1 step of the FEC (or flash output) on the flash for group B
X It is supported to set the FEC on the flash directly , the
compensation value shall be superposed according to
flash setting plus the transmitter setting.
Manual Flash Output Control(remote control mode)
- YN-622N provides a general way of manual control
of the flash output . For the same manual flash output
values of 622N, even using different GN of the flash, the
output is the same (in case not exceed the effective
range of the flash).
° The minimum manual flash output value ot 622N 15 1,
the maximum flash output according to different GN of
the flash, the default value is 8, add 1 step is 10.4, add 1
step is 16, and so on. The value of 622N is proportional,
when the value A is twice as B, the flash output of the
former is half of the latter, refer to the form below.

16 20.8 | 27.2 32 41.6 | 54.4 64 83.2 | 108.8 | 128
When the 622N using master contorl mode(refet to
p15), the manual output values of the master unit and
manual output value of YN-622N convert as below:

7.Flash Shutter Sync:
- Refer to the camera’ s setting. Supports front-curtain
sync, rear-curtain sync and high speed synchronous
(HSS/Auto FP*).
*Using high-speed synchronization need to set the flash
sync speed of the camera to AUTO FP.
*The maximum high-speed synchronization speed is
1/8000s or 1/4000s (depends on the camera).
*Some models of camera does not support the HSS
(without Auto FP option), the shutter speed will be
limited to 1/250s or less when using this kind of camera.

3.Master Control Mode& On-top flash.
1.Power on of the on-top flash: First turn on the on-
top flash, then turn on the transmitter.
2.The on-top flash use non master control model:
« Flash modes, exposure compensation (flash output),
zoom or other parameters set directly on the flash, not
affected by the transmitter settings. Supports i-TTL,
Manual, Repeating flash.
3.The on-top flash use master control mode:
- Using the on-top flash(master unit) which support
master mode to set each group of flash mode and
parameters, support i-TTL, Manual flash.
1.Turn on the master unit and| f :

3.Set the flash mode and parameter on the master
unit of each group (refer to the manufacturer's
usermanual). It will communicate via the YN-
622N transceiver's channel.
4.Use the test button of the transmitter to test flash and
shoot, the flash fires.
XThe master unit set on the on-top of the transmitter
will not transmit infrared commands.
| Caution! Do not connect to the PC| la

+ Purchase corresponding PC flash sync cord according to
the different ports of the flashes needs.
1. Use an end of PCsync cord with nut to connect to the receiver.
2. The other end of the PC sync cord connects to strobe flashes
or other flashes which supporting PC port.
3. Setthe camera's shutter sync as front-curtain or rear-curtain.
4. Adjust shooting parameters and shoot.
* Super sync: Use the non-high speed sync flash to realize
higher sync speed, this function is more applicable to strobe
flashes whose flash duration is longer, and it is for the camera
which support Auto FP only.
1. Connect the receiver to flash via PC port and it may needs
setting at manual full-power flash output (1/1).
2. Set the flash sync speed of the camera as AUTO FP, the
maximum shutter sync speeds can reach to 1/8000s. Take
photos and check whether the photos are synchronous , it
may see gradations or variations in the photos, results
depend on the camera and flash.
The PC port is for output using only.
Flashes on the hot shoe and connecting to the PC port
can be used at the same time.
5. The single contact camera/flash: Manually
setting the flash output
1).Transmitting group setting: According to the
transmitter group setting method 2(P9).
2).Flash mode setting (on the flash):Set to manual
flash mode, use the transmitter's main flash trigger
contact; but it does not support high synchronous
speed or other TTL function(the maximum
synchronous speed is 1/250s or less).
* Factory Reset

° About the Max Sync Speed
It needs the camera and flash both support hi-speed
sync, and the max sync speed is 1/8000s or 1/4000s.
When using the hot shoe flash which doesn’ t support
hi-speed sync, the max sync speed is 1/250s or lower.
- About Automatic Saving Function
The transceiver will auto saving the sets such as
channel, receiving group, AF assist beam. The exposure
compensation and flash output will not be saved.
1. Fail to power on or automatic shutdown:
e The battery is loaded inversely or exhausted; it will power
off automatically when the battery is going to be
exhausted in case of being over discharged.
A Install the battery according to the correct direction the
battery compartment indicates and ensure the battery is
full and restart the power (refer to page 6).
2. The flash doesn't fire
Ensure the power of all equipments are full, the
connection among the transceiver, camera and the flash
IS reliable; whether the indicator is set in the same
channels and controllable groups. Flashes recycle
process, entering in the state of overheating protection,
ongoing zoom adjustment, the flash enters into sleep
status etc. may makes the flash doesn't fire . Ensure the
flash is in ready state, use the [TEST/-] button test the
flash before using.
3.i-TTLunderexposure or overexposure:
Check whether the camera body or the flash set
compensation setting.It may be underexpose if exceeds
the flashing effect distance . It may overexposure when
TTL and manual flash are used at the same time, now the
manual flash suits to be used as a backlight.
% Itis suggested using the following procedures to
deal with when other trouble occur during the using:
1). Restart all the equipments.
2). Replace the batteries of the transceivers.
3). Reset the factory set of the transceivers.
4). Reset the factory set of the camera/flash.
