ETTL with YN-568 and YN-560. Plus, manual with other flash unit

You will never have TTL or remote power control from a YN-622 with the YN-560III. The YN-560III is a manual-only flash. Note that there is only a single pin on the foot of the flash. This is for the …

how many YN-622C do you need to work with YN-568EX II

You need two YN-622C triggers; the YN-568EXII does not have a radio receiver built into it. It does have an optical sensor and can be used as both a Canon optical master or slave; as well as a "dumb" …

Remote trigger of Canon 420EX Speedlite

Hate to say it, but the 420EX is a terrible candidate to use off-camera in any radio or non-TTL scheme (like the Yongnuo YN-560 gear), because it has no Manual mode. You can only really control its p …

Can I trigger my flash with an iPhone?

The iSyncFlash app is supposed to do this, by syncing the iPhone's camera to the flash, rather than the other way around (although the current reviews of the app indicates it doesn't work much on phon …

Can manual non-TTL flashes be fired remotely without a remote trigger?

But is it also possible to trigger the remote flash using the built-in flash on my camera? Yes. Or is this only reserved to TTL-compatible flashes? No, it's not. There are two manual-only s …

When and why should I consider buying a speedlight/external flash?

The first reason someone thinks they need a speedlight is typically a low light situation where you've hit the limits of iso/aperture/shutter speed. Either because your gear is hardware-limited, or b …

What remote flash triggers can you recommend, on a budget?

If we're talking about a per-unit price, then the trigger that meets all four requirements is the Yongnuo YN-622C. They cost roughly $85/pair (as of the time of this writing). They communicate the f …

Why is my Nissin Di866 off-camera flash firing early?

There are three possible ways you can remotely trigger the Di-866 from the D810's pop-up flash. The most probable issue you have is that you've set the pop-up flash to one system, while you've set the …

Yongnuo YN560-TX N + YN-560 IV Flash + YN-568 EX Flash

... if YN-568 has only an optical receiver, can I trigger it firing the YN-560 through the YN-560TX transmitter mounted on my camera? Does this makes sense? You can "daisy-chain" the optical trig …

Why don't my radio triggers work even when I've set the flash to slave mode?

The issue here is that you set the 430EX II to slave mode. You need to set up the flash so that it thinks it's on a camera hotshoe (i.e., take it out of slave mode). The wireless modes in the 430EX I …

Do TTL flashes always "count" as a single pre-flash?

Basically, you're talking about two different types of optical slaving/triggering, and they tend to be incompatible with each other. The system that your Sony flash/camera uses to trigger the flash o …

Why is power tied to TTL and zoom tied to M with my Phottix Odin II and LumoPro LP180R?

It could be that your LumoPro LP180R is on an older firmware version that doesn't know about the Odin II transmitter (the LP180R came out before the Odin IIs did). The current firmware version with f …

Please confirm whether the Canon 430EX can be used as off camera flash with the Canon EOS 1300d

Not without additional gear. Canon reserves a flash "master" for the built-in pop-up flash for the ###D/T#i series of digital Rebels (T3i and later) and higher-end camera bodies. The SL/T### and ####D …

How do I use Canon speedlights off-camera with a Sony A7 III?

The only triggering system where you can use legacy OEM TTL speedlights cross-brand is the Cactus V6II X-TTL system. However, Cactus may be out of the photographic gear business. And the entire syste …

YN 568EXIII flash underexposing at 1/16 and higher outputs

You've got a mode mismatch between your pop-up flash settings and your 568EX III's slave mode. You either need to take your pop-up flash out of Commander mode, and use it as a regular pop-up flash in …
