I was lucky to have bought Pixel kings before the YN-622s, and I sold them, but kept the really nice zipper pouches they came with.

They have nice padding, hold three of the 622s, and have a belt loop if you need it.

How do you guys store yours to avoid damaging them. I am just curious if you use a dedicated pouch or bag.

Trying to solve this problem myself. I've managed to squeeze four of them into a "hard" GPS case: http://www.amazon.com/​gp/product/B004I5BUSO/ (external link)

I keep them stored in the bubble packing they came in. I have four of them stored in a "lens" compartment in my camera rolling case. Works for me.

So I got my second set of 622c's last week, and it is confirmed that they do the exact same thing as the first set. This tells me Yongnuo 622c's definitely have some sort of issue with the combination of a Canon 5DmkII and 580EXII, when you turn off the wireless and try using the FEL feature. I would appreciate if anyone else has the same setup (5dmkII and 580EXII) to test it with their system to make sure, but both my 622c sets were manufactured this year (2013) so they should have the newest firmware.
Of also interesting note: Once I put my 420EX into the mix (ex: 580EXII off camera left side, 420EX off camera right side) everything works fine.
Last thing I will try is borrowing my friend's 580EXII again then see if I can have two 580EXII's off camera and see if the FEL works properly or not.
If anyone else has any more ideas to try just for kicks let me know and I'll give them a shot.

As for what I store them in.. I keep them in the bubble wrap bags they came in, and then put them all into this hard case zipper bag I had laying around. I did however look into buying individual zipper bags for these and found this if you are interested: http://dx.com …xus-powershot-black-19429 (external link) Yes it is for a point and shoot camera but it has the perfect dimensions.
I also found $2-$3 Lowepro bags at my local dollarstore ( http://imgur.com/Bau3E​yw (external link) ) which would fit them perfectly as well (YMMV), but in the end I decided my bigger zipper bag could hold them all in one place.
For those that said to stack them, I personally don't think this is a good idea since if they do get knocked around a bit it is more likely one of the feet could break since they are engaged with a hotshoe.

Definitely a possibility. I'm very careful where they're placed in the bag. They usually sit between two speedlites in their soft cases.

Are these worth buying? I have a 5DMKIII and a 600EX that I would like to fire off camera. Do these really have TTL capability?

Yes! They implement the full set of E-TTL and E-TTL II capabilities, especially with cameras that have flash control menus.

Look at TOYUG in my signature. You will see what the 622Cs can do. (The latest version has just been uploaded, v3.14.)

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

If you have the RT version of the 600 and the funds to back it up, you would have more capability with multiple flashes using the 5D3, RTs, and ST-E3 together. The 622s will give you the functionality of Canon's optical control system (both off-camera manual and E-TTL) prior to the introduction of the radio 600s and fully menu compatible cameras.

You are right, of course, and I am out of date! The 600EX has extended capabilities that did not exist when the YN-622C was released.

hi there

i have an eos 550d & a nissin di622 mark 2 flash gun & looking to get a wireless trigger. the YN622C fits my budget but having contacted two sellers on amazon & ebay, im getting conflicting information with regards to whether they will all be compatiable

i dont mind setting everything in advance, all i want is to be able to put the receiver under the flash remotely, put the transmitter on the hotshoe of my camera & trigger the flash when i hit the shutter

can anyone confirm either way if this would work please - thanks

Sounds like if you are going to be doing everything Manual anyway, why spend the extra money on TTL transmitters? Just get regular manual triggers that do not send any TTL information but just trigger the flash as needed. They are usualy dirt cheap ($20 range) and i'm sure you should be able to find one that works with your gear.
