For photographers on a budget, Yongnuo’s 460 model is was a great choice. The YN-460 offers everything that you need for manual operation in a package of acceptable (some say ‘very good’) quality at a bargain price.
In addition, it’s rather small size, almost exactly the same as the SB-600 from Nikon. Manual power goes down to 1/64, too. Triggering is no problem via the single pin on the flash foot. And there is no trouble with standby. What you don’t get is a zoom feature on the flash head, and there is no PC port either, but the fans of the 460 can easily live with the limitations.
