WOW..YN622C cheaper at almost $300?? I got my yongnuo for $95 used..Putting it in backwards would be an option but then the flash body is facing directly backwards, not toward the camera to catch the signal..I got the IR because it is cheaper and I want to do Ettl wireless. I was shooting straight on flash with hotshoe on stand and that way I could pivot the flash body toward the camera with no problem. But I need softer light at times so using an umbrella is my next thing to use but to keep the ETTL wireless I need to keep the flash body toward the camera. I have radio wireless triggers but don't like shooting in manual, I prefer control
Have you checked out the Phottix Odins yet? I recently got some and I can't believe how much control you get with them, I can even adjust the zoom on each group of the flash heads individually from the transmitter. It's so simple I haven't even RTFM yet.

Ok..I found 2 of them on ebay for $100.00 and that looks like what I need. question..des the flash on the stand have to be set to "slave" to work?
Lol, eBay is the only place I've seen them being sold(guess I didn't look very hard). As for the slave bit I just throw my heads on the Odin receivers like I would throw any of them on my camera using regular on camera flash. Sorry, I'm not familiar with how the Yongnuos work.
