    Very tempting. The extra power would be great for wide angle and any reduction in size is a plus. Glad they stayed with the AA's instead of going with a manufacturer specific battery as they did on the YS-250. Might have to consider selling my YS-110a's.

    I was cautioned on these great looking strobes to let people shoot them before i buy. They said because its a single lighting element they may be at a disadvantage to the 2 and 3 element units and not as powerful & wide when the diffusers were on. I was told a pair of YS-110a's might be better...
