Yongnuo Wireless Questions
Oct 24, 2013

So before I get berated with endless chatter about who hates yongnuo and why I should invest in 'real' speedlites, turn around and ignore because I'm an 8 years of photographic learning/growing, fresh on the market semi-pro that still has quite the inventory/investment/income to grow and don't need a talking to right now.


Today I received my two YN560iii's with the built in 2.4ghz wireless. I was hoping I could trigger one with the other via wireless and not optical slave, but I missed that detail about that not being possible since it receiver only. I was also hoping I would get lucky with Paul C Buff's cybersync, but I never win the lottery.

As an emergency backup I went and bought an affordable Promaster trigger system. For now this will be fine, but:

Does anyone know if there is any way possible to trip these flashes with a third party, specifically the Promaster transmitter? If so, what dipswitch setting per unit, etc etc.

Thanks in advance.
