Default Re: Yongnuo YN-622C Controller Trigger

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:
20120911-CDB-01083.jpg

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:

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 unless you have other problems at the mo.

I bought genuine Frios from the maker,
http://www.enlightphotopro.com/

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.

Question 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

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...

Oh, they are on sale now too --Link to their Facebook post with discount codes--

With no lighting equipment experience at all, I would like to know if I buy this http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...light_and.html

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.
