Comments about Olympus Olympus FL-CB05, Hot Shoe to Hot Shoe TTL Flash Cable for the E-1, E-10 & E-20N Digital Cameras.:

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.

Comments about Olympus Olympus FL-CB05, Hot Shoe to Hot Shoe TTL Flash Cable for the E-1, E-10 & E-20N Digital Cameras.:

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.

Comments about Olympus Olympus FL-CB05, Hot Shoe to Hot Shoe TTL Flash Cable for the E-1, E-10 & E-20N Digital Cameras.:

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.

Comments about Olympus Olympus FL-CB05, Hot Shoe to Hot Shoe TTL Flash Cable for the E-1, E-10 & E-20N Digital Cameras.:

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.
