Subal TTL V3

17 January 2018 - 04:45 AM

There is a new TTL V3 board out for Nikon, see this:

 

http://www.subal.com..._V3_system.aspx

 

Also 2 new ones for Canon.

 

I am still waiting for my Subtronics, they are not on the list of working uw flash systems....But, in manual mode it is possible to change power level on the camera menu system. I was even told by Subal (under Version 2 already) that they can build a switch into one of the free housing plugs (M14 threaded holes; I have 4 of them: 2 for the flash bulks and 2 are free) to change the power level by turning the switch, thus keeping the hands on the housing, which is interesting IMO. Anybody has experience / seen this?

thanks.

Subal insolvent

01 January 2018 - 10:44 AM

I am hearing said new about Subal. They are bankrupt. insolvent. A continuation is unclear, production will be shifted entirely to Serbia. Service and warranty on current Subal gear is unclear. Pre-payments for ordered housing like ND850 are probably lost....

what a bull!

Nikon 14-24 on D810/850

02 October 2017 - 01:47 AM

I know there were discussions about the Nikon 14-24 behind a dome vs the 16-35. I am thinking to upgrade to the new D850 from my current D4s and eventually also from the 16-35 to the 14-24. I am using a large dome 9 inch / 230mm Subal DP-230.

Any useful information and actual experiences with similar setup e.g. on Nikon D810 welcome! Thanks
