MarcMedios: I can't imagine paying almost $1,300 for a camera with a rinky dinky fixed lens where a mere 70-something mm is an F 5.6. That's downright awful

@Peter Bendheim - I don't own kit lenses for the same reason. I can't stand the thought of having a mediocre, say, 55 mm with a maximum aperture of 5.6; Ever since my first DSLR (an ancient XT or XS or something like that) I buy the body and then the lens I want. I am not a huge fan of primes, though I have a 50 1.4, 24 2.8 and had a 28 2.8 that I gave to my sister in law. I shoot concerts so my go to lenses are 24-105 f4 and 17-40 f4. I find the entire kit lens mania of being 3.5 to 5.6 and mainly 5.6 to be unacceptable, yes.

Pejannl: Nice review. Close, but no cigar, though. Yes, Godox sells an external battery pack PB960, but.... erhm.... The Ving 860ii does not have a connector for an external battery pack...

To me, this was the one and only disappointment after I bought it, because the flash, and its internal Li-Ion power, is just excellent. Since I have these, I use them exclusively at weddings. I combine the flashes with Magmod clones (from Selens) which all-in-all gives you an affordable studio environment on the go.

F * * K If you think that Pejanni shooting 3,000 images in an entire day is too much, I guess my shooting 1,500 in a heavy metal concer (5-6 hours) is brutally bad???? LOL>

I just got mine and I bought it with the big commander unit, not the small one.

1. Yes. It is a pain. However, for Canon at least, just go into your flash menu, easy piesy, the camera controls everything and the unit works like a charm.

2. The focusing IR beam on the commander unit is EXCELLENT. It works really well.

3. The flash is very powerful for day to day use.

I couldn't be happier.

MarcMedios: Screen grab, ctrl right click

Absolutely. But I don't steal images for commercial use. Every so often I might see a picture I like for an internal powerpoint, the screen resolution is more than enough, though. So I don't have a problem with it.

There are dozens (I have a go-to list of 10) of places where you can get really great pictures royalty-free (www.unsplash.com is one).

Thanks all

MarcMedios: Honestly, 99% of the feedback in professional forums is negative. Yongnuo is one of those brands that people buy because they are dirt cheap; they are considered flimsy, unreliable, prone to constant failures.

scotthunter: Not a single mention of using a tripod to compensate for the aperture limitations of the lens, even though the conclusion of the review states that the camera is good for landscapes. Put it on a tripod, lower the shutter speed to let some more light in, increase the ISO as required, and this camera is capable of better images than the G7X II or RX100V due to the significantly larger sensor providing better dynamic range and increased resolution.

The camera is totally useless for photographing concerts, for example. Who carries a tripod to a concer? Totally useless for photographing street. Totally useless for photographing real travel

Perfect street camera when coupled with my 24 mm f 2.8; non intimidating, non threatening, compact, and performs well
