I have a Nikon D3200, and I'm thinking about buying a budget i-TTL capable flash to use with it, primarily off-camera. I was considering the YN565EXN, but the D3200 can't remotely control it with i-TTL, so I would need to pair it with a pair of YN-622Ns.

Would this pack work together correctly and provide i-TTL capability on my camera? Is there any better alternative (on the same price range)? Anyone has some experiences with this combination?

Yes, a pair of YN-622N transceivers would allow you to use a YN565EXN flash, or any other iTTL flash without the need for a camera mounted "master" flash unit. Settings changes are made with the 3 small buttons on the camera mounted YN-622N.

For about the same money, I would recommend one YN-622TX-N transmitter and one YN-622N transceiver. The YN-622TX-N transmitter has it's own menu system which you will find much easier to use.
