Sea & Sea YS-D1 STROBE features
- This strobe will have a range of guide numbers from 1 to 32
- The beam angle is 80 degrees, and a 1-stop diffuser brings it to 100 degrees. We recommend using it with the 100 degree diffuser.
- With the 100 defree diffuser, it is up to +1 stop stronger than an Inon Z240, and +1 2/3rds stops stronger than the YS-110a.
- Roughly the size of the YS-110a, but has about 25% more power.
- Uses the new Sea & Sea DS-TTL II slave system. TTL works great with many cameras such as the Nikon D7000.

- The strobe has a built in LED modeling light, and features both a sync cord connection and a fiber optic connection.
- Recycle time is 1.9 seconds on full power, much less when slightly less than full power.
