Updates to the very popular original YN-622C TTL triggers include quick release lever locking hotshoes, and most importantly USB ports for firmware updates.
As well as an easily selectable 560-RX mode, and slightly more flush mounted buttons.
The updated YN622C II will again provide an 560-RX communication mode, as we have already seen in the Version 1.2 YN-622C available since January 2015.
Though this 560-RX mode is now easily selectable via the units On / Off switch.
The 560-RX mode allows the Remote Manual YN560-TX to act as a transmitter unit to YN622C II as receivers, while providing remote manual power, and remote zoom control.
(The Manual YN560, and TTL YN622 systems where originally completely separate and incompatible systems. With this YongNuo are now working to slowly provide some compatibility between them).
Hardware updates to the YN622C II include the addition of quick release lever locking hotshoes.
As well as USB ports for firmware updates, and slightly more flush sitting Channel, Group, and Test buttons, which may be less prone to accidental changes.
The addition of a USB port to the YN622C II for firmware updates also now opens the possibility for new features and functions to be periodically added in the future.
(Though this added flexibility may also cast further doubt on the ability of other third party flash manufacturers to retain compatibility with the popular YongNuo system).
