What should the future of speedlights be like?

What should the future of speedlights be like?Since the launch of the original Yongnuo YN460, it seems that off-camera orientated speedlights have been released around the clock. Now there are offerings from Yongnuo, LumoPro, MeiKe, Godox, Tumax and more. But what features in these flashes are a must-have, and which ones are real photographers not bothered about? We’re always interested to hear what our readers think, so now’s the opportunity to have your say.

  • Is it time for 3.5mm jacks to replace PC sync?
  • Do you want a flash with an umbrella hole and light stand socket built in?
  • Want a bare-bulb speedlight without having to DIY?
  • Never mind those knick-knacks – are you just on the lookout for more power?
