New optical snoot by SAGA

Recommended Posts

SAGA has always surprised us UWPhotogs with solutions to long term problems like using ports in a different housing brand by constructing adapter rings or flipon-flipoff wet lenses mechanisms, length changing macro port etc... Now, after several trials by different photographers and Retra of installing a lens at the end of a snoot, they have built their own version which includes very clever and useful new ideas:

 

- It has a focusing mechanism to adapt to the required distance (the lens screws in-out).

- It has a group of optical fibers to conduct the strobe´s target light to the center, so even strobes with off-centered target lights (Inons, S&S YS-D1...) can be used and "pointed", and with a non-diffused but strong light (see pic).

- It has a rolling disc with different diameters (I guess one can make any shape...) with confirmation "clicks" on every step.

 

I have not tried it yet but it really seems smart. Contact www.sagadive.com

Hello,

i am lucky, i already try this new SAGA snoot.

I can say is very good. To point, there are no better. I recieved mine yesterday, tested in the pool..., i believed that is the best snoot in the market.

And the most important thing is that i use INON, as you all know, the pilot light is not the center ..., very happy with the fist tests

 

kind regards

 

RB
