Product Details

The AOI UCS-Q1RC strobe has a Guide Number of 22 and a beam angle of 85° (with supplied diffuser) and a colour temperature of 5,600K (5,000K with diffuser).

The AOI UCS-Q1RC also has 2 LEDs built into the strobe head that provide a 700-lumen modelling light.

This latest model of the AOI Q1 strobe is now equipped with TTL for Olympus / OM System RC camera strobe control.

Olympus / OM System cameras are equipped with Olympus RC Flash mode and the AOI UCS-Q1RC strobe is compatible with this RC Flash mode.

For example, the Olympus Tough TG-6 and OM System TG-7 are equipped with the RC Flash mode, simply set the camera to RC Flash Mode and the AOI UCS-Q1RC strobe to RC Flash mode and the camera will automatically choose aperture, shutter speed, and control the power output of the external strobe. In the RC mode communications between the camera and the AOI UCS-Q1RC strobe will determine the optimal strobe power and camera settings to achieve perfectly exposed images. No more guesswork, no more missed opportunities.

In addition, the AOI UCS-Q1RC can also be used in “manual” or M mode. Users can set the power adjustments through a knob on the rear control panel, choosing this mode will cater to photographers who have more exacting lighting requirements. The AOI UCS-Q1RC strobe also has an impressive recycle time of 0.85 seconds even when set to full power, making sure opportunities are not missed.

The battery compartment is secured with a screw-on cap that is sealed with two O-rings to prevent accidental flooding. Should the battery compartment flood, it does not affect the electronic compartment as the two are kept separate. The strobe is powered by two 18650 lithium batteries (not included), which offer up to 1500 flashes on a single charge and provides consistent power delivery, even at low power levels. The strobe is equipped with stand-by (after 15 minutes) and auto power-off (after 2 hours) features to conserve power and increase the lifespan of the strobe.

AOI UCS-Q1, which won the German Red Dot design award, has been upgraded to the AOI UCS-Q1-RC, which now supports RC-TTL wireless flash technology. It can measure light and automatically calculate the output flash brightness for close-up and wide-angle photos with just one click, without any further underwater adjustments.

  • True GN-22 flash index.
  • Fash recycle time of 0.85 of a second at Full Power.
  • Olympus RC Mode for perfectly exposed Images.
  • i-Macro Mode unique strobe settings for Macro Images.
  • Supports a high-speed shutter flash, helping you capture fast-moving creatures underwater.
  • Wireless connection of flash underwater for shooting various special effects.
