Don’t TouchYongnuo YN-622C – Manual for dummies
After performing a Yongnuo YN-622C test, I have felt like Fred Flintstone lost in New York City today.
Yongnuo flash sync equipment offers you the possibility to control all the settings that your equipment has available, and, as I am used to working with other sets of economic range triggers I felt a little dummie at some point.
That is why I am going to try to write a small manual of the YN-622C, to get rid of the Fred Flintstones complex. If you notice, my last name could be from the same quarry Wilma’s husband … There is that wedge xD
The main idea of the manual for dummies:
The main idea of this manual for dummies about the use of the Yongnuo YN-622C is to prevent you from feeling the same situation.
I put myself in the position of the photographer who has just begun to take pictures in manual and buff mode … The world fell on me.
As secondary ideas there are a few. How to synchronize your flashes at high speed , channel and group configuration, flash exposure lock, flash exposure bracketing, flash exposure compensation, flash sync to the second curtain, etc.
If you see that I have forgotten something and want to know how, you can ask directly by writing a comment. At the moment I have not eaten anyone who has commented, not even the trolls.
The even more main idea of this manual about the YN-622C:
That you use it, that you enjoy it, that you share it and that you download it to use it whenever you want.
With the intention that you master the synchronization device and take control over the strobist .
After this declaration of intentions about the manual of use for dummies of the Yongnuo Yn-622C we go to the mess.
The first thing you will do to use the YN-622C:
It will seem obvious but I will not jump. Mount a transceiver in the camera once you have put batteries, recueda serving the rechargeable you use for your flashes.
Then mount a flash on the other transceiver and place it on a stable surface, or swipe it on your tripod.
Turn on your camera first and then the transceivers, in the last step and assuming that we speak only of a remote flash, turn on the flash.
Access the reflex control menu of your SLR:
Now I have put myself in the role of a canonist, if you are your camera, you are from another brand, look for the similarities.
Access the flash control menu and in the next menu choose the external flash settings option.
If you get an error message like “This menu can not be displayed …” check that all devices are on (including the flash).
Selection of flash mode:
Now that you are inside the menu, it gives you as a first option flash mode, choose between ETTL-II, ETTL, Flash Manual or Flash Multi. Or through the options offered by your team.
Assuming that we still have a flash, two transceivers and a reflex body click on the first button on the left of the transmitter to select channel one and do the same with the receiver.
Repeat the step with the first button on the right to select the group.
Select the shutter sync:
In principle, you should be shown only the options 1st curtain and High speed for the synchronization of shutter speed and flash.
If what you want is to synchronize to the second curtain you will first have to look for the wireless setting option and disable the wireless function. Now go back to synchronization of the flash and you will see that the 2nd curtain option is already available to synchronize the flash.
