Yongnuo YN560-III Speedlite Question

Posted May. 24th, 2015 by Daniel J. Cox

Hi–I just bought the Yongnuo YN560 III flash for my GH3. I’m a beginner with flash. How do I set my GH3 so that the flash fires when attached to the hotshot?

John, there is nothing you should have to do to make any flash fire from the GH3 hotshot. I’ve never used a Yongnuo flash, but there should be nothing special you have to do to make it fire. If it’s not firing, it may be due to the Program Mode you’re in. Have you tried to fire the camera and flash on Manual? I would try 125th of a second in manual mode to test it then move to another setting such as Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, or Program. Let me know if this works. Below is a nice YouTube video detailing how this flash works. This thing looks impressive and especially at the price it’s selling for.
