YONGNUO YN-622N-TX – Flash Controller for NIKON – Now Available!

YongNuo have released the long awaited YN-622N-TX Flash Controller for Nikon, and they are available now from around $40.

The YN-622N-TX transmitter acts as a master control unit to the popular YN-622N ITTL and Remote Manual transceivers, providing more functions and a far more user friendly built-in LCD user interface.

Also adding a USB port for firmware updates, which is major advantage over the current triggers. The improved YN-622N-TX also enhances stability, as well as improving information transmission speeds.


YongNuo YN-622N-TX


  • 3 Groups
  • Mix TTL, Remote Manual, and SuperSync Groups
  • Individual 1/3rd stop Manual Power and FEC adjustment

YongNuo YN-622N-TX


The ability to mix TTL and Manual groups is a major advancement, and puts the YN-622-TX up there with the Phottix Odin and Pixel King Pro for functionality.

Improved stability and transmission speed is another upgrade, and should also help with the Nikon SB-800 flash, which has had some issues with the YN-622N previously due to its slower processing speeds than later Nikon flashes.

SuperSync Manual Timing Adjustment by Group is another significant new feature, allowing different studio lights to be used together at sync speeds above the camera X-sync.


The YN-622N-TX includes both N1 and N3 shutter release cables –

  • 1 x LS-2.5/N1 Shutter Connecting Cable
  • 1 x LS-2.5/N3 Shutter Connecting Cable

    I see that a firmware update (1.6) is available for download for the YN-622N controller, How would I find out what changed?

  2. Andy Maturana 6 years ago

    Hi!, Does anyone know if the YN-568 for Nikon requires a YN-622N attached as receiver?

    Thank you very much.

      Hi Andy,

      Yes they require a receiver. There are no flashes with YN-622N or YN-662C receivers built in at this stage.

  3. Andy Maturana 6 years ago

    Thank you very much for taking your time and answer mi last quedaron! I hace another question, I own the YN 568 EX for Nikon, Is there a Transmitter that can shot me flash without a receiver? Thank you very much!

      Hi Andy,

      The YN-568EX does not have any radio receiver built in at all. So there is no radio transmitter which can fire the flash unless it has an external radio receiver attached.

      The YN-568EX does have a few optic slave modes though, both for the Nikon Optic Wireless System (AWL / CLS) and basic manual optic slave modes S1 and S2.

      So a Nikon Optic Wireless master unit can fire and control the flash wirelessly, though this is more limited than using radio triggers. Many cameras can use their pop up flash as the master, or external SB-700 / SB-910 speedlites etc.

      S1 and S2 slave modes will fire when they see light from other flashes (possibly the on-cameras flash as trigger).

    Is it possible to use a trigger-type RF 603N with the controller 622 and invaded NY-565N?

  5. Adam 6 years ago

    Has anyone been able to fire an sb-400 with the yn-622n. I cant get mine to fire it

    • Sam 6 years ago

      Adam – I’ve tried that combo and it won’t work, and it’s not supported either so very doubtful you will get it to work 🙁

  6. Adam 6 years ago

    Well that is trash. Especially since all over the net the SB-400 is supposedly supported. No bother. I just ordered a 558ex to act as my third flash.

      Hi José,

      Sorry no I’m not sure, that doesn’t sound good though.

      Have you tried removing the batteries for a short time?

      If its switching on you may be able to try holding down the 2 center “clear” buttons to reset the trigger.

      Obviously make sure you have new batteries. Alkaline Energizer or Duracell are best.

    I have the 622c tx commander and the transcever 622c .. it is working ok on the ttl mode >> but I cant syc the manual … ie when i set a Group on manula mode, and set the commander on certain power >> say 1/8 …
    it is not syc with the reciever… How can i solve the problem?

    • Andy 6 years ago

      Hi J

      You must ensure that your flash is set to i-titl and that the flash is also set to auto zoom (Au).

      You should then be able to use your TX controller in manual to change both the exposure compensation and zoom setting on the flash.

      Hope this helps

      • Shep 5 years ago

        Thanks for the tip! I was about to get rid of my current flash set up but now I have control through the 622n.

