  1. Hi Guys, I have resolved the issue of the Anglerfish remote trigger not firing my strobe. It turns out all I needed was a new fibre optic cable, the one I was using was faulty. Yes, I feel like a bit of an idiot not checking this first. But it is always the simple things that are over looked. So the advice from Anglerfish saying it would not work with fibre optic cables and I had to install electronic sync cables was not the case. That just presented me with another problem as my YS-D2J would not fire when plugged into the sync cord. This issue still stands, but I am no longer chasing the answer to this as I no longer need the sync cords. I am going back to my fibre optics. Thanks for your input, appreciate it. Happy Diving Tash
  2. Yes, everything is in manual. And I have tried the strobe on the same bulkhead as the one the D2 is firing on. I too was surprised when I was told I couldn’t use fibre optic cables with the remote trigger. This certainly was not mentioned in the manual. Anglerfish reckon the Isotta flash trigger in my housing is too slow. I need to replace it with a proper electronic sync cable. This is when I bought the bulkheads which plug into the Isotta flash trigger and convert it to an electronic signal. I did do a test with my speed light on my camera and the anglerfish trigger. It fired every time with the speedlight. So I guess the Isotta flash trigger is too slow.
  3. Hi Chris, I am using my strobes in manual and I have tried that firing test. I found it didn’t work on either of the strobes. The notes did say it doesn’t work for the YS-D1 strobes so I figured it was maybe the same for the YS-D2?? I guess I could use the sync cable for my on camera strobe and the fibre optic on the remote trigger and strobe when I have it on a tri pod for macro snoot work. It just means I won’t be able to use it for any wide angle shots when I would prefer to have two strobes on camera. I have another strobe with fibre optic connection only which I was going to use with the remote trigger and then have my D2 strobes on my camera using the electronic cables.
  4. Hi everyone, I am hoping someone might be able to give me some suggestions with the following: Camera - Sony a7R3, Housing - Isotta, Strobes - YS-D2 & YS-D2J I bought an Anglerfish remote trigger last month and I found it was not triggering my strobe all the time (approx. 1 out of 10). I emailed Anglerfish and was told I was not able to use fibre optic cables on my main strobe. There would be too much delay having two triggers back to back. I was told to use electronic sync cables instead. Forked out more money and bought some Sea&Sea 5 pin sync cables and the bulkheads for my housing. I then found that the YS-D2J strobe would not fire via the electronic sync cable but the YS-D2 would. I tried both cables and I also tried a friends YS-D2J and had no success. Isotta said the D2 and D2J should signal the same and had no suggestions. I am still to receive feedback from Sea&Sea. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this or has any suggestions. Currently my options are to upgrade my strobes (which I can't really afford at the moment) or sell the remote trigger and not bother with it.
  5. Hi everyone, I am Tasha and live in Hobart, Tasmania (Australia for those of you who may not know where that is). I have been diving for about 10 years and really love underwater photography. I have recently upgraded from a compact camera to the Sony a7R3 in a Isotta housing. I am loving it, and learning something new each dive. Hopefully I can learn lots of tips and trick from everyone here.
