Excellent

It is very excellent gear , the reason why I did not give five stars , because it has only one place to accommodate only single optic cable , otherwise it is very good reliable and among its competitors it has lot of features .

UFL-3 Light is fabulous!

Easy to use other than placing the battery cover back. One needs to read the instructions for better use.

question

is this strobe compatible in RC mode with TG-3?
Asked by: Anonymous
The RC mode on the Olympus UFL-3 strobe does work with the Olympus Stylus TOUGH TG-3. Since the slave trigger is set back on the UFL-3 you will need to still connect the strobe to the cameras built-in flash with the Sea & Sea 17.8 Fiber-Optic Cable II: <a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?N=11015907&InitialSearch=yes&sts=pi target= _blank >http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?N=11015907&InitialSearch=yes&sts=pi</a>Since the TG-3 does not have a fiber optic cable port you will have to create one with the Sea & Sea Strobe Mask Set: <a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/510287-REG/Sea_Sea_SS_50109_Strobe_Mask_Set.html target= _blank >http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/510287-REG/Sea_Sea_SS_50109_Strobe_Mask_Set.html</a>
