What camera or port is it for? Model number?

The link does not take us to the specific model.

Thanks

In Topic: 2nd strobe on Nauticam NA-EM5: Where to mount the strobe arm?

Not sure which strobes you have but the Inon S2000 are very compact.
I have the Inon D2000 strobes which are the same light output as the S2000 but are larger, more expensive and have more settings you probably won't use. If I was starting over, I would go with dual S2000 or 240's. The Inon 240 are twice as powerful on max but considerably larger, heavier, and more expensive.

I am shooting macro now and the smaller strobe bodies would be nice.

Does anyone use the Inon 240's on wide angle wrecks or do you use larger strobes?

I would get two of the same strobes. That way one does not overpower the other and leave a shadow.
Say you do find that magic setting on each strobe to give the same light output, but now you need to change one! Where do you set the other? I know strobes are expensive but I have never regretted going to twin Inon d2000 stobes and a Sola focus light. The quality of my pictures improved such that I won't even look at my pictures before I went to dual strobes.

Lots of great info there!
A friend used a simple piece of flat (1/8th inch thick?) aluminum bar stock from Home Depot. Drill four mounting holes and cut to length with a hacksaw. Drill one hole on each end for a vertical handle and two holes slightly left of the middle for the housing mounting thumb screws. I would round the ends of corners with a file too. Offset the center holes just enough to allow the use of the hand strap. All you have in the setup is two handles and a little work.

My ULCS extension doesn't give me room for my hand between the housing and the right handle.

I put two jumbo floats on each forward arm. They will barely fit. You must turn the arm a certain way to get the arms parallel for macro and to be able to turn the clamp handles. My two Inon +6 diopters a make the camera really heavy. But yes, they help!
Much more flotation and cheaper that the float arms. You need the large OD arms to get any flotation.
