In Topic: Alternatives to Sea & Sea Fiber Optic Cables

03 February 2015 - 06:09 AM

Have a look on divervision.com I got some sea & sea type plugs for the strobe and a dual plug for my housing. I use some old cheap fibre optic cables. I have also used the cheap 2mm tos link cables. It's far cheaper and with a couple of spare plugs in the camera bag you can fix problems on the fly

In Topic: Tri-clamp with only two arms?

Fill the void with the focus light ball. Alternatively buy a spare ball adapter to fill the gap. Leave the light attached. Buy a normal clamp to replace. I would just leave the light there and use it. I always have a light on my rig, even when it's super light underwater. I don't know you're situation or conditions you dive in, I wouldn't leave an empty hole in the clamp I think you will stress it

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

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.
