In Topic: LED Strobe Trigger For Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II

Ha! Yesterday I disassembled an old non-functional FL2 myself and wanted to post photos and the very same question as well. Funny. Hope someone can help.


In Topic: What to buy? INON Z240 or wait for the new release? Rental?

The Z240s are workhorses. With a new strobe, be it Inon or Retra, you never know if there will be problems in the first productions. Sea&Sea seems to be infamous for that kind of trouble...

 

Of course you can travel with your gear on Qantas - the question is if they will let you take it into the cabin!  :mocking:  From what I have heard (! - never flew with them) they seem to be very strict with the weight of your carry-on bag.


In Topic: Leak Sentinel V4 and Vacuum Valves

Maybe I need a new pair of glasses, but I cannot find any infos about the new vacuum pump on Miso's website; same for the price. 

 

Could someone help, please?

In Topic: YS-D1 problems

Did you swap the fiber-optic cables? As I wrote in a different thread, with my setup (E-M5 and 2*Z240 or 1*YS110a) the flash problems were caused by the cables.

In Topic: Strobes positionning for sharks ?

In his book "The Underwater Photographer" Martin Edge recommends to use Shutter priority ( if avoiding motion blur is important) or Aperture priority (if  high depth of filed is important) in a situation you describe - you will probably shoot at different angles, with the sun, with side lighting and against the sun. He says that with fully manual camera settings there is a chance that you miss the one or other shot because you fiddle with your camera.

 

Just a thought.
