#287194 Inon 240 no manual control

Posted by chrispak1962 on 19 July 2011 - 02:46 AM in Lights, Strobes, and Lighting Technique

Hello Alcina,

I also had many problems with my Inon Flash, not because the flash did not work well but the change from flash brands made it difficult to understand for me. I ruined a holiday with it. I use a Nikon D90 and I have to put the settings on rear curtain in the camera or else I cannot control my flash in manual. :)

#285079 Inon Z 240 with Nikon D90

Posted by chrispak1962 on 21 June 2011 - 03:00 AM in Lights, Strobes, and Lighting Technique

Hello,

After a lot of reading and checking I think I found the answer for my problems.
But Inon makes everything to diffucult. Thanks to http://www.heinrichsweikamp.net
So I hope that I understand correctly???






Inon Z240 Manuel for Nikon D90 with TTL converter. Move switch1 into M (And choose power with Switch 2) or Full. This for for manuel. Manuel is only possible if you put the camera in Rear-Flash sync mode. If your camera does not fire a pre-flash, ACC must be disabled.

The Z-240 supports Nikonos V compatible TTL protocol via sync cable connection.
The setting of the Z-240 will be;
Main Dial => S-TTL
EV Control Dial => TTL (9 o’clock position)
Advanced Cancel Circuit Switch => Press and lock



#284938 Problems wit Inon Z240

Posted by chrispak1962 on 19 June 2011 - 01:14 AM in Lights, Strobes, and Lighting Technique

Hello Elmer,

I am using a TTL converter ( heinrich) with electrical sync cables? Can you tell me what flash setting you use? It’s for macro work so from 20 cm till about 100 cm distance.



#284856 Problems wit Inon Z240

Posted by chrispak1962 on 18 June 2011 - 03:19 AM in Lights, Strobes, and Lighting Technique

Hello,
I changed my Sea & Sea flash for a Inon Z240 and went on holiday to the Red Sea and only had troubles with the Inon. I changed for the TTL possibilities but it seems not to work. I asked around and some say that TTL with Inon does not work well. So I am thinking about changing back. Inon instructions are hard to understand.
The correct setting for TTL is according Inon this.

Main Dial => S-TTL

EV Control Dial => TTL (9 o'clock position)

Advanced Cancel Circuit Swit => Press and lock


And I had much advice from fellow photographers and sales people but everybody gave different advice.

So I am thinking about changing back. So please if there are people with good advice, share it.

#284019 Sea & Sea port on Hugyfot Housing

Posted by chrispak1962 on 08 June 2011 - 02:30 AM in Photography Gear and Technique

Hello Jack,

I am no expert but leakage can come from changing pressure from different dephts. So on the surface there is no problem, but after changing depths you can have a leakage due to changing pressure. What the Hugy Check did due to the pressure already in the house is to keep the leakage to a minimum. But again I am not a expert but I like the Hugyfot housing.



#284014 Sea & Sea port on Hugyfot Housing

Hello John,

No i think Hugyfot is nearly perfect. The problem with te port ex was my fault. The Hugycheck saved me.
kudos to Hugyfot



#284011 Sea & Sea port on Hugyfot Housing

Posted by chrispak1962 on 07 June 2011 - 11:57 PM in Photography Gear and Technique

Hello,

I have a Nikon D90 in a Hugyfot housing of course with the Hugy Check. I was on holiday and my alarm went off after 30 minutes of diving. I saw water in my housing but just a little bit. I went straight to the boat and opened my house and saw some water in my house. Dried it and everything was oke again. Did look good but could not see the problem and again on the second dive the same happened again. Again everything after drying was oke. Look closer and saw that of my port extension a piece was broken. Could not get the extension from the port some weeks before so I used a little bit of force and a little bit of plastic broke off. So always keep your ports and extensions greased well. I am not an expert but I think the Hugy Check saved me two times because of the inside pressure it keep leaking to a minimum.



#278705 Sigma 8-16

So if I am correct this means that nobody has the right dome and extension ring for this promising lens?????? ;)

Are there photographers who use the 8-16 mm Sigma underwater and can you show me some
