First, inspect the O-ring as it is seated in the groove. If any of the following are evident, there is a high chance that the strobe will flood if placed in water. Be very careful about checking these points: If hair, sand, lint or other debris is attached to the O-ring Remove O-ring and wipe-off the debris. If the O-ring is cut or cracked The O-ring must be removed and replaced with a new O-ring. If the O-ring is twisted The O-ring must be removed and reinstalled uniformly with no

Chapter 1 D-180 Features D-180 Main Functions The D-180 is a high performance, multi-function underwater auto-strobe, designed to be particularly useful with digital camera systems and including features such as advanced cancel circuitry and an integral underwater light. Depending on what camera system and master strobe the D-180 is used with, the useable D-180 functions will be different. Some functions are only useable in conjunction with certain camera and strobe systems. The main

as a Slave Strobe, by reducing the amount of backscatter caused by light coming from the camera’s internal strobe illuminating suspended particles in front of the lens, enabling clearer, higher quality images. The system (Patent Pending) was devised from the D-180’s design conception. First, a “Clear Photo Filter” is placed over the camera’s flash. This filter blocks visible light, only allowing non-visible wavelengths to pass though. Accordingly, there is no visible light to illuminate

In general, for “Pre-flash TTL Auto Exposure Adjustment” type camera systems, before the shutter opens to actually record the image, the subject reflectivity must be metered in order to calculate the main flash duration (intensity). In order to meter the subject reflectivity, the camera fist fires one or more small flashes (pre-flashes) and measures the light reflected back from the subject. Then the camera calculates what it “thinks” the best main flash duration would be to achieve correc

the D-180 Advanced Cancel Circuit (patent pending) effectively reduces the internal strobe’s main flash output with the following benefits: Conserves the internal strobe’s condenser energy so the internal strobe’s recycle time is shortened, allowing quicker follow-up shots. Reduces energy consumption so more images can be taken per set of batteries. The Advanced Cancel Circuit reduces the internal strobe’s second main flash by first telling the D-180 to reproduce (in real time) the camer

The non-visible light which passes through the Clear Photo Filter is picked up by an Inon “Optical D Cable” fiber optic and guided to the D-180’s slave sensor. When the D-180 receives this light signal if fires. Since the D-180 can be mounted externally, at an angle away from the camera, the strobe’s light beam can reach the subject without illuminating the water and particles between the camera and subject. Another benefit of Clear Photo System is no stray light from the internal flash
