Hong Kong: After a few months delay, Yongnuo Photographic Equipment’s powerzoom speedlight, the YN-467, has been released in the Nikon version on eBay. The flashgun includes all of the features of the previously-released Canon version but with compatibility for Nikon iTTL cameras (D2H and newer). The current price is $94.99 from the official Yongnuo store.
It is rumoured that the delay between the Canon and Nikon versions of the YN-467 was due to technical hurdles with the automatic zoom feature. With this release, the Nikon YN-468 may not be far away. The YN-467 is Yongnuo’s second iTTL flashgun, after the YN-465. It adds an automatic zoom head, flash exposure compensation (FEC), faster recycling and two slave modes (S1 and S2). The Nikon version of the YN-468, when released, will add an LCD, stroboscopic mode and more power settings. No YN-56X series TTL flash has yet been announced.