  10. Rynstein 6 years ago

    Hi, nice website. I hav been using the yongnuo tx 622n for a little while with no problems but now it seems that my ad light no longer works? Is this a faulty issue or am I doing something wrong?..I have the camera on single af .. Also at the same time only one of my flashes will work in ttl.. The other will only fire in manual now..
    Anyone else hav these problems?

  11. Renato 6 years ago

    Can the YN 622 TX N be used for repeating flash? (I have a d800e and the camera can do repeating flash with one exposure if the built in flash is used at 1/8 power or less).
    Thank you!

  12. giovanni 6 years ago

    i have a nikon d810 and I’m using the yongnuo yn622n-tx as the remote for the top of my camera and I’m using the yongnuo yn 622n with a godox v860n flashes and they work perfectly fine but when i try to use the wireless flash controller thats on top of the camera to switch the power out burst of the flashes they won’t change it only works on ttl but not on manual please help me =)

  13. Amandeep 6 years ago

    I own a Nikon D750 and a Nikon SB700 flash. I am looking for a transceiver (Like the 622 TX) to control my flash wirelessly. I use the flash mostly in manual mode. I want to be able to control the power wirelessly and use the HSS to shoot at faster shutter speeds in the sun. Is there a way that I could do that using 622 TX and some receiver that I could mount the SB700 on. I was also interested in buying the YN 560 flashes as they come with built in receivers, which is really a cool feature but they don’t have HSS. Thanks in advance buddy.


    • Phil 6 years ago

      I don’t have the SB700, but I use HSS with the YN 622 triggers (transceivers) on my D750 and SB910. It works just fine.

  14. Steven 6 years ago

    I have a yongnuo yn560 iv. When I plug this into my hotshoe of the YN622N and set it up as a manual flash on the transmitter, Its still not triggering the light? Will it now work with the YN 560 IV even in manual mode? I thought it will trigger through the single pin of the hot shoe. Thank you for any advice.

    • Millzo 6 years ago

      Hey, I have a question about shooting multiple frames in a row and misfires.

      Holding the shutter down in Nikon Continuous Low Mode (5 exposures in a row)

      If I set the speedlights to TTL and set the manual power on the TX to 1/4 or 1/2, I will get 2 good exposures, one misfire, another good exposure then another misfire. Even when the lights misfire, I see the TX blink as if it sent the signal successfully.

      If I I set the flashes to Manual and control the power directly from the speedlights (so the triggers are now dummy triggers)… I can get 5 exposures in a row with no misfires.

      Does anyone know if this is because TTL uses more power and loses sync when it’s recycling or are there any other ideas?

      Thank you

      • Paul 5 years ago

        “Does anyone know if this is because TTL uses more power and loses sync when it’s recycling or are there any other ideas?”

        With the speedlite in TTL mode it probably does use more power because it will ALWAYS flash twice for each exposure — the first being a preflash. It will do this anytime the speedlite is set to TTL, even if the controller on the camera is set to manually control the speedlite’s output. The only way to prevent preflashes is to set the speedlite to manual mode (as opposed to TTL), but then you cannot change the speedlite’s output from the on-camera controller.

        I love my yongnuo 622n-TX setup (Nikon), and I even use them in conjunction with pocket wizards at times, but preflashes are a characteristic of Yongnuo’s TTL-compatible controllers, meaning there is no feature built-in to kill (quench) the preflash AND remotely control the speedlite’s output.

  15. Clint 5 years ago

    Hopefully this helps somebody…

    Here’s the solution I found to balance manual off-camera flash and ambient with a light meter, the YN568EX, and the YN-622N. We will separate the pre-flash from the regular flash, giving yourself time to only measure the regular flash:
    1. Set your ambient exposure (without flash) how you like (over 1/200 sec, of course). Remember your shutter speed.
    2. Program your light meter to your shutter speed and ISO settings for your ambient exposure.
    3. Set your flash to rear-curtain sync. (This puts the real flash at the very end of your exposure)
    4. Set your shutter speed to 5 seconds. (This separates the pre-flash and real flash by about 5 seconds).
    5. With any flash power, trigger an exposure. Take your flash meter reading off the second flash (the one at the end of the 5 seconds).
    6. Make the recommended adjustments to your flash power based on the light meter reading.
    7. Set the shutter speed back to what you determined at first. You might want to take your flash mode off of Rear Curtain sync. Take the shot.

