Z-240/D-2000 Type 3 with new LED Focus Light

New "Z-240 Type 3"/"D-2000 Type 3" is released with new generation high-intensity 3W LED Focus Light.

  • Underwater auto strobe "Z-240 Type 3"(*1)

  • --Release date : February 21, 2008
  • Underwater auto strobe "D-2000 Type 3"(*1)

  • --Release date : February 20, 2008


    Left:"Z-240 Type 3"
    Right:"D-2000 Type 3"


--New feature of "Z-240 Type 3"/"D-2000 Type 3"--
    The new "Z-240 Type 3"/"D-2000 Type 3" is equipped with new generation high-intensity 3W LED as built-in Focus Light. This brighter Focus Light is usable as independent diving light as well as aiming/supplemental light of shooting with shutter-linked auto OFF feature to prevent exposure of the Focus Light on an image.

    Other fundamental and unique features like;

  • "S-TTL" auto to acquire correct exposure by simply pressing shutter release button.
  • T-shape Twin Flash to provide 100°×100°circular beam angle without diffuser.


  • is same as existing model (*2). New "Z-240 Type 3"/"D-2000 Type 3" now supports wide variety of your diving life beyond underwater shooting.

    (*1)
    The new strobes have derived name "Type 3" and product names remain same.


--Sanyo "eneloop" rechargeable battery--

    From "Type 3" strobes, Sanyo "eneloop"(HR-3UTG) is ONLY compatible Ni-MH rechargeable battery. Other older generation Ni-MH rechargeable battery or high capacity Ni-MH battery has drawbacks like;

    1. high self-discharge characteristic makes hard to use optimum battery capacity
    2. easy to get over discharging which could cause sudden performance degradation


    Above mentioned disadvantages can have excessive heat during charging/discharging which could damage inner electrical circuit of newly designed "Z-240 Type 3"/"D-2000 Type 3". Next generation Ni-MH battery; Sanyo "eneloop"(HR-3UTG) has cleared up those drawbacks generating less heat during charging/discharging enabling safe operation of "Z-240 Type 3"/"D-2000 Type 3" within operational instruction and limitation(*2).

    (*2)
    The new "Z-240 Type 3"/"D-2000 Type 3" requires strict limitations on ["continuous mode" of the Focus Light] and "repeated flashes"/"total number of flashes" Improper operation beyond limitations may directly cause excessive heat or degradation on Focus Light unit, flashlight emitting parts or inner electrical circuit of newly designed "Z-240 Type 3"/"D-2000 Type 3" equipped with LED Focus Light.
    Please make sure to read through supplied user manual/documentations before using "Z-240 Type 3"/"D-2000 Type 3" to ensure proper and safety operation. Following link page explains limitations, compatible battery and general safety precautions.

--"Z-240 Type 3"/"D-2000 Type 3" dedicated optional part--

    New optional connection part necessary to use "Optical D Slave Cable Connection" connecting between "Z-240 Type 3"/"D-2000 Type 3"(master strobe) and INON strobe (slave strobe)(*3), is released.

  • "Optical D Slave Cable II"

  • --Release date: February 26, 2008

    "Optical D Slave Cable II"

    (*3)
    Compatible master strobe:
    Z-240 "Type 3"
    D-2000 "Type 3"

    Compatible slave strobe:

    Z-220 *---------------(*8)
    Z-220F ---------------(*5)
    Z-220S ---------------(*6)


    (*4)
    Normally "Optical D Slave Cable II" is not necessary to set up multiple external strobe configuration since camera/camera system and each strobe is directly connected by [Optical D Cable Connection].


    • System configuration with [Optical D Cable Connection] x 2


    • When using particular camera/camera system or strobe type configured with [Z-240"Type 3"]/[D-2000"Type 3"], master strobe and camera/camera system is connected with [Optical D Cable Connection]/[Electrical Cable Connection]. In this case, the master strobe and slave strobe is connected by [Optical D Slave Cable Connection] and needs "Optical D Slave Cable II".

    • System configuration with
    • [Optical D Cable Connection] x 1 and
      [Optical D Slave Cable Connection] x 1



      Existing "Optical D Slave Cable" for "Optical D Slave Cable Connection" between "Z-240 Type 2"/"D-2000 Type 2" (master strobe) and INON strobe, is NOT usable for multiple strobe configuration using "Z-240 Type 3"/"D-2000 Type 3" as master strobe causing improper flashing operation on slave strobe.  Please refer to user manuals of "Z-240 Type 3"/"D-2000 Type 3" for detail of connection method to set up multiple strobe system with different camera/camera system or Inon strobes.


    (*5)
    The master strobe Focus Light will not trigger slave strobe's Focus Light/Target Laser.

    (*6)
    Flash operation only in synch with master strobe's flashing.

    (*7)
    The master strobe Focus Light will not turn OFF slave strobe's Focus Light/Focus LED.

    (*8)
    The slave strobe's Focus Light is not usable. The master strobe's Focus Light will not trigger slave strobe's Target Laser.
