Make sure the flash is as tight as it can be before you take a pictuer or it could come loose and lift off!

If the flash is not sitting securely on the hot shoe when attached to the camera you may want to send the camera body to Olympus repair center for service. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3 to discuss the repair process and pricing if needed.

The Hot Shoe Flash Cable (FL-CB05) mounts to the C-8080 Hot Shoe and the opposite end attaches to the aftermarket flash bracket’s flash shoe or to a standard tripod attachment thread (1/4x20).
