The Canon version of Yongnuo’s YN-622 commander has been released. Some of you have been waiting for this one.
For those not in the know, the YN-622C-TX is the Canon equivalent of the YN-622N-TX that has already been available for a while for Nikon. The device is an advanced flash radio transmitter with its own LCD control panel. You can use it to trigger your other YN-622 receivers, and remotely adjust your off-camera Speedlite settings and power levels in either manual or E-TTL mode.
If you’re a Canon user then this device is convenient, but not absolutely necessary as you can already make nearly all the same adjustments via your camera’s own menu system. The same is not true for Nikon users, which is probably why Yongnuo released the i-TTL version first.
Other handy features include a PC sync jacket, a micro-USB port and a laser autofocus-assist lamp.
Get yours for $55.99 from the Yongnuo’s official store. You’ll also need a YN-622C (or two, or five) to plug into your flashes and act as receivers. They run for around $40 each. Visit the manufacturer’s product page for more information.
