As a brief overview, these triggers will transmit an ETTL signal from your camera's hot shoe to a remotely mounted flash. This will allow automatic flash control of remote flashes. Anyone who shoots events and frequently changes camera settings, changes lenses, or subject angles, will greatly benefit from this. Instead of having to go back to your flashes and manually change the power settings, the flash does this automatically as if it were sitting atop your camera.
The big deal with these triggers is that the technology is now affordable - and it works well. Radiopoppers are an option, but they are either expensive (Px system) or notoriously unreliable (Jrx system). Pocketwizards are also an option, but are also pricey and have range/RF interference issues. This is very new, very advanced trigger technology and the kinks are still getting ironed out. I think Yongnuo might have finally cracked the code.
The users manual for these triggers is quite long (28 pages) and intimidating. Being automatic triggers, they have a myriad of options that most users are not going to be used to. It doesn't helps that the manual was written by a non-English speaker, but that's another issue.
After playing with these triggers for a while, here are the highlights for me.
- Seamless ETTL transmittal. Turn on the triggers, mount your flahses, set the channels, and start firing. If you don't want to learn all of the advanced features in the manual you don't have to. You can basically just turn the triggers on and they immediately work. Plain and Simple.
- Transceiver design. These units can function as both a transmitter and receiver. This is nice because you don't need two different units to perform two different jobs. 4 units can function as 4 receivers only, 4 transmitters only, or any combination in between.
- Mount your flash on top of the Trigger. No more unreliable cable connections to the flash (Radiopopper Jrx). This is a solid, robust design with a good, firm electrical connection. When the trigger is on-camera it will allow pass-through ETTL to the flash sitting on top of your camera. This way you can use ETTL with an on-camera flash as well as ETTL with remote flashes as well.
- Robust design. From the first couple weeks of usage, I am cautiously optimistic about the build quality of these units. If you are carrying an on-camera flash on top of these triggers, then the flash acts a large moment arm on the trigger. This has been known to fracture the base of the trigger - rendering it almost useless. Any slop in the bottom or top mounting connections only amplifies this stress, increasing the chance of failure. So far these triggers seem very solid and there is no slop at all. I am confident in the build quality, though I would still be careful with them when using them on-camera.
- Built-in IR focus assist. When you aren't using a speedlite on-camera, these units can use their built in infrared assist beam to help with focusing in low light. This is a huge benefit for dimly lit environments. This feature is unique and to be honest I haven't seen it on any other trigger design like this.
- Group Settings. With the groups you can lock in the ratio of firing power to specified ratios. This can be done in-camera for recent cameras which allow remote speedlite adjustment through the camera's menu (5DII and newer, generally).
- Complication. 28 page long user manual for a set of flash triggers should tell you something. My strong recommendation would be to read the manual carefully and test the triggers out at home before taking these to a paid job. Odds are you are NOT going to be able to figure these things out in the 5 minutes before your photo session.
- Menu driven controls. These triggers have a LOT of different options and functions, but relatively few buttons. This means that to access many of it's features, you are going to have the use the camera's built-in flash control menu. It's one of the drawbacks of having such advanced triggers, but a worthwhile tradeoff for many people. Count on a little more involved setup procedure for these triggers relative to the earlier models.
- Because of the transceiver design, you will need to buy some sort of mounting shoe for remote flash units. There is no 1/4-20 thread on the bottom of these units like there is with other "receiver only" designs. The little plastic feet that come with most flashes generally have a thread mount on the bottom, so for now I am using these.
- You need newer cameras and flashes to take advantage of all of the features these triggers have to offer. You can use them with older equipment, though many of the features are lost. Check the compatibility list for more details.
In summary, these are well-sorted, advanced ETTL flash triggers for a very attractive price. Yongnuo seems to have learned from the mistakes of other companies here and produced a trigger with no glaring flaws. The fact that they did all of this and kept the price as low as they did is just amazing to me. I would highly recommend these for a flash power user. For a beginner or anyone with more basic needs, a simple manual trigger is probably a better option.
1. The manual that comes with the product is written in "Chinese English" and is difficult to understand upon first reading. There is an excellent alternative manual written by Clive D. Bolton entitled: "The Other YN-622C User Guide" available via photography-on-the.net; I highly recommend reading this guide in parallel with the YN user manual.
2. YN claims a range of 100 meters or 300 feet. This is highly optimistic; a more realistic range is 30 meters or ~98 feet which is the same as that claimed by Canon for their new (and much more expensive) radio flash system.
3. It is important to recognize that the YN622 functioning as a receiver operates the attached Canon flash in its "native" (NOT SLAVE) mode. Thus, only those flash functions selectable on the flash's menu (or the camera's menu when the flash is directly attached to the camera's hotshoe) are available via the 622C system. For example, a 430EXII flash will function in multi-flash (e.g. stroboscopic) mode when optically slaved to a 580EXII master. Since the 622C receiver does NOT utilize the 430EXII slave function, multiflash on a 430EXII is not available even though you can select it on the camera menu with a 622C mounted and functioning as a transmitter.
4. The 622C installed on the camera and functioning as a transmitter includes an AF assist LED pattern emitter with a range of about 3 to 5 meters. This worked OK for me but note that the alignment of the mounting foot on the 622c units is not always perfectly in line with the lens. Of the four 622s I have, only one was physically aligned well enough to make this autofocus assist useable. Hence, the 4 star rating.
5. The 622C system adds Flash Exposure Bracketing (FEB) to all Canon compatible flashes. Thus, I was able to use FEB with my 430EXII and 270EXII flashes which do not have this feature. The 622C system also adds Second Curtain Synchronization when operated with the camera menu's wireless remote function OFF. However, in this case, no individual adjustment of any remote 622 receiver mounted flashes output is available, since the camera thinks that only a single flash is in use.
6. I highly recommend NOT using rechargable batteries with the 622s, use ordinary AA alkaline batteries instead. The transceivers use very little current (~35 milliamps in standby, with a transient maximum of ~100 milliamps from tests by others). They are sensitive to battery voltage and will automatically shutdown when the supply voltage drops to ~2.2 volts (or 1.1 volts per AA cell). Fully charged NIMH rechargables no-load voltage is about 1.2 volts per cell, while new alkaline AA cells supply 1.5 no-load volts per cell, giving a better margin to 622 shutdown. Lithium AA (e.g. Energizer Lithium Ultra) cells might also work with the 622s as they have the same no-load output voltage as alkaline AA cells and are long-lasting, but are also significantly more expensive than ordinary alkaline AAs.
All things considered, an excellent product for the price.
The only negatives so far is that the battery bay cover can be easily knocked out, which happened with me twice while removing the unit from the hot shoe. Also, both units i received had the hot shoe mount in a slight angle off center. I.e., when mounted on the camera, the transceiver points slightly to the left.
On a side note, for those of you who own a Canon 5D MK III, I finally found a use for the "disable flash" option when flash is mounted!
We all know that when flash is connected to this body, "Auto ISO" is automatically disabled. This also happens when you connect this transceiver. So in order to take advantage of the focus assistance light that comes in the transceiver, and enable the "Auto ISO", you have to choose "disable flash" on the first menu from the left.
I hope that makes sense.
