The Yongnuo YN-467 fires ahead(by split second of course:)) of my 430EXII when I put them side by side. I tried it at 1/125 f/4.0 ISO 100 inside my house. Anybody tested or tried two diff flashes together? Or is it normal?

BTW, I'm still new to this off-camera flash thingy.:D

Other than some other eBay sellers, the guys at YongNuo say that the 467 isn't compatible with the 7D.

Side by side as in both firing?
How are you triggering them?
Does this happen when you use your XTi?

Im not familiar with then Yongnuo flash, but Im assuming its optically triggered?

if so, the preflash from the 7D (all Canon E-TTL IIs do) is tripping the optical slave sensor on the YN-467.

btw are you from 3si? its Macky...

+1 The preflash from the 7D is triggering the YN-467, set the 7D built in flash into manual mode.

This was my original thought.

Change the Optical Slave mode on the YN-467 to S2.

1. Yes
2. IR trigger from 7D. I'm using the Nikon SG-3IR(http://www.bhphotovide​o.com/images/largeimag​es/410445.jpg (external link))
3. I just tried it with my xti and it only triggers the YN. Prolly that's why.

Yes, the pre-flash triggers the YN. But when it achieves focus and I press the shutter and observe both flashes as they fire, I can see the YN firing first by a split second. If I look at the preview, the flashes fired together. See my next response below.

And yeah, this is Bruce.:D

Oh I got it! When in Manual, they both fire at the same time. But on ETTLII, the YN fires first by a split second. Both pictures look the same.

So YN is not IR triggered? Thanks everyone.

seems to me that the YN is reacting to E-TTL II. set it to manual then. you should be ok :)

and how're things going man? you still have the stealth? werent you in LA for a while?

It is responding to the eTTL preflash. Set the flash to S2, like I stated above. :|

Yeah that too. In Manual on the 7D(no pre-flash), they both fire at the same time.

On S2 on the YN and ETTLII on the 7D, they both fire at the same time.

I still have the stealth. I'm almost to the point of buying the new 99 front bumper and getting new paint. Did you try to call me? I tried to call the no. you gave me before.

To the OP, can you comment a bit more on the functionality of the YN-467 with your 7D? I'm interested in buying one and contacted "hkyongnuophotoequipme​nt" on ebay at the recommend of another POTN member. They told me that the YN-467 and 7D are not compatible. Specifically, they commented that the TTL functions do not work. Are you having any issues with that other than the optical one you mentioned? Do you ever use your flash in TTL mode on or off camera? Really just looking for any extra info that you have on compatibility... Thanks!

When trigger the Yn467 with 7D or canon flashes, Does The YN work on TTL mode or just manual?
Can the YN-467 works TTL in offcamera?

A quick google of YN 467 indicates that there are Canon and Nikon TTL versions.
There is probably a section in the manual for the flash that tells how to set it up to work in ETTL mode with your Canon.

A quick google search will also show that there are problems with how it works specifically with the 7D. Just trying to find someone that actually uses the two together that can comment on what issues there are.
