Olympus O-MD E-M1 and Sea&Sea YS-D1 compatibility issues

23 July 2014 - 12:03 AM

Hi there sorry if this has came up before but can't get an answer so here goes.i use the olympus O-MD E-M1 camera and have just upgrades at the same time to sea&sea YS-D1 strobes now the strobes are new within last 4 months with all up to date firmware and camera is on latest 1.4 now shooting with f22 and fastest sync speed of 1/320 strobe on TTL and EV dial on zero shooting macro all is ok a bit over exposed but ok so when you adjust EV dial to compensate this is when camera and strobe goes out of sync if you go a little further in distance to subject say an extra 8" then you either get a pure dark photo or if you go say + 1.0 on EV dial you then catch the shutter half way so top of photo is dark bottom you can see picture this is a sync problem to eliminate the problem you then have to reduce shutter speed to 1/160 or lower.my YS110a do not have this problem anyone any suggestion or if you have same setup my hen please give it a go at same settings as above
