In Topic: Need help with the TTL setup for Oly EM5 mk2 with dual ys-100a

19 December 2016 - 11:13 AM

You might try to cross-change the cables to see if one of them is responsible - I personally had severe TTL problems with my EM5 I and a YS110a until I changed from no-name to a genuine S&S fiber optic cable. From then on TTL was fine.

A dealer at the Boot exhibition told me that from customer feedback some Oly cams seem to be very sensitive concerning TTL. He said that in many cases the cables are responsible. On his advice I tried the S&S cable - et voila!

In Topic: Inon knob 3d printing - please help modifying

Did not know about Tinkercad - it is really not too complicated to use. I played around with it a little and could personalize the knobs, i.e. engrave my name on the top :-)


I had my knobs printed with "glow in the dark" pla. On 3dhubs.com a knob costs me around 3 EUR here in Germany, pla or abs. Do you think abs is a better choice?

Hi Brook,

maybe this the thingy you are looking for? :

(In the upper right corner you can switch between German and English)

You still will need your main strobe to trigger the remote one! (If you do not want that you will need a very long cable...) The remote strobe will have a cable to which the RSU is connected, The RSU needs to face your main strobe whereas the remote strobe can face any direction and/or can be hidden.

The triggerfish is/was a non-commercial DIY-solution. No idea about Seacam, but you could contact them.


In Topic: 3D Printed knob for Inon Z240

07 January 2016 - 02:57 PM



thanks for pointing me to 3dhubs - it is just the service I was looking for. Today I received my Inon knobs made of glow-i-the dark filament; they fit perfect.


Just a hint: When ordering these knobs it may be a good idea to ask for 100% fill (=solid). Seems that a standard fill is only 20%, so there might be the possibility that the knobs will crack or lose shape or whatever deep down. I was charged less than 20 cent extra per knobs.

Hi Mark,


understanding magnet in / out: Maybe this helps (another user confirmed the result for the S2000



I do not quite understand your settings; you are talking about a "pre-flash". If you use manual strobe mode on the Inon, the camera flash should be set to manual with 1/64th power, and there will be no pre-flash.
