Yongnuo Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2 Review
Almost identical to the Canon ST-E2 but with improved range and takes AA batteries. Wireless communication is by infra-red pulses requiring line-of-sight with the slave speedlite. Designed to work with the Canon optical EX wireless system.

Yongnuo YN-622C-TX Controller Review
E-TTL radio controller using Yongnuo’s 622C radio system. Can be used to control the YN685 speedlite or a YN-622C radio receiver, which in turn can be attached to a Canon 580EX or 430EX to add full radio wireless communication.

Yongnuo YN-622C II Trigger Kit Review
The trigger kit consists of 2x YN-622C II radio wireless transceivers. Each unit can act as a transmitter or a receiver that support E-TTL II using the Yongnuo 2.4GHz 622C radio system. Each unit can also be controlled by the YN-622C-TX controller.

Yongnuo YNE3-RX Receiver
E-TTL II radio receiver that uses the Canon 2.4GHz RT radio system. This unit allows older Canon EX Speedlites such as the 580EX II (that use optical wireless) to be added to a Canon radio system and to be controlled using a ST-E3-RT controller or any RT speedlite master.

Yongnuo RF-603C II Kit (manual transceivers)
A pair of RF 603 II transceivers which can be used as either a transmitter or receiver. These are simple manual transceivers and cannot communicate E-TTL information or change power settings. They use the Yongnuo RF 603C radio system.

Yongnuo YN560 TX II Transmitter Review
Updated version of the popular manual transmitter for the YN560 III & YN560 IV Speedlites. Compact body, better LCD layout and locking hotshoe clamp. Uses the RF603C radio system so can also be used to trigger the RF-603C transceiver mentioned above

Yongnuo YN560 TX Transmitter Review
Transmitter for the YN560 III & YN560 IV Speedlites. Uses the RF603C radio system so can also be used to trigger the RF-603C transceiver mentioned above
