One set is good for one off camera flash. Is that correct?

Not quite. You can have one ETTL flash on the transmitter's hotshoe, and another on the receiver hotshoe. Then a third (ETTL flash, other hotshoe flash or studio strobe) can be connected to the receiver by a PC-sync cord, but as a simple-trigger flash. They can be 1st, 2nd curtain or pre-shutter (HSS continuous light, or Supersync flash burn).

so what do you think clive, you going to order a set?

I am certainly looking forward to playing with a set to confirm or reject the various published claims. Just to test the Mixed mode will take some time. The complete set of capabilities will take days to validate.

Then I will be able to determine whether the added/improved facilities over the Kings justifies a change - for me.

Sorry. Can't leave you discombobulated!

Your answer was correct but incomplete.

Yes, one pair of YN-622C - one, two or three flashes. One or two can be off-camera.

Edit: Even that may be incomplete - a flash may be run from the on-cam-YN's PC-sync, too, making it four flashes off one pair of YN-622C.

It is more like adding in another computer between the camera's cpu, and the flash's cpu, and the YN-622 computer controls the other two.

The Pixel King was the first in this category of triggers - triggers that interface with and implement Canon facilities. The Phottix Odin also interfaces, but substitutes its own control routines which enables it to do things that Canon has not implemented.

I like the Pixel/YN approach as it means that I can use Canon Wireless and the Pixel/YN controllers in precisely the same way - via Canon menus.

Almost any hotshoe flash can be used, but the range of capabilities depends on camera model and flash model.

So if I put a YN 468ii on one it will do OCF ETTl even though the flash itself does not do ocf ettl like the YN 565ex can? I'm using a T3i by the way.


T3i | 18-55mm kit | 50mm 1.8II | Metz 50 Af-1 | Canon 85mm 1.8 | Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 | Canon 55-250mm II | Canon 15-85mm

"the range of capabilities depends on camera model and flash model".

From the Manual -
"Compatible ETTL flash list (support wireless remote control through camera menu)
Canon 600EX(RT)/580EXII/430E​XII/320EX/270EXII
YongNuo YN565C/YN468C(II)/YN46​7C(II)/YN465C"

Other flashes can be used, but settings must be made on-flash. In all cases, if the flash does not have a particular facility, the controller cannot add it.

Looks like a few have bought them as this message appeared on the website and on E-bay. I will have to wait a week for new stock.


Important Message:

The first batch of YN-622 Canon has been sold out, please come back to order in a week or order now and we will ship as soon as we got the next batch! Thank you very much for your attention! This message will be removed when it is in stock again!

Puzzled. My eBay screen said US$25 for fast delivery over the standard free delivery.

You should expect to have a learning curve to pass through before launching into real time.

Thanks for letting us know. There may be other merchants receiving stock and about to list, ahead of ThePhotoGadget.

It was the option that was given. So I accepted it.

ePacket delivery from China: US $4.00
Estimated delivery: August 14 - August 20


So if it is their mistake then they will owe me some money.

I only expect to play with it at my sisters wedding, not master it :)
