Just curious if the Sea and Sea ys-120's TTL will work using a fiber optic cable attached to the optical sensor on the front.  I've been using it in slave mode and keeping it in manual settings but wasn't sure if I should try out TTL.  I shoot with an Oly E-PL1 so I usually just keep the flash setting on the lowest power (1/64) to save battery, im sure ide burn through battery faster if I were to use the TTL.

No, it can't.  Ds-TTL didn't come out till the YS110a.
