The website lists the popular strobes for DSLR users, and the popular strobes for compact digital users. The popular DSLR strobes tend to be the larger/more powerful strobes, and the compact digital strobes the smaller/less powerful. Is there a reason not to use the bigger strobes with a compact digital setup? From what I can tell, they are compatible. Is it overkill? Do compact digital users simply tend to be drawn to the smaller strobes because of size and cost?
Assume I have enough money for one larger/more powerful strobe, or two smaller/less powerful strobes. Is it better to have a single more powerful strobe, or two less powerful strobes. I expect it might depend upon the specific strobes. However, can anyone provide some general observations. For example, what about one Sea & Sea YS-110 versus two YS-60s?
I look forward to your insights.

I would rank the setups in the following order:
2 ys-01 strobes
2 ys-110a strobes
You can never have enough light underwater. Many compact shoots get the YS-110a for serious wide-angle, faster recycle time, or in case they upgrade the camera in the future.
hope that helps! Call me at 310-633-5052 if you have any more specific questions.
