Anyone use these with a 430EX ii and a 6d? I'm trying to understand how to control the flash power from the camera when my flash is off camera. Flash exposure compensation?

Edit: fec seems to be the answer.

I have the same set up. Go into your external flash settings in the menu. You can control everything ettl or manual settings from there. I have reported here before that my ettl with the 6D and 430exII is constantly under exposed by about 1 1/3 stops. Let me know how yours works out.

My issue is the common issue that others probably experienced...didn't insert the receiver all the way in. The second time I tried it and made sure it went all the way in....perfecto! FEC works like a charm. Made a shortcut for it in my menu.

Yes, if you mean
5DIII + 622C + 600EX ~> 622C + SB28
1DIII + 622C + 600EX ~> 622C + SB28

The on-top flash can have its main flash turned off in-camera, but it will still emit a pre-flash for E-TTL. It may be easier to power down the 600EX.

There is a problem - see page 10, bottom para in TOYUG - link in my signature.


Thanks Clive. I also read from flickr group that one user keeps having issue with 2 cameras (camera 1 keeps firing the flash mounted on camera2 and vice versa).

For now I may not be using these triggers to their full potential as they are pretty much dumb triggers for me - much like the pocket wizard.

I'm having an issue with one of my 622C's. I don't remember when I got it exactly, but the manufacture date is 10/2012. I have a total of four (one more from that date and two more from 01/2013). As of right now, it will not trigger a flash, neither as a receiver nor a transmitter. If a flash is mounted, pushing test will not fire the flash. However, if the flash is on it, and turned on, the flash will fire when you turn the transceiver on, so some pathway or another is still working. I have factory reset it (holding group and channel button until the light flashes red/green) and I have tried three sets of new batteries. I have tried it as a transmitter on a different camera, and as a receiver with a different flash. I have even tried it as a receiver with each of the other units transmitting. It will not fire a flash.

I figure it must have a dead radio. But, before I bin it, I wanted to see if anyone here had any ideas, or have had this happen and know of a DIY repair that I might try. Thanks!

Try different channel?

Side note: I accidentally press on the lens in your sig, my phone dials out as a phone number :)

I did try different channels, as well. No luck. Thank you for the suggestion, though.

Everytime I press the shutter button halfway the triggers flash (the channel, group light both flash while the ready light turns green). Is this normal?

You may benefit from reading "The Other YN-622C User Guide", so that you understand the equipment, including the answer to your question. See link in my signature.

Personally I wouldn't care if the channel and group indicators blinked out the Gettysburg Address in Morse Code as long as the flash fires when it's supposed to.

Yes, that's all normal. And definitely curl up with Clive's user's guide. It's a lot to digest, but once you spend some hands-on time with the guide and triggers it all makes sense.

Yes. Current set-up is the YN622 and a single YN-568EX. Works flawlessly through my 60D's in-camera flash settings.

I have 2 pairs of triggers and I wonder if the following setup is possible:

Two cameras: camera 1 has a flash on, camera 2 doesn't
One off camera flash

Press camera 1, both on and off camera fires -> ok
Press camera 2, only off the camera flash fires (flash on camera 1 do not fire) -> is this possible?
