Has anyone had any problems mounting flashes with these in softboxes? I have a Cheetahstand SpeedPro bracket and QBox and since I have 430EXII flashes, I can't use the PC cord option.

No problems, but I did need to slightly modify my brackets. All my mounts were 1/4-20 screws. I bought some Frio coldshoes as adapters between the screws and the hot-shoe. They are brilliant - safe, slimline but add just over a half-inch thickness to the assembly. I would not use a clamp-type cold shoe, for safety reasons.

I use two 430EXIIs on 622 triggers in the parabolic softbox.

Thanks, Clive. I had to look those Frio coldshoes up. Small and cheap as chips. Hard to beat.

Here's the rig:


HOSTED PHOTO
please log in to view hosted photos in full size.


An L-bracket to lie flashes close to umbrella axis. Made double-duty by strap at back and a padded one underneath heads. Easy switch access on both 622 and 430. No need to see LCD displays - its all in the camera.

Frios allow access to 622 batttery compartment without dismounting.

I'll be trying out this bracket when I get my triggers and other flash, not sure if/how this would work with a softbox:

Yeah, you need to set the group combination using [TEST] + [GP SET].

Ah! The Test and the single-pin camera are doing essentially the same job, so the Test instructions also apply to the Type C camera. Clever.

Cheap as chips? Want some fish with your chips?

BTW, I wouldn't go to www.friocoldshoe.com (external link) unless you have other problems at the mo. ;)

I bought genuine Frios from the maker,

They turned up, a hemisphere away, in less than 48 hours. They supplied from this country's distributor. 3 for US$40.

What's wrong with the Frio coldshoes? I try to avoid buying things off eBay, too many crooks there. B&H has the Frio coldshoes, that's where I looked them up. Unless there is a problem with them, I'd rather spend an extra $5 or whatever and get them from a place I know and trust.

Nothing at all.

Some users of the frio prefer the fish design, as in the comments below, even though they are three times cheaper.

How many 622c's?

I just placed an order for a pair of the 622C's. Will I need another 622C to add a second OCF?

The setup will be 50D w/ 580EXII & YN-565EX.

Thanks for any info :cool:

Yes, There is 2 transivers in the box, so you would need another set to add a second OCF

Each of the transivers can act as a transmitter or a receiver, Think of it as you will now have the option to use the 4th unit for another flash, or a secondary transmitter...:)

With no lighting equipment experience at all, I would like to know if I buy this http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …ek_4_0_Monoligh​t_and.html (external link)

and the YN-622C's using a Canon 60D will this work? If so how would the YN-622C connect to the light? Would I need to order other equipment or wiring for this to be successful?

You would have to connect it using a pc sync cord. There is a pc port on the back of that light, so it would likely work with the 622's, just not in ETTL.
