My 622's and yn565ex came today.
I can say yes they work, beautifully.
The build quality of the triggers and flash is much better than I was expecting, I had played with an old yn460 flash and it was terrible. These feel easily on par with the canon. Set up is super easy, the triggers just worked out of the box. Now I just need to get another set to use with some other flashes as well!

I love having Manual control from the camera, without having to adjust at the flash.  ;D

I have only tested in my living room so far so can't comment on range etc yet but I am very pleased.
anyone in AUS wasnt to buy a 430 exII ?  ;)

ELV0000 over at Strobist.com on Flickr did an amazing review on the 622C's here:

I see some of them in my future - I have used RF-602's for years with good results.

I ordered a set of 622s today after reading the review on the Flickr strobist.com group.

I don't have much expeirance with flashes so..
I had 60D nad YN-568 and as I remember I was able to put the flash in the slave mode and fire it up from the camera. The camera had buit in wirelles flash control.

I saw this YN-622 came up. I plan on buying 5D Mk III, but I still don't quite understand the flash part.

I understand one can put YN-622 on 5D mark III and use it as a trigger, but do you have to have it on each flash?
For example, if I had three flashes, would I have to put it one each flash and on camera? ...a bit confused.

Yes, it's not using the infared signal. It's sending a 2.4ghz wireless signal. I just ordered a pair last week. I'll try to post something once I've had a chance to use it some.

Mine arrived today. I've only had a brief chance to test them but so far so good. Straight from the box, insert batteries, attach to camera / flashes, switch on and boom - perfect first time.

They seem pretty well screwed together. I tried a 565EX on top of the 622 in the hotshoe and waved the camera around in portrait orientation. The whole combo felt perfectly tight.

By the way, if your new 622s look scratched up, don't worry: the shiny top surface has a clear protective cover on it. It took me a minute or two to realise this because it's stuck on very firmly and has no tabs, so it takes a persistent fingernail to get it off.

I am looking to order a set of these triggers, and also another flash (likely the 565EX), my only problem is locating a reputable seller.  I really do not trust all the ebay sellers.  Anyone here who has ordered/received these where did you order them from?  Would you recomend them?  Note that I am in Canada and would prefer some sort of free shipping and if possible avoiding duties!
Many thanks for all your help guys!

Where exactly are you in Canada? I saw ads on Kijiji this weekend in Toronto for the 568EX's for $180 with local pickup.

I have bought all my Yongnuo stuff from Yongnuo's offical eBay store - never an issue. Years ago I even sent something back for warranty replacement the only is is timing for returns. If you need two buy three, etc...

I'm in Ottawa.  I have seen some Kijiji ads of some Ontario retailer for yongnuo stuff but it's almost double the price of me buying direct or from dx.com,  I may have a look at the official eBay store though thanks for that info. Good to know others have ordered from there without issue. I know that it will take at least 1-2 month to get here, I've bought stuff from China before not a big deal as long as they work.

Mine's in the mail- I can post a quick review once I get them. Anything in particular you're curious about?
Bought in on Amazon BTW, $ 85 with free shipping. Plus, will arrive in 5 days :)

How good is the photo gadget in terms of shipping time, and returns? The fact that they will test them is nice. Price looks really good,  best I've seen. Did you have to pay duties on it when it arrived? Thanks for the info and help.

Do you have the amazon link handy? I thought amazon.com did not ship to canada, had to use .ca
Keep me informed if you do receive it in 5days, and if they arrived in new/sealed boxes and working condition.
Many thanks.

Here it is, but they seem to have raised the price in the last 2 days.

USPS tracking shows expected delivery by 14th, so that works out to 5 days all right (ordered it pretty late on the 9th). Ships from Vermont I believe- so it might reach Canada quicker :)

Unfortunately as I thought I cannot have this item shipped to Canada.  Have to use the amazon.ca website which only has 1 YN-622 available (I need 2) and it is from a different "reseller" that has 0 feedback and is likely shipping from china so it will take just as long.
