Hey folks,

I am starting to research what strobe to purchase for my fix housing and canon s100. I would like to keep my rig as compact as possible. I am liking the look of the Inon S2000. I do not have any wet lens at the moment but do intend to purchase in the future. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.

S2000 is a good choice if you are more of a macro shooter although if you ever dive in gloves, you’ll find the buttons very difficult to use. INON Z240 is the better choice in this case.

Yes, the s2000 and the tiny fix S100 Housing make a very small but useful rig but more suited for warm waters
due it's tiny size difficult to operate with thick gloves.
At least the D2000 and the Canon G11/G12 work perfectly together and the S100 is electronically identical with the G12.

Both the S2000 and the Z240 are excellent units.
You can also have a look at the Sea and Sea YSD1. Probably one of the most powerful strobes in that range, compact and very nicely built

I have both the S2000 and the YS01 (and most of the others too). For warm water the S2000 is the nicest option or if you are only shooting TTL then it is great here in California with drysuit and drygloves too. The YS01 is also nice, bigger buttons/knobs and works fine with the housing.

Canon 7d, Nauticam, Lots of glass, Olympus OMD-EM5, Nauticam, 60 macro, 45 macro, 8 mm fisheye, Inon, S&S, Athena Strobes plus lots of fiddly bits.
