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° 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 exposer control with this strobe is easy, since it has a ten-level power dial located on the back.

The YS-02 is powered by 4-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.

      Comments about Sea & Sea YS-02 Strobe Head Only:

      This strobe is great!!!
      It's powerfull enough and will respond to your needs, even if you want, it is very usable in wide angle shots when coupled with a sibling...
      Use it, get familiar with it's capabilities and you will not need any sort of TTL or S-TTL strobe in 99,9% of the time, if ever. I'd only think of a more expensive powerfull model in the event of taking wide angle photos while beeing distant from the subject, and even so, I don't know...
