In Topic: why buy in the UK

28 February 2011 - 08:06 AM

Unfortunately, your tale of woe doesn't surprise me at all!... It may be worth contacting Sea & Sea direct? Their base in Devon has always been really helpful....

I tried to buy a zoom gear at the weekend and phoned one of the, if not the biggest underwater camera stores in the UK to buy one. I got an answer that the other shop is closed and I will get them to call you on monday. The guy in the London shop could not even tell me if the other branch had it in stock. Anyway I had a look on their website and the website is a bit of a joke as well, they have their website and then you can enter their online store through their website. Trouble is they only have about a quarter of the items for sale on their online shop. Obviously not happy with this I wrote and explained that their website is rather poor. Today I got a response.

31109 Canon EF 17-40mm F4L USM Zoom Gear GBP 106.99 inc. VAT

Unfortunately we do not have the item in stock and as it is a sea and
sea item it may take a very
long time to come in possibly about 6 - 8 weeks
If you have any other questions please feel free to ask

Wait 6 - 8 weeks for a bloody zoom gear. THATS WHY I DONT SHOP IN THE UK

Great stuff, thanks for posting that. Respect, as you say, to the indie film makers like this!

Hi Stew,
Out of interest, which company did you find on the IOW?

In Topic: Inon Z240 strobe HELP!

You have the Sea & Sea MDX-D200? If so there should be 2 sync ports - one labeled "Converter" and one with no label? If this is the case, simply insert your sync cable into the non-labeled port which is the manual one. Use of the TTL insulating plate is not needed in your case.

TTL via electrical sync cable required 5 a 5-pin connection. Manual requires only 2. If a 5 pin connection is used when firing manually, the camera will lock up.

I've always used my 2 5 pin sea and sea sync chords with 2 sea and sea strobes with no problems.... maybe I shouldn't have read the INON manual?! Bit confused but the strobes are firing ok.
Thanks for the replies
