Snoot Set for Z-330/D-200 features

The INON Snoot Set for Z-330/D-200 is an accessory for the INON Z-330/D-200 strobe to change beam angle.  The package contents include Rubber Hood Sleeve for Z-330/D-200, two step telescopic Rubber Hood 72, Step Up Ring, Snoot Tube 26 having inner diameter 26mm/1.0”) and Snoot Tube 10 having inner diameter 10mm/0.4”.  The various combination of packaged parts supports 6 different beam coverages from approx.20 degree up to approx. 80 degree with the following sophisticated effects (*1)(*2):

  • To block extra diffused light eliminating backscatter
  • To highlight a subject by illuminating the subject only
  • To give a spotlight effect on a subject, etc.

The packaged aluminum sleeve is specifically designed to screw on compatible strobe at its outer threads of the circular heat sink to hold the Rubber Hood securely and the telescopic design of the Rubber Hood helps to save space when transporting or storage.

(*1) Always conduct test shots to familiar with the product characteristic before you take an important shot.  When using the compatible strobe in S-TTL Auto mode/TTL Auto mode for spotlight effect of this product, center spot metering mode on a camera is recommended since average metering mode or multi pattern metering mode could wash out the center of an image.  In case S-TTL Auto mode/TTL Auto mode does not provide appropriate exposure, use Manual mode.

(*2) Make sure to cool down combined strobe according to “Operational limitation on flashing/Focus Light” leaflet provided with the strobe, to prevent overheating/degradation of light emitting part/inner components.
