Official Unboxing Yongnuo YN 622N Flash Triggers

Well I ordered and received my new flash triggers. Anyone that have watched any of my You Tube videos already knows that I have had wireless triggers for sometime now. I just never could afford triggers such as these.

What makes these triggers different from the others it that they offer what is known as ITTL or Through The Lens Metering. The way this works is that the camera takes a millisecond burst to see how much light is needed. The camera then tell the flash how much output power to use for the shot. This saves time by not having to meter every shot when you move people or your speed lights.

These triggers also offer what is known as High Speed Sync. I have wanted this for years. Normal flash triggers only allow you to sync to your shutter at 1/200 sec shutter speed. If you go any higher you will see a black line on your pictures. This is the shutter closing and not having enough light to capture the picture. With High Speed Sync the flash will pulse light even at high shutter speeds.

And yes the triggers can be used as manual flash triggers as well as working with a sync cable for your studio strobes.

All of this for only $85.00 US plus shipping. Watch the video to see these in a short demo I did last night. If you order these triggers please use my Amazon link on this page before you place you order. Thanks and Enjoy!

Flash Triggers

Most people you will see with a speed light or off camera flash always seem to have their flash hanging off the camera. They connect the flash directly to the hot show of the camera. I also did this for years, I didn’t know of any better way.

Now I know from years of studying flash and the way that light falls off of our subject we need to get the flash off the camera and place it on angles. This will allow us to create different lighting effects.

There are a few ways we can get the flash off the camera. We are going to only concentrate on one for this column.

We are talking about flash triggers. Flash triggers come in many shapes and sizes and yes prices. So where do you start in your quest to find the perfect trigger? I am glad you asked.

If you go the cheapest rate, which I did this once. You will find triggers that work, sometimes. This means I was experiencing a lot of misfires. If you ever want to make a client upset, get them in the perfect pose and have your flash not fire. Also makes you look really like an amateur. This is not to say you have to buy the most expensive, pocket wizards. You need to find the middle of the road.

My triggers I go to most of the time is Impact triggers I bought from BH Photo Video, they are the only company that carries them. I have also heard really good things about Yongnuo. My next set of triggers I am ordering soon is the new Yongnuo YN-622N. These triggers allow is to shoot off camera and high speed sync, more on that later.
