  1. 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.
  2. 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

  4. 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.
  5. 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

  7. 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
  8. Retra Snoot for Inon Z 240@ 200 euro Location: Switzerland
  9. 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
  10. 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 :-)
  11. 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

  14. 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
  15. 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!
  16. A brand new snoot, never used, with the aiming light. $125. If interested, reply here. Thanks!

  19. Hi, I have searched a lot for a proper snoot solution for one of my Inon Z-240s and basically I came across three solutions: fiber optic arms something like Inon's own snoot solution (with other manufacturers having additionally a laser aiming light) Retra Which one would you prefer? Currently I am leaning towards the Retra given its flexibility. But how do you store the Retra when you decide to take a picture without it? Also it is really heavy (600g though I don't know how much in water). Regards,

  25. Even with a fish eye lense a snoot can be helpful to lighten up a colourful object on the foreground without disturbing the natural lighting of the background. In this indoor test I used a self made 15 cm long snoot with a front opening of 5 cm made of plastic piping. The snoot was placed on an Ikelite DS 125 strobe set at the lowest intensity. Pictures were taken with the Olympus EPL5 and the Panasonic 8mm fish eye. Single strobe at the left upper corner at a 40 cm distance, ISO 250, shutter speed 1/125, @ f5.6. The three pictures below show the shots without and with strobe, and the snoot on the strobe respectively. Notice that the lighting of the underexposed background is not affected by the snooted strobe. Meaning that this might also work in UW settings like caverns, when you want to add some extra colour like the branche of a sea fan or so, without spoiling the nice natural lighting of the interior.