    This is a little awkward, but it works with the D5300 (which doesn’t have FV lock or mirror lock up).

    Hi there,
    I was just sold the YN622N-TX and YN622N (x3) for use on a Nikon D4 & D750.
    The shop assistant who seemed very knowledgable told me they will all work, no problems and no limits.

    Now I have them home and the manual (hardcopy and online) says these cameras arent supported.

    Can anyone confirm this? If they arent compatible what features dont work?

  22. MARK REA 5 years ago

    Hi , I am using nikon d7000 with menu 320 auto fp set. and using yongnuo 622n-tx and one 622n on a nikon sb800, the problem is …..when shutter speeds are 320 or less the flash output is perfect eg. powerfull etc. but as soon as shutter ( camera in manual mode) is increased to only 450 the flash output is so weak and stays weak all the way to shutter 8000.
    The difference in flash output between 320 and even 400 shutter is sooooo much without changing any other settings on flash or camera apart from shutter speed.
    Is this normal? or is there some setting that I need to change somewhere ? either in camera or flash or 622n-tx or 622n transceiver ? kind regards Mark.

    • Author

      Hi Mark,

      Assuming you have the flash set to a manual power level (not TTL) then that’s normal for the flash power to drop a couple of stops in HSS.

      The idea is you should be opening the camera aperture equally at the same time as increasing the shutter speed, which allows for narrow depth of field portraits in bright ambient light.

      Unfortunately Nikon flashes drop the power even lower than Canon etc in HSS mode. That’s why the larger bare bulb etc strobes providing HSS are a popular alternative to speedlites having very limited power.

      I’m sorry I’m not familiar with this issue unfortunately. Hopefully someone else may have experienced this to help.

      • Ali Ghanty 4 years ago


        I have contacted Yongnou about the firmware update issue.
        First they sent me the firmware files (1.05 1.06 1.08) which i had already tested but in vain, they also asked me to try “several times”.
        The second email, they told me they don’t have any other firmware versions since i’ve asked them if a 1.01 exist and told me to try on a different pc and different cable.

        So i tried on a laptop with win 10 ( as compared to previous attempts on pc with win 7) and it actually worked.

        The trigger is working and firing the flashes with firmware 1.08

        What i conclude is maybe the software works better with win 10 than win 7

    hi, there. I have a d750 that i use with a sb700 and a pair of yn-622n and tx. I also have a pair of rf-603. can you please tell me what are the options in the market (yongnuo and godox) if i want to add 2 extra lights, that can be controlled using these transmitter/receivers and the sb700.?

    for example . for the back light , the godox/neewer tt560 will have any issues with any of these devices?
    would the yn 685 be a better option ?

    Can we use the YN 622N trigger/reciever system with studio strobes?

    • Author
      Flash Havoc 4 years ago

      Hi Floyd,

      At this stage all you can do is attach a YN-622N as receiver via PC sync cord to most studio strobes simply to fire them.

      There’s no remote control through the YN-622N-TX of power levels or any setting etc, though with some strobes you can use their own transmitter in hand to do that.

      YongNuo did try to introduce a YN-622 studio strobe (the YN300W), which actually provided very good TTL as well as remote manual power control etc. Though they failed badly because they had really bad color shift across the power range.

      And YongNuo have not released any flashes larger than speedlites since.

  32. Greg 2 years ago

    YN622-TX and YN565EX not compatible (which contradicts the claim of this webpage).

    A) I use both the D5100 and D5500 with YN622-TX (and YN622N and YN622N II) triggers with YN5655ex flash and found this is NOT compatible.

    B) I use the D5500 with YN622-TX (and YN622N and YN622N II) triggers with YN5658ex flash and found this is compatible.

    There are other cases of (Nikon) incompatibilities which leaves me cautious of buying Yongnuo again. (No feedback from Yongnuo Facebook site.)
