Product features

●「Z Adapter MV」/「YS Adapter MV」
・ The「Z Adapter MV」/「YS Adapter MV」adds INON Arm II compatible ball joint on combined INON strobe etc. to link to an arm which is equipped with the ball-joint or housing/base which is combined with the 「Direct Base III」 via 「Clamp III」.
・ Newly introduced plastic ball joint provides flexible strobe positioning even without loosening the 「Clamp III」to make it dramatically easy to adjust strobe aiming.
・ Successfully trimmed total weight; 「Z Adapter MV」 air: 35.4g(1.2oz)/underwater approx. 16g (0.6oz) (existing model weight air: 45g(1.6oz) / underwater approx. 29g(1.0oz)), 「YS Adapter MV」 air: 20.4g(0.7oz) / underwater approx. 7g (0.2oz)(existing model weight air: 40g(1.4oz) / underwater approx. 22g(0.8oz)).

●「Direct Base III」
・ The Direct Base III is attached on majority of base products directly or on housings and particular bases via optional 「M6 Plate Direct Base III」 or 「M5 Plate Direct Base III」 to add INON Arm II system compatible ball-joint to link with an “arm” which is equipped with same type ball-joint or a strobe combined with 「Z Adapter MV」, 「YS Adapter MV」 or 「Direct Base III」 with 「Clamp III」.
・ Refined base design enables to attach on a strobe as well in addition to housings/bases. The ball-joint is made from metal to firmly fix strobe position by lightly clamp the 「Clamp III」 (it is necessary to loose the Clamp III to adjust strobe aiming). Depending on usage or preference, INON offers selection from 「Direct Base III」「Z Adapter MV」or 「YS Adapter MV」.
