Default What is the difference here?

http://www.amazon.com/YN-560-Speedli...7241758&sr=8-1

http://www.amazon.com/560-Standard-H...7241758&sr=8-2

The first one says: "For cannon"

The second one says: "Standard hot-shoe."

Is there a difference? I would think the second one fits all hot-shoe mounts, but just wanted to be sure.

neither are ttl flashes as the yn 560 are not dedicated. All manual.

If you want a dedicated flash from yn, look at the 467 or 468, you will get ttl function.

My camera does not have ttl, its a Fujifilm HS10.

I meant those two links, how are those two flashes different? They seem the same, just a different price and title.

Oh, ok. I thought maybe the hotshoe was made for the canon especially. Not sure why there is a $6 price difference then...

advertising I guess. You know that they are all the same as they canon one said canon/nikon. They are different systems. All hotshoe are the same size. They are even cheaper on ebay with free shipping.

The newer ones come with a metal foot, while the older one had a weak plastic one.

Except the Sony/Minolta line autofocus cameras. It is different and a standard hotshoe won't fit at all.

Well is the price difference because one is the plastic and the other one is a metal hot-shoe?

How can I tell which one is metal?
