Backscatter is your expert resource on Sea & Sea YS-D1 strobes and flash systems for underwater photography. The YS-D1 has become one of our most popular underwater strobes due to its incredible output in such a small travel-friendly size. Please see our annual strobe review article to see how Sea & Sea YS-D1 came out on top in both power and size. Please call our expert lighting staff to discuss how to easily integrate the YS-D1 into your underwater camera system.
