Nice shots, Jack. Vis looks great there. Did you like Yap Caverns?

In Topic: New Inon Z330

That's great news! I wonder if they allow the same amount of light through as the first type of diffuser.

 

I'm curious to know Alex's opinon after trying these warmer diffusers, as the stock diffuser of the Z-330 seemed to be one of the main shortcomings he noticed when comparing the Inon directly against the Retra strobe,

I was quite shocked by the test results showing that the Inon Z-330s were brighter and wider beams than the Retras. I thought for sure the Retras would produce more/wider light but the tradeoff beign that Inon is a more established company with likely better customer service etc. Now that the test results came out I have to say I'm leaning toward Z-330 entirely now, as it apparently wins on price, performance and likely service.


In Topic: Subal insolvent

Subal ND850 configured and ordered to my needs. preferred shipment not later than in June, which is ok for me since I will not need it before September this year.

 

Hopefully it does arrive in time. I know it seems far out but keep in mind the ND850 was originally supposed to ship in mid-November of 2017. After missing not one but two trips waiting for it I finally broke down and got a Nauticam housing. I really wanted a Subal but the waiting game plus the uncertainty about the company's financial picture going forward finally forced me to bite the bullet and switch, which I really did not want to do.

 

Fortunately in the process I found that Nauticam makes a very nice adaptor that allows me to continue using all my existing Subal ports. I will probably move over to Nauticam branded ports when the time is right, but the adaptor makes the cost of switching a lot less painful at the time of buying the new housing. Best of luck to you m8!
