  2. Good day everyone, After years of following WetPixel (WP) on Instagram I've taken the plunge and formally joined. I recently upgraded from a mirrorless 4/3* to a full frame Nikon D850. Wow what a camera! Shooting it in a Nauticam housing with the vacuum system, which I love. For strobes I use the YSD2 J's from Sea & Sea and the Z240's from Inon. Our last trip I added two Nauticam 70x300mm carbon fiber float arms. I thought I had my rig neutrally buoyant before, but I was wrong. Being able to have the camera float at depth for 10-15 seconds before slowly sinking was a joy to behold. At times I found myself playing with my rig if I couldn't find a compelling shot or was completing the safety stop. I've been diving since late 2006 and took up UW Photography in early 2014, so still learning a lot. I like to say I'm a diver first and a photographer second, which is true most of the time. For the past four years my wife and I travel around 100 days a year and 2/3 of that is diving and shooting. In 2011 I made my first trip to the Solomon's and have returned once since then, but have trips planned in 2020 and 2021. 2017 was our first introduction to Indonesia, where we have returned three times since then with more on the books in the next two years. I am almost over diving in the Caribbean, as Indo and the Pacific has a hold on me. As far as shooting I tend to prefer macro as I can control the foreground and background easier, but I am enjoying the challenge of wide angle. At this point in my craft I'm trying to move away from the animal ID shot and become more artistic. I can easily spend 10-40 minutes on a single subject/setup. We have been attending workshops from Backscatter for techniques and post processing with Erin Quigley and Jim Decker. I've also attended three of their Digital Shootouts. If anyone is interested I have a hobby website http://brownduckphoto.comthat does not get as much attention as it should. Best, Andy *eventually listed in the classifieds
  3. Looking for a single Inon Z-240 Type 4 that is in good condition. Send me a PM if you have one you're willing to part with for a price that is fair. I recently noticed that one of mine has a much lower output than the other while shooting a large ball of Jacks. Initially I though one of the two flash tubes might be dead but later I confirmed that is not the case by taking photos of the strobe in set to a low power with my lens stopped all the way down. Not sure what is going on with it because it still works fine but the output is significantly lower than my other Inon Z-240, I am fairly sure this wasn't previously the case as I never noticed it.
  4. Hello, does anyone have experience in combining Inon Z-240 and D-200? Is there a even light or ist there a big difference between the two light sources (if you shoot for example a huge animal like a shark on sandy bottom)? Thanks a lot! Michael
  5. Hello everyone, I am upgrading to a Nauticam D850 system and am selling my Nauticam D7100 housing and other gear. I'd like to sell as a system if possible. We can talk about breaking it apart if I don't have any luck selling it as a pack. I also have two lenses that I'm selling separately from the Nauticam system I'm parting with. System ($4500) Nauticam DA 7100 housing: Comes with a Nikonos Sync port for hard wiring strobes if you want. Pretty decent condition but like any housing put to good use there are some scratches, mainly along the bottom. Never gotten wet inside and the internal mechanisms are like new. Nikon D7100 Bodies: I have three bodies but am keeping the primary body for a friend. It has the most use. The two remaining bodies are very clean and have not been used nearly as much as my primary, which, again, I'm keeping. Cosmetically, the bodies are very clean. I am open if someone does not want both bodies, but my personal preference is to have a back up. Each body comes with battery, charger, cable, strap and manuals in their original Nikon boxes. Nikon 10-24 DX lens: I used this lens on five dives only and on a trip to Hawaii topside. Otherwise it is essentially new. You will need a dome port as I am keeping mine. Also includes the appropriate Nauticam zoom gear. Zen Mini Dome (non removable shade version). In very good condition. Glass is flawless with no scratches, body has minimal cosmetic wear. Tokina 10-17 lens. I have only used this lens underwater. When not diving it is sealed inside of the housing and stored in an ice chest. Very clean, no visible wear. Includes Nauticam zoom gear. Kenko 1.4X tele-converter with extended zoom gear. Does NOT include the Nauticam 20mm extension ring required to use this device. I'm keeping that for my new system. Two Inon Z240's. I have four of these and the two for this system are the back ups, so they have less use and are cleaner than my primary strobes. Each strobe comes with a ball mount. Still, there is some minor scratches on the body but nothing that in any way affects form, fit or function. Each comes with a diffuser and spare o-ring set. Does NOT include fiber optic cables. 800 Lumen Fisheye Fix aiming light. The light works great but the lock switch does not prevent the dial from rotating when not in use. If it gets bumped it can turn the light on. Comes with two batteries and charger. Also Selling: Nikon D810 body only: $1700. Cosmetically clean. 30,714 shutter clicks so a lot of bandwidth to go to the expected life of 200,000 shutter actuations. Comes with battery, strap, manuals, cable and original box. Sigma 20mm 1.4 ART. Beautiful lens. Bought it for astrophotography but never really ended up using it. Been sitting sealed in a case for just under two years, so it is really in perfectly new condition. $600 FIRM I have photos of everything listed above. Just shoot me an email if you want them.

