  1. Now that it has been cleared that Z330 is fine for snooting, what is the better snoot? The Inon one or the Retra?
  2. Hi Adam, as mentioned by Tim G above with Z240 and I have seen it mentioned elsewhere on WP. Example, @Barmaglot mentioned in one of my posts that If that is not the case then it is much easier to make the decision and get the z330 with the snoot from Retra.
  3. The issue reported was that the modelling light didn't match the actual flash light hitting the subject, therefore becoming very difficult to get the offset right.
  4. Which LSD do you use with Z330? The misalignment is what has stopped me from buying the Z330s.
  5. In a similar situation here, though I was pretty set on the Z330 and then changed my mind after some advise from people here with first hand experience with the Retras. I was set on Retras but they have gone out of stock and may not come back at all? I am now back to the very beginning and thinking of getting the Z330. I am confused and it seems that Retra's not being available makes it easier to go with Z330s.
  6. Yes, I think the modelling light is in its favour. Retra has gone out of stock for the flashes
  7. Yes, I have been looking at the actual unit and it seems simple enough in the photo. It seems like a straight swap. I am wondering what the real world power difference is between the Retra prime and Pro, I understand that the Pro provides 50% more power, however how much of a difference does it really make? I have been reading an article in the underwaterjournal that talks about the prime being sufficient for both wide and macro shooting.
  8. Ok, thanks. I'm debating whether or not to get the trigger. As it requires a slight modification to the housing. However it does provide TTL and HSS.
  9. Yes, I'm debating whether to get the trigger or not. Do you know if TTL will funding with the Retra converter? Also, how often do people use HSS underwater? Is this a common thing or just the occasional one of shot?
  10. wow, that is kind of what I was expecting and something that I need to look at more closely. One thing that I have learnt is that not getting it right from the start will cost more in the long run, even though the initial cost of the right gear might be more. I am super curious about the Retra Pro with LSD now, and not sure if I need the UWT with my housing? It seems Retra sells the Retra E-Opto Sync Cord Converter. Or am I understanding this wrong?
  11. Snoot is something I would like to try with macro, however it is not something that I am into right now. I am still building my setup and trying to figure things out. I guess with experience and trial one might be able to figure out and offset the modelling light?
  12. Yes, there are no fibre optic ports and it is synchro only. I mentioned fibre optic if I were to get the ttl converter. The cost for the sync cord is around $200 AUD which is still less than the trigger but obviously trigger has the benefit of TTL and HSS, but the Inon flash don't support HSS so it is pointless. I will be fine with manual flash.
  13. Hi, I have got a Seafrogs housing for my Sony a7iii with 16-35mm F4 and the 6" dome port. I have ordered the Sony fe 90mm F2.8 as well. Now I need to get strobes, I was set on the Inon S2000 but they seem underpowered and I want to get it right from the beginning. I am thinking of getting two Inon Z330 because Retras are too expensive. If the recommendation will be the Inon, what should I do with the trigger? It seems the dual synchro cable is expensive vs fibre optic. However then the is turtle trigger option which is also expensive but somewhat a better solution. This lighting is confusing me and I am looking forward to your recommendation. Thanks
  14. Which bayonet mount or adapter do you use? Re point number 2, what is the reason for not changing the lens to use macro in the water? Is it because of the size of the lens or any other reason? What aperture do you use to get sharp images on the LX-10? Do you have to stop down to get sharper image? I have read and the Fantasea 09F has to be stopped down to get good results. Thanks
