Yongnuo YN-622C (2 of 10)

While the Pixel kings I had before came with a bag, flash stands, and few extra strobe cables, the Yongnuo YN-622C wireless flash triggers don’t come with any accessories. That’s fine for me as I still have all the extra bits and pieces from my broken Pixel king set, but it might raise the price for you if you end up needing to buy all those little extras.

Even though the Yongnuo YN-622C is made out of plastic, build quality is reasonably good. The hot shoe is made out of metal instead of plastic like the one used on the Pixel king receivers which should make them a little more durable. I think they’d still probably break under the same beating my old units took, but they don’t feel like a downgrade in quality over the Pixel Kings and the metal hot shot gives them a slight advantage.

I’ve only been home about 2 days so I’ve only had a small amount of time to play around with the Yongnuo YN-622C units. I was attempting to test the range of operation which is supposed to be up to 100 meters (about 300 feet). This shot (above) was taken from a little over a 120 feet with the Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS lens and the flash was consistently triggering in my master closet.  That should be more than enough for anything I need, but I’ll take them out testing when I get a chance and let you know how they do.

The price is right and the features are better than most other units on the market. So far I feel pretty positive about the Yongnuo YN-622C wireless flash trigger. I’ll be spending some more time with it and hopefully i’ll get a review up at some point in the next few weeks. Right now i’m just glad to be home.
