In Topic: Yet another DIY fibresnoot

Well, I didn't feel an especially strong need for two light sources. The black plastic which screws to the strobe face was made from a DVD spindle, so it had one hole.

In Topic: Which Eneloops to use with ys-110a...2000mAh or 2500mAh?

18 March 2014 - 10:54 AM

I have sets of both the white 1800mAh and the black 2500mAh cells in my Inon Z-240s. They both last at least 4 dives for me. My intelligent charger often reports delivering over 2000mAh to the white ones if I run them flat (I usually change the batteries before they go flat). I bought lots of sets, because I use them in lots of other devices, as others have suggested.

In Topic: 60mm Macro lens with Dome Port

18 March 2014 - 01:24 AM

It's silly: the dome pushes small subjects away and makes them very difficult to light. Using a very large dome is optically similar to using a flat port.
...... I might bring a 60mm and use the same port to avoid carrying a macro port as my memory of the life on the wrecks suggests that the odd macro image would be interesting.


Hi Tim,

A couple of questions: what makes lighting harder when using this lens with a dome instead of flat? Why would using a longer lens be better in a tight space- my instinct was that the smaller the space, the wider the lens ought to be?
