Nice shots, too bad you had to use an angle with houses in the background.

Nice shot. I might have taken the highlight off from the left of the groom.

The exif data in the image also preserves the 'Flash fired' field.

Btw, have you checked the copyright field on your 5dIII btmlinedan?

While waiting for his YN-622C got a question.
Yesterday, my friend tested Canon 7D, YN-622C & 2 x YN-560.
He could not manage groups from the transmitter. All flashes only worked together..
This is normal and he was wrong in the settings?

iituner, with canon cameras, you can only disable group c by selecting "firing group" to A:B. Group A/B is always fired no matter you select "ALL"/"A:B"/"A:B:C" or disable wireless func.

2nd curtain is supported when wireless func is disabled, so no group is disabled in this situation.

Thanks lianggc!

And if you use an adapter between the camera and the transmitter only with the central contact, the channels can be switched on the transmitter? :)
Like with Type C camera.

Like with Type C camera.

If you has such an adapter, you have 7 group combinations (a, b, c, a + b, a + c, a + c, a + b + c) available to select.

I have a Pixel TF-321 (old version) which has only the centre pin and the rail wired through. This was placed on the 50D, then a 622 mounted on it. I could select only A, B or C, as if it was in Receiver mode or mounted on the camera hot-shoe, also. Have I overlooked something?

[Test] + [GP Set] cycles through all 7.

(I used these adapters as "buffers" for 550EX in Manual on Pixel Kings.)

I tried retiring, but gave it up - it's a dead end

I think I missed :)
On cameras Canon with Pixel King in manual mode(wireless mode off), you can select channels directly on the transmitter button, so sorry that this feature is not implemented in the YN-622
This is a very handy feature to work with manual flash.

Instead of the adapter, you can disable pin 2 on the leg of the transmitter. Using the switch :)

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

This feature makes things complex. Hope we will have a better way in the future. :-)

Good catch, I'll make sure to change that when I get behind my camera next!
