I finally got around making a prototype hot shoe optical trigger that fits my Sea & sea DX-G1 housing.
* A single 1ms flash pulse is provided by the camera in all modes - this means no eTTL. Only a single flash, no pre flashes. This is fine for me as I set the YS110 in "Manual2" and adjust power on the flash directly.
* On land, I got a hit rate of 10/10
I'll get back with more details as soon as I have verified results in water too.
The DX-G1 is painfully slow when handling raw-files, so I don't seem to shorten the time between shots. But the camera battery should last much longer, and I don't need to ducttape the housing to prevent back-scatter from the internal flash. It will be interesting to see if the hit rate of the YS110 gets better.

Aloha, I've been diving since 1994, and will hit 2,000 dives early next month. I've been hooked on diving, but honestly, am more hooked on diving while shooting uw photos!
