Today, 12:52 AM

I was able to get the test pair of Retra's that I had with me in Cayman and Cuba into the hand of lots of photographers this month. So hopefully you will start to hear some of their opinions soon and also see their photos. Alex

Saga make adaptors to use Nauticam (N120 type) ports on Subal type 4 housings - I am sure they must make a type 3 one too.

The ones I shot in Egypt were pre-production, but I think operating on full power. Although I never had a need to turn them up over 50% during my shoot.
