RF603cII + YN560III won't trigger help *neverending story*

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I need your help.

 

My recently bought RF603cII on xpro1 won't trigger my YN560III off camera. This looks like a neverending story to me, because a lot of people seem to be having issues with the trigger on their XP1s.

 

observations:

  • flash on the camera hot shoe fires no problem, test fire off camera no problem.
  • I have my YN and RF trigger on the same channel
  • flash is in RX mode
  • setting the trigger to RX mode and pressing the trigger test button the flash fires, pressing the shutter button on my XP1 does nothing
  • setting the trigger to TRX (presumably the correct mode), the test button on the trigger nor the shutter does not fire the flash
  • on the flash - a blue led is lit, meaning the YN and RF trigger are connected
  • when I try to fire the flash normally with the shutter button(or the test trigger button), the blue light flashes as if it were firing
  • on the RF only the right green LED is lit
  • it's exactly this one >> http://www.ebay.com/itm/Yongnuo-YN-560-III-Flash-With-RF-603-II-Single-Transceiver-Trigger-for-Canon-SLR-/121783769294
  • removing the spring plate on the hotshoe didn't work
  • using LCD/EVF/OVF doesn't make a difference

 

any ideas are really welcomed and appreciated!

I think these are Canon triggers - so they should work.  And yes, TRX mode is the right setting.

 

You need to make sure you are not in silent mode.

 

My triggers work with my X-E2 - not tried with an X-Pro 1

the camera is not in silent mode, I got confirmation it works on X-T1 as well, but just can't figure out why my xp1 won't cooperate... unfortunately I do not have access to any other XP1s to try it out

I use the Yongnou 560 with my XT1 and XT2 via their on-camera trigger system.  Mine are Nikon pins.  I have no experience with the XPro 1.  But I read somewhere that the Canon pin layout being different than the Nikon ... it can cause a problem.  I can't recall if it was pin location and not touching the connectors properly, or a voltage difference that may cause a problem.  I wonder if you got your hands on a Nikon Yongnou if you'd have the same problem?  Or ... get someone with the Nikon version and XPro 1 to give their experiences.

Hello, I am a new user. Based in Northumberland, UK

I am having similar problems.

On X-E2 Yongnuo RF-603c triggers work with generic flash (Jessops 360 afdc) however when I switch to X-T1 nothing!!!!

I have settings on commander and not on silent mode. Using the remotes as a shutter release no problems, its only when I attach the flash nothing happens.

any assistance would be gratefully received.

The problem is that YN603C (at least not mkii) stays in reception mode till it has logic one on one of the pins. I've soldered pull up resistor on it and my 603c works on my x-t2 now.

 

It's relatively  easy to fix, number of sources on youtube:

      Hi all,
      I have an issue with triggering off camera flash since I updated the FW of my X-T3 to version 3.20. The flash is only being triggered about 8 out of 10 times, which is very distracting and annoying. I tried with two different flash brands (GODOX trigger + flash, Elinchrom trigger + flash) and see the same problem. I have used the same set-up for about 30 shootings (at ~1000 shots per shooting) last year and never had this issue. I could now observe it during the two shootings I had after I upgraded to 3.20.
      The issue doesn't immediately occur. During the first shooting, it happened after about 3 hours. During the second shooting, it happened after about 1 hour. I use the X-T3 with the vertical grip and 3 original NP-W126S batteries. I was suspecting a battery issue during the first shooting and therefore ensured that they were fully charged for the second shooting but it did not solve the issue.
      Does anyone have experienced a similar issue? 
      Thanks and cheers

      Hello Everyone, 
      I just picked up an XT2 and this is my first Fuji camera, really excited about using it. I've been watching a lot of youtube videos and reading forum post to familiarize myself with the camera and its settings. I am very impressed by the film simulations but really confused on how to use them in conjunction with RAW files. I was under the impression that if I shoot RAW+JPEG(Fine/Norma) with a film simulation selected (e.g. Chrome). Simulation is applied to JPEG only and RAW file is pure raw without any processing that I can edit however I want in post processing. But I took the camera out for the first time and realized the film simulation is applied to both JPEG and RAW. Is there a way to shoot with film simulation applied to JPEG but get unprocessed RAW files from XT2? 
      Thanks for everyone's help in advance!

      I know that Fuji IBIS does work with Vintage lens but only 3 axis.
      I wonder is this work all 5 axis with VIltrox 85mm f/1.8 lens?
       
      Thank you very much, somebody please answer me!

      On my Xt3, this black bar appears on every video, in every card, in every DR range, every fps. Only on 1080p though, and when the lens is between 18 to 23. Hadn't noticed till now. Then i checked my old videos, and saw it there too. Firmware all latest. 
      lens: 18-55 xf 2.8 - 4.

      I received the trigger today and can't figure out how to hook it up. Pluto said to order cable for the XT-3, which is the E3 cable. But I can't find where to plug it into the camera. Anyone out there using this setup? Thank you in advance.!
