FS: Pair of S&S YS-120TTL Pro Strobes, 2 unused sync cords (5 pin nikonos)

19 March 2014 - 02:53 PM



Looking to upgrade my topside system to the D7000 so I am selling my extra set of Sea & Sea YS-120TTL Pros and sync cords.  These things are absolute monsters, way too big for my needs recently which have been focused mainly on macro.  They are in very good shape and function perfectly.  I bought them used from a diver in Miami a while back and have treated these things like a child since I got them.  Never flooded, always rinsed in fresh water, O-rings cleaned and lubed after every dive.  I purchased a set of fiber optic plugs from Reef Photo so the stobes could be used as slaves with an L-type optical cord.  The only problem with one strobe was a small crack on the arm attachment point when I first received them, which I repaired with clear waterproof epoxy to prevent it from turning into a problem (repair not noticeable when on the system but I took a close up pic to show it anyways).  I originally bought two S&S nikonos style sync cords, long story short I ended up going with fiber optic trigger instead, so they have sat in the box brand new and have never hit water, let alone taken out of the plastic.  I tried to take as many pics as possible from all sides so you'll know what you're getting, these strobes have served me well and will be the perfect fit if you're looking for a very powerful set of strobes!


I am asking $1025 USD +ship (shouldn't be too much in the US) for the two strobes and 2 brand new sync cords as a set. Willing to consider reasonable offers, but this is a great deal for a set of such powerful strobes! 

places to kayak/swim to manatees in Crystal River, FL without boat?

10 March 2014 - 01:39 PM

Taking the girlfriend up to crystal river for the weekend to catch the end of the manatee season, I already booked a boat tour to snorkel with them but I was wondering if there was anyone in the area that knew a place where you could swim to them from shore without having to take a boat.  Still going to do the boat trip just figured it would be a fun thing to do the next day.  Thanks for the help!

Which Eneloops to use with ys-110a...2000mAh or 2500mAh?

09 March 2014 - 03:59 PM

Just picked up a pair of Sea & Sea YS-110a's but after some searching on the internet I know to buy Eneloop rechargeable batteries but I was confused with which power to pick up, I don't want to burn out the strobes or not maximize power output and recycle time.  Sorry if this has been asked before I just couldn't find it.  Thanks for the help! :)

Will S&S ys-120 do TTL using fiber optic cables?

11 December 2013 - 05:43 AM

Just curious if the Sea and Sea ys-120's TTL will work using a fiber optic cable attached to the optical sensor on the front.  I've been using it in slave mode and keeping it in manual settings but wasn't sure if I should try out TTL.  I shoot with an Oly E-PL1 so I usually just keep the flash setting on the lowest power (1/64) to save battery, im sure ide burn through battery faster if I were to use the TTL.