  6. Looking to buy one or a pair of either D2000 or Z240 strobes. Please let me know if you got for sale. Shipment would be to Sweden.
  7. I'm looking to complete a strobe pair for some jobs coming up and a looking to get either a second Retra strobe or a second Inon Z-240. I purchased one Retra strobe with Ikelite connection for the summer and recently wanted to buy a second one, but learned that they are temporarily discontinued. I also have one Inon Z-240 on hand that I would be happy to pair up instead. Looking for either in good working condition. Let me know how much! Many thanks.
  8. Hello guys, Clearing out some gear... doing a refresh of my setup and hoping to move some parts I don't need! First up, a Tokina 10-17 F3.5-4.5 DX for Nikon. Never used underwater, just some astrophotography. Moving away from Nikon... Great condition with no blemishes. Asking US$320 shipped to the US/Canada Next, an Inon S2000. Used for one trip. Never flooded. Have box and all parts as shown. Asking US$280 shipped to US/Canada Lastly, an Inon Z240 Type 4. Also used for one trip and never flooded. Box and all parts as shown. Asking US$350 shipped to US/Canada Thanks!
  9. I have an Inon z240 type 3 strobe FS. It was a personal one, I just don't use it. No real difference with a type 4, hasn't had hard use. Clean, never flooded, powers right up. Includes ball mount, whatever diffusers and spares I can find. Free Shipping in US lower 48. +3% for PP or CC.
  10. For sale a complete Canon 7D system of cameras, lenses, housing, ports, strobes, batteries, vacuum system, and all needed accessories to have you in the water shooting the day it arrives. Never leaked or flooded and includes a Backscatter AirLock vacuum system to ensure you have a good seal. Original owner, less than 100 dives since last service by Backscatter. I’ve made the move to full frame so I would prefer to sell it as a complete set. Package includes free email and phone tech support to help you understand how it all goes together and works in case Canon SLRs or underwater photography are new to you. I'm in the Seattle/Vancouver area and in-person transaction and setup is an option. Original purchase price of full system was $13,000 Asking $5,500 plus shipping. Cameras and Housing 2 Canon EOS 7D bodies – 18 megapixel, 8 fps, full HD video, excellent manual white balance for shooting underwater ambient light Includes batteries, charger and CF card. I travel with two bodies, 1 for underwater with specific settings, and 1 for top side. Just in case anything happened underwater I had a backup. Never had anything happen but find having a 2nd land camera is sometimes useful. https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/products/details/cameras/dslr/eos-7d Aquatica 7D housing – machined aluminum housing with large easy to navigate knobs. Button placement is exactly over the camera button, so once you can navigate the back of the camera you can navigate the housing. Housing was used with optical flash trigger, so no electronics to worry about. All buttons, knobs, and buckles are properly aligned and operate smoothly with no sticking. There are minor superficial scratches on bottom of housing from boat deck. http://www.aquatica.ca/en/products_dslr_d7.html Wide angle setup Tokina 10-17 fisheye – probably the most widely used underwater wide angle lens ever made and still one of the best. Includes lens bag. Recently rated #2 best underwater lens of 2017 by Scubashooters.net http://www.scubashooters.net/underwater-life/best-lenses-underwater-photography/ http://www.divephotoguide.com/underwater-photography-special-features/article/underwater-photographers-guide-tokina-10-17-mm-lens/ Aquatica 8” acrylic dome, shade, extension ring, port lock, 2 neoprene covers. The big dome gives great sharpness all the way to the corners of the frame, and is great for shooting splits. http://www.aquatica.ca/en/products_ports_18405.html Aquatica 4” glass mini dome with locking port ring, neoprene cover. The smaller dome is ideal for when you need to swim a lot when shooting things like whale sharks and humpback whales. Also useful for close-focus wide angle when you want to get the lens REALLY close. This port is like new, only 8 days in the water since it was purchased for the Wetpixel Isla Mujeres trip last summer. http://www.aquatica.ca/en/products_ports_18410.html Macro setup Canon 60mm – a good starter macro lens because the depth of field and focus are much easier than the 100mm on an APS-C 1.6 crop. Perfect length for most fish shots, ideal for things from about basketball size down to about 1 inch. For things from a few inches to 1cm size I used the Canon 100mm. The 100mm lens will not be included in the sale, but the extension ring for it is. Includes UV filter and case. https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/products/details/lenses/ef/macro/ef-s-60mm-f-2-8-macro-usm http://www.uwphotographyguide.com/macro-lenses Aquatica low