Olympus FL-CB05 Reviews

High quality cable to locate the flash 1-2 ft from the camer

By David
Rated 5 out of 5

I purchased this cable to allow me to position my FL-300R flash unit 12-24 inches from my Olympus OM-D E-M10 camera. Moving the flash that short distance eliminates red-eye and those annoying shadows. Since I've only had a week or so, I haven't played with it extensively. But so far, it has worked perfectly and looks to be very high quality.

It's a flash cable...

It's a flash cable... not much to say. Works with any 4/3 system, Panasonic or Olympus, micro 4/3 or regular 4/3 Seems to be excellent quality. But way overpriced for what it is.

A great cable

Since this is the only cable that works with as a hot shoe extension cable it was great that it performed perfectly. Outstanding job.

Works as expected

Using the cable with the Olympus FL-600R flash.

Out of the package quality looks good. Performs as stated. Only time will tell how it performs in different situations and it's overall durability. As my comparison, I recently replaced my Canon OC-E2 which lasted 3 years of regular use.

Does as advertised

The cable is a perfect length for use with flash brackets or RRS flash rings. Nice tight coils keep the cord from being a nuisance.

Use with any bracket.

question

The less expensive Vello version that B&H links to in the description for this Oly cable states that the Vello version will not work with Panasonic G7 or GX8. Will this Oly cable work in TTL mode with the GX8?

Yes, this hot shoe cable is compatible with the FL-600R flash, as well as any other flash unit that is compatible with the Olympus 4/3 and micro 4/3 system.
