--Attachment Lens--
    The "AD Mount Base・PT-044" enables you to install INON AD Mount series attachment lens. AD mount series attachment lens lineup consists "UCL-165AD" to shorten minimum focus length to close to a subject, compact dual use land/underwater "UWL-105AD Wide Conversion Lens" to shoot wider area and "UFL-165AD Fish-eye Conversion Lens" to shoot ultra wide fish-eye image. INON supports to shoot all different type of subject from "fish-eye" to "ultra macro" with simple and reliable system.

    Optional "Grip Base D II with Rubber Grip D" and "Optical D Cable・Cap W46 Set with Clear Photo System Film" enables you to install digital camera compatible "S-TTL" auto strobe INON "Z-240" / "D-2000" series(*2). "S-TTL" auto of "Z-240" / "D-2000" series gives you correct and reliable exposure by simply pressing shutter release button. It is easy to step up to dual strobe configuration with additional "Grip Base DIII with Rubber Grip D" and "Optical D Cable". Wide range of INON "Arm II System" provides you many different configurations to support your sophisticated lighting needs. INON provides you simple and reliable system with innovative "S-TTL" Auto and "Arm II system" to enhance your creative image to capture different subject in variable shooting condition with wide variety of attachment lens.

    (*2) "S-TTL Auto" works without any problem but "Manual mode" and "External Auto mode" has operational limitation. More than -1.0 EV. setting in Manual mode and actual flash output beyond -1.0 EV. on External Auto mode is not usable. This is because FE360 built-in flash characteristic where time-lag between "pre-flash" and "main flash" is approx. 0.25 seconds which is beyond Advanced Cancel Circuit control range and always has to set it to OFF. Please see each strobe user manual for detail.

--Why so many different Mount Bases / Optical D Cable Sets--
    As same as other INON Mount Bases and Optical D Cable Cap Sets, "AD Mount Base・PT-044" / "Optical D Cable・Cap W46 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.
