I would like to use this so that two flashes both fire multiple times until the shutter closes. I can get the flashes to do this individually when attached to the camera, and I can get both to fire once, triggered by the YN622, but cannot find a way to combine these functions. If any member has an answer, I would be very grateful.
I think I’ve done everything in the manual and instructional videos I’ve watched, but I can’t seem to get my new Yongnuo YN600EX-RT II flash to link up with my Canon 77D using the Easy Wireless setup. I want to use it as a wireless slave. Optical slave works fine, but the 10-18mm lens casts a shadow from the onboard flash. It also works fine onboard the camera.
I asked on an Amazon product page (I needed it soon!) and someone said it’s compatible, but Yonguo doesn’t list it in the product description. I love the 77D, but it seems like an outlier in Canon’s line.
Any ideas? I don’t want to buy a wireless trigger. This CNET video tells me I’m not misunderstanding the concept!
Here’s the back of the flash:
And here’s the back of my 77D:
I bought two flash YN720 with the understanding that I didn’t need a trigger to fire both master and slave flashes. Not sure how to set them up? I have two RF 630N triggers but I would rather not use them. Is it possible?
This is the blurb from manufacturer: ‘Built into it is a 2.4 GHz wireless transceiver, allowing it to be fired remotely at distances of up to 328’ or used as a master to directly control the mode and output of compatible flashes. Additionally, it can also be used as an optical slave for multi-flash setups without radio transmission. ‘
I have a typical newbie question. I’ve done HDR for a couple of years now and I see its limitations, so I’m ready to start using flash.
I do real estate photography with the Canon EF-S 10-18mm lens on a 77D. I’m not quite comfortable using manual mode, so I set it on Av with f/6.3. Almost all the homes I shoot are less than 4000 sqft.
I plan to use a flash or two on stands just outside of the frame. I assume I’ll have to use a diffuser because of the ultra-wide angle lens.
I’m thinking about buying this flash. My question is, is this overkill? If not, what would you recommend?
Also, will it work in E-TTL mode using the Canon Easy Wireless system?
My first question ever. I am considering buying the Panasonic Lumix GX85 and would like to know if I can use my Yongnuo YN968 EX-RT flash with it. Are they compatible? Will I get TTL with this combo? From down in Brazil… ofotografoamericano.
Is it combo usable, I mean the lens aperture is not dead and focuses accurately on sony a7 i?
I’m using 5dmarkiii and two Yongnuo YN-622C II E-TTL triggers. One is on the camera with 600exiirt speedlight on it and the other one is with another manual speedlight.
The problem is that I can’t control manual settings of the flash that is on top of the camera. I have to go to the camera settings and change it there. This is especially pain when I photograph moving objects. Every change in power needs to be done on the camera settings not the flash itself.
In the middle of a shoot, I had the idea of doing some off-camera flash pictures. This is the gear I used:
- camera: Nikon D7100
- speedlight: Yongnuo YN685
- radio trigger: Yongnuo YN622 TX-N
I realized that I had forgotten the flash stand in another room. So I managed to balance it on the ground. My idea was to make some effect with a coloured gel behind my subject. The radio trigger fired the flash.
But afterwards, when I tried to put the speedlight back on top of the camera, it would not turn on. It had new batteries in it, but wouldn’t power up at all. I did not smell any burning. Did I make a mistake by firing it while it was on the ground?
New to photography and looking to use the yn685n on my Nikon D810. I am looking to use 3 yn685n but would love to have one on camera and 2 on lightstands.
I have the 622n-tx and understand that it needs to be on the hot shoe to set off the 685. I need my on camera flash to be a different power than the ones on the light stand.
Has anyone ever used a hot shoe splitter? I’m trying to figure out creative ways to do this. Any help would be appreciated.
I do know my question confuses and I do apologize for that. As a beginner, I still struggle to articulate things in a nice way. So I think it’s better to explain the scenario first.
I was using a Nikon D5300 and a Yongnuo YN-565EX flash. Both the camera and flash don’t support HSS. Now I sold my D5300 to upgrade to the D7200 and I’m buying a Yongnuo YN-568EX flash too with it, as it supports HSS.
My question is, can the YN-565EX (my old flash) be used as a second flash (for example, to light up the background for portrait photography), when I use HSS with the D7200 and YN-568EX combo?
