    Hi can you answer a question?
    I shoot the strobe in to but control the power output.
    Is that actually doing anything or does Ttl override that.
    Thnx

    Here is a paraphrased quote from the YS-01 manual regarding the light control dial (page E-11)

    Light amount can be adjusted in 10 increments when the mode switch is set to the double or single lightning bolts. In DS-TTL mode you can micro-adjust (dimming only) the light amount.

    S2000 is what I had in mind when I mentioned "similar" above. I have a serious "problem" buying second hand though. Here in Greece customs can and usually do charge import duties for whatever comes from outside EU based on the price of the new item even for used/second hand items. Add to this shipping cost and buying second hand from the USA usually becomes more expensive than buying new one. I am looking though...
