triggers should be delivered today. I'll bust em out and see how they work tonight, POSSIBLY a video if I can find some help!

Can't wait for the video! tell us how well they do/don't work, and what you are using them with!

I think using these with my flashes that can do HSS/ettl along with my RF-603 for the rest manual will be the ticket!

I have a 580ex II, a few 580ex's, 560's, and a 565EX.

my guess is...

580exII will do ETTL, manual control from camera, HSS
580ex will do ETTL, HSS, no manual control
565ex will do ETTL, manual control from camera, no HSS
560 will do just 'dumb' triggering.

this is how the pixels worked, except no passthrough and no ratios.

I would be thankful if somebody testing out the 622's facility about external battery pack C.Fn. 12 (power source) on 580EX II. On Kings that is enforced automatically to "external power source only" despite the previous manual setting "both power sources".

Just have a look at the strength of the items when a flash is hanging on them.

The kings are notoriously weak.

Would be great if you could test for second-curtain sync as well, please!

Turns out a gripped 7D + 622 + 580exII + 70-200 2.8 IS MK2 is BLOODY HEAVY! Who knew?!!

^What he said. Just overall quality of the units. I'm worried a little about having the transceiver in between the camera body and my 580EX II. Will it hold up while shooting at an event like a wedding. Or is it only for studio type work? Thanks :cool:

If someone posts a video review make sure to leave links to you sites, because it will get serious views. These things have to be some of the most anticipated products for strobists over the last year. I joined this forum just to get in on the action of the 622's?

@Talbot ; i'm not too familiar with 2nd curtain sync, but I can try it out as well. I'm apologizing in advance for my lack of video skills, but i'll do my best. Just don't expect some professional video :)

No worries - it's not about the quality of the production, it's the hands on reports and info..! :cool:

Quality, ease of use with the buttons on the trigger itself, and limitations with MK1 series flashes if possible.

I'm mostly worried about build quality. Really interested in picking up some ETTL triggers and these would be awesome since I use Yongnuo flashes.
