Sea & Sea YS-D2 Underwater Strobe SS-03117


Illuminate the underwater world in rich, natural color at depths up to 328' with the YS-D2 Underwater Strobe from Sea & Sea. It features a guide number of 104' / 32 m on land at ISO 100. This value changes to 65' with the supplied Diffuser 120 or 78' with the supplied Diffuser 100. The flash has a beam angle of 80 x 80°, which is widened to 100 x 100° when used with Diffuser-100 and 120 x 120° when used with Diffuser-120. A daylight-balanced color temperature of 5600K enables the strobe to restore colors absorbed underwater for more vibrant and accurate images.

Features of The Sea & Sea YS-D2 Underwater Strobe SS-03117

 

Guide Number

  • 104' / 32 m on land at ISO 100
  • Changes to 65' with the supplied Diffuser 120 or 78' with the supplied Diffuser 100

Coverage

  • Beam angle of 80 x 80°
  • Widened to 100 x 100° when used with Diffuser-100 and 120 x 120° when used with Diffuser-120
  • Diffusers help create soft, even light to reduce glare, backscatter, and hard shadows

Color Temperature

  • Daylight-balanced color temperature of 5600K enables the strobe to restore colors absorbed underwater for more vibrant and accurate images
  • With diffuser in place, color temperature is reduced to 5250K, which is still close to daylight-balanced

Target Light

  • Included LED target light with red filter helps you avoid disturbing the skittish sea life that is likely to be alarmed by normal light. It is fitted inside the diffusers
  • Target light's output is adjustable in 2 steps: 100-300 lumens
  • Automatically turns off when strobe fires and turns back on after 0.5 sec

Depth Rating

  • Safe for use at depths up to 328'
  • Features over-pressure relief valve

Controls, Modes, and Operation

  • Both TTL (DS-TTL and slave TTL) and manual flash exposure modes are available
  • Sea & Sea's DS-TTL II system has been improved, with an added function that stabilizes light emission by controlling voltage differences--so variability of intensity will not be evident during continuous firing
  • Accuracy of TTL exposure has been increased, and images are less likely to be overexposed
  • EV control function can fine-tune amount of light emitted. Exposure compensation range has been improved to +/- 2.0 EV: -2.0, -1.5, -1.0, -0.7, -0.3, +0.3, +0.7, +1.0, +1.5, +2.0
  • Custom function allows for compatibility with cameras that have non-standard pre-flash in DS-TTL and manual modes
  • Illuminated control panel for good visibility in dark conditions
  • Color of illumination changes to indicate mode: aqua blue for DS-TTL, blue for slave TTL, orange for manual pre-flash, and green for manual mode without pre-flash
  • Large knobs and magnetic rotary switch enable improved handling and fast operation, while helping to prevent accidental activation/deactivation

Power Source

  • Recycle time is about 1.5 sec with NiMH batteries
  • Flash features audible charge signal

Connectivity

  • Configured with a 5-pin sync cord connector and a fiber-optic port for connection to an underwater camera housing using an optional cable
  • Fiber-Optic Cable II from Sea & Sea is required to use DS-TTL ll function
