Be careful. Your older Canon flashguns will only work in TTL mode only. To use manual control, you need Canon EX II flashguns or Youngnuo EX.

I've had some older canon flashes and they had Manual control... 550EX and even an EZ flash (430 I think it was)

just need to hit the Mode button and it cycles through

If you use Youngnuo YN622C trigger, you leave the flashgun in ETTL mode and can control the power of the flashguns using the camera flash control manual without walking over to them. This only works if you have Canon EX II or Youngnuo 565EX or 568EX.

If you use the flashguns in manual mode, there is no point in buying YN622C, just get some cheaper triggers.

One final question before I press the Buy It Now button, to use my 600d with my 565EX, do I need 1 unit or 2?

If you use your internal flash to control the 565EX, you only need one.

Cheers Guys for all you input, I now feel enlightened (sorry for the pun) to the mysteries of rf wireless flash.
