Looking to improve my lighting of small subjects, I have made my own fibre snoot for my Inon Z-240. I got the idea from Rob White's www.marinepix.co.uk web site.

Details and photos on my blog (undersea-images.wordpress.com); improvement suggestions welcome.

Nice DIY setup ! Why didn't you use two fibers for the two flash tubes

of the Z-240 ?

Well, I didn't feel an especially strong need for two light sources. The black plastic which screws to the strobe face was made from a DVD spindle, so it had one hole.
