Just get what your budget can afford -
I have the basic yn460 which is manual - easy to use -
highly recommended.
Good radio flash triggers too .

I have the young up 560 II and III absolutely love them. Both are fully manual so no TTL.
For a little extra the 560 III has a receiver built in which makes life easier.
They are solid for the price and I recommend them.
As said the yongnuo triggers and receivers are great as well

I use them as well for lighting full length figures, I was amazed at the light output, and there's lots of stuff, reflectors, snoots etc that you can make yourself. Great items you won't waste your money Smile

I have a 60D which I believe uses the same triggering system. The camera uses the inboard flash to send a signal to the slave unit which has the ttl settings. Typically the output of the onboard is so low it doesn't contribute to the overall exposure

I have just got the YN560-11 and couldnt get my Sony to talk to it so I got the IR studio trigger I use in the studio and with the flash set in S1 it works well every time Smile
Hope this helps Smile

Further to the above I have a YN460-11 and the YN560-11 I wanted to set these up but as the 560 has a sony mount I couldn't get it to work using the RF-602-RF as the hot shoe is not Sony and I can't get one with this fit so I tried setting up the 460 on the receiver and the wireless controller via an adaptor on the camera and both flashes work perfectly, just thought this might be of help. if you have the Yongnuo wireless receivers and controller you can get the canon to work no probes Smile

Having just recently moved and sold up the studio gear I have found I have 4 x RF-602 units spare and 3 x wireless controllers spare all working perfectly if any of these will be of use make me an offer Smile

one of my trainees has a sony system and struggled with triggers, sending about 3-4 sets back till she found one that worked.

I did jokingly tell her to send the Sony back and get a canon/nikon - glad she has a sense of humour Wink

Are the 602's for sony Charlotte?

May have use for a Nikon ones - could be handy for workshops when nikonians turn up... and what are the "3 wireless controllers" ?

Cheers
