Z240 -confusion!!

27 March 2009 - 09:50 AM

Hi acquired two Z-240 today , I cannot make head or tail of the manual ..I am shooting with a Canon 20D in Subal.I used to use Sea and Sea strobes on manual or two SB102 .Got the Inons as they are very small.

What setting do you use External auto (is this sorta similar to TTL in a way) or M0.5-6 (what is this) or full ?
Is there a way to switch the aiming light off completly ?

I feel really dumb asking these questions

With external auto it lseems that you set the strobes dial to the same f-stop as your camera reading? At what distance is this relevant?

Florida in April?

14 March 2009 - 06:54 AM

What is Florida like 30 march to 12 April , I guess it is too late for the manatees.
Is it spring break and what effect does it have.
I would like to combine some diving with relaxing probably around crystal river and a day to the Studios.
And my other favourite pass time some bass fishing.
Any suggestions/advice ?

Losing bulk, trimming down

11 September 2008 - 11:53 AM

Hi there
I am trimming down my dive gear , trying to be more streamlined , more compact and more comfortable underwater. I have dumped my drysuit and I am only using a Picasso 3mm for wam -temperate waters and a 5mm for Cold water 4- 9 degrees Celcius.

I have changed my cylindersders to a3l 5l 300bar, 7liter 300 bar .The 3l I mainly use to refill my airgun ,pressurize my Landy's tires and the 5litre for shallow dives as a easy jump off the boat solution.

I would like to minimize my BC , DV configuration. I feel the BC is a bit of a cumbersome piece of kit as I really don't use it for anything else than to hold the cylinder.

I have seen some real compact BC with integrated DV's in the press sometime ago- cannot recall the make ?
A spearo backpack like the effesub one that could accommodate a cylinder would be a real plus.
Any suggestions?
