Sea & Sea YS-D1 Optical Slave TTL with OMD EM5

18 February 2014 - 12:43 PM

Hey there,

I bought a new Sea & Sea YS-D1 strobe and a new fibre optical cable to use with my OMD EM5 and its Nauticam housing, but I am experiencing troubles getting a good exposure with the TTL. I am fine to shoot with manual but I bought the strobe hoping to be able to use the TTL for my macro work. I've followed all the posts on it and all the trouble-shooting, but I am still not achieving the results that can be achieved by manual settings. All the same I would really like to get it to work. I've tried adjusting the flash power from full to 1/64 as well as all the EV compensation and strobe positions and metering systems, I've got fully charged batteries and fast SD cards.

Any help would be highly appreciated as I am on a Red Sea trip right now and would love to get the TTL to work.