profile flat macro port – in excellent condition with no scratches on glass. Also includes extension ring for use with Canon 100mm, and neoprene cover http://www.aquatica.ca/en/products_ports_18429.html Focus light Sola 600 – fully sealed rechargeable, 3 brightness levels, also 3 brightness levels of red light for those skittish subjects. Useful as a focus light, and also as primary dive light on night dives. Includes Ultralight ball mount for light, Ultralight ball mount for housing, 1/4x20 stainless stud for mounting, and Ultralight clamp. http://www.divephotoguide.com/underwater-photography-special-features/article/sola-600-focus-light/ Strobes A pair of Inon Z240 Type 4, with optical sync cords and housing adapter. Includes 2 diffusers, manual and original unused sets of clear and red filters for built in focus/aiming light. For the easiest use these strobes can be run in TTL, and in TTL with exposure compensation. This is an easy way to get started and get great pictures your first few trips if you are not comfortable with running manual strobe power adjustments. Once you get more comfortable and want to get creative shooting close focus wide angles with sunballs, then you can run manual. You can significantly reduce the power of the built in flash by a camera setting, allowing you much shorter flash recycle times. The strobes have never leaked and as you can see in the photo the battery compartments look brand new. Also includes a pair of Ultralight 8 inch and 5 inch arms with strobe ball mounts, Ultralight clamps and Stix floats, plus 16 Eneloop batteries in cases and 2 chargers. http://www.inon.jp/products/strobe/z240/top.html http://www.uwphotographyguide.com/reviews-strobes-inon-z240 https://www.backscatter.com/Inon-Z240-Underwater-Strobe Bonus gear if you buy the full package A Backscatter AirLock vacuum system. The port is already installed on the housing, includes manual pump. A must have for peace of mind and good insurance against accidents. https://www.backscatter.com/Backscatter-AirLock-Vacuum-Manual-System-Bulkhead A set of Locline arms with Aquatica mounting hardware and Sola adapters. These were used for a set of video lights I won't be selling. https://www.backscatter.com/Locline-34-Sola-Flex-Arm-for-GatesAquatica-video-h A couple extra Canon lenses for top side use. These are small light lenses that travel well and having an extra backup body for underwater that doubles as your land/boat camera. Pictured below with the same Tokina 10-17 and Canon 60 mentioned above. Canon 17-85 IS USM Canon 28-105 Canon 100-300 Also a variety of O-rings, allen wrenches, and other small bits that may come in handy.

  14. Want to buy an inon z240 strobe, ideally with an arm, and sync cable. UK seller only. (Or in the Maldives if possible...) Thank you
  15. 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
  16. I am selling 2 Inon Z-240 Strobes with Nauticam Ball connections and Knobs that glow in the dark. Price: € 1000 location: Graz, Austria The electric cabels are new and ca be bought for € 120
  17. I have 2 inon z240's which i bought exactly 1 year ago, brand new. I have a canon 5d mkiii, ikelite housing and so always shoot in manual and with the pre-flash button pushed in on the strobe. Just the other day i was out shooting and noticed that one of my strobes seemed to be stuck on low power and no matter what i changed on the manual power setting it was giving the same low output. I exited the water and had a look at the sync cables and battery compartment for water ingress but nothing at all. I noticed when i switched the strobe setting to S-TTL i could get a full power flash output but when back on manual i could not adjust it again. This is showing the exact same symptoms as when the pre-flash button is not locked in. So onwards to that evening where i do some research online and notice a lot of people getting this same issue and the culprit seems to be the magnet in the pre-flash button corroding therefore not engaging the switch inside the inon strobe unit. I went ahead and removed the button only to notice the magnet is completely intact, not surprising considering it's less than a year old. So the problem must be inside... maybe a sticky or faulty switch... such as you get on a car relay sometimes in which the solution is often to tap it with something. As a last ditch attempt at getting my beloved strobe back to working order i pushed in the Pre-Flash button and tapped the side of the strobe with my multi tool and bingo it's working perfectly again. I presume as long as i don't let the switch out then it should keep the switch engaged and i can continue shooting for now. I am currently working in Tonga and getting things shipped to and from here is extremely impractical therefore i will probably continue using the strobe for now as long as it holds up. However has anyone else had this issue as i can't find anything else online about it.... Any input would be much appreciated!
