Underwater photography made even easier
In a press release, OM Digital Solutions Co., Ltd. announced the availability of the AOI UCS-Q1RC, a special edition of the hugely successful AOI UCS-Q1 for the Japan market.
OM Digital Solutions Co., Ltd. or “OM” digital cameras are equipped with Olympus Wireless RC Flash System or commonly known as RC Flash mode. The new underwater strobe from AOI Limited, the AOI UCS-Q1RC is compatible with the RC Flash mode.
Even the diminutive Olympus Tough TG-6 is equipped with the RC Flash mode and can be used even when housed in an underwater housing, such as the Olympus PT-059.
When used on the TG-6, simply set the flash to RC Flash mode. The camera will still automatically choose aperture and shutter speed, but now it will do so factoring in the use of external strobe. Subsequently, communications between the camera and the UCS-Q1RC will determine the optimal strobe power and camera settings to achieve perfectly exposed images. No more guesswork, no more missed opportunities.
The “AOI UCS-Q1RC” also delivers a punch despite its compact size. The strobe produces a maximum light output of Guide Number 22.
In addition, the AOI UCS-Q1RC can also be used in “manual” or M mode. Users can set the power adjustments and are done through a knob on the rear control panel, choosing this mode will cater to photographers who have more exacting lighting requirements. The UCS-Q1RC also has an impressive recycle time of 0.85 seconds even when set to full power, making sure opportunities are not missed.
