Yongnuo 622 Rules OK!

Hey Flashers,

Christmas has come early!

I have just received a set of brand spanking new Yongnuo 622 TTL radio triggers!!!!

And within 5 minutes of using them I can safely say that these triggers blow the Pixel Kings out of the water!!!!!!

Lets get one thing straight, Pixel Kings are good triggers (if you have Canon MKII flashes)
……but the Yongnuos are better and cheaper!

Finally I have full TTL, HSS, FEC and FEL and A+B+C ratio control of my 550EX flashes.

Below are a few shots using three 550ex flashes in A+B ratio mode.

The main flash was mounted in a soft box, on a light stand and set to channel A

The other two 550ex flashes were used as rim lights. The were on separate light stands and set to group B.

Every thing was shot TTL using the flash control menus of my 5Dmk2 to set the ratio level.

Camera: 5dmk2 lens: Canon 28-70 2.8l at about f3.5

More info as soon as I have time……..

    Hi,
    Great images I’d have to say!
    I’m happy to hear that you love the YN622 , I got 3 units too and I like them a lot, I can’t imagine how I felt that the YN602 are just enough…
    I have a question, I can’t find a way to trigger my old 550EX with the YN622…
    I photograph with Canon 5DMKII too, so I don’t get it how you managed this `-)
    PLS , what am I missing here?
    Moshe, Israel.

      Hi Moshe, I just put my 550exs on the 622 triggers and fire away! The flashes must have the wireless switch turned to the OFF position. The other thing I noticed is that due to the shape of the pins in the foot of the flash, it needs to be pushed on really hard for the foot to snap into place, otherwise the pins don’t align with the contacts and the flash wont fire properly.

    Richard, I presently have the Pixel Kings and they work ok, but can’t get them to work so i can adjust the manual settings from my EOS 7d. I’m considering getting the Yongnuo 622s. I have a Canon 580ex and a Yongnuo YN560-II. Will the Yongnuo work with both of those flashes to enable me to adjust them in manual from the EOS 7d?

    Thanks. Also, your photos are amazing. I’m really enjoying your abilities with flash.

      Hi Mark,

      thanks for the kind words!

      Have you seen the v3 firmware for the pixel kings? its available on their website http://www.pixelhk.com , it improves the Kings functionality but it won’t help you adjust manual power settings.

      The triggers (Kings or YN622) can transmit the manual power level signal but your flashes cannot understand the commands. The 580 was designed before Canon implemented the flash control menu in camera and the YN560 is just a manual flash in the sense that you have to push buttons on it to change power levels.

      If you want to make use of all the options on the camera’s flash menu you will need to buy the latest MKII flashes from Canon. The Kings may work with 3rd party flashes that support the MKII protocol but I can’t advise you on which ones as I don’t own any.

      In your case I would suggest investing in new flashes rather than switching to YN622.

      Good luck

      Richard

    Thanks for the post, I’m trying to get my head around some of this hyper-sync stuff and that led me to this post. Thanks for the info and I’ll keep trying to work it out.

    Cheers!
