  1. Asking anyone who knows the technical details of the Inon Z240 strobe... Is the battery compartment watertight when the primary (watertight) cap is not on? I had an incident today diving salt water (ocean) where the cap became dislodged and the battery compartment flooded. While the batteries were of course destroyed, I flushed the battery compartment many times with fresh water, then soaked the strobe in fresh water and finally dried it completely. There seems to be no corrosion on the gold contacts inside the battery compartment, nor on the inner cap that holds the battery contact. Once fully dry I tested it and the strobe to be water-free and working fine, but I was still wondering if the technical specs for the Z240 indicate a sealed battery compartment. Sure seems like it to me. Thanks.
  2. Hi, I drowned one of my beloved Z240s last week and am now trying to locate a used replacement (type4 only). Is somebody out there keen for an upgrade and wants to sell their? I'm located in Norway. cheers, Peter
  3. hi guys, Reading at the issues experienced by others on some Inon Z240 type IV strobes, i was glad not to have experienced any problem with my 2 strobes bought in 2011. However during today's dive i noticed straight away that my left strobe wasn't producing as much light as the right one I trigger these strobes in manual mode both on same power, using Nauticam fiber optics, Nauticam housing on Nikon D500. I've done a number of tests after rincing the housing on dry land: -swapped the fiber optics, no change -changed the flash output settings, i.e. starting with both at EV-2 and then EV-4 -> my left strobe still was noticeably less powerful -and of course, i had made sure each time the pre-flash button was fully engaged To make sure i wasn't getting tricked by what i was shootting at, i just aimed my camera to a white wall, shot subsequently with left and then right flash, could clearly see the shift in the histograms/ This looks like my left strobe has just become overall less powerful, very strange! I had just changed batteries before that dive so i am wondering if it could explain the problem, but i do wait for the strobe's red ready light to turn on before i shoot. My question to the community: does anyone know what could be the cause of my issue? Any way to fix it myself? If it requires repair, does anyone have an idea of how long and how costly such a repair can be (i am in Sydney, Australia). thanks and merry Xmas to all! Nicolas
  4. Looking for used strobe Inon Z-240 type 4 in working condition from EU... And loking for carbon arm, clamp ... prefer Inon...BS-kinetics... Thanks Nikola
  5. Hello everyone, I would like to share with you some of my underwater photos, I just started my underwater photography journey, at the moment I'm in Koh Tao, Thailand doing my dive master and than IDC. I have a lot time for fun diving and to play with my camera. I would like to say big thank you to Tim and Shark Business for great equipment I bought off them. https://www.facebook.com/dive4lifee
  6. Hi guys, Do you have any information on strobes reliability (especially when comparing Inon Z240 vs Sea&Sea YSD2)? I have been using Inon Z240 for 6 years and never had any problems with it. I use optical cables and slave trigerring (with TTL), so cannot comment on electric trigerring, but I have even never heard of any malfunction related to optical trigerring on Inon Z240. From what I know, these strobes are very reliable. As there is improved control over exposure in case of new YSD2 (plus some other features), I sold my Inon Z240 to uprade to YSD2. But after browsing through the internet I found out, there is many complaints about poor reliability of Sea&Sea YSD2. It usually relates to overheating when firing more than 10 times at high setting "in a row". I usually don´t fire strobes at high setting 10 times in a row (as it is not even possible when using optical cables), but there were also other issues reported. New features are nice, but reliability comes first when going to an expensive diving trip, being engaged as UW photographer (taking photos of freediving champions for example).... I cannot afford any mulfanction in that case. So now I feel like selling my old but reliable Inon was maybe a mistake. Not sure whether to buy Sea&Sea YSD2 (as it features many improvements) or get back to old, but reliable Inon Z240. Many thanks for information / sharing experience with Sea&Sea YSD2.
  7. Hello, I'm looking to buy pair of strobes for D7000 (YS-D2, Inon z240, YS-D1, DS160) or say what you have. Europe only.
  8. There are very different views on the gudie number values underwater: some use a factor of 2, some even 4(!) to estimate underwater GN from land values. Which is correct for clean blue seawater or 50m vis pool? I suppose color temperature also has a significant effect here, the 4200-4800K strobes getting punished for their nice warm light... E.g how do the inon z240's compare to the subtronic novas in terms of underwater working distance? (iso, f-stop being the same) Coverage might be the cause of confusion here, "flat port" strobes, like the inons, squeeze their beam underwater, e.g. the 100°-s of the z240 becomes 70°, approximately doubling the power/surface ratio. I guess a factor of 2 is sufficient for "squeezed angle" strobes, factors of 3+are for dome-port units, like the subtronics, seacam.
  9. Hello, looking to sell my used pair of Inon Z240's in excellent working order for $1000. Can throw in Inon to Nauticam FO cables for an additional $100. Pics on request ...or stay tuned.
  10. Aloha - I have an extra Z240 strobe that has been sitting in my closet the past year that I'd like to sell.

  11. hello, i need a quick advice, since i have opportunity to get cheap used inons, but one of them is type 3 and other is type 4. are they "compatible"? can i use them as tween set without issues with strobe power? i assume that is not the issue in manual adjustment (is it?), but what happens with TTL shooting? thanks in advance
  12. Hi everyone, I unfortunately have a flooded Inon Z240 Type 4 for sale. Perhaps someone can use this for spare parts or fix it.

  17. Two novice questions.-----Can sTTL settings on a Z240 actually be even worth trying? I have a d800 with an optical cable for the housing. What flash settings would be the proper to use on the camera that would work well the Z20 strobe?
