I just received these yesterday. Have no clue what to do and how to use this setup. First off, do I need the flash triggers with only one flash? All the pictures show two flashes in the manual. I'm not gettin any second flash any time soon. I'm looking to take pictures I my daughter with off camera flash and not sure what to do. It looks like the triggers were a waste to buy? Any info on how to start using the flash?

I have no problem keeping the triggers if hey are necessary, but are they necessary for taking photos of kids indoors off camera? I don't use them in studio. Thanks for the links.

IMO, they are not needed indoors for most shots.

I use my popup flash on my 60D to wirelessly control my YN-565 off camera. Works great. However, if I was going to use OCF outside, I would get/use the 622c.

Stupid question. The 430ex II works great with the built in flash commander. Just tested out the yongnuo units and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. They are communicating and the off camera flash is firing. But all my pictures are way overexposed. It seems as though the pop up is firing while down. Does this need to be disabled?

Your 430exII is probably firing at full power. Go into your flash control menu in your camera and turn down the power to 1/2 or 1/4.

The pop up is firing in the closed position. Does the pop up need I be up? Can it be disabled? This is what is causing. The overexposure.

If you have a 622 in the hot shoe, I'm not sure that the pop up flash can be up.

Look in the flash control menu to see about disabling "internal flash".
