Does anyone have experience/knows the Subtronic Maxi and Mini strobes? I see an opportunity to pick up a pair 2nd hand. Since they are older models, I cannot find too much info on them, especially specs of the maxi.

 

How do they compare to the z240 in terms of:

- total weight?

- reliability?

- service demand (life of the flash tube? It is different than the 5500K units of Inon)?

- performance/GN under water?

 

I would also be interested, if the units can be converted to use AA-batteries, the battery arm is a good idea,

however a bit restrictive in case you want shorter arms.

Also I see it uses an electrical connection, is it possible to interface it to optical? (TTL or non-TTL)
