In Topic: 45 degree viewfinder for Olympus Housing

26 July 2017 - 01:55 PM

You can look for Oly or aftermarket LCD covers/loupes that magnify the LCD image.  This can be a good substitute for a viewfinder.  They won't allow 45 degree viewing but are better than the naked LCD.

I don't think you can use a viewfinder with the Oly housing with its plastic back and non-removable eyepiece.  Have to use one of the higher end housings where the back has enough strength to support the viewfinder. ie Nauticam, Aquatica, Subal, Sea and Sea, etc.

In Topic: New INON strobe coming?

21 July 2017 - 09:27 AM

I ordered the Retra's a couple months ago--complete system (strobes, battery compartments, shark diffusers, LSD, light narrowing rings) and so far they look like a superb product and a substantial upgrade over either the 240 or ys-D1/2 from the beam shots they posted.  I am sure Inon will come up with a great product, but I am not going to look back, so long as the Retras prove to be reliable (little early adopter nervousness on that, but one of my ys-d1s died so instead of replacing just got the new system).

Oh, well.  It's a new venture, for a very expensive niche product, and I am fine that they want to keep their quality control strict as opposed to rushing them out.  I'll just soldier on with my YS D1 for another month . . .


Upside, maybe there is stiil time to order a second LSD at the discount price!

It was reported here on wetpixel a month or so ago that Inon is discontinuing the 240 and coming out with a replacement.  However, no searching I have done reveals any details about either the time frame or specs of whatever new strobe is in the works.
