Multi flash mode YN560-TX II not working?

Recommended Posts


just reading at the manual, I found out that my Yongnuo YN560-TXII controller, is supporting "Multi Flash Frequency & Flash count". Strobo flash photography is a new technique to me, so I wanted to have a go to learn something new.
I then mounted it on top of my X-T3 and tried to do some strobo Off Camera Flash with it, paired with a YN660 speedlite, without success. When the flash gets triggered by the controller, it flashes only once.
When I press the "test" button on the speedlite it works correctly.
When I mount the speedlite directly on the camera hotshoe, the multi mode works correctly.

Is there anything I am missing or the multimode won't work through a controller (despite being available)?

Thank you.

What are the flash settings in the camera? Is the YN660 set to Master or Slave?

In order to make strobo exposures, the camera needs to know to open the shutter and when to do so. It sounds like the speedlite is communicating with the camera when directly mounted, but your controller may not be. I assume you are triggering by radio transmission. Have you tried to trigger with the EF-X8? You will need to set the speedlite to Slave. This will verify the camera at least speaks "Yonguo". Perhaps the camera and trigger are in conflict at some level.

I am having similar problems with my YN 560 mark 3 and mark 4 flashes, When set to Multi mode they fire as they should (in multi mode) when I press the test button on the gun. But when the 560 TX transmitter is set to fire the flashes I only get the one flash. The transmitter is communicating with the flashes and is in Multi mode. 

What am I (we) doing wrong??
