In Topic: Strobe not effective from <12inches

20 November 2015 - 01:24 PM

I don't believe TTL will work with Canon cameras set in manual. Try S, Av or Program modes. Otherwise use manual. At least that's the case for their compacts, might be different for DSLRs. The YS-100a won't work in TTL for several cameras like the Nikon 7000 series, etc.

In Topic: Anyone seen the new i-Divesite SS-2 strobe?

As it was shown to me. You'd shoot a shot at f2 or whatever and then tell it when the exposure was correct. Then it would figure out the other exposures. I might have this wrong, but that's what I came away with. Kind, sorta, but not really, like the Inon Auto mode.

It won't be available until probably mid next spring. It looks to be an interesting product and one that divers are asking for. It doesn't use TTL, but a "learned-auto" method, as well as manual modes.

In Topic: Problems with consistent flash firing with the Nauticam flash trigger

First thing I'd do is check your sync cords. We've found that the flash triggers need pretty good multistrand cords like the Nauticam ones. But hold one end up to the light and see if you see light at the other end, even when you wiggle it around. They usually break near the connectors.

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

No, you're right, generally it is the camera. The OP has brought up that the YS-D1 has issues syncing in TTL faster than about 1/200th of a sec. It does not affect manual use of the strobe.
