Strobe Diffusers

10 September 2013 - 04:46 PM

Anybody have experience with the CM Diffusers by AquaTerraImagery?


I use Inon Z240 and often wonder if I may achieve better Edge (no pun intended Martin) lighting with a convex diffuser?


Inon only manufacture the flat diffusers, but I have just discovered the CM Diffuser at http://cmdiffusers.bigcartel.com

Extra Body and port Orings and other spares.
Extras include rubber port caps, Handle extensions both sides, clear filter kit for flash, Silicon grease and original packaging and manuals.

Ports are full alloy, with glass optical quality lenses.
Nexus Housings have a depth rating of 75m.

The wide angle lens and port were purchased new in 2011. This is a fantastic optical glass port and is ultra compact compared to many of the enormous domes you see in water.

I am not selling my strobes.

As it is, the housing is compatible with any TTL Fibreoptic strobe connections. There are 2 fibreoptic ports on this housing. TTL and the fibreoptic connection is an amazing system that has no electric connections thereby minimising the risk of flooding. The nexus housing is also suitable for standard Nikonos sync ports.

Inon make a fantastic 45deg viewfinder that attaches easily providing a FULL view of the frame even with a scuba mask on! I am not selling this.

Nexus make a fantastic product. I am selling only to upgrade to a Nexus housing for my Canon 5D. I will be staying with Nexus housings.

I would prefer to sell the housing as a complete kit, but will consider offers (eg without the camera or individual ports/lenses).

The kit is ready to use now, but will be fully complete with the addition of a strobe.

Will consider offers over $3500.

A search on the internet found a previously sold housing without the ports, lenses and camera for $2500. You will never buy such a package that is ready to go for such a low price.

I will happily offer ongoing advice on use, care and maintenance.

Postage will be at cost price depending on location and can be with or without insurance. Buyer's preference.
