I wanted to confirm that I have used the 622Cs with Eneloop XX batteries, and they have fired now for around 700 shots (all of them with flashes, mostly ETTL) spanning 6 days (and with the eneloop pre-charge from factory) without requiring recharge.

I'm going to recharge the batteries just in case, just so I don't need to change them in the middle of a session tomorrow, but the battery response is very good, IMHO.

Maybe someone can confirm how much time / pictures spanned from full charge to depletion so I don't charge my batteries ahead of time. Thanks,

Rafa.

Based on those measurements from our Italian Ambassador, it's more the time they are on rather than how many shots. Based on his numbers, my estimate for 2000mAh rechargeable (as well as standard battery) is around 50 hours.

Of course, any sane person will take (max) half of that, and recharge the batteries after 25h as you don't want them to die on you.

Thanks for the info. These are 2500mAh, and I always carry a spare set with me, so recharging too soon would be detrimental to the batteries (which only have around 500 charges in them), but, of course, changing in the middle of a shoot is tiresome, specially for the people being photographed, so... not sure, with your estimates, they have been on around 13 hours or so tops.

I might recharge now, and then let them live until they are depleted and measure their duration. Thanks again,
Rafa.

Received my two sets today (to replace my 603's), to be used with a couple of Jessops 360AFDC's.

The camera (7D) talks to the flashes, in that it sets the zoom, ISO, f and power as it would if it sat directly on the hot shoe. Through the 622's, new menus have appeared on the camera.

A quick look at CliveyBoy's other manual has determined that I can use this flash as ETTL or Manual through the 622's and can use 2nd curtain, as well as FEB and A:B ratios.

Feel free to add the Jessops 360AFDC to the compatibility list - is there a set of test I would need to try ?

Lawrence - thanks for the info. IF you can observe each camera menu setting (as shown above) being effective in your test images, including HSS, then the Jessop 360AFDC can be called "fully compatible" (Class 1 with HSS), even if it does not handle a non-menu item such as, say, the modelling light. (A note of any observed exceptions would be helpful.)

You should get the low-battery indication on the status LED when the pair drops to 2.2 volts. If you continue using them, the unit should shut down. This is to protect against battery deterioration due to over-depletion.

The warning can appear due to only one battery failing. (e.g. 1.20v and 0.95v)

Got my second set of YN-622's today. The metal foot is not mounted straight on the units. I checked my first set and they are off too.
Of the four units I picket the straightest of them and market it for transmitter use in the camera hotshoe. The AF beam shows up in the center of the viewfinder, so the transmitter unit is fine. For the receivers it is not a major problem as they will be mounted on brackets that can be rotated, but it is a bit annoying.

Anyone else experienced this? Is it fixable by opening them and realign the foot or is everything glued together?

I just received my first set of these and checked them out. The foot is a little cockeyed on both of them as well. Hopefully I'll have a straighter one when my 2nd set gets here next week.

My first set of 622s work great with the 6D! All shots (except the cell phone shot of the back of the camera) converted straight from RAW to jpeg and resized with no other post work done.

That made me laugh a lot :D
Anyway, I'm happy that my contribution is useful to other photographers ;)

Can anyone confirm how these work with the Canon 270EX II?

Clive's guide lists the 270EX as a class 3 flash but does not list the II version.

Hi guys, received my triggers and first chance to use them today. I'm recent to flash/indoor portrait photography so I'm reading up lots and hoping to put them to good use. Thought I'd try the wireless TTL capability and had no troubles at all. The pic attached was a 2 external flash setup in my dining room against a plain wall with a reflector just in front and below. I made a couple of basic-level ACR tweaks and cropped the image - haven't messed with trying to whiten the background or other clean up work.

I want to thank people contributing to this thread, some great discussion about batteries and thanks Clive for the Other Manual. What a valuable resource of information that is as the supplied manual is certainly difficult to understand.

One thing I would like to adjust is AF assist beam. I haven't tried all units on top of the cam yet but the two I have tried the AF assist is too high, nowhere near many of my AF points (and worse in portrait mode if I ever need to AF select a point to the right of the view finder). So that's my main problem; I'm going to need to adjust it somehow (one post mentioned that it can be adjusted internally? If so how please?)

Hoping to try 2nd curtain tomorrow.

Carnidal sin, sorry, just realised that was my first post so definitely a big Hi to everyone.

Above pic settings were f4, 1/125, ISO 100.

I just received four of the 622 controllers and have tested them with a 5DMKIII and 580EXII, 430EXII and 270EXII flashes. They work great and seem to be well made. I highly recommend downloading Clive Bolton's excellent alternative user guide as the Yongnuo user guide is written in "Chinese English" and is somewhat difficult to understand.

It is important to recognize, however that, with the exception of Flash Exposure Bracketing (FEB), only those functions available in the flash's "native" (e.g. not optical slave) mode are available with the 622. For example, the 430EXII can function as a stroboscopic optical slave to a 580EXII optical master. However, since the stroboscopic (e.g. multi-flash) function is not available from the 430EXII menu, it is not available with the 430EXII is used with a 622 receiver.

In summary, an excellent product at a great price, especially when compared with Canon's radio control solution.
