Hi All,
I want to know, if I can trigger my Nissin 866Di Mk2 off-camera with Yongnuo 622C?
Since Yongnuo 622C has ETTL and HSS and also Nissin 866Di Mk2 is having HSS enabled in TTL mode, I want to trigger this flash off-camera at 1/4000 or 1/8000. Please let me know how to achieve this? Thank you in advance


Cheers

Hello,
I got information on this, want to share it for the users. I tested by getting a new pair of 622C Yongnuo E-TTL triggers. It works fine, I am able to trigger Nissin Di866 Mark II with Yongnuo 622C. I placed one transreciever on top of my camera(Canon 60D) hot-shoe and another transreciever to Nissin flash.

Nissin Flash settings : TTL mode; HSS (high-sync speed) enabled; FEC (Flash Exposure Compensation) set to 0;
Camera settings: External mode settings -> ETTL-II mode; Manual mode; shutter speed at 1/4000; f2.8
Flash fired seamlessly :-)

I will post in this same threads some of the pics I will be taking / taken already with these settings

Share your thoughts too on this.

Cheers

Can you set flash power remotely during shoot in HSS?

The Nissin Di866 II is a class 1 flash with the YN622C and YN622C II. That means it works fully with appropriate cameras.

I tried retiring, but gave it up - it's a dead end
