Want a strobe or underwater flash that talks to your TG6 or TG7 and give the right amount of light? The AOI UCS-Q1RC Ultra Compact Strobe for Olympus TG6 and TG7 is perfect for it!

If you don’t have an Olympus Camera, maybe the lower cost AOI UCS-Q1 Ultra Compact Underwater Strobe is suitable for you.

Don’t be fooled by the size, this unit pack a powerful flash that matches bigger units without the bulk. The AOI UCS-Q1RC Ultra Compact Strobe has two models, with the RC mode suitable for the Olympus TG6 and Olympus TG7 underwater cameras, or without to suit other cameras without the RC feature.

What is RC flash feature? Olympus cameras have a dedicated TTL method that allows Olympus cameras to communicate with an external flash using only the light from the built in flash.  This method allows for very accurate TTL with an external flash, more than what standard TTL

For example, the Olympus Tough TG-6 is equipped with the RC Flash mode, simply set the camera to RC Flash Mode and the AOI UCS-Q1RC strobe to RC Flash mode and the camera will automatically choose aperture, shutter speed, and control the power output of the external strobe. In the RC mode communications between the camera and the AOI UCS-Q1RC strobe will determine the optimal strobe power and camera settings to achieve perfectly exposed images. No more guesswork, no more missed opportunities.

In addition, the AOI UCS-Q1RC can also be used in “manual” or M mode. Users can set the power adjustments through a knob on the rear control panel, choosing this mode will cater to photographers who have more exacting lighting requirements. The AOI UCS-Q1RC strobe also has an impressive recycle time of 0.85 seconds even when set to full power, making sure opportunities are not missed.

AOI UCS-Q1, which won the German Red Dot design award, has been upgraded to the AOI UCS-Q1-RC, which now supports RC-TTL wireless flash technology. It can measure light and automatically calculate the output flash brightness for close-up and wide-angle photos with just one click, without any further underwater adjustments.
