You will need 3 YN622C's One to be on camera, 1 for each 430EXII. You then can either optical slave the AB or put a YN622C on it via sync port. Note though if you have the flashes on ttl mode the AB800 will trigger optically on the pre flash so it will not work you could only use manual power only.

You cant trigger the AB if you are using the speedlites in the ETTL mode. The preflash will trip the AB's optical slave early. If your speedlites are in manual mode it will work. I was using a manual flash to trigger the bees in a quick studio setup once and the battery failed. After the battery change the on camera flash defaulted back to ETTL and it took a few minutes to regain my senses and understand why I was getting dark frames.

Thanks to both. I tend to use my speedlights on manual most of the time, so this might work for the time being as I venture further into flash.

And I'll be sure to watch for my speedlights resetting, I feel your pain on that. Mine did that a few weeks ago and it took me nearly an hour to figure it out.:oops:

Hi guys, I just got these triggers yesterday and they seem really reliable and good so far!

Sorry if this has been asked before... but...

My question is, I have a 580EX II and I'm thinking of buying a YN568EX. If I want to use both of them, will I be able to control them both from the camera?

I was reading up the past few posts and you can for sure with all Canon brand and all YN-TTL brand, but I just wanted to make sure you can with 1 Canon and 1 YN flash.

Thanks ahead for your help!

Yes. One trigger per flash unit and one on the camera as transmitter (ie 3 YN-622C units total) and away you jolly well go.

I have that combination and it works very well. Last week end I did some off camera main and on camera fill in mid afternoon bright sun. It worked very well for me. You're gonna love it.

I have a 6D, and using 2 YN-622 triggers with an off camera 580EX II and a 270EX II.

Accessing the menu via camera is a little intermittent. I am trying to set up an AB scenario, with the 580 on A and the 270 on B, adjusting the values.

After firing once, I can't access the menu for a while. I checked the batteries.... all good there.

Whats the proper way to set this up, any other 6D users that can chime in?

Thanks!

I assume you mean you have 3 YN-622 triggers? One on camera, one on each flash. Unless you have one flash on top of the trigger on the camera...

Yes, 3 triggers, 2 flashes

That indicates that you have porr contact between the camera and the 622C. Dry-wipe the contacts and the rails in both hot-shoe and hot-foot. Then when you reconnect, wind the lock ring fully back, press the 622C foot firmly forward, and lock the ring down. You should be able to just see the rear pins inside. They can make side contact and work intermittently if not fully seated.

This doesn't appear to be the problem. I cleaned the contacts, and I attached the flash directly to the camera, same problem.

I'd second Clive's comments - classic symptoms of poor contacts. I know you cleaned them, but did you clean the important bits?

General comments about cleaning (ie not saying anyone in particular hasn't done it properly!!). It's an unfortunate fact that our eyebrow tends to sit very neatly in the camera hotshoe when it's not otherwise occupied and this transfers all sorts of !Yuk! into the hotshoe. That and residual manufacturing muck can be sufficient to prevent a good contact - remember we are talking low voltage circuits here!

Here are the bits that 'cleaning' often misses.

Another point Clive raised concerns proper seating of flash or trigger. Many folks think of the retractable pin on a hotfoot as being a locking pin. It's not - or rather, that is a secondary function. These pins across all makes have a very light spring loading. Merely sliding the hotfoot into the hotshoe and tightening down is absolutely NO guarantee that the pin has sprung into the hole. Think of it rather as a LOCATING PIN. If you push the flash/trigger into the hotshoe and HALF wind the pin down - then try to pull the device out of the shoe. If it won't move, that indicates that the pin has accurately located and dropped into it's corresponding hole. Then you can screw down tight secure in the knowledge that the foot really is fully located and your contact pins are doing their job properly.

If neither of these solutions fix the problem for you, then it looks like you have a fault with the camera hotshoe. The last thing you can do is take a close look at the camera hotshoe. From camera back, under the left rail, is a tiny microswitch which tells the camera that there is something in the shoe. It has very occasionally been found that this switch is a tiny bit loose and not triggering properly. This would lead to intermittent work/no work of the external flash menu (and the flash or trigger).

If the first two solutions don't solve the problem, I reckon it's the dreaded "RTB" to get the camera fixed. It'd be handy, as a final check, to try your flashes and triggers on a different camera if you can. Perhaps in the shop where you bought it if that's even remotely possible?

Edit: Clarification re locating pins across all makes.

I've never used triggers. I understand I would need a 622c on my camera and a 622c on each of the flashes I desired to use.

For use with 430EX II's and 580EX's:

-Could I adjust the off-camera flash's power from my camera (flash in manual mode).
-Could I adjust the off-camera flash's power from my camera (flash in ETTL).
-Can a 622C be either a transmitter or a receiver (just flip or switch); or is the a distinct 622C Transmitter and 622C receiver?

Thanks,
