Inon Z-330 Type 2 Underwater Flash / Strobe
INON Z-330 Flash for underwater photography is a flagship underwater strobe with wide and powerful light
The INON Z-330 provides powerful Guide Number 33, high performance and multifunction in its compact body. Its built-in optically designed dome lens offering both high power and wide 110 degree coverage underwater without any diffuser which can sacrifice power. For digital cameras, film cameras, optical connection and sync cable connection, the Z-330 strobe supports every camera system with unparalleled features.
The Type 2 features a new “fly-eye” inner surface on the dome lens that suppresses uneven light distribution to deliver ideal circular lighting.
Precisely designed front dome lens together with INON's unique patented "T-shape Twin Flash" successfully manages both powerful strobe light without sacrifice any power and circular 110 degree coverage UNDERWATER.
Together with flashing system in sync with pre-flash and main flash of camera’s built-in flash, the Z-330 can deliver full dump even at 1/1000 high shutter speed setting without cutting power
Minimum Recycle Time "approx. 1.6 sec." at Full Flash
Minimum recycle time at full flash (how fast the strobe ready lamp shines and the strobe is ready after making full flash) is approx. 1.6 sec.(using recommended high quality batteries) achieving fast recycle time even delivers powerful light
S-TTL Auto /13 Steps Manual Flash Mode
INON's unique accurate auto exposure system "S-TTL" has been further evolved. Accuracy of exposure is advanced providing more accurate exposure.
In addition, optimized high performance slave sensor never miss camera's trigger signal even with faint signal or partially damaged fiber optics cable can still trigger the strobe to offer faultless triggering.
Precised 1/2EV. increment 13 steps Manual flash control is onboard to support professional use where fine power adjustment is required to provide highly accurate lighting.
EV. Controller to Adjust Exposure of S-TTL Auto
It is simple to fine-tune flash power in S-TTL Auto by dialing the EV. Control Switch on the back control panel. Adjustable range is 3 steps to increase and 6 steps to decrease. It is easy and simple to suit to personal preference or different exposure control characteristics among camera models.
Bundled "Strobe Light Shade" to Prevent Shining Camera Lens
The "Strobe Light Shade" is bundled to cut a part of strobe light to benefit not shining camera lens directly to dramatically suppress ghost or flare and backscatter when the strobe is positioned close to a lens port.
The flange part rotates 360 degree. Intuitive operation and comfortable adjustment is supported even underwater with light clicks.
220 lumen, Shutter Linked Auto OFF Focus Light
The built-in "Shutter-linked Auto-Off Focus Light" delivers 220lm brightness to support when focusing a subject and cease in synch with the shutter release then automatically turns ON again.
To aim optical axis of the Focus Light in line with strobe light’s optical axis, the Focus Light has a fresnel lens in front supporting more accurate strobe aiming and improved usability as an aiming light.
Conspicuous Phosphorescence Back Panel Improved Intuitive Control Dials
Using white base high-intensity phosphorescence material for the back panel to improve visibility both during day and night dive.
Also control dials are enlarged for user-friendly controllability even through thick gloves during cold water diving. The "EV. Control Switch" stops at minimum and maximum power setting telling you current switch position without seeing the switch itself.
Radiation System to Release Generated Heat Inside
The Z-330 strobe is equipped with circular metal heatsink carrying high thermal conductivity around light emitting area. The heatsink is directly connected to inner circuit component to release generated heat from strobe usage effectively.
Wide Variety of Dome Filters
The Z-330 strobe has a bayonet system to hold a strobe dome filter to attach/remove easily.
Both Optical/Electrical Trigger Supported
Optical connection system widely supports from underwater housings for compact digital cameras to a digital SLR housings with built-in flash or SLRs housing with built-in LED trigger circuitry regardless of make or model. The strobe is equipped with Nikonos 5 pin type cable compatible sync connector to shoot in TTL Auto mode with a film camera or in Manual mode for a digital SLR housing with a bulk head
The strobe can be attached to the ball-arm system using either Inon Z Adapter MV or Inon Z Adapter II . The strobe can be attached to Y-S arm system (Sea & Sea) using Inon Z-Joint or Inon quick-connect Holder Set S-Z.
