  1. I recently upgraded my old Canon 7D setup to a Canon R5. I really enjoy using the new camera and the Nauticam housing, but I have problems with my two Inon z240 type 4 strobes. With my Canon 7D, I used the internal pop-up flash and fiber optic cables to trigger the strobes. I mostly used TTL, which I found worked very well with this setup and just dealing in the +/- exposure on the strobes. I use inon fiber optic cables. Since TTL worked quite well for me with the 7D, I thought it would be nice to still have that option with my new R5 setup, so I bought a Nauticam TTL flash trigger for Canon to trigger the strobes, But when I try shooting anything in TTL mode with the R5, I’m getting pretty underexposed images. The z240s are set to STTL, and the other dial to B (also tried increasing the strobe power by turning it counter clockwise) . The pre-flash button is in the out position. (I also tried the in position by that underexposes even more). It’s about 2-3 stops underexposed if using f16, but if I switch to f2.8, then they look somewhat better. Anyway, I got a little tired of fiddling around in the TTL mode, so I decided to try out using manual mode instead for the strobes. That sort of works, up to about 25% power (right dial between 11 and 8). If I move it to 11 (50% power), or set the flash to full then I get basically no flash output. (pre-flash button is in the in position). I tried the strobes again on my 7D and they are able to fire at high output in TTL mode, so the flash part is working fine. I googled around for this problem and found several old post describing corroded magnets in the pre-flash switch, which seem to precisely describe my problem in manual mode. (I can also mention that full dumb does actually not work on the 7D, I just never discovered until now). The strobes are 8 and 6 years old. https://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?/topic/48381-misbehaving-inon-strobe/ https://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?/topic/43696-z240-manual-problem/ So I have a couple of questions: Is there a TTL trigger that works well with the R5 and z240 strobes? Or does anybody have any suggestions on how to get the Nauticam one to work properly? Second question: If I bought a manual only flash trigger, would that allow my z240s to work properly in manual mode without the fix for the magnets? I could also try to fix the strobes, but I’m not exactly sure how to. I’m afraid of opening up the button and then not being able to close it properly again and then having no working strobes. I have tried sending the links to the forum posts to the shop where I bought the Inons, to see if they could fix them, but that didn’t seem like the case. Lastly, I could also buy new strobes, but I would rather not spend the money of those at the moment, if I can get the Inons to work again. Thanks in advance if anybody can offer any advice or insights
  2. G'day everyone! Firstly I would like to wish everyone to be safe wherever you might be. We all are aware about the world situation, and probably it doesn't really look to be the time to buy more underwater camera gear. I agree with that... ...however, if there is someone, between you all, who desire (or just thinking of) have a nice set up, for video and photo above and below the water... ...then should have a look at what I'm offering. You will be able to shoot UW picture (one strobe incl) and UW Video, for you self, for fun, for private or companies. Out of the Nauticam Housing, the GH5 provide excellent pictures (portrait or street or landscape), but the video settings and features are what makes GH5 special. I did use this Lumix+Nauticam system for the last 2 years, not very frequently, mainly because I had to use the rigs of companies I've worked for. I am about to spend less time in the ocean, and starting a new education in aerial shooting. Therefore I believe this incredible camera have better future in other hands. Selling the full gear together, not separate. The whole set is located in Cairns, Queensland, Australia Offers from AU$8500 please excl. shipping. Please feel free to request further details, info or better photos Now, about the set... GH5 is in pristine condition and have a X-Vario lens with it 12-35mm Camera+sensor+lens they all have been serviced less than a year ago. NA-GH5 housing might have lost a bit of original black paint coating, but it is perfectly working, never had a leak or a single issue. Vacuum system and the leak detector in full working order too. Housing has been serviced just over 6 months ago. Inon Z240 strobe is perfectly working. You'll find the list of parts below, but, before that, I want to remark that, this set up is ready to go for Video and Photo service, Underwater and Dry. I've learnt to film in Natural Light, and I still believe is the best way to show real colours Simply using the white balance and a decent colour correction software you can provide a real memory of the experience. As dry shots, probably is what this camera is made for...I've been shooting video and photos from promo video for professionals or clubs, to wedding or private photo-shootings. This camera is exceptional and very adaptable. You can check some of my work clicking below https://www.instagram.com/theoceanlust/?hl=en So what you actually will get in the deal.. The whole set: Camera Lumix GH5 (with Camera strap) Battery charger 3 Original Panasonic batteries 12-35 mm X-Vario Lens (with Nauticam zoom + Focus gear) Flash Godox TT685 Mini flash trigger Gorillapod 15cm Nauticam NA-GH5 Housing (with Vacuum system and the leak detector) Hand pump Dome port for 12-35 lens (can send picture status of dome) Mounting ball set for tripod Double ball arms 3 x 300mm + 2 x 125mm 7 x Clamps Lanyard Inon Z240 strobe (with spare o-rings) Optic fiber cable 4 x Eneloop rechargeable AA batteries (brand new) Panasonic Charger Novus 1,2,3 polish for dome port 2x Spare batteries (for leak detector and Mini flash trigger) Nauticam and Inon silicon 3x Camera Sensor cleaners ....and the rigid case you'll need to carry all of the above.
