  1. 1) the cancel circuit switch is only active with electrical connection. No influence on optical connection. 2) The +1/4 is use in strobe on manual setting to slightly increase brightness in the resulting photo. I use 2 Z240 with my OMD they work great!!
  2. I got the Leak sentinel. The pictures you got from Vividhousing are probably from my rig. I just love seing that little blinking green led. Knowing that my OMD is safe:). Hearing the seal pop when you open the rear door of the housing is also reasuring. I'm going to the olympic stadium pool in Montreal (60' deep) next friday to test everything out. But so far so good.
  3. I just order a modified leak sentinel for the omd nauticam housing. I will do a review once I get it (10 days). Hugues
  4. Hi! I currently have a Canon S400 with a bonica slave strobe. I had a flood (MY FAULT) in a recent dive (it is at the repair shop right now). It takes great pictures, but now that I have more experience I would buy something else. The S400 is very compact, great during the dive. The macro is excellent. The casing includes a flash diffuser. You can access all the function while underwater. Disadvantage: Cannot add telephoto or wide angle on land. Cannot easily add converstion lens on the housing. Can't remove the preflash. I use my slave strobe using the FEL mode (flash exposure lock). You first shoot to set the FEL mode than wait for the strobe to recharge and than shoot the real picture. Long process but it works well. I even replace the flash diffuser on the housing with a mirror to make sure the strobe will detect the light from the camera internal flash. Now I'm looking for a digital camera that I can shoot RAw with and that will work automaticly with my strobe. Any suggestions? :?: Hugues

  6. Hello, I want to buy a Canon S400. But I also have a Bonica strobe (left from a flod on a Sea King from Bonica). I saw that you have a Bonica strobe and a Canon S50 (vlad). Is your Bonica firing on the preflash? Can you get rid of that preflash? This is the only point holding me back from buy this camera. Hugh Can way to get my hand on that camera!!!
