Have you looked at the combination of the SMC-1 (81201) and the SMC Multiplier (81211)? They were made to be stacked. This page has some comparison shots with SMC vs +10 and SMC + multiplier vs +10 + +5 stacked. http://www.uwphotogr...SubSee-Diopters

I own a pair of YS-D1 and they work fine on my EM1 since ~50 dives up to 1/320s.



In TTL mode or Manual? The sync problem only manifests itself in TTL mode.

To the left of the viewfinder/window is the LV button (a button with a TV looking image on it). It switches between the EVF and the LCD screen. When you press the Review button, if the image is displayed on the LCD, press the LV button and the image being reviewed will switch back and forth between the viewfinder and the LCD. When you press the Review button to exit, you may have to press the LV button the switch back to EVF mode.

In Topic: Sea&Sea YS-D1/YS-D2 Not Designed For High Speed Sync

I've found this problem with TTL, but it seems to be ok in manual. Did you try manual with them?




The strobes worked OK in manual mode. I should have added "TTL" to the title and original post. My intent with this thread was to call attention to the fact that the strobes not designed to sync above 1/200, so that anyone thinking about buying them would have a little more information to work with. It's not information that's readily availble.

I replied to the above note from Sea & Sea asking whether or not the new YS-D2 strobes are capable of "high Speed sync". The comeback was both suprising and disappointing:


Hello Bob,

I am sorry to inform you that the SEA&SEA YS-D2 will not sync in speeds higher than 1/200.

Thank you,

Bummer. I think I'll start a new thread providing this information so that folks won't have to stumble on by searching on a problem. It'll be right out there on it's own.
