You'd have to look for a Nikon SB400 (no longer in production). Nice and small, but only turns up and straight.

Hi Guys,


Anybody tried using Yongnuo YN685 or Yongnuo YN-568EX  flash on their Nikon D500? Im thinking to buy one just on its own so I can mound Directly on to the camera. Unfortunately models listed on ebay do not have D500 support in description. Please any comments?

If the Yongnuo flash model you have supports it, the sf-18 battery pack is supposed to double the number of flashes and 1/2 the recycle time but can cause the flash to overheat if fired too many times rapidly in a row.



Locked out of forums and can't get back in.Siobhan sent me email that they are no longer doing anything with the forums site and to use the FB group instead.

Oh woe
