  • Wireless Connection Kit (*2)
    --available in the market

There is no change on strobe model name except its version code which
is "Type 4" to distinguish from previous models.

  • Wireless S-TTL capability!! (*3)
    Successfully amplifies receiving optical signal from the slave sensor 20 times more comparing to previous Z-240 "Type3" / D-2000 "Type3". With optional Wireless Connection Kit, Z-240 "Type4" / D-2000 "Type4" supports wireless [S-TTL Auto mode]as well as 24 step External Auto / 13 step Manual as like ultra compact strobe S-2000.
  • Enhanced 180 lumen LED Focus LightWell established Z-240 "Type3" / D-2000 "Type3" LED Focus Light as its intensity, further evolved to 180 lumen. The enhanced Focus Light supports focusing and is usable as independent diving light with its 180 lumen intensity and 20° coverage. As same as previous model, LED light carries shutter-linked auto OFF function and will not be exposed on an image.
  • Compatibility of NiMH battery other than Sanyo "eneloop"Previous Z-240 "Type3" / D-2000 "Type3" has limited NiMH battery compatibility only with Sanyo "eneloop" (HR-3UTG) and equivalent NiMH batteries confirmed compatible by INON. New Z-240 "Type4" / D-2000 "Type4" can use other conventional NiMH batteries or high-capacity NiMH batteries as like S-2000. However, INON INC. still recommends using Sanyo "eneloop" (HR-3UTG) and equivalent new generation NiMH batteries since some conventional NiMH batteries and high-capacity NiMH batteries have following characteristics and could have problem to keep their performance.

    a) High self-discharging characteristic prevents using all battery capacity
    b) High heat generating characteristic during charging/discharging could
    cause excessive load on batteries/devices
    c) Above a) could lead to over
    discharge and together with above b), could lead to sudden performance

    When using "conventional" or "high capacity" NiMH batteries other than ("eneloop" type) "new generation" NiMH batteries, we recommend using good quality batteries with least problem mentioned above.
  • Newly developed, "Type L" fiber optics compatible (*4)All INON fiber optics products have been modified to new Type L version carrying compact "L" connector in conjunction with Z-240 "Type4" / D-2000 "Type4" facelift (*5). The L-Connector is rotatable to support easy handling with free cable positioning.
  • (*3) Please refer to "Wireless Connection Compatibility" for detail of S-TTL Auto compatibility etc. with each camera system / each optional accessory. (*4) Please visit following link page for detail of "Type L" fiber optics products. ・【News】All 「Optical Cable」products have been upgraded to "Type L" (*5) Z-240 "Type4" / D-2000 "Type4" is compatible only with "Type L" fiber optics products carrying "wireless type" strobe connector(*4)(*6) Existing fiber optics products have "non-wireless type" strobe connector and not usable for Z-240 "Type4" / D-2000 "Type4" (*6). (*6) Previous Optical Cable products needs to replace its strobe connector part with optional Sensor Plug・Wireless (see below image). Z-240 "Type4" users can use supplied Sensor Cap for the replacement and not necessary to buy optional Sensor Plug・Wireless. Please contact your purchasing dealer or INON INC. for detail.
