The YS-02 Universal Lighting Package from Sea & Sea includes the YS-02 Compact Underwater Manual Strobe, a Grip Stay-S, fiber optic cable (L-Type), Mask Set, and a soft bag with foam. This pre-built package is suitable for any compact digital camera owner.

The YS-02 Underwater Compact Slave Strobe can be used for applications ranging from wide-angle to macro photography. It has a circular beam angle of 100 x 100° and a guide number control function of up to 20. You can use the YS-02 as a manual strobe with the guide number control function to set the light level to any of the ten available levels. The light level can be adjusted using the guide number controller.

The YS-02 Strobe is equipped with a pre-flash cancel mode that is compatible with a wide range of digital cameras equipped with a pre-flash. For a powerful and long-lasting strobe, you have 4 AA batteries so you can enjoy taking pictures all day long without having to recharge the batteries. The recycle time takes around 2 seconds with nickel-metal hydride batteries. The YS-02 Strobe is compatible with most compact digital cameras and digital SLR cameras and can be used both as a primary and a secondary strobe.

The Grip Stay is comprised of a tray and arm that can hold your camera with housing and a compact underwater strobe or a compact underwater video light.

The fiber-optic cable can be laced into the arm of the grip stay for easy operation. It is compatible with most compact digital camera housings and strobes.

The Mask Set includes a grommet, 2 strobe masks, and 2 hook and loop fastener tapes. Stick this tape to the underwater housing that covers the camera’s built-in flash. They can be cut off in accordance with the shape of the housing. This mask set can be connected to the fiber-optic cable.

The Soft Camera Bag is designed to carry most compact digital cameras and accessories.


  1. Some digital cameras adjust flash levels after the first pre-flash and then capture an image with a second main flash. The strobe’s pre-flash cancel function ignores the pre-flash and directly synchronizes the strobe with the main flash.
  2. Mask set compatibility depends on the model of the housing.
