  1. hello any feedback on the new AOI UCS-Q1 strobe. https://www.aoi-uw.com/products/strobe-lights/aoi-ucs-q1-wht.html First strobe from AOI. How it compares with a Inon S2000 (for power. There are other differences, like no TTL, better batteries, ...) Thanks
  2. I use 3mm single core cables, with DIY Sea&Sea type plugs (TPU 3D print). Unbreakable, good flexibility, very good light transmission even at low strobe power and only a few euros for several meters... The only drawback I see is you cannot have L shape plugs, but this is not a problem on my setup
  3. Thanks Oskar I will try this configuration. 1/5 seconds should not be a serious limitation...
  4. Old post, but I have the same issue Oly EM1 mk2 with Retra ProX It seems that in 2nd curtain configuration, there is always a pre-flash, so it prevents using Manual mode on the flash side. (TTL on Retra is ok) Can someone please confirm same behaviour ? Thanks
  5. Today at "La Gravière du Fort", Alsace, France. Olympus EM1mkII and Olympus 8mm F1.8 fisheye. 1/160, f/10, iso 400 Picture taken from a depth of 10 meters. No crop. Will try to do more pictures when I will have time.
  6. Hello. Is snoot still available?. Do you have an estimation of shipping cost to France ? Thanks. François
  7. By looking at previous answers, I wonder if the focus light in YSD1 is strong enough to have the Retra LSD usable. Any actual experience ? Thanks
  8. Hi this post is a little bit old, but do you still sale "Nauticam Zoom Gear for Panasonic 12-35mm (Part #36148)" ? shipping to France. Thanks Francois
