Retra Underwater Technology has announced an update for its Light Shaping Device (LSD). The Pilot Light Enhancement (PLE) module has been developed as an enhancement when the LSD is used with the Inon Z240 strobe. Since, in common with most snoot type devices, “sighting” the LSD is somewhat awkward, being able to use the Z240’s built-in aiming light makes the process simpler. The PLE mounts onto the strobe with bolts and the LSD is then mounted onto it. This effectively straightens the beam of the aiming light, making it useful for aligning the LSD correctly. It produces an enhanced output in the pilot light, but does cause a loss of one stop in strobe power.
It is available now at €48 plus shipping.
