I have a couple lying around that I am not using, PM me if you are still looking for some! 

As the title says. All I have is the ball mount, would like the YS fitting. I'm in US ZIP 22304.

Sure, see attached! These are some pics I took with that setup (I didn't have the video lights attached) during a freediving trip two weeks ago off Lone Point in Santa Catalina island. I am still very new to photography in general, so I'm sure there could have been things I could have done better. 

 


Uploader won't let me upload any files larger than 1000kb so sample pics were cut out

I ended up getting a used YS-D2 and it has been  great, took it diving several times and fired hundreds of times (300+). Compact and powerful, though I think the Z330 has the same footprint, if not smaller. I ended up getting a double armed tray (off amazon, really basic) with 1" ball mounts on either side for two video lights while the strobe is mounted on the cold shoe on the PT-058 housing and couldn't be happier! 

I'm kind of curious myself. I just got my TG5 and Oly housing moving up from a GoPro. I'm bring my RGBlue Series 2 PC video light with me and I just purchases an INON z330 strobe. I liked the look of the YS-D2, but there are so many reports of issues and I'm only going to have one for a while. I'm getting a MIC21 tray and arms setup (local brand) which looks solid.

i debated some on getting a second video light, but it just wouldn't compare with a strobe. I have some friends who are doing quite well with one, and with the upgraded power and wide angle it should work well for me and I can add another if/when I ever decide I need one. Reading some of the posts on people downsizing I'm glad I didn't go with my E-M1 for now and put the money toward lighting.
