This is our favorite strobe for the compact camera user, or beginner dSLR shooter. It's small, powerful, and has excellent TTL capability.
Almost everyone who buys a strobe has trouble learning how to use it properly. The Bluewater photo team won't let that happen to you - we know this strobe inside and out, and have tested it with dozens of various cameras. Call us at 310-633-5052 with any questions!
* This strobe does NOT include a ball mount, if you want a ball mount you'll need the Ultralight AD-SS
Don't forget to buy a spare tube of Sea & Sea's silicone grease.

See my review under the recSea rx100 housing.
I purchased this strobe to go along with my Canon S-100. It was recommended by Scott at Blue Water and I have been very pleased with how it works. I found Blue Water to be extremely helpful and definitely will go back for future underwater camera needs.
I couldn't be happier with this strobe on my s95. This is my first underwater camera rig and the YS-01 has done everything I've wanted it to. The focus light is great for night dives. The only negative is that the power knob is a bit tricky to turn with 3mm gloves on when shooting in manual, but it's not enough of an issue to affect my recommendation for the strobe.
i've yet to master the strobe flash for my photos, so i can't comment on how great the strobe can be, but i really like having the guide light. no need for an extra light on the setup!!
i've no issues with it. it recharges fast. it's bright. it's small!
i did however keep having a problem with the optic cable coming loose on my housing while diving. i would wonder why the strobe didn't fire, and notice the cable floating... this is probably more of an issue with the strobe mask set.
This strobe has improved my pictures immensely and reduced my post processing time on Photoshop to very little. I have shot for yrs with only the internal flash on my point and shoots. With a strobe, you have all the light you need to compose a shot in the nearfield. Scott is a great teacher and had me taking amazing shots right out of the gate.
I used this strobe very recently and was very pleased with it. Small, light, and quick recycle time- excellent piece of gear all around.
Bought this for my wife - so she's the one who should be writing this.
Great service from the guys at Blue Water.
Shipped into Singapore and delivered to my door.
Answered all my questions and more.
Thanks for everything Scott.
I have not yet tried this underwater. I use color correction lens and powerful video lights.
I realized I will need a strobe light to shot shark feeding photos of my family during our coming Aug 11th trip to Bahamas.
This review is to express my appreciation to Scott Gietler and Kelli Dickinson for their no-sales pressure and most importantly giving me a live Skype training to teach me how to use it with my camera and housing. Thank you guys.... I will provide another review re my photo results after my trip.
