Wordsmith9091: I'm not sure if anyone's still checking this post, but I've got a YN560II and I might be about to get a NEX-6, which is HSS capable.

Could I use one of those cheapy optical triggers (like a Seagull) to send a signal at HSS-like speeds and trigger the 560-II the way you're doing with an HSS-capable flash?

I'm sorry to hear that. I don't know why but it doesn't work for some people.

Pankajkumars: I have a 622C pair and 1 560II. Can I do HSS in the setup. I tried and failed. Is there any specific points to be considered or I am trying worthless.

I did successfully with YN622N trigger and YN560III. So I think you can do HSS with YN622C and YN560III. The only thing you need to consider is setting the YN560III in full power.

With YN560, you neet to set the flash to fullpower so that it can do HSS. If you have any HSS flash, you can use it to trigger the YN560. If you don't have any HSS flash, you still can make the YN560 do HSS by using some HSS trigger like the yn622. But it seems that those HSS triggers are not cheap very much.

With non-hss triger, you can not do HSS with any flash.

Dall: Hey nice article.

Unfortunately I cant make my YN-560 do as you descripe!

@Dall
You must set the YN560 to full power so that they can do HSS.

@Foluche
Of course the Metz 50AF-1 must be in HSS mode. I know there some flashes that you need to turn on the HSS mode so that they can do HSS. But with Metz 50AF-1, it's default when you attach it to the camera, which is in HSS mode.

One more thing, there is no magic here cause I can trigger the YN560 do HSS with the built-in flash of the Nikon D700. Of course, the buit-in flash cannot sync over 1/250s, but when you set it to commander mode, and choose the double dash (--) mode so that you can fire the built-in flash at high speed.

motomanDK: Great article and i have tried this with my Sigma EF610 in HSS mode and the 2 YN560III fire as expected, but they are somehow 'off-sync' with the camera/hss flash because the light from the YN560III's doesn't show on the picture.
What am i doing wrong here????

Did you set the YN560 to full power? With HSS flashes you can do HSS at lower power. But with YN560, it can do HSS only when you set it to full power.

Foluche: As far as i get, you even doesn't need for HSS on camera flash. All you need is to get shutter speed 1/500 and faster + remote trigger. On some camera this could be achieved with simple radio trigger like YongNuo RF-603. Am I right? Does anyone tried this?

I heard that some camera, like nikon D70, can sync at any speed. But most camera can not. Furthermore, trigger like YN RF-603 only allow the speed of 1/200s or lower. But the story is different with Yongnuo YN622. I'm going to update my article soon to talk about the speed sync with YN622 trigger.
