Excellent. Now if only Yongnuo would release a HSS-flash to go with those controllers.

PhotoGadget are out of stock, and now they report that "due to Typhoon Haikui brought downpours and flooding in east China including Shanghai after landing in Zhejiang Province, the orders shipped from Aug 6th to Aug 8th will be affected."

:cool: This is awesome! More options!!!

Love the on-camera flash pass through feature :cool: HSS & ratios without having to install a specific firmware for my 60D! Only $110 a set. I'm quivering from pulling the trigger :lol:

The YN-622C does not provide a "pass-through" connection for an on-camera-transmitter flash, in the sense that the flash cannot independently communicate with the camera. The shoe is simply another YN-controlled remote.

The on-camera-transmitter can have a flash mounted, as a Group A unit, and can be controlled in Remote mode or Mixed mode. Mixed mode provides for many configurations, such as two manual flashes augmenting ambient, and one on-camera using ETTL as fill. This will be popular for weddingss, and indoor sports.

When I looked at the eBay listing yesterday, it showed "25 sold", but that may include forward orders.

A more significant problem is that some-one reported that the second batch will include a number of firmware fixes. EDIT - This apparently is incorrect, and the original posting seems to have been withdrawn. See lianggc's post below.

So, that'd be the old "Built-in obsolescence" then. I bet the next version [which we'll have to buy all over again vmad] will have USB support. Or can they pull the obsolescence trick twice in a row? No, they wouldn't! Would they?

"We get it right, so do not need USB" also makes no allowance for new camera models with enhanced/amended/new requirements. Bit short-sighted, isn't it? Or is it intentional after all?

PS I wouldn't exactly describe "25" as a batch - that's more like a trial run.

We haven't upgraded YN-622C firmware since it's released.

Thank you for the correction, and my apologies for retelling the rumour.

We are all looking forward to some real reviews to replace conjecture and regurgitation of manufacturer's publications.

They will not improve the firmware after such a short period of time. And a batch is just the production of a day or week or so. Yongnuo is not Foxconn, throwing out millions of iPhones. An USB update would be a nice feature, I agree, but on the other hand it costs money. Yongnuo's products have always been quite compatible, so that there will probably no need to update it at all. Pixels King triggers have the update function and really needed it because of a lot of compatibility issues in the beginning.

So am I out of luck using on a 1d II and 430ex or will it work only as a full manual trigger?

1D II does not have the full Flash Control menus, and the 430EX cannot be controlled by cameras that do have the menus.

Not yet verified, but I expect that ETTL II + FEC, FEB and FEL will work, as will 1st, 2nd and HSS sync. Also, simple triggering of flashes using on-flash settings.

The YN-622C is designed primarily to provide a radio interface between camera flash control menus (2005 on) and Menu-controllable flashes.

:cool: Thanks for that clarification. Now it makes sense why the manual says:

If you have a flash on top of your on-camera YN-622C unit, select Master flash > Enable if you want it to fire, otherwise it won’t. It will behave like an off-camera flash in group A.
