We have some new release and pricing information on the Yongnuo YN-560 strobist flash. The official word is that it will be priced in the US$65-75 region and available Friday 4th June.

The official launch date is ‘Next Friday’. That’s when the stock shipments are embargoed until. Then dispatches will commence. I had understood that would be the end of this week, but it might be the end of the following week. But very soon… I can confirm that the YN560 will be on eBay for under US$70 shipped from China.
