Canon Rumor: New Canon SpeedLites Coming in 2013 (and new Yongnuo flashes too)

Canon SpeedLites

Two new Canon flashes rumored to be announced before end of 2013. One could be the replacement for the Canon Speedlite 430EXII, the other one a new flash for the EOS M system (source: CR)

Not a rumor but it fits well in this post. Yongnuo announced the YN510EX flash, compatible off camera only with Canon’s E-TTL flash systems. Yongnuo makes inexpensive yet effective flash systems for Canon DSLR (among other brands). The Yongnuo YN510EX could cost somewhat between $75 and $125 (source: lightingrumours via slrlounge).
