Vello OCS-OP3II overview

  • 1Description

The 3' Vello Off-Camera TTL Flash Cord provides creative photographers with the ability to remotely fire Olympus/Panasonic flashes with TTL capabilities. Removing the flash from the camera's hot shoe allows the photographer to create unique and dramatic lighting styles that are not possible with a traditional shoe-mounted strobe. This coiled cord measures 3', which is enough distance to accommodate hand-held lighting styles, or when keeping the flash mounted on a compact flash bracket. Also, off-camera lighting reduces the harsh shadows commonly encountered with direct on-camera flashes and gives your photographs a more natural look.

One side of the TTL cable fits directly into the camera's hot shoe to ensure that all of the camera's exposure data is maintained. The other side can be attached to any stand, tripod, or device with a standard 1/4"-20 threaded stud or flash shoe mount, and the shoe has a locking knob to ensure your equipment is secure.

    Off-Camera TTL Flash Cord for Olympus/Panasonic Cameras (3') is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't work on my Olympus EM1 Although this was advertised for Olympus, it wouldn't work on my EM1. Worked on my EM5. TTL seemed to be communicating, but it wouldn't fire the FL600R flash. Don't know why. I was going to return it, but figured never mind.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not work with Olympus FL-LM3 flash. Does not work with the small Olympus FL-LM3 flash included with the E-M1 Mark II nor the Pen-F. That flash has four pins and no center pin as with older flash units. The Vello cable made for Olympus shown only has three rear pins so the flash will not operate. It needs to look similar to the Canon flash cable that has five pins and not four. Olympus has stopped making their cable too as it only had the four-pin style (3 rearmost pins + one center.). It does work with Godox as another has said, but not with the Olympus brand.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Product for Olympus, but only one length selection Vello makes a very nice product that extends the proprietary hot shoe flash contacts, so that a Speedlite (flash) can be positioned somewhere other than right on top of the camera. All the features work, i.e. Through The Lens (TTL) exposure and driving the flash angle motor in the Speedlite when zooming in/out with the lens on the camera. For Canon/Nikon/Sony, the Vello TTL Flash Cord can be purchased in lengths of 1.5, 3, 6, and even 33 feet. For Olympus, only the 3 ft. length is available. This severely restricts its usage for studio work. Additionally, the users guide mentions that the cords should not be concatenated nor the wire replaced by a longer length cord. (i.e. not a recommended work around) A call to Gadus Group, LLC (the parent company of Vello) only mentioned that there are no active component in the flash cord and that the market size for Olympus is not large enough to justify offering all the various cord lengths. Quel dommage que ce fabricant ait des interfaces propritaires

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Vello off camera flash cord for Olympus Received this today 9/10/2018 in my mail, Late !!!! I tried it on my Olympus M10 Mark 111 and my FL660r Olympus flash. The Vello company said this would work on the B&H Photo website. Guess what ? It did not work at all !!!!!! The Olympus camera has 5 points of contact and the Vello only has 4 points of contact. I will call B&H Photo tomorrow and send it back. It seems to me that Vello could make one that would work correctly on an Olympus camera with 5 contact points. Jim, Charlotte, NC.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works. I was expecting this to work with my E-Mi Mk II + Godox Tt685o, and it does.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid build, provides full flash functionality TTL/HSS/FP I bought this cord to use with my Olympus EM5 Mark 2 and Nissin i40 flash. I used it to set up a macro photography rig where the flash needs to be off camera at a fixed distance from the lens. The Vello off Camera TTL flash cord was an excellent way to take my Nissin i40 flash off camera without the need to purchase an RC unit, and while retaining the full flash functionality, allowing me to control flash settings right from the camera as if it were directly attached. I'm happy to say that the cord allows me to use full TTL funtionality, as well as the ability to use High speed sync(HSS)/FP functionality with my camera and flash system. However, the cord DOES NOT support the latest hotshoe standard from Olympus which provides battery power for the bundled FL-LM3 flash, so you will not be able to use your bundled flash off camera with this cord.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does not work with OMD EM-1 and FL-600R Although the cord is specifically configured for Olympus cameras, it did not functioned on OMD EM-1 and EM-5 MkII with the Olympus brand flashes (FL-600R; FL-14) , but worked fine with Godox TT6850 TTL flash as well as Newer TT560 manual flash. Go figure! I've returned Canon TTL flash cord because it worked the same way, but apparently there is no difference in performance with dedicated Olympus flash cord!
