    I have a Nikon D800 with a Yongnuo 568EX HSS flash, a YN622N transceiver hooked up to the flash, and a YN622-N controller in the hotshoe.

    When I press down on the shutter button to take a picture, my flash fires off 3 times before syncing with the shutter on the 4th time. So it syncs with the firing of the flash on the fourth time but the flash fires off 3 times prior.

    I've reset all my devices and can't figure out why this is happening.

    This is not a new system for me, I've been using this setup for a couple of years now and have never had this happen before.

    Any advice?
    Thanks,
    Charles

    Do you have red-eye reduction enabled and/or is the flash set to "Commander" mode (if capable?)

    I thought that I read here on TPF just yesterday that the Yongnuo 568 flash unit was not fully compatible with the 622 triggering system. @Destin or @Braineack might know, or maybe it was @astroNikon

    yeah, that's sounds like red-eye mode.
