Has anyone got any experience of these.

If they do as they say then they are a total bargain? - Or am I missing something when comparing them to OEM, Pocket Wizards etc?

I use the cheaper non-E-TTL triggers from the same brand and they are fab.

They have only a 1/250 sync speed, whereas some others have up to 1/8,000 sec. If that matters to you of course.

1/250 sec would be more than enough for most things I would have thought.

It would be okay for most of my stuff, I imagine though that people shooting things like skateboarding would need much faster, so good to know.

Really tempted now!

I think PielKingdo something at at similar price with a higher Sync speed. I think they are sold by Highland photography through Amazon

Just get a compact with a decent leaf shutter and a hot shoe, you can then sync the flash at all shutter speeds, but I`ve never seen wireless triggers that allow high sync speeds.

I have the YN622C, and they just work. You can get 1/8000 sync in HSS mode. You have full manual control as well as ETTL.

I've got a pair as well twinned with a Yongnuo Speedlite YN565EX and for the money they appear to very well made and do exactly what they say on the tin.

Fine if you can get by with the reduced output Smile

Given the saving between these and PW's, and the top Yongnuo ttl speedlite equivalent to the 430/580,
you could afford to have 2 or 3 of these firing from the same spot Paul -
certainly makes creative ttl strobism on a budget more appealing Smile

I've just done a review of the YN568EX for lighting rumours. Excellent speedlight for the price.

the only reason I'd go ETTL on triggers is for HSS - shutter speeds of 1/4000th etc. allow you to shoot wide apertures in bright conditions

I'd probably still shoot manual flash power with ETTL triggers so I have control.

a trainer friend of mine does just that - has the latest pocket wizards and nikon kit, uses Manual power and shoots at silly fast speeds.

I'm assuming that if you are using manual mode, you can make all speedlite power adjustments from camera with the YN622C's?

that'd be cool too

looks like the Yongnuo flashes don't support ETTL so hey ho

not blowing 350 on Canon 580's only to see them smash on the pavement - yet again Wink
