  1. Hi, I recently bought the Marelux SOFT snoot and am debating if I should return it for a set of backscatter MF-2 strobes and snoots so that I have the ability to do remote lighting. Has anyone tried to do remote lighting with any other strobes? (I think you would have to manually adjust strobe settings but several strobes have an optically triggered sensor. I just don’t know if it works well for macro) Can any strobe trigger the MF-2 remotely? Does anyone prefer to use video lights for backlighting/side lighting instead of strobes? On the other hand, has anyone used the SOFT and found that the ability to use the iris control to shape the light is far superior to the aperture cards used on most other snoots? Any other thoughts comparing the two snoots are also welcome. Thanks! Jill
  2. ***Comes in carrying case. $320 Marelux Smart Optical Flash Tube The Marelux Smart Optical Flash Tube (SOFT) is a revolutionary, new high-end snoot for underwater macro photography. It can be adapted to most modern strobes and features a built-in aiming light (that can shut off automatically when the strobe is fired), an adjustable iris/aperture, and a quick release mount. The focus point is 170mm from end of the tube. The light diameter can be adjusted from 2mm to 60mm. Key Features: Aiming Light - The Smart Optical Flash Tube comes with an 180 lumen aiming light which greatly helps you position your strobe to perfectly illuminate your subject. It also features an auto shut off when the strobe is fired. Aperture Adjustment - The aperture can be adjusted to your liking with the external dial. Battery - It uses the standard 18650 battery (length 67mm) which can power the light for 16hrs continuously. Carrying Case - The SOFT comes with a carrying case to protect it from dust, dirt & scratches when traveling.

  4. Selling new, unused Marelux SOFT snoot. Does not include strobe mount adaptor. These can be purchased separately from Bluewater Photo or another Marelux dealer. You would buy the mount style needed for your make of strobe. This comes with the hard shell case. 18650 battery not included. No defects. Decided to buy SOFT Pro for smaller size. Asking for $399 + buyer pays shipping.

  7. A steal at $120 + shipping! Original price $195.00 U.S. Great for those wanting to hone their macro skills. This snoot focuses the light from the strobe to focus on and highlight your subject, thereby masking out backgrounds. It is built from machined marine grade aluminum making it robust and durable. It comes with a diffuser and the snoot sections are removable to increase or decrease the beam of light. Two elastic lanyards attach both the strobe and the diffuser to your strobe mount. It has only been on 4 dives- I'm not going to get serious on macro after all as it is too rough where I live. This newest version of the 10bar snoot includes the laser aiming light, which is now located internally. This ensures that it is always centered, making it much easier to use. In addition, the snoot has now more segments and even a pointer end. See description below. Compatible Strobes: Sea & Sea YS-D1 & Sea & Sea YS-D1, D2, & D2J Inon Z-240 & Inon Z-330 Description: Red Laser Beam is Adjustable for Precise Aiming Laser will Shut Off Automatically when Flash is Fired Front Sections of Snoot Removable to Adjust for Light Source Size on Subject Laser Unit Powered by 3 x LR44 Button Cell (not included!) Rated to 90m / 300ft (Recommended working pressure 60m / 200 ft) Weight: 1.50 LBS Dimensions: 6.00 (in) × 6.00 (in) × 8.00 (in IMG_4615.HEIC IMG_4616.HEIC IMG_4617.HEIC IMG_4618.HEIC

  9. I find Yellowline Arrowcrabs just irresistible photo subjects. These were taken in either Bonaire or Sint Maarten usually with a snoot and a 60mm lens
  10. Have been thinking trying out macro photography using a snoot. Am currently using Inon strobes and like them, so I have been looking at the their snoot set. Seems simple enough to setup, but I don't see many reviews. If anyone has used the Inon snoot and can share their experiences, would appreciate hearing them. Thanks in advance.

