Thanks DRP. Internet is nice way to find information but it also confuses us. Many opinions about magnets in or out with Inon flashes. So please more input because
I know some say keep the magnet in. I have bad results with magnet in. I am an amateur so very limited in knowledge I confess. So I would benefit of owner
of the same camera and flash share their experiences with me.
Or are Sea & Sea flashes easier to use???

I don't know if you have seen this from the Reef Photo website:
Maybe it'll help a bit?
Inon strobes are very good and it's worth persevering. They aren't hard to use but as the manuals aren't great, initial setup can be a bit of a challenge. But once you have them set, they're great.

A word of caution check all lenses as they may vignette choose only lenses to suit which will work for you and your rig especially for wide angle lense
Hope this helps

in general just about every camera will have a pre flash when running TTL flash on camera and no pre flash in manual flash on camera. The LX10 doesn't offer manual flash control so it'll pre flash every time and magnet is out.
You can still use manual flash on your external strobe , but in this case the camera is in auto flash and the S2000 is in manual flash. you can turn flash compensation right down when in manual on the S2000 to save battery and recycle time. So the camera will pre flash, the S2000 will ignore it and then flash at the manual setting on the main flash from the camera.

I’m confused on this topic as well. I bought a Panasonic LX10 and Nauticam housing with two Inon s2000 strobes. Looking at the reef photo article I should be checking if my lx-10 has a preflash? Then determining the magnet?
I just borrowed 1 then 2 S-2000's for use with an LX-10 for a trip. I was impressed with the system compared to my YS-90's and HW adapter (no great surprise). I shot entirely in TTL mode on the strobes, and cut the camera flash the max (-3?), as learning the new camera was enough of a challenge and I was happy with the results in general. The magnets were in, but based on the REEF write up (thanks for that link!) it doesn't effect TTL mode. Looking forward to trying some of the manual operation, but the TTL operation was pretty cool.
