The YS-D2 sets a new standard for underwater strobes. The SEA&SEA YS-D2 Strobe offers exclusive features like no other strobe in the world. Keeping with the same great performance specs as the YS-D1, the YS-D2 has added audible confirmation providing TTL confirmation and ready light confirmation. The YS-D2 also features a rear glowing panel with easy to read controls: Ready/TTL-Fully Charged. The YS-D2 also features dual powered target light with red filter, wing nut style fixing bolt, new control knobs and a newly designed battery compartment. 

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-D2. Revising the algorithms used for the DS-TTL system, the YS-D2 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. 

The YS-D2 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. Powered by only four AA batteries, the YS-D2 offers a maximum light output of Guide Number 32. The YS-D2 suitable for macro photography, but also is robust enough for wide-angle photography. It is also ideal for macro photography which requires delicate light level control. The strobe's guide number can be reduced to 1. Highly versatile, the YS-D2 offers more automatic and manual control over lighting to get that perfect exposure. 

The YS-D2 is the world's first slave TTL strobe equipped with an exposure compensation (EV) control function. By controlling the actual flash light level, the strobe realizes accurate exposure compensation with EV value. Regardless of a compact or a SLR camera, you can achieve any desired exposure compensation. However, many TTL systems are not reliable. The YS-D2's DS-TTL exposure compensation function allows users to adjust the light level in TTL mode (-1.5EV, -1EV, -0.7EV, -0.3EV, +0.3EV, +0.7EV, +1EV, +1.5EV). A high-visibility three-colored LED indicator lamp is easy to read even during shooting. A red LED ready lamp will be shown when the strobe has been charged and is ready to fire. A green LED will be shown for two seconds to confirm DS-TTLll exposure. A blue LED will be shown when the strobe is set to Slave TTL mode and the strobe has been charged and is ready to fire. The YS-D2 is equipped with a function that automatically switches modes between slave and conventional sync cord or vice versa. 

The YS-D2 will auto-sense when a sync cord is connected, the slave ON/OFF switch will no longer be active. Simple controls and configuration enables easy operation. The light level control ratchets/clicks to aid in setting and operation. The strobes guide number on land (ISO 100/m) is 32, 24 with diffuser 100 and 20 with diffuser 120 attached. The strobe has a beam angle of 80°x 80° degrees (without diffuser), 100° x 100° degrees (with diffuser 100) and 120° x 120° degrees (with diffuser 120). The strobe can provide up to 150 flashes when powered by AA batteries with a recycle time of 2.8 seconds. The strobe has a color temperature of 5600K and when used with a diffuser 5250K. The YS-D2 Strobe is depth rated to 330' (200 meters), measures approximately (W x H x D) 3.5" x 5.4" x 4.4" (87mm x 135mm x 111mm), weighs approximately 22.8oz (650g) without batteries and is negatively buoyant 0.4oz (5g) underwater. The Strobe comes with Diffusers, YS Mount Adapter, Silicone Grease, Ball Mount Adapter, Fixing Bolt, Hex Wrench, Spare Cap Bolt and Owner's Manual. 

If you want to add lighting capabilities to your compact digital underwater photographs then you need a platform to mount a strobe or light. This Sea Arm 8 Set is what you are looking for. Set consists of the following items: 

Sea & Sea start with the SSSA8CT Sea Arm 8 Camera Tray and Grip which is compatible with most compact camera housings on the market. To support your strobe or light the SSSA8DBAS Sea Arm 8 5" Double Ball Arm, SSSA8FAB Sea Arm 8 Fixed Arm Base Attaches to the Extra Grip or the Camera Tray Adaptor and holds a Double Ball, to allow maneuvering your light for that perfect angle the SSSA8BCS Sea Arm 8 Ball Clamp Single is used to hold two ball joints together. Used to mount a YS series strobe the SSSA8SHS Sea Arm 8 Strobe Head Small completes the set. All parts are constructed from corrosion resistant anodized aluminum alloy with rubber gaskets, stainless steel and brass hardware. The SA8 system is highly rigid and at the same time extremely lightweight at only 1.2 lb. (544.3 g). 

If you have a Sea & Sea Strobe and want to connect it to your compact digital camera via the on-camera flash the Sea & Sea Fiber Optics II Sync Cord is what you're looking for. The Sea & Sea Fiber Optic Cable II is a coiled sync cord to link an underwater strobe to your cameras waterproof housing. It is compatible with all Sea & Sea strobes and housings. It allows your strobe to be triggered by your cameras built-in flash. 

Its coiled design allows for more length potential without tangling and to accommodate complete flexibility of all strobe angles. The cable is composed of methacrylic resin, which is a combination of 613 fibers. Compared with single fiber cables, the Fiber-Optic Cable II is more resistant to distortion, bending and physical impact. This allows for increased durability. The cable is also bi-directional and is designed for use with internal optical YS-converters. Cable is 18" (45.7cm) in length. The fiber diameter is 0.059" (1.5mm) and the cable diameter is 0.105" (2.7mm). 

This 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.
