Hello, I'm not sure this is the right forum, but here goes anyways. I'm a (more or less) proud owner of an Olympus TG-4 point and shoot and their underwater case PT-056. Recently, I bought a tray and a UFL-3 external strobe. Question 1: I am unable to get the strobe to work in the case via optical cable. If I hold the cable on the camera's flash directly, the UFL-3 discharges, but not when shooting through the case. I bought a 3rd party cable, and suspect that this might be a reason. The vendor however says that case, camera, flash, and cable work fine together. The setup is basically exactly like this: https://www.olympus.de/s/uw_usage_guide/en/setup/PT-056.html tg-4 -> pt-056 -> pfca-02 cable adapter -> cable -> ufl-3 Does anyone have any ideas? I would hate to shell out 100+ € for a fiber-optic cable if that isn't the reason Question 2: I was planning on buying a second UFL-3. If I understand correctly, I would need to have an adapter to feed two cables into the camera? Alternatively, I could use the second flash as a wireless slave. Would a second flash be worth it, and could I set everything up via FC-cable? I'm not the most experienced diver yet, but can control myself well underwater. Still I would like to be able to use TTL etc. and keep everything simple for the start. Is it even worth getting a second strobe with that camera? (I would consider replacing it sometime in the medium future depending on how things work.... ). My main interest would be in the macro type world (shrimp, nudibranchs, that kind of thing... ) Thanks in advance! JJ
Selling our Olympus TG-4 Underwater set up...just not diving like we used to. We bought this in October last year from Backscatter and dove it for about 5 dives in Little Cayman in November. Everything is in "Like New" condition and comes with the original packaging. I have included a picture of the sales receipt. We also have TTL Cables for Sea & Sea strobes that we can sell if interested. Here is a review with photos and video on the camera's capabilities: http://www.backscatter.com/reviews/post/Olympus-Tough-TG-4-Underwater-Camera-Test-and-Review Here is a link to pictures of the items. http://s748.photobucket.com/user/eyeceman/library/Olympus%20TG-4 Let me know if you have any questions...thanks!
