CONVERTS THE CAMERA'S HOT-SHOE TTL SIGNAL TO TRIGGER STROBES IN DS-TTL AND MANUAL MODES.
Optical YS Converter (mounted on the camera's hot-shoe inside the housing) converts camera's electronic TTL signal to a light signal which is transfered to your strobes via Fiber-Optic Cables*.
* SEA&SEA's Fiber-Optic Cable II must be used with an Optical YS Converter.
TTL and manual modes can be selected by pressing the mode switch on the housing.
Advantages of using the Optical YS Converter instead of the camera's built-in flash (or hardwiring via the bulkhead);
- Risk of water-ingress and flooding via the strobe bulkhead is eliminated.
- The camera's battery will last longer.
- External strobes will fire in accordance with their quickest recycle time.
- No inner reflections from camera's built-in flash.
- Compared with slave TTL, the Optical YS Converter achieves far greater accuracy in TTL exposure/output.
- Optical YS Converter is compatible with SLR cameras that do not have a built-in flash.
Controls: Power ON/OFF - TTL mode (blue lamp) / Manual mode (green lamp)
* Remaining battery level is indicated by flashing lamp.
Auto Power Off: The converter will automatically power off if the shutter lever or the mode switch is not activated for more than one hour.
* The converter can be re-activated by pressing the mode switch.
