New S&S YS-D1 strobe - overheating problem?

13 March 2012 - 05:17 PM

Hmm... been doing a bit of research on the new Sea&Sea YS-D1 strobe. Although it looks good on paper (mostly), I was a little concerned by this line in the manual...

"CAUTION: If the full flash has been activated 10 times in a row, allow the product to rest for 10 minutes before attempting to use it again."

That suggests to me that the strobe has a tendency to overheat. Am I the only one that thinks this sounds very similar to the problem Nikon had with its SB900 slave gun? ie. they tried to pack too much power into too small a package.

The manual is here for those that want a read...

Nikon 60mm AF-S - compatible with NX Standard Flat Port?

01 March 2012 - 01:47 PM

Anyone know if the Nikon 60mm AF-S is compatible with the Sea&Sea Standard NX flat port (ie. the port with the rubber bumper front?). The S&S port table claims that you need to buy the compact macro port base (56201) + compact macro port S (56211) but from what I can see, there's no reason why the AF-S wouldn't happily work behind the NX Standard flat port (56101) - anyone tried it?
