The Sea & Sea YS-02 Entry-Level Lighting Package includes SS-03113 YS-02 Strobe, SS-CD-SET Compact Digital Tray & Flex Arm, SS-50107 Fiber Optic Cable, SS-50109 Mask Set. The Sea & Sea YS-02 is a compact slave strobe that can be used for wide-angle or macro photography. With its circular beam angle of 100 x 100 degrees and a guide number of up to 20, it is the perfect strobe for small Point & Shoot cameras or DSLRs. It is best to connect the strobe to the housing with a fiber optic cable. Manual exposure control with this strobe is easy, since it has a ten-level power dial located on the back.
The YS-02 is powered by four AA batteries. You can get up to 330 flashes at full power with NiMH batteries. With NiMH batteries you will get a blazing fast 1.9 second recycle time, so you will not miss all the action on the reef.
An external flash is your most important accessory. The ocean is one big, blue filter. As you descend, the reds and oranges quickly become muted shades of blue and gray. Using a color corrected strobe light will bring back your subject's natural color.
The Sea & Sea Fiber Optic L-Type Sync Cable is used to connect the built-in sensor on a Sea & Sea flash to a Sea & Sea housing with optical cable port. When the camera's internal flash fires the cable will fire the external flash. The L-shaped connectors resist bending and has improved light conducting efficiency.
The Sea & Sea Strobe Mask Set is used to attach the Sea & Sea Fiber Optic Cable to many manufacturers underwater housings. The mask blocks the on-camera flash from exposing your subject. This prevents back-scatter. The grommet allows the cable to be attached in front of the on-camera flash so the light will trigger your external strobe.
