In Topic: Purchase decision: two S&S YS-110a's or one YS-D1?

15 January 2015 - 02:04 PM

I checked compatibility and S&S says that the TTL function is compatible with my EM5... any reason not to trust this?

No none at all just make sure you read the notes. I seem to remember that sometimes there is a note saying firmware upgrade needed. This is a major PITA don't bother.
Go with manual you'll have the hang of it in a couple of dives. Study strobe positioning then the power is easy to sort. I practiced at home in a dark bedroom and in varying light levels, if I couldn't go diving it gave me time to practice my skills

I would check the ttl compatibility on the sea and sea website. If your camera doesn't ttl with the 110a I would forget them and the ys01 and go with two ys02 and go manual. With the money you save get a decent focus light. The extra feature on the ys01 is the ttl and aiming light. You won't use that aiming light to aim strobes or as a focus light as it won't be pointed at the subject. I have a ys110a which does not ttl with my camera and I don't miss it at all. I am adding a ys02 next week.

Shutter speed will control the colour of the water

In Topic: Limited budget. Should I look for 2 1200 lumen lights or 1 2000+ lumen?

I have got a fit 1200 fsr and that's fairly decent. I would think the 2400 would be good also

In Topic: Is anyone selling a second hand strobe"

Ys02 on ebay for 148 brand new, it's from outside the UK but you might get away with the import duty. The ys01 is 223 from the same place. Type in underwater strobe in the search. 01 has a spotting light (no use) and has ttl. I have a YS 110a and I never use the ttl as manual is just as easy. If I had my time again I'd get a 02
