Most Liked Positive Review

 

Good - could be better

It helps a lot with lighting in some macro shots. However, the cord's a bit short and and the plastic covers for the connecting ends seem a little flimsy. Overall, it increases my flash options quite a bit.

Most Liked Negative Review

 

Ok, when you don't have a choice

I've got two of these. The plastic foot on the extension end has broken on both. Fortunately, the metal nut allows it to still be fastened to my flash bracket. Works well, but breaks easily.

43's and µ43's

By

from Montgomery, AL  -  Photo Enthusiast

This cord allows me to use an older Olympus 43's flash (FL-36R) with a µ43's camera (E-M5). Works perfectly and allows all features of both to work seamlessly together.

Not sturdy enough for the real world

By

from Lincoln, IL  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Bumped the flash unit (FL-36) and broke the mounting foot off of the upper cable end. Repaired with epoxy and much more sturdy now. I will purchase another and give it the epoxy treatment BEFORE I use it.

Not for the Pro.

By

from Milwaukee, WI  -  Pro Wedding Photographer

I own three of these. Not because I need three, but because the shoe mount keeps breaking. I think that the FL-50 flash is too heavy for the small plastic shoe. It breaks off when I'm making a bounce adjustment. I now use a ProMaster OM TTL Cord that I purchased localy. The ProMaster has a better shoe, but the electrical connections are touchy. This is just another disapointment in Olympus products for the professional.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Does this cable work with the OM-D EM5 with an FL-600R flash?
SAM L  I do not have the same equipments so I am not 100% sure, however, the contact pins layout is same on all Pany and Olympus cameras. The cable has no electronics inside. It is just an extension so I am almost certain it would work for your equipments.
Lon B  Will the cord work with a Lumix G-3 and a Panasonic FL-360? Will it work in all functions or only manual?
JOHN W S  Yes . . . at least I believe so since I've used it both on Olympus and my G1. And ask why would they have changed the configuration? Sorry for the delayed response; of late I spend most of my time writing a blog on Google, Opera and Culture Book. Good luck!
Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
SAM L  I bought this for Lumix GX1 and Metz 40MZ-3i flash off-shoe set up. It works great.
