    Thanks
    Hi Walt;

    Just so I'm clear... You have a Godox transmitter attached to your camera and a Godox receiver attached to the Yongnuo flash, correct? Because you need to have compatibility between the transmitter and the trigger. You can use the Godox wireless system to fire any Nikon compatible flash, but you can't mix brands of transmitters and receivers since each brand speaks its own wireless language.

    No, That is not the case. I don't have the Godox receiver. I was trying to fire the Yongnu 568, built in receiver, with the Godox Pro Transmitter. As you stated, they apparently will not talk to each other. I guess I need to get a "translator." Ha!!!

    Yes, that's your issue. When it comes to off camera flash you have two link-chains to be considered: First is the camera/flash link-chain (which for us is Nikon) which deals with camera/flash settings (shutter speed, aperture, ISO, curtain synch, etc.)

    The other link-chain is the one that moves that camera/flash settings information from Point A (your camera) to the Point B (the off-camera flash unit(s)).

    Everything in the first link-chain needs to "speak" Nikon. Otherwise you have a communication breakdown.

    For the second link-chain, the one that moves the settings information from Point A to Point B, every link in this chain needs to speak the same language, whatever language that is; it can be Yongnuo, Godox or Nikon, as long as every link in the chain speaks that same language. Otherwise you have a communication breakdown.

    It's early here on the west coast, and I'm still working on my morning coffee, so I hope that helps to clarify things.

    @Horoscope Fish is this the receiver that Walt can use for his Yongnuo flashes?

    Re: Godox AD200

    OK a little update. Here is what I am working with right now. A YN 622 TX, a YN 622 Receiver (Transciever), the Flashpoint Pro TX and two AD200 flashpoint equivalents. I have not had a lot of time to experiment, but this is what I have tried so far. First I put the YN-622 Transceiver, because it had two hot shoe connections, on the camera and then the Flashpoint Pro transmitter on top of that. It fired the YN 685 and the AD200 one time. Then the YN 622 lights started going crazy. Turn it off and back on and it would fire one time. That's not something that will work. Then I realized that the YN 685n doesn't have the optical trigger function. I guess I never noticed it as I always used radio trigger to fire it with it's built in receiver. The YN 622 TX only has the one hot shoe connector for putting on top of the camera so it cannot be piggy backed with the Flashpoint TX. I have the YN 586 and it has optical trigger, so I can use it with the limitations of line of sight and it works but it has to be set manually. No problem for my use for now. I'm not sure if this will work, but I do have the cord for connecting the YN 622 TX to the camera. I think it is for remote camera triggering, but maybe it can be used to fire that TX from the camera. Then I could use the Flashpoint TX on the hot shoe and the YN622 TX hanging from the cord. Does that sound like an option. Trying to get by without spending more money for now. Ha! I know the last option is to sell the Yongnu stuff and buy a Flashpoint hotshoe flash.

    It sounds like you have two, entirely separate, flash systems assembled: the YN 685 with 622 triggers and the Flashpoint AD200's with TX controller. If want to control all three flashes off-camera, I don't see how that's going to work with what you have. It appears to me the YN622's are superfluous because the 685 has wireless built-in as do the Flashpoint AD200's. The problem is the two different brands of flash, Yongnuo and Flashpoint, speak different wireless languages.

    If there is a workaround (either by using sync cords, a different Godox/Flashpoint trigger, piggy-backing or what have you) I can't tell you what it is. I think the simplest, and probably best answer is dumping the Yongnuo gear and getting a Godox/Flashpoint TT685. I know you're not looking to spend right now but that's my advice. It would leave you with a clean, wireless, three-flash, off-camera setup with a fair amount of power.

    I'm with Fish on this, Walt. Why spend $40 per receiver to make your Yongnuo flashes work when you can buy the Flashpoint equivalent of the TT687N for $95 each. The Flashpoint ones appear to be on sale for $15 off their regular price right now.

    There is the X2Tn trigger that will allow you to stack the YN flash on top of it. But I am thinking the TT685 will make you happier. I find it a lot easier to deal with than the Yongnu flash.
