can i use the one receiving 622c to fire 3 or 4 flashes that are together ?

(without needing one per flash?)

In ttl, no.

Each would need their own 622.

If you're happy without ttl and without remote control of power, then you would need an optical slave for each extra flash, either in-built to the flash or as an external add-on under each hotshoe.

I regularly trigger 2 Metz 45s from a single receiver (either Pixel King or Yongnuo 622C, depending solely on which bag I pick up first - no other reason). Obviously, these are used totally manually with all adjustment on the flash units. However, there's no reason why you couldn't string more units together by the same method.

please log in to view hosted photos in full size.

(Cables removed for clarity, the pic was originally for another purpose)

One unit as receiver, with a Pixel TF-321 adapter on top. One flash is plugged into the TF-321 socket and one into the PC socket on the side of the Rx unit. Both are then triggered reliably. All you'd need to do is add extra TF-321s in a stack on top of the Rx unit and couple up with cables.

Obviously, there's going to be a finite limit to the number of times you can do this but your 3 or 4 should pose no problem. Be messy, with all the cables, but I'm sure it could be done.

Other odd bits over the decades, simply to get the job done - not merely to polish and brag about cos I'm too mean to buy the polish!

Only other problem is they are for a lastolite Ezybox ii octagon. And the bracket that goes on the back is quiet small in the way it holds the flashes.

I'll try to get a photo

Same principle as previously, vastly more expensive solution. There are much cheaper versions of the same thing and it's only a simple circuit after all.

Go on then - make life flippin' awkward! You need a bigger 'ole to get all the heads in action.

Looks like a lot of rebranded cheap end Yongnuo stuff, tbh.

update:

the ezbybox octa comes with the cables to plus all the flashes in to one receiver :)

and the bracket will hold two flashes both with receivers if i want, to allow ETTL
