Hi,

This new item from Olympus is not a strobe but it' actually a video light.

It sure looks like a strobe. The wire looks suspiciously like a fiberoptic sensor for the camera's built-in flash to give TTL control. There would be no reason for such a wire with a video light.

This isn't an Olympus product, it's U.N. Corporation's SF-128 strobe, and yes, it's a fiber synch cable. I'm afraid that's about all I know about it however.

Got a reply from other users
1. this is not olympus, it is by U.N. Corporations
2. It has only 2 level GN 5,10
apparently not too flexible

Think i got this mixed up with what i thought
were new uw lights that olympus were supposed to launch
for the pt series
