Athena has announced a new ring flash unit which uses Sea & Sea flash heads as the power source. The ring flash can be connected to a modified Sea & Sea YS-01 or YS 110a via a five pin Nikonos type sync cord. The YS-110a flash head has two Nikonos ports so that more than one strobe can be used.
This new design has the ability to disconnect the ring flash from the sending unit for ease of packing. It also has the potential for use of TTL with both wired and fiber optic cords and a longer lasting power supply for the sending unit. There will be adapters available to suit different manufacturers ports.
