YS-D1 Strobe
YS-D1 Strobe
Part #: SS-03114
List Price: $629.95

The YS-D1 Strobe sets a new standard for underwater strobes.  From subtle light output as low as guide number 1 to a maximum power of guide number 32, control of underwater lighting has become effortless with the YS-D1.

Revising the algorithms used for the DS-TTL system, the YS-D1 employs a totally new slave TTL system. The strobe can adjust the interval between the pre flash and the primary flash in order to be compatible with a wide-variety of cameras, if not all, on the market today. The strobe is equipped with DS-TTL ll mode which is more responsive, more precise and more reliable. The DS-TTL ll enables a variety of strobe sync photography such as slave TTL and slave manual (11 steps) with compact or digital SLR cameras. When used with a digital SLR camera in housing, the strobe can also be connected with a conventional sync cord and through a YS Converter for TTL strobe photography.  In a clear water environment, two YS-D1 strobes in DS-TTL ll mode provide perfect lighting.  When you would like to emphasize contrast, setting the main strobe in DS-TTL II mode and the secondary strobe in manual mode (11 steps) offers flexibility without limiting control.  When underwater visibility is poor, two YS-D1's set to manual mode may produce the best images. 
The YS-D1 is the most versatile underwater strobe available today.  The DS-TTL exposure compensation function enables subtle lighting control by adjusting the Light Level dial in DS-TTL mode.
