I appear to be missing something; why would you want a ND filter for a strobe? Where no just turn it down. I am well aware of the value of a ND on a lens but struggling with the idea on the light. I appreciate I must be missing something obvious.

I have never had issues with overheating on any of my Z240s but I have problems with the silly push lock on the 1 or 2 preflash button. On a couple of my Inons this just doesn't hold and there is nothing more annoying than shooting away and discovering the button has popped and is out of sync and not firing when you want it to. That and the modelling light button just seem like bad design (I am always accidentally putting the modelling light on temporarily when I don't want to).


It is a real shame that they haven't taken this chance, as it will stop me buying the new version.

£400 not cheap enough? With the weak pound that has got to be the best bargain around. Any cheaper and it is not worth selling. It may as well be a back up.

The place that you are thinking of is the Underwater Studio is Basildon. Steve Warren used to hire it out with his own reef etc. A word of warning though, it is not cheap and without Steve you will probably need to bring reef.

You are far better finding a local private school that hires out their pool or joining a dive club that has a pool night.

The pool that I use in Surrey costs £23 ph which is probably less than 1/3 of the cost in Basildon.

There is also a technique where you reverse the strobes so that you are effectively firing them backwards. You then use the edge of the beam to light the subject, but not do not light the background.
