This one is pretty new on the market. Just wondering if anyone here has purchased one and what do they think? I have an Oly E-410 and use an Inon Z-240 strobe. Thanks.

Actually it's been out for a year or so. It works quite nicely with the newer Oly cameras offering quite accurate TTL with fiber optics and full control of the strobe from the camera set in "RC" mode. However with the 410 I believe you would need to use a hard-wired cable for TTL and you would have on-camera support.

It's made by Sea & Sea for Oly and is well-made. It's quite light in the water, really pretty floaty, especially compared to the 240z. However it's not nearly as powerful. Also it uses two AA batteries instead of 4.
