YN-622C and 600ex-rt setup question
« on: July 01, 2013, 12:43:20 PM »
I currently have 2x 600EX-RT's and a pair of YN-622C's being given to me in the next couple weeks. What I would like to know is...

Will I be able to setup one 600EX-RT to fire with the YN-622C's, and be able to use that 600EX-RT to wirelessly fire the second 600EX-RT?  I know I could just buy a third YN-622C transceiver, but would prefer to put the cash toward something else if I can.

No - you'll need a transceiver for each flash (and one on the camera).  Alternatiely, you could get a cheap optical slave trigger for the second 600 (the Sonia one with the green base, $16 from flashzebra or on eBay).

I have a related question. Currently I have one pair of YN622C and one 600exrt. I use it as fill flash mainly.

I would like to explore more on flash photography.  But I am not ready to commit to buying another 600exrt yet. What I'm willing to invest is probably 300-500 for two more flashes. I think I want to get another pair of YN622C and two YN flashes.  My question is which model I should get such that they would work with my 600ex as a master. I see many different models and I can't really tell the difference. 
6D, 24-70 2.8L II, 16-35 F4L IS, 17-40L, 100 2.8L, 70-200L F4 IS, 85 1.8, 135L, Sigma 35 1.4, 600Ex-RT, Rokinon 14mm, EOS M

I know that solution would work, but if I used the YN-622C's (one on camera and one on the first 600EX-RT), the 600EX-RT fired by the Yongnuo would still not be able to fire the second 600EX-RT using their own built-in wireless functions?

Hi,

If you have two Canon 600ex-rt not the yongnuo versions, you should probably just purchase the Canon Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT.

This Canon Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT, will allow you to control your two speedlites wirelessly and will allow you greater control of your flashes using the LCD screen.

Good luck

If you want to save money, get the YongNuo version of the  st-e3-rt, the yn-e3-rt.

There has been great reviews of this unit on threads here on the forum...I'm gonna get one soon myself.
