Re: Can more than one flash be controlled off-camera with a pair of Yongnuo YN-622C

Hi, I don't use Yn 622Cs, but I'd be extremely surprised if that worked, even for Canon Manual Wireless, let alone, ETTL. I accept the point, made above, that you could get away with only 2 622Cs  strictly if one of the Speedlites was 'on Trx-on cam'.

It is in fact possible to use a Canon Wireless Light/IR type link when the Master unit is being driven by a simple M only RF trigger - but - only with the Canon Wireless Light/IR link set to M - and - with a significant loss of top sync speed. I would never recommend such a setup - unless it was absolutely the only option to get the shot.

I would still advise 3 Trx 622C units as the way to go, if you are wedded to a Yn solution. If your 430 is the 'non II' version, my comment (1st reply) still holds. Cheers
