  • The Olympus/OM-Systems RC compatible version of the AOI's compact strobe.

    The UCS-Q1 RC is the "smarter" version of the original UCS-Q1 strobe. The Q1 RC comes with the same specifications as the original Q1 but also adds the automated "TTL" RC and i-Macro modes that can be used with Olympus and OM-System cameras, including the TG-5, 6 and 7. All current AOI housings support this functionality via their flash triggers. The AOI Q1 RC is depth-rated to 60m and comes with a 700-lumen spotting light and 6 manual power settings for the flash. 

    Please note that if you use other camera brands than Olympus/ OM-Systems, this strobe functions as a manual strobe like the original UCS-Q1.
