Re: Yongnuo YN-560 III has built in receiver

So, why are these guys like 85 USD, compared to ~500 USD for a 580EX II?

Ok, no HSS.  But do they work more or less the same?  I guess they can't be a Master either, correct?  But, do they work using E-TTL, just like a Canon would?  Can they be controlled from the camera (60D in my case) the way the EX IIs can?  Or only from the flash itself?

With the built-in receiver, would I just need to buy an RF-602 or 3 (or is there something else because I no longer need the receiver portion?) to trigger it remotely?

What else is there to consider when looking at the 6x price difference?  Even if build quality is not as good, you could buy and replace the YN a couple times and still come out ahead.
