Off-Camera Shoe Cord OC-E3 – take your flash off-camera for better results
If you want to move your Speedlite flashgun off-camera for better results but aren’t ready to get into full wireless flash, the Off-Camera Shoe Cord OC-E3 can help.
Who is it for?
Designed for any photographer looking to quickly and simply improve the look of their flash images, the Canon OC-E3 will help you to remove your Speedlite from on top of the camera to somewhere else where you can control the location of the shadows.
- Full E-TTL, E-TTL II and manual control
- 60cm length of coiled cable
Flash on-camera can be very good in some shooting situations, but for better looking images it is best to remove the flash from on-camera and choose a different angle. This gives you much more control over where shadows and highlights fall and can drastically alter the look of the image. The Canon OC-E3 unit allows you to do this by moving the flash away from the top of the camera while still retaining all of the flash controls as if the flash was still mounted in the hotshoe.
- Full E-TTL II metering with the flash off the camera
Despite being removed from the camera the OC-E3 cable simply acts as an extension cable and therefore provides all the same flash control. E-TTL II and manual flash control is possible, as is second-curtain and high-speed sync flash as required.