  12. Almost new snoot for sale. It's been in the water only twice! I just found that snooting wasn't my cup of tea as I mostly shoot WA. Asking $400.
  13. I put a snoot on my YS-01. I love it, but struggle because the focus light on the YS-01 is so weak it does not penetrate the snoot. So I'm left guessing where to shoot.The problem is, I want it all.1) A decent strobe upgraded from the YS-01 that I can shoot with a snoot without the guessing of where the light will land. It needs to have a focus light that can penetrate the snoot. I'd love something more powerful to add to my photography equipment.2) The ability to take the snoot on/off so I can use the strobe as a strobe (The FlipSnoots are pretty cool for this)3) Affordable (Affordable is defined as <$700 ideally)Is it a pipe dream?And I know many of you are going to say Backscatter Mini Flash with Snoot, but I can't find the specs on it?I don't think it's any more powerful than my YS-01 so I struggle to drop the coin for upgrading to something with a focus light. I'd rather go all in on something that will upgrade both my strobe and snoot experience. Most of the time my focus is on not snooting, so I'd rather upgrade the strobe with the option to snoot (not the upgrade the snoot with the option to strobe)If there's something that is >$700 tell me about it so I can decide which kid to sell off. (It's a joke...maybe) I hear the Retra strobe is da bomb for a lot of $$$. My eyes have been looking at the inon z330 or Ikelite DS160, but I'm not sure of the snoot ability or focus light situation. TIA

  15. Folks I have for sale a Retra LSD snoot mount for the Inon Z240. A slightly unusual item, it's ideal for anyone who has a Retra LSD with a non-Inon Z240 mount but wants to switch to using the LSD on an Inon Z240 strobe. Cost is €49 plus shipping. PM me for more info
  16. Retra Snoot for Inon Z 240@ 200 euro Location: Switzerland
  17. Hi, It seems that the enthusiasm for a better/cheaper snoot never runs out. I usually find it hard to point the beam of light on the subject, and even a slow moving one escapes by the time I get it. So I wanted a light guide that will show were snoot actually points to. I tried the 10Bar laser focus and found it unreliable and inaccurate. I did design a version where the laser projected on the same line as the strobe using beam splitter. But the laser was annoying. Then I realized that the same design can work with a strong focus torch. The benefit is that I get to see the whole beam and that it is much brighter than the little red laser dot. Here is the result. It is a modular snoot that can either have a fixed head (at different beam diameters) or a fiber-optic attachment that can be manipulated by hand. An example of a photo made with this snoot. I had 12-50mm (Olympus EM-1) + wet diopter lens (nauticam CMC2). The focus light was on red, and my dive buddy was aiming the optic fiber snoot at individual skeleton shrimps.... Would love to hear your comments and suggestions. The design is uploaded to https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3749151
  18. Hello, does anyone have experience in building a own snoot with water tubes etc.? I tried to build one and also attached a laser pointer to see where to aim. But I have a problem to connect the plastic tubes with my strobes... Underwater it was falling off very often. Any tip or idea would be helpful! Thanks a lot :-)
  19. Snootistas! I need some advice please. I'm using a Retra LSD on an Inon Z240 sitting on an Inon tripod. I activate the Inon Z240 focus/aiming light and the critter is perfectly light by the LSD. Because I'm using the LSD on a tripod, I know me moving the camera has no impact on the aim of the Inon/LSD. I fire the shutter, the Retra'd strobe fires - but the critter is in darkness. And I'm darned sure the flash fired but is not lighting where the aiming light is pointing. Is there some sort of offset between the aiming light and the strobe output? I would have thought not given the construction of the Retra LSD but can't think of any other explanation. If you use a Retra LSD off-housing (ie on a tripod) what is your experience of getting the aiming light and strobe output hitting the exact same place? Thanks! Slightly Frustrated in Bonaire

  21. Hi, Up for sale is a like-new Howshot fiber optic Snoot that fits the Sea & Sea YSD1 and YSD2 underwater strobes. The sale includes 3 Fiber Optic arms and three different lenses for each arm. One arm is for the focus light and the others are for subject illumination. I don't use it nearly as much as I thought I would so it's time to let it go. It can be yours for $190 which includes shipping to buyer. Paypal only. ​14 day return OK. Buyer pays return shipping I live in San Mateo california Thanks for looking, Larry
  22. I'm mulling over "investing" in the Retra "Ultimate Light Shaping Device" for another foray into snooting. Last time I made my own snoot with a bunch of plumbing piping - with decidedly mixed results (a subtle way of saying they were rubbish). The online reviews I've read of the Retra LSD are all pretty good. But I'd welcome any views from the WP cognoscente. Anyone got one they'd be interested in selling? Thanks! Tim
  23. Hi Oscar can you give us a summary of the intended features in the update? Also, are we clear to use the external battery packs at this time? I think the flashes are great, and I am getting better lighting than ever on my shots. It is one of the best gear upgrades I have done. Can you post any tips for using the LSD? I find it very hard to coordinate holding the camera and manipulating the light to the correct position, and I don't have a buddy to hold and point the flash. Thanks!
  24. A brand new snoot, never used, with the aiming light. $125. If interested, reply here. Thanks!
