I posted about the Yongnuo YN-622c flash transceiver awhile back. It looked like a pretty good option, but I was already using a set of Pixel King E-TTL wireless triggers for flash work. Recently my Pixel King receiver took a nose dive off a light stand taking a second unit with it. The flashes survived but the cold shoe broke off both receivers and the 1/4 20 threads are in pretty bad shape. I looked into replacement cost and they want $78 a peace for the receivers.

When I looked up the cost of the Yongnuo YN-622c flash transceivers on ebay, i found out you can buy a set of 4 transceivers for $159 with free shipping which is about the same price as two replacement Pixel King receivers. I thought this might be a good opportunity to test out the Yongnuo YN-622c flash transceivers and see how well they work.

I just left for Oregon this morning and stopped in for some Voodoo Doughnuts on the way to the motel, so I won’t be able to run any tests until I get back next week. I don’t do a lot of flash tests, so if there is anything you’d like to see tested let me know and I’ll add it to my list of things to do.

Also, I brought some test footage I shot with the Ninja and 5d mark III with me. Hopefully i’ll be able to do some grading tests while i’m in the motel and post them this week. I’ll keep you posted.
