The unit performed flawlessly in all the above-mentioned areas. For example, the photo below shows my YN-568EX firing in optical slave mode, using ETTL metering, HSS and 8:1 ratio set via the camera menu. Fantastic! To obtain the photo below I mounted my 580EX ii master inside an Apollo Orb softbox at camera right.
I have the 580EX II and YN-568EX also. How did you connect your camera to the 580EX II which is off-camera in Apollo?
ahh -- good catch. I used Syl Arena's ETTL extension cord from OCF gear. Both camera and flash think the flash is mounted atop the camera. ETTL works beautifully
my order for two additional 568EXs just arrived; that took about 9 days. two 568's and the 580 go in the softox, one 568EX outside for rim or other fun.
