One side of the TTL cable fits directly into the camera's hot shoe to ensure that all of the camera's exposure data is maintained. The other side can be attached to any stand, tripod, or device with a standard 1/4"-20 threaded stud or flash shoe mount.
This coiled cord measures 3' (1 m), allows for handheld shooting at arm's length, and provides extra length for flash brackets with longer positioning arms.
I bought this to use With my strobe frame, and it works as designed.
Very satisfied so far. Packaging as good as any solid third party accessory. Looks and works as an original manufacturer's cable. Used it twice only so cannot say anything about long term reliability but from the look and feel I don't expect it to be any different compared to Olympus made cable
Good cord, TTL works as it should
This works on my Olympus OMD-EM5 with a Neewer TT560 Speedlite. The camera end goes on with the cord coming out the front and the flash end also has to go on with the cord in the front. I have not tested the TTL function of the cable since the TT560 is a manual flash. That's all I wanted for the price, so I'm happy. I took off a star because I find the cord to be unnecessarily thick and stiff.
So far, so good. Just got this cord. It works perfectly with my Minolta A2 camera and my Minolta 3600HS flash. Minolta was bought by Sony, so I was a little worried it may not work. This is a big heavy duty looking cord. There is really too much cord for my application, but I can deal. My only other worry is that it will stop working prematurely as many other reviews state. My plan it to put as least stress on the cord as possible. I will not bend it at the connections, nor stretch it to the max and hope for the best. I will follow up later as I use this cord more.
