Can anybody help me with this - I have replaced my old D7000 w the new D800 Nikon, just got it into the pool today. the housing is Nauticams NA800 - My sea & sea YS-01s are firing but appear to not be timed correctly . Nothing but dark pictures and am using tried and true settings from my old D7000 rig - Am I missing something in the setup of the 800 as far as syncing the strobes? - I don't remember doing anything special with the D7000 setup. Any help would be greatly appreciated

What was you camera setting when you shot? Were you manual or ttl flash? The more info you give use, the better someone maybe able to help.

Got it solved - you were right on it - The 800 was set to TTL and needed to be set to manual on the forced flash setting. Thanks for responding!
