Coordination of J1 with Sea & Sea YS-02 Flash is Useless
This camera, the J1 in the Nikon Housing, does not coordinates the camera with the Sea&Sea YS 02 Strobe, basically it fires the flash before the courtain or shutter opens, the pictures come out as if the flash never fired, although you see that it does. So think of it as a video housing, as a an underwater housing to take pictures using extra external flashes is useless.
I wasted my money here, as I already have a non-Nikon housing for the same camera that costs 5 times less and does everything this housing does.
You can try all the settings in the camera and the housing, the only one where the two coordinated the light out is setting the camera to Manual in rear window, the flash at 1/2 power (TTL or no TTL in the flash does not changes the problem), and the camera shutter at 1/6 sec or less, if you increase the shutter speed it does not works. All pictures come out dark.
I wish I never bought this housing and Nikon should inform buyers of this problem.
