RC1 TTL Receiver Underwater Photos

The RC1 TTL Receiver provides incredibly fast and accurate strobe exposure with popular Olympus and Panasonic models including the Olympus Tough TG-5.

In RC or wireless mode, the camera evaluates the light available in the scene and determines the amount of artificial flash necessary to properly light the photo. This information is communicated to the RC1 receiver by a short series of light pulses.  In addition to the improvement in image quality, the RC/wireless system extends camera battery life, shortens time between shots, and keeps the camera running cooler.

These images were taken in Bonaire using the Olympus Tough TG-5 camera in Underwater Housing # 6233.06. Dual DS161 Strobes were used for the two wide angle images and a single DS51 Strobe was used for the macro images.
