Return with us now to the golden days of silver halide!
These are my old reliable YS-50 strobes I used for many years with my Nik II.
You punk kids wouldn't know what I'm talking about but back in my day strobes gave a blast of light at one setting, didn't have no TTL, and couldn't figger what a fiber optic cable doodad was! It's true! If we wanted to change the light settings we'd move the strobe back n forth. Or change the shutter speed from 1/30 to 1/60.
These YS-50s never gave me a lick of trouble either, and still work great -- course I seviced 'em regular like, changing inner and user o-rings. And they was rubber o-rings too! Buna-N. Didn't need no special o-ring grease. Used bear fat once. Had SeaLoc connecters too, so's I could switch 'em from my Nik II to my Oceanic housing.
Gad. That Oceanic was a beast. Big n blue n proud! Won't see the like of her again.
Anyway, if you can use the daing things I'm willin' to let 'em go for $25 apiece. That's a strobe, with the new style battery door, n maybe a spare battery door o-ring. Maybe.
Hell, if you buy em both I'll throw in a perfectly good chassis in case one of em ever goes bad -- it's real easy to switch out, you just got to back off three little screws under them sticky tabs -- remember to drain the capacitor though, or you'll have lightnin bolts comin out your nose! -- plus an old style battery door, a dual connector -- you know you can unplug these things under water, don't ya? -- and a blood stained carryin bag with the word NIKON writ on it there real large so's all the thieves can see it.
Not sure? Well, alright. You think about it and let me know.
Hell, I almost forgot. You got to pay your own damn postage too! I ain't payin it for you! I'm not givin the government even the price of a stamp! I'm here in California n if that's too far away for you then just forget it!
