    I have a XZ-1(PT-050) w/ S&S YS-01. I don't want to spend the extra $$$ for another YS-01, so what are the thoughts of adding the YS-02 as my 2nd strobe.

    ps-I would have bought the YS-02 instead of the YSD-01 in the first place however I didn't learn about the non TTL function until it was too late-argh.

    HI-
    The YS-02 would be suitable as a secondary strobe for the YS-D1. The specs are identical in regards to beam angle, power output/light level controls, and recycle time. The YS-02 just does not have the DS-TTL or focus light features.

    Excellent. That's what I'll get as my 2nd. I appreciate the quick response.

    wouldn't it be better off if you sell the YS-01 and then get 2 YS-02?

    Won't I need a dual synch cord also? Or does the second strobe flash w/o a synch cord?

    you would need another regular sync cords. The strobe has a second fiber optic port for daisy chaining multiple strobes.
