Product Highlights
  • For Olympus Cameras
  • Maintains All On-Camera Flash Functions
  • Heavy Duty 3' Coiled Cord

This Dot Line HD ETTL Off-Camera TTL Shoe Cord maintains all on-camera flash functions for one Olympus-compatible shoe-mount flash unit used off-camera at distances up to 3'. It is compatible with all Olympus cameras with a standard flash shoe, digital or film.

The cord features a molded shoe on one end that slides onto the camera's hot shoe and locks on to prevent accidental dislodging. A second shoe mounts onto a flash bracket or light stand via either a standard foot with lock or a 1/4-20 thread. The top of the shoe accepts the flash unit. A heavy duty 3' coiled cord connects the shoes.

        Comments about RPS Lighting HD ETTL Off-Camera TTL Shoe Cord:

        If you need a cable for a flash bracket, it works great. May not stretch very far for hand hold or mounting on a stand. But has metal parts and appears well constructed for 1/3 of the price of Olympus brand cable.

          Comments about RPS Lighting HD ETTL Off-Camera TTL Shoe Cord:

          Seems to work well.
          Holding the flash off camera is a tad difficult due to the stiff extending cord if you attempt to use it to near maximum length.

            Comments about RPS Lighting HD ETTL Off-Camera TTL Shoe Cord:

            The RPS ETTL cord has been an excellent alternative to the Olympus-branded TTL cord so far. I purchased it mainly because of its price - it's much more reasonable than the Oly cord. Overall it seems to be well built and sturdy enough, and the TTL function has worked perfectly in the test shots I've made. I bought this so that I could put my FL-50 on a plate with a small softbox, for use shooting macro subjects. Having TTL ability for that is a huge help. (Another plus is that the cord isn't too long.) The flash end also has a mounting screw socket, which is a nice touch.

              Works fine between my Lumix GS3 and my Metz flash. With a diffuser on the flash, I get really pleasing results on a bracket that elevates the flash about a foot above the camera.

                  Comments about RPS Lighting HD ETTL Off-Camera TTL Shoe Cord:

                  I have used some cheaper brand off-camera cords that are all plastic, and recently almost destroyed a flash as a result.

                  This cord is built very well, with a metal housing on the flash mount module. The only issue I had was that my Olympus FL-600R flash did not lock down snug on the mount and would have contact problems. I simply (and carefully) decreased the gap where the flash shoe slides in, and have no more problems. I think this issue has to do with the design of the Oly flash mount rather than this cord.

                  Regardless, I now use my flashes on a bracket without fear that the flash mount will snap in half and send my flash crashing to the floor.

                          This cord was recomended to me by a B&H staffer. Having bought third party cords before I was a little concerned that it would be cheaply made and fragile, but it turned out to be quite good.

                                No problems yet, Use it with a "mecablitz 36AF-5 Digital Flash for Olympus / Panasonic / Leica Camera by Metz" on a Panasonic Lumix G2.
