Ahhh, sounds like cable problems. As Chris says, easy to sort..... fingers crossed.

Yeah, I can image. ARGH.


So, you know: the strobe fires; you know the camera flash fires; you know the light is being transmitted down the fibre optic cable (and it's not twisted or cracked); and you know the camera is activating the Nauticam flash trigger? Can you check the flash trigger with any other device?

Hey Rich


Ouch, how frustrating.


From your snagging list it sounds as though light is getting down the system so it may be a setting on the Z240 (I have a pair of them firing with fibre optics from a Nikon D800/Subal: no problem)


I don't have my gear nearby (it's about 3000 miles away) but have you tried the TTL settings on the Inon rather than FULL? 

In Topic: How long is Vacuum stable?

I like to take my time to get my system ready - but then, inevitably the dive guide says: last minute change of plan so macro not wide-angle. So it's a scramble. And that's why I really like the vacuum (Vivid). Pump it up and wait 20 mins. If it's still green, I'm happy......


I think I had a slight panic on my 3rd or 4th use when I don't think I had re-seated the vacuum release button on the Vivid quite correctly - and then got a red light after a few minutes of green. Worth watching that for sure.

I've got the Vivid vacuum system and once that is "secure" it certainly does not show a warning until the vacuum seal is released.


Can you remove any part of the housing when the yellow light flashes? If so the vacuum isn't working.
