--Why so many different Mount Bases / Optical D Cable Sets--
    As same as other INON Mount Bases and Optical D Cable Cap Sets, "M67 Mount Base・PT-042"/"Optical D Cable/Cap W32 Set with Clear Photo System Film" is exclusively designed for specific camera/housing including careful compatibility test to;

    • Optimize high quality lens performance for high quality macro/wide shot and
    • (design attachment lens layout for best suited distance from camera’s master lens which is vary among different camera/housing models)

    • Support highly accurate and reliable "S-TTL Auto" shooting.
    • (design fiber optics attachment layout based on camera's built-in flash location)


    INON benefits you with above advantages by producing specific accessories for each specific camera/housing model.

    Other manufacture's versatile lens adopters or universal strobe cables look like very useful but they often show;

    • Just enough to attach a lens
    • >>without optimizing optical performance of lens resulting
      only widen an image area with heavy vignetting on corners or terrible quality in peripheral part of an image

    • Just enough to attach a strobe
    • >>without accurate exposure control and reliability resulting
      fluctuating exposure and fickle flashing


    INON system is completely different from those versatile products and simple yet reliable to provide "high quality image"/"highly accurate S-TTL Auto" to support every level of underwater photographers.
