I tried paging through the YN622 mega-thread. The sheer amount of posts completely overwhelmed me.
Recently lost my YN603 (no lock... bound to happen eventually) and am looking for replacements.
Just a simple question, would the YN622 work together with the YN603 tranceivers?

Really? They both share 2.4ghz. I was hoping to atleast the yn622 would communicate with the YN603 even as manual trigger.

Would like to avoid replacing the entire YN603s.

Nope, it won't work natively.

You can piggy back a 603 transmitter on a camera mounted 622 transmitter, but you will effectively be running two trigger systems at the same time and there will be no communication between them.

Bummer. Now I have to decide whether to replace the entire set of 603s with the 622s.
I wish the 603s have locking dials so I don't keep losing them.

O ring tap washers stacked above the hotshoe plate of the 602s and 603s provide a lot more friction when mounted and they don't fall off.

Like was said, I use my 603's mounted on top of the 622 and it fires my background manual flash. As long as I can do that I don't need them to actually communicate any other way. So have no fear about using them with the 622

Yes, the 603 will work with 622's... BUT only if you have a 603 in the hotshoe if the 622 on camera.
small hairband ties also help with making the foot snug on the 603 so it will stay put where you put it.

So you can go ahead and get 622's and still use the 603's, I've done that when I needed more flashes in a studio shoot (race car)

622's are awesome for pulling off Hyper Sync with the right strobes.


Godox/Flashpoint r2 system, plus some canon stuff.
