In Topic: one Inon Z240 producing less light

19 January 2018 - 01:25 PM

A pair of needle-nose pliers on the button shaft should do it. I purchased replacement buttons from an Inon dealer and simply screwed in a new button. I've also switched the focus light button across and lived without a focus light button instead. If you could purchase a little magnet to fit the space then you could also probably replace the magnet itself and glue a new one in.

Did you take the button off and take a look at the magnet?

In Topic: New Inon Z330

I have had quite a few questions about heating issues with the Z330.


Inon have added a metal heat sync that is exposed to the water.


I have been testing battery durations and have been firing the Z330 continuously for around 230-250 flashes at high power. The strobes have been immersed in room temperature water (around 15°C). The strobes have been cool to the touch throughout.


I should point out that I have been doing the same with the Retra Flash recently, and they have not been heating up either...


I'm very keen to hear more about overheating as it's a big problem with the Inon Z240s in tropical temperatures when you're doing full dumps repetitively (I'm shooting in caves so trying to light a very big space).


Adam: Are you able to do the continuous firing tests in 25 degrees C and 30 degrees C? 15 degree water is what I experience in Australia's Tank Cave. In Mexico the caves are 25-27 degrees C and that's a hot spot for cave diving photography.

Well, this is 7 months on from the original post. There look like a lot more photo credits there now. But I suspect they still don't have permission for the most part.

What's a marker strobe?
