Hi Clivey, I guess I don't completely understand what you said, but seems like regular alkalines good for longer reliability in the triggers and NiMH would be more power in the flashes?

Sorry - I mis-typed. Here are the corrected figures:
YN-622C low-power threshhold = 2.2 volts.
Nominal NiMH - 1.2 volts, x2 = 2.4 volts.
You are on the way out before you start.

Only 0.2 of a volt to start with, compared to 0.8.

NiMH can deliver to the flash the current needed to get a fast recharge.

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

Alex,

Take 2 602's. Connect one to the shutter release cable socket, on the side of the camera, and let it hang there. Place the 622's as normal. Walk away.from the camera. Push halfway down on the button, on the 602 in your hand, to activate the.autofocus and wake everything up. Press the rest of the way to.take the picture. The 602 well wirelessly trigger the shutter and the 622 will trigger the flash. If I am understanding Clive correctly.

Thank you, that's just what I was hoping to hear and will solve the problem when needing to trigger the camera when actally away from it and having the speedlites and camera set up with the YN-622C's.

Much appreciated.

Yep, that's exactly what I do and what I was describing...

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

Hi, Malcolm.

You can! ("Shutter release", not "trigger", the camera) Just not with the 622 in the shutter release chain.

MedicinSC has it right.

602TX in hand ~> 602RX connected to camera shutter release port by appropriate cable. Let the 602RX hang from the camera tripod so that it is at least 9 inches from the top of the camera.

622 flash trigger on camera hotshoe ~> 2x (622 + flash). Keep the fourth 622 as a ready-to-swap backup when a battery fails.

Each to its own job. I use this configuration frequently to avoid camera shake in close-up photography.

Cheers again Clive, sorry I'm a bit slow on the uptake, but getting there with the help of all the 'brainboxes' on this thread. It really is a mine of information.

Ways of highlighting changes was tried with the Pixel King document, but it was unmanagable. Sorry for that.

Thanks CliveBoy -- that's a lot of work you put into this documentation. It makes a HUGE difference for those of us that are coming up to speed on wireless triggers with Canon.

Incredible work on this guide- best thing I've found on the web so far, and really helpful.

Just trying to clarify something for a newbie:

iituner wrote in post #15228875 (external link)
Yongnuo YN-560 C. should be excluded from the list

YN-560, YN-560II and YN-560EX flashes with full manual control.
They are not controlled by the camera's menu
They are, in addition, on the hot shoe, they will always be in sync for the 1st curtain.
With the PC port, you can sync it to 1st/2nd curtain and SuperSync at full power.

So the user guide still lists the 560 as permitting remote control via the camera menu and the 622s. I have a 568EX that's fantastic. I'm looking for a second flash (could be lower powered) that I can still control via the camera menu (5D3) and an addition 622 for A:B ratios. Can someone tell me what the least expensive reliable option here would be?

If you need full remote control of the flash, the
comparable in strength to the YN-568EX only YN-565EX (without HSS)
The most affordable YN-465,(without HSS) but it is much less powerful.

All flash YN with digital designation 560 and 460 is Full Manual flash. All settings are made directly on the flash.
From the menu of the camera, you can just disable sync with manual flash units that are in "Group C" if you choose A: B.
You can choose to sync: 1st, 2nd curtain and SuperSync
if you connect the flash to the manipulative PC port of the receiver with a cable.

This is all that is available from the camera for manual flashes.

Another quick question - apologies if this has been covered:

Canon 5d3 using a 622c on camera and a 622c on a 580 EX II off camera. Could the 580EXII then act as a commander to control other flashes through TTL optically, and would those other flashes be able to be set up via on camera menus if compatible with canon TTL?
