On-Camera Flash Setting for Fiber Optic Trigger

06 January 2014 - 06:39 AM

I'd like some advice on power settings for my on-camera flash to trigger my strobes.  I have a Canon 7D in an Aquatica housing with two YS-D1s.  I want to minimize recycle time.  If I reduce the on-camera power, I'm thinking that even a low power flash will trigger my strobes.  If I have the strobes on TTL, I'm thinking that they will mimic the low power setting of the on-camera flash, so I should shoot manual.  Am I thinking of that right?  Any advice on this in general or how low I can/should go on the power of the on-camera flash would be appreciated.  Thanks.
