  1. Great piece Phil. I now have 5 of these in use with 4 Yongnuo flashes (a 460, a 565EX and 2 568EXs) and I have to say the whole setup is fantastic and very easy to use via the flash control menu on my 600D…… and I didn’t have to sell my children to pay for it all. Keep up the good work.

    What a coincidence. Mine just arrived today. I haven’t had a chance to try them out yet. Love the idea of putting the manual trigger on top as I already have 6 cactus triggers (which I really like). Can’t wait to put this to the test. Thanks for the video. Now I know what to watch out for too.

    For those just starting to use radio triggers and who want to venture beyond the simple dumb triggers, consider the following:
    Raiopoppers can be used as dumb triggers or, with the addition of the appropriate hot shoe (cube) Canon or Nikon, can use the TTL function of the lights to adjust power manually from the transmitter on the camera hot shoe. This frees you from the built in technology and allows you to go completely manual as you should. The Radiopoppers with the cubes are about 2/3 the cost of Phottix Odin and as simple transmitter and receiver about 1/2 the price. I have found them to be absolutely reliable and my only failure was when I forgot to turn them on. I am an amateur just dipping his toes in hair shooting for competition and am not paid to plug Radiopoppers. Happy shooting.

    One question: I have not been able to use the TTL function on the YN565 for manual control even though the 565 works normally in TTL on the camera or cord.
    Has anyone else experienced this and found a work around? My other TTL lights are 580EX11s and work perfectly. I use YN 560s as optical slaves for background lights etc.

    Have you looked at the YN622C-TX. This means you don’t have to use the Canon menus as everything is set up using the LCD screen on the Yongnuo.

    Hi Phill. I -finally- bought a set of these YN622C, and also a YN600RT Flash, hoping the flash would be able to sync with the YN622C triggers with a Canon 430 EXII mounted on to…. But no. The RT flash does not seem to connect to these triggers. Can you, or someone else, confirm this incompatibility or (hopefully) prove me wrong? Otherwise my purchase of the 600RT will prove pretty useless unless I buy another similar RT unit.

  7. Phil Steele says:

    Hi Federico, I haven’t used the YN600RT flash so I don’t have any direct experience with this setup, but it seems in theory if it’s a Canon compatible flash then this should all work. Check with Yongnuo and see what others are saying online, and let me know if you get it figured out. Best, Phil
