Inon S-2000 stopped functioning- to many flashes in a row!

20 March 2016 - 09:56 AM

I have 2 x S-2000 on my rig, and my wife one. On our recent trip to Asia, 2 of them failed suddenly on dives. First, one of mine stopped working, and a week later, my wifes gave up. Luckily a friend of ours had both an Z.240 and one S-2000, so we survived borrowing one....

 

I shipped both to Inon, Japan, for repair, and got a mail back, were they found out both PCB's vere "fried" due to too rapid firing sequences, with a PDF file describing the limitations. They offered to repair, and stated the cost.

I must admit I had never read this Operational Limitation document, but, from my EXIF data, I can not find that I have been shooting beyond the limit....so I think it's a bit unreasonable.

Just want to inform others that there is a limit....and enclose the document from Inon.

I am so far satisfied with Inon's service, and it is after all worth the repair, as new ones costs fairly more, and the 2 who failed have only been been used for 30 and 60 dives. They were both bought used, but was in very good condition, (one looked just like new, no visible scratches at all).

 

 


EM-10 Meikon housing and Oly 60mm?

16 April 2015 - 07:07 AM

Have anybody tried this housing? Curious if the 60 mm will fit, since there's no interchangeable port... I have read that the quality of this housings seems better now than when they first started making them.... and Meikon have also announced they will be looking into ports etc.in future housings,. There are already an aluminium housing available for Sony...

I own both a PM1 with Olympus housing, and a OMD-EM10, and since I mainly do macro the Meikon housing could be a very affordable solution. I'm not yet prepared to spend money for a Nauticam or Ikelite + additional ports, but using the 60mm is a must. A pity not being able to use the 9-18mm & my ZEN port, but since my wife and I have the same gear, we could swap.....
