It's not the pilot light that causes the backscatter. If you have the strobe aimed where the pilot light will work as a focus light that will cause backscatter.

I just love my YS-D1'2. There was a learning curve though, I wasn't use to that much power compared to my YS-110's.

Yes I use the 100 defuser all the time. i think it creates softer light.

no I do not use the pilot light, with your strobe pointed right at your subject is just begging for backscatter. So useless except as a back up light on a night dive.

I shoot Nikon, so no advise with your camera


I change batteries daily, usually 4 dives a day. Not sure how many shots that would be. I use Eneloop rechareables.

I've had mine for 3 years and dive 125-150 dives a year. No troubles yet.

How about, I think I need a new camera and housing, this one just sucks. I really enjoy taking photos but my gear sucks so bad I just don't know what I'm going to do. Then after a week of so goes by, well it wouldn't be so bad if I could at least see what I was shooting. I suppose a view finder would help that quite a bit, I probably wouldn't need a new camera if I could see what I was shooting with this one.
