Hi I am after some advise on the above camera housing.
I have the housing set up with twin Inon z220 strobes which don't fire. According to the housing it takes Inon z240's.
The advise I'm after is , do I need to change my strobes to those on the ROC system on the housing or can I use the Inon z220 strobes but need to change a few settings?
Also do I need to change any camera settings to those listed on the users manual.
I just need to fire the Inon z220 strobes, everything else works.
Nick

Hard to imagine (Impossible to imagine) that the z220 in manual mode won't work with the housing if the Z240 will work. It could be a sync cord problem, or a hotshoe connection problem; without some more info it is hard to say.
