I own five Canon flashes (two 580EXIIs, a 550EX, and two 430EX IIs), and I have learned to work the Canon E-TTLII system (thanks in part to Chuck Gardner, who posts frequently on this forum). The system works fairly well, both in auto and manual modes. But there are times when it doesn't work as well as it might, especially when one or more of the slaves are not in a line of site with the master flash, or when the master flash is firing into a directional light modifier that doesn't allow the trigger signal to reach the slaves. A radio system that allows full control from the camera sounds a lot more convenient.
If budgets were of no concern, I'd simply sell my flashes on CraigsList or eBay and buy a bunch of EX600RT flashes. But my wallet's not fat, and I'm reluctant to give up flashes that work very well just to gain the convenience of radio control. A friend has been using Pocket Wizard Flex transceivers for several years with good results, but I'm put off by their price and the radio-interference problem they have had with some Canon flashes.
I've just become aware of Yongnuo YN-622C radio transceivers, and I'd like to know if anyone here has experience with them. I've seen a few preliminary reviews online, including some YouTube videos, that suggest that the Yongnuo units provide most (if not all) of the functions of the Pocket Wizard system, and the EX600RT flashes, for much less money. I'd appreciate any experiences with them that you might care to share. Thanks!
