Off Camera Flash Questions
 
I have a Lumix FZ200 and Yongnuo YN622C flash trigger. I use the Yongnuo YN 560 IV flash In-Camera on the FZ200, manual mode. I want to use it off camera, not via optical slave but via flash trigger. I want to use the 622C but it will slide to the shoe midway only. Any suggestion how I can adapt the 622C, I do not want to buy another flash trigger if I can avoid it.

I have the FZ200 but do not use an external flash.
I try to avoid using pop up flash for close subjects ie. 3-5 ft as the lens hood creates a shadow.
Sorry I can't help with your Off camera flash question.

If it will at least slide midway, it does sound like it is made to fit. Is it possible there is any kind of spring-loaded pin on the hot shoe, or flash, that isn't retracting enough to allow full access?

Been tinkering with this idea and tried it. I removed the plate in the hot shoe and wiggle the trigger in slowly, it's a very tight fit. I can now fire the my other flash off this camera. Removing the trigger is not as bad, angle it up as it is coming out.
I am not affiliated with these triggers and flash!
