More important, find the user Cliveyboy and download the user guide he has researched and written.

It will be very useful.

There are other options but none that are better, especially for the investment.

It depends on what you consider reasonably priced, I would agree none are better than the YN-622C for the minimum price :-)

I put a guide to the TTL radio triggers up here if that may be of help -

Yes. I am reading that thread about YN622 as the other poster suggested.
Seems to be the one to go for...

Thank you both of you..

Well if I had a 5DIII I would spend a little extra on a nicer trigger like the Phottix Odin too :-)

The YN-622C won't control manual power levels on the 430ex, and they don't mix ETTL and manaul. They are great for the price, but there are nicer options available if you can spend a bit more.

Thanks. But for that kind of money ($300+), wouldn't ST-E3-RT makes more sense?

Edit : Yeah. I know. It wouldn't work even with 580EX II...

The 622cs work just fine with my 580EXII and my YN568EXs. They are spectacular triggers (regardless of the price).

The YN-622C are brilliant triggers, but they are still made to a price. I'd still have a lot more confidence in the Odin for something more critical, not to mention the much better interface for manual power use.

Some people have been happy to use the 622 for weddings etc, others moved on fairly quickly. If you're confident to deal with any issue quickly is probably no problem either way, but many people are not that technically minded, they just want things to work without having to worry about that.

Yip, the Phottix Odin is a more complete product and considerably better engineered.
I've yet to have a miss fire and being able to adjust everything from the camera quickly is fantastic.
Also a great way of impressing customers.
