This modification provides two 2-pin wired strobe connectors so you can connect two SEA&SEA YS-Series strobes.

Compatible with the VF45 1.2x
By attachment of a 45° viewfinder (view magnification of 1.2x) with Amici prisms to the eyepiece on the housing, the magnification increases to 1.2x, allowing the entire field of view to be seen clearly. Recommended for users committed to strict compositioning and focusing.

Manual adjustment is possible without releasing the grips
Designed for easy operation so you can comfortably reach the main dial and quick control dial with your fingers, while keeping your hands on the grips. Delicate operations are possible even while you are looking through the viewfinder. The larger diameter of frequently-used dials allows you to change the shutter speed or aperture value with a light touch while supporting the framing. This frees you, the photographer, to concentrate only on the perfect chance for a great picture.
