  1. Hi, after reading many reports from people who succesfully removed scratches using Novus polish i tried to do the same with my dome port. Started from polish no. 3 (heavy scratch remover) I was able to remove the biggest scratch, but introduced like hundrets of new smaller ones. Then using polish no. 2 (fine scratch remover) I removed previously introduced scratches but introduced new, even smaller ones. I can see them when looking through the dome into a light source. I tried to repeat last step a few times, turning the dome 90 degrees, and the scratches stay there, only changing direction. What am I doing wrong ? Thanks! Piotr
  2. 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.
  3. I have an Inon Z240 strobe that has stopped firing. It seems to charge up okay, the focus light works, but I'm unable to get it to fire, either optically or electrically. I'm not sure what burnt out flash tubes look like, but visually they look fine to me. No obvious sign anywhere of water getting in. What do you reckon is wrong with it?
  4. Does anyone have experience/knows the Subtronic Maxi and Mini strobes? I see an opportunity to pick up a pair 2nd hand. Since they are older models, I cannot find too much info on them, especially specs of the maxi. How do they compare to the z240 in terms of: - total weight? - reliability? - service demand (life of the flash tube? It is different than the 5500K units of Inon)? - performance/GN under water? I would also be interested, if the units can be converted to use AA-batteries, the battery arm is a good idea, however a bit restrictive in case you want shorter arms. Also I see it uses an electrical connection, is it possible to interface it to optical? (TTL or non-TTL)
  5. I lost the little black cap off the tip of the lens release lever (see picture) from my ND20 housing rendering it useless (see picture) and a real pain if using a bulky lens like the Nikon 105VR. After a lot of searching I found a number of suppliers of caps of various materials. The kind people at caplugs Europe (www.caplugs.co.uk) sent me some free samples and the SRC-125-16 did the job perfectly (see picture). As it is longer than the original cap it is unlikely to come off again. Works perfectly and took about 5 seconds to fix. Hope this helps someone else david kessel
