 3+, so you can play around with the output settings. I plan to purchase another YN685 very soon. Yes, it would be nice if it worked as a master and slave, but if you have a trigger, and other speedlites with slave mode, it works just as well. I shoot in both ETTL and manual, and do a lot of model and glamour work, and regardless which modes I'm working with, I just make in camera adjustments to compensate. So the fact that is not an optical slave does not bother me at all. I'm a long time Canon pro, and very happy with the Yongnuo flashes. I haven't used Canon flashes in years, and do not plan to go back, even if I could afford them. I hope this helps.

Amazing. I do NOT understand the comments about the radio having "limited functionality". EVERYTHING works. I'm using this with a YN-622C-TX on my Canon 6D and can control everything from the camera. I've tested regular flash, rear curtain sync, multi, e-ttl-II with automatic tracking of the focal length of the flash to match the lens, High Speed Sync, etc. It all works. I see no need for an external radio. HSS allows a 1/4000th (on the 6D) shutter speed and it's ideal for stopping action indoors like children who never stop moving. With a normal flash a lot of ambient light gets in because the shutter must be slowed down to less than 1/250th to sync with the flash (depending on the camera) and this light blurs the photo if your subject is moving fast. You end up with a sharp flash photo with a blurry ghost. Very ugly and disappointing, until now! For less than the cost of one Canon Speedlite I got 3 of these plus the transmitter. It also looks well built. It DID take some trial and error to get it working but it was MUCH less painful than I thought it would be to get to work. I'm no flash expert. The manuals aren't the greatest, but I'm sending back the separate transceivers I bought and using the radios inside the flash, again, with full e-ttl, rear curtain sync, multi, HSS, etc. using an inexpensive YN-622C-TX on my 6D. I've been wanting HSS for a long time and for the price it can't be beat.

ETTL II, HSS, RF603 & RF622 wireless reciever system built in (no need to attach a YN622 to go off camera or RF603, etc), great power output, equivalent to the Canon 580 EX II in all ways, for way less cost. Pretty well built. Price is right for features and system. And it works with old Canon cameras, like the 5D classic (the 565EX line didn't work with ETTL on the 5Dc for example) which is what I picked this up for (to work with older Canon bodies and get modern ETTL, etc). Great on-camera flash for spontaneous stuff, and works into your speedlite fleed if you're already Yongnuo, to mix into the 603/560/622 protocols without any extra bits. Awesome!

So far so good. Picked this up to go with my 622C-TX controller and it required minimal brain cell usage to get them to link up and start firing. Controls work as you would expect both in the camera menus (80D) and on the 622C-TX controls directly. It's obvious in hand that it isn't a major name brand, and the feel isn't up to par with my older Canon 580 EX II, but for 1/5th of the price, and radio (not optical) wireless control, I'm most definitely NOT complaining. The stand that comes with is is plastic, not metal, so time will tell if that affects longevity of that piece. Speaking of the mounting bits, the quick release mounting is nice. I'm used to the same from my Canon, and this one does have a little more play in it, but not enough that I'm too worried. If I were a pro and making a living from my equipment, I would spring for the real deal (already did it once with the 580 and certainly don't regret it... and I had two shoots that more or less paid for it at the time) but for weekend warrior and enthusiast work, this seems to be a fantastic option.

I loved this flash. It exceeded my expectations. Well, I am not a professional photographer, but I used a set of 2 flashes, with remote, for one entire afternoon of photo session and the Yongnuo's performed quite well for my hobby. I will pay more attention of goods from China.

I bought 3 of these with a YN-622C-TX trigger and they work great together. I have a couple of Canon 580EX flashes, but they are not compatible with my 7D. Upgrading to 1 Canon 580EX II would have cost more than the 3 flashes and controller. I have an ST-E2 transmitter that works with my 580EX flashes, but the Yongnuo radio system is much better. If these are as durable as the Canon flashes, you can't go wrong by buying them.
