YS-03 Solis flash unit #03125

YS-03 Solis
Product No. 03125

The YS-03 Solis underwater strobe is designed for the diver and snorkeler who wants better lighting and more colour in their pictures, than a standard compact camera can achieve underwater. The YS-03 Solis strobe is universal and can be used with any brand of underwater camera like Sea & Sea, Olympus, Canon, Sealife and Panasonic. This flash is intended for the underwater photographer who does not have much knowledge of underwater photography and also does not have the need to study it fully.

The automatic digital TTL program of the YS-03 Solis determines the amount of flash light needed for the shot based on the reflection of the subject and the power of the compact camera's internal flash. Therefore the underwater photographer can fully focus on the surroundings, the subject and the composition. And he doesn't have to study the technique of his flash. The power of the Sea & Sea YS-03 Solis is in its simplicity.

The Solis strobes from Sea & Sea are made with ultra-modern electronic components and equipped with the latest technological developments. The strobes are therefore fast, intelligent and reliable. The newly designed housing is strong and robust, but remains compact and lightweight.

The Sea & Sea YS-03 Solis is available as a separate flash unit, but also as a set with a camera mounting plate, a flexible, adjustable arm and an optical fibre cable for control.
