Yongnuo YN-500EX or YN-568EX II?
Jun 26, 2013

I already have a Canon 580EX II already which I use primary as a main flash.  I'm trying to get into off-camera flash and also multi-flash.  I also brought the YN-622c to start with, this way I can already do 1 light off camera.  So, even if I buy the YN-568EX II, it will be use mainly as slave.  I read that YN-500EX has guide number 53 which the YN-568EX II has 58.  The true is, I have no idea exactly what that mean in the real world nor do I trust the claim.  So, how big is the different between YN-500EX vs YN-568EX II in the real world?  Obviously I pick these two because they support HSS which I may use very often.
