In Topic: air filled dome diffuser

Dear Hedwig, thanks for sharing your test results. How about user-friendliness of this air-filled diffuser? Does it attach easily to your Z240 and maintain a good air seal?

Asking price reduced to EUR 200 OBO (or GBP, USD or HKD equivalent) + shipping from Hong Kong.

From what I can understand of Hong Kong retailers description, the main differentiators are buoyancy and less reduction in flash intensity. Can't be sure there's much difference in beam angle, beam softness, or uniformity of beam compared to regular dome diffusers. Hoping someone will publish a review/comparison before long.

It seems my DP-FE is a type 2 or "early" type 3 which is why the adapter doesn't fit. Subal have proposed a not inexpensive solution which is that we replace the plate behind the dome to a new type 4 plate. Much cheaper than buying a new or secondhand DP. All my ports will then be type 4 with only my DP-100/3 requiring the adapter.


Having already gone off topic, I'll say this about the ND500... the button labels are tiny! Do you know anyone who makes bigger housing label decals?

Yup, but it's gonna be a while before I properly test it out. Meanwhile I need to sort a few things out. A bayonet adapter connects my type-3 DP-100 and type-3 EXR-40 to the type-4 ND500, but oddly it won't fit my type-3 DP-FE which i really don't want to have to replace.


Build quality and ergonomics look good so far. Vacuum pump works and housing seems airtight, so that's a good start!
