Olympus FL-CB02 reviews

FL-CB02 Hot Shoe-TTL Cable is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly made - doesn't work for me My gear: OM-D E-M1 and 600R flash. Everything is fine with the flash mounted on the camera hot shoe. When mounted on the FL-BK01 bracket and connected with this cable, the flash will not go into TTL mode. If I jiggle the cord on top of the hot shoe end, it will eventually connect and synch with the camera. allowing setting TTL mode. But such manipulation of the cord may also fire the flash. And under no circumstances will zooming the lens zoom the flash head when connected via this cord. Obviously the cord is undependable and unusable. It's clearly cheaply made because 4 simple connections should not be so flimsy. I should have been more thorough in testing it when I got it instead of waiting until I needed it. Maybe when I hit the lottery I'll buy another copy and try it, but until then it rules out using a bracket. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for OMD-EM1 I bought this to provide TTL flash control between OMD-EM1 and the Olympus flash FL-600R when connected to the Olympus FLBK01 bracket. Works great, reduces chance for red eye reflection, and this set up provides a second balanced left had grip via FL-BK01 bracket for camera/flash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great with E-620 I bought this cable to go with a FL-BK01, FL-36R, and E-620, and the entire setup works great. The cable mounts quickly and securely, and (given it's a TTL cable,) allows me to utilize all the features available for my flash and camera.
