I've been skimming through this thread and see a lot of talk about the hss working with yongnuo 622s but was wondering if anyone knows if hss works when triggered with the yongnuo yne3-rx receiver and yn-e3-rt transmitter combo?


my Yongnuo yne3-rx receiver works with my Canon ST-E3-RT..

That question is going to require clarification to get an accurate answer.
If you are asking if TTL HSS will work with the rovelight the answer is yes to the extent that it works in H mode.
The TTL speedlite(s) have their exposure set by a pre-flash. The rovelight does not participate in that event so its contribution to exposure will be additive if both the TTL speedlite and the rovelight are striking the same subject in a way that is visible to the camera.

I've done what you're alluding to with other lights in H mode. It takes some planning and a bit of testing to get the light the way one wants it.

Helen, I sent you an email about a significant problem unrelated to the remote issue. Hopefully you'll see this.

Did I reply? I can't ID you from your screen name!

Oops forgot to quote the post I was replying to.

When using this setup does hss play well. I have another strobe I use with my yne3-rx and Yn-e3-rt but high speed sync doesn't work but that strobe also doesn't have a hyper sync option so was trying to utilize canons high speed sync. But with the rovelight having hyper sync option was wondering/hoping this combo plays well for hyper sync

I just placed an order for this light and am pretty excited as this will be my first monolight coming from speedlights and LED lights (for video work).

Does anyone recommend a specific octabox for me? I shoot a little bit of everything: weddings, engagements, event photography, food and real estate.
I was looking at the Fotodiox EZ-Pro Octagon Softbox 48"

Has anyone used this with the Rovelight 600? Would that be the right mount?

I am looking for something of that size however don't want to spend that much money on it as I just bought a c-stand boom kit as well :/

No you need to get the bowens mount option with the bowens mount Rovelight.


BTW: I just got this exact same set up.

Nice! I linked it to the "bowens" mount but I noticed it just links to the Alien Bee option.

Is the fitment ok and everything? Should I order it? lol

I received my RL 600 :D
It's pretty cool how I can just mount the (transceiver that it came with) to a YN622 and I can fire. I thought I would have to hang something from the flash.

Problem is... I haven't been able to shoot a faster shutter speed than 1/200 sec. I have set it to HSS on the RL600 but I am not able to change my camera (5d3) ss to over 1/200 sec. Do I need this to hypersync?

or do I have to buy this one?

I don't understand why I would have to use a cable to be able to use hypersync mode when I can fire the RL600 regular without any cables.

I don't understand why either, but you do. Just go with it. I Connect my YN622 to my Rovelight via cable, as you suggested (the one from Amazon looks right to me), and I use a YN622C-TX on my camera to fire the rovelight. It will sync up to 1/2000 until I get to the highest power rating on the Rovelight, at which time I see curtain issues.

I coupled mine with a Paul C Buff 47" octa; for what I've done so far I would have been just as well off with a nice beauty dish.

I have tried it with a 7D, 5D, 7DMKII, and 5DMKII ... and it syncs fine up to 1/8000. I never tried it with the 5DMKIII(which I also have) since I never use it with a Rovelight.

Stand corrected; I'm good to 1/8000 as well not 1/2000. except for the top power level.
