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

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.
My husband and I went to Palau in March of this year, and I knew I needed to upgrade my underwater camera equipment. I have a Canon G11, and was previously shooting with the camera flash only. WHAT A DIFFERENCE THESE STROBES CAN MAKE!! I finally got the vibrant, beautiful colors I see in professional underwater photos. There is definitely a learning curve with positioning the lights correctly, and it takes some practice, but I had much fun doing so. These strobes are very easy to use and maintain - they held up well to seven days of continuous diving. And they are incredibly lightweight, which made them great for travel and packing. I love it when a product is everything you hope it will be, and these strobes are. Can't wait to use them again!
I ordered the dual strobe setup and have been thoroughly impressed. Lots of power even in such a small package.
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.
I decided to get a strobe for my canon G12 and there was lots of choices sure all are from great companies but i was looking for a kind of strobe to be small in size and powerful in the performance , I got one strobe of S&S ys-01 and it was a size of my hand and lite after testing that product underwater the storbe was really powerful even sometimes i needed to put the EXP control dial at min. and still getting strong light ... after 3 weeks of using that single strobe I was not able to resist myself not to get another one to have dual strobe set for canon G12
totally i recommend this product sea and sea YS-01
This flash is pretty good for close-up photos. It doesn't seem to have a long or wide range, so it's not ideal for things further away than 6'.
It's OK for video, but you have to "hold it" in the "on" position; it does not automatically come on and stay on for video. This is not great because it ties up both hands. It does result in good video, again, at less than 6' away.
It's a little convoluted to mount and you have to make sure it's on REALLY tight, but once you've got it hooked on, it works well.
I did a whole series of dives on Phuket, Thailand, in low-visibility areas and ended up with some good pictures using this flash so I'm happy with it.
This strobe is nothing like the old strobes (bigger & heavier) I was used to and what better place to have bought it at then Bluewater Photo. I really like the small size for traveling, its built rugged, has lots of options for controlling the flash and great recycle time. It works great with my Olympus 6020 and PT-048 housing and I know when I move up to another camera and housing that it will still do as excellent job as it does now!
The other good thing is that the guys & girls at Bluewater Photo are passionate about what they do and I know anytime I need help with something or suggestions they are there to help. How much better can it get!
This is my first strobe, purchased along w/a Canon S95 and Recsea housing. The unit was compact, easy to use the controls, and easy to maintain and change the batteries. The sync worked flawlessly and I could get two 1 hour dives out of a set of rechargeable batteries. I don't have much to compare it to, but I have no complaints and I took some awesome pictures with this set up (For a rookie!).
Scott and the staff @ Bluewater were excellent at listening to what we wanted, educating us about underwater photography and our options, and then setting us up with the perfect system for our needs. I can't say enough about the service we received.
