  1. Appreciate this effort. Its just and correct. IMHO Diggy
  2. I think they are all very beautiful shots. Well done. Diggy
  3. all the very best. Its always a sad moment when one leaves the tropical blues.
  4. Definitely something I will watch out for TIM :-) Thank god the strobe was salvaged and fully functional. Diggy
  5. "The other thing I saw is that it is reported that eneloops do not like very low discharge currents like 50micro amps or something that some devices draw when in standby and that is reported to cuase leakag" The above is what had happened to my strobes long ago. Apparently they were on very low charge and the strobe recognised the signal as noise instead of a 'to fire' signal. Had to send them to Inon for replacement, which they promptly did. Although their explanation had room for clarity. Very well described Chris. Diggy
  6. Yes should work, but do check with them before ordering. Cheers, Diggy
  7. https://reefphoto.com/pages/search-results?q=Z240+magnets I think this is what you are looking for ?
  8. Dave try https://www.scubacam.com.sg They may be able to source these for you Diggy
  9. Its best not to keep batteries in strobes when not in use. There is always a chance of a leak. But if your question is non-used batteries for a few months, then its best to recharge all of them EQUALLY. This is important, cause if the batteries are not evenly charged they can send an incorrect signal to the strobe and create issues. I had such issues with the Z240's long back. Hope this helps Diggy
  10. Makes sense, Apologies Adam :-) Diggy
  11. This is a great set up Tony to begin with and gives you far more flexibility in the kind of shots you can get. And the sola would help with macro videos as this camera is a very capable macro shooter. The wide angle would also work in some situations, but two strobes with longer arms would help. Even one strobe works but positioning is important. And maybe you may just need a longer arm I feel. To get various kinds on shots with the strobe, such as a dark background, or with lots of contrast or to highlight a subjects hair (like a hairy frogfish) one has to get used to placing the strobes correctly. I would recommend looking for some tutorials online as also reading some books on underwater photography. Ex: Martin Edge's The Underwater Photographer. Good luck with your new system and do share images once you can jump in and get some. If there are any specific questions do post them here. Diggy
  12. Hi Tony, Thats a very capable camera in the right hands. And with external strobes, arms and added lenses can make some wonderful images. I had and still have and use the TG 4 occasionally. All the best and if your share what kind of accessories, this community will surely give you great input. Diggy
  13. OOPS my bad, But yes the oil is compatible as I have been using it for over 5 years now. thanks for the info and correction
  14. I have been using a nauticam housing for the 7D for a few years now. Each time after a dive trip it is soaked for close to 48 hours. Post that, heres where it gets interesting, I use a 100% silicone shock oil (something like this http://www.muchmoreracing.net/product_view.php?pidx=959 ) to grease all the buttons from the outside as also from INSIDE. Last year I had a bad leak and lost my camera and 100 mm lens, BUT GUESS WHAT, the salt water due to extensive and regular lubrication, did no damage inside at all. The grease kept the water out. Having learnt my lesson, post that I use a leak sentinel now. Just thought I should share this, as it really helps to keep your housing safe from the inside in case of a leak. Disclaimer: If the o rings (and they are usually not) are not the black ones for the buttons, please refrain from using. Diggy
  15. Yes exactly. I posted that one cause it was closest to what my eyes discerned in the video. The other two stargazers certainly.
