Yongnuo has announced a new flash for the Canon RT system. The Yongnuo Speedlite YN686EX-RT is equipped with a 2.5GHz transceiver which is compatible with Canon’s ST-E3-RT, 600EX-RT II, 430EX III-RT and some other Yongnuo flashes.
One of the nicest features of this new Yongnuo flash is that it’s powered by a 2000 mAh lithium-ion battery which is good for 750 full blasts of light on one charge. They claim the recycle time is also faster than using AA batteries.
All-in-all, it’s a pretty compelling package for $165.
