    I would bet that they are the same flash except for the firmware. I have tried using the RC mode with my YS01 strobes and the results were not good.

    Rats, wish I'd checked this thread, that's exactly what I ended up buying.

    Thanks everyone, I ended up buying the YS-01, we will see how well it works - I'll be in Oki from 09/05-09/13 and I'm diving all day, every day. :)

    This is a pic of a dead wood louse on the bottom of my neighbor's pool taken with the TG-6 in the PT-59 housing with the YS-01 flash in RC mode. hahah. The wood louse's body is about 3mm across.

    I am curious. Which switch setting did you use on the YS-01 to put it into "rc" mode?

    “RC mode” is the mode setting on the camera when you’re using an external flash. On the flash, the corresponding setting is the “TTL” mode (turn leftmost control switch fully clockwise).