  18. Pair of INON Z240 strobes Type 2 in excellent condition Always rinsed with clear water Sold with light diffuser and Z mount 400€ each Sea&Sea Sync cord available (40€ each)
  19. I have an Inon Z240 strobe that is getting water in the battery compartment. I've checked all oring sealing surfaces and they look fine. The oring has been switched out for a brand new one and the water is still getting in. 2 floods, 2 different orings. Both orings look perfect and the installation was fine. Is there any other way for the water to get into this compartment? Ie. not through the cap/oring.
  20. 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
  21. I am selling 2 Inon Z240 Type II strobes. Both of these strobes work great. I live in MN and like to dive in warm oceans so I only used these strobes 2-3 times a year on my dive vacations. Both of these strobes function great - the only issue with the strobes is the focus button is a bit sticky and sometimes won't turn off with the focus light button - I just turn the strobe off/on and the focus light will turn off. I am currently using the strobes with my Nauticam housing and Olympus E-M1. I have used these strobes with an E-M5, E-PL3, and Cannon G9 & G12. I bought one strobe during a photography event in Cozumel from an Inon rep and the other strobe I bought used on WetPixel in 2012. Strobe 1 will come with a user's manual, red & blue plugs for diffusers, 2 diffusers and an extra set of O-rings. I did have about a tablespoon of water in the battery compartment 3 years ago - but dried it out and has functioned perfectly. Strobe 2 will come with 2 diffusers and an extra set of O-rings. The diffuser both have a crack but still function fine. I am asking $300 for each strobe or $550 for both. The buyer will pay shipping and insurance. I will accept Paypal. I am attaching pictures of the strobes. Thanks for looking, Audrey
  22. hi to all Inon Z240 Type IV users! I am one of them :-) Today after re-reading part of the cumbersome Z240 Type IV manual (basic operation), i saw on page 13 (o-ring maintenance method), that they recommended to re-grease the battery cap oring while he was seated in the groove (i.e. no need to take the o-ring out from the groove unless difficult to clear remaining dirt). However, over the last 5 years (!) i have been taking out the oring from its groove for lubrification, each and every time i changed the batteries! I am now wondering if i have wasted my time, though i am happy to think i could reduce significantly my photo gear maintenance time :-) But i must have been advised by someone to proceed the way i did with full oring removal each time cap is opened. So i'd like to hear how you do: 1/ do you remove the battery oring from its groove each time you want to grease it, or just grease it while it's seating in the groove (greasing the oring outside then)? 2/ do you do such oring maintenance each and every time you open the battery cap? thanks in advance for sharing your experience! Obviously, if your way of doing things resulted in strobe flood, please say so ;-) cheers Nicolas 2
  23. Hi all, I've been using a D7000 in a Nauticam housing connected to a pair of Inon Z240 (Type 4) over fiber optic cables and using TTL exposure fine for some time. I'm relatively pleased with the results. This has been mostly on day trips where I might do a couple of dives in a day. Am going on vacation where I hope to make about 4 or 5 dives a day. I'd like to maximize my camera's internal battery life, so I don't have to crack open the housing between dives. So, am thinking about moving from TTL to manual exposure. The D7000 flash exposure can be set for TTL or Manual mode (Full thru 1/128 sec). I know how to set the Inon in sTTL mode (Main Mode Dial on sTTL, EV Control Dial on 'B', ACC button UP/On). But when it comes to manual mode, I have the following questions: - With the D7000, can I set the internal flash to 1/128 sec to trigger the Z240? - Would the Z240 settings then be this?: Main Mode Dial on M (or Full), EV Control Dial on whatever value, and the ACC button UP/On I'm assuming the D7000 requires the ACC button to be UP/On, regardless of my camera flash setting and the same for both sTTL and Manual modes on the Z240. Is the above correct? Thanks in advance.
  24. 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
  25. Hi all, I am interested to buy one Z240 type 4 in perfect working condition, unflooded. Or, if you have one strobe but would like to have two of lesser power, I am proposing exchange of my 2x Inon D2000 (older models, but fully functional and never flooded) for 1 Z240. I am located in Croatia, so looking to buy only from EU sellers due to tax/customs fees for import from elsewhere. Payment with paypal unless you have a better option. Feel free to message me with offers should you have one for sale.
