Someone from our office was selling his Yongnuo 460 II for P2,500, with rechargeable batteries and a charger. Knowing the fact that the YN 460 II is a good manual external flash, I nearly grabbed the offer. I said I have to test it with my camera first. I also asked if he can lower the price. He said yes to P2,300, and I said I will check; I made a little price research after that conversation. When I got home, I immediately checked the flash's compatibility with my camera, it worked very well with all the functions working smoothly and as expected. Before I went to sleep, I charged the batteries, when I woke up the charger is still lit on red, isn't it supposed to be on green? That was after 6 hours of sleep, nothing happened to the batteries. I figured that there is something wrong with either the charger or the batteries. Back at work, I talked to my officemate and asked if I can buy it for P1,500 because the batteries are not working, he said it's too low and offered me P2,000, I said P1,700, he offered P1,900, I said I have P1,800 right now. He said "sold". I handed him the money and returned the batteries and charger. I now have the YN 460 II for a dirt cheap price and just 3 months used. I had a great bargain!
The price I bought the external flash was great, with the coming expenses of spending for additional equipment like:
1.) Light stand
2.) Flash diffuser
4.) Soft box
8.) Remote Trigger
9.) Extra rechargeable batteries
All of those for the art of photography.
