To use the ring light as a strobe, your camera must be equipped with a
PC-in jack. Unlike our other Quantum flashes, such as our Qflash T5D,
the Omicron OM3 does not accommodate the household-to-miniphone sync
cable so you cannot use Pocket Wizards with this light (unless you
have a hot shoe adapter for your camera that includes a PC-in socket).
This ring flash comes with its own Turbo Compact AC Power pack that,
while plugged into the wall, allows for continuous, unlimited shooting (details here). Charging
only lasts for about 800 strobe-fired shots or 25 minutes of
continuous video shooting with the included battery pack. You may rent
additional portable Turbo3 Battery Packs, which will power the light
for 2,000 strobe shots or 90 minutes of continuous video shooting.
TTL shooting is possible with this ring light on both Nikon and Canon
camera systems but only with the use of the optional Quantum CoPilot,
which can be rented separately.

The Omicron OM3 Flash and Video Ring Light uniquely provides both
strobe and continuous lighting suitable for photographers and
videographers alike. With the provided box bracket and 15mm rod-ready
rail mount, this ring light can be adapted for both 35mm cameras (even
pro bodies and gripped cameras) and video cameras (even those
connected to shoulder mount rigs, such as the Redrock DSLR Field
Cinema Deluxe Bundle). The 80 color-balanced LEDs that comprise this
ring light allow for chromatically correct lighting and produces 60
degrees of diffused lighting ideal for glamour and fashion
photography. For the videographers, auto-tracking when using the ring
light in continuous mode keeps your subject evenly lit by adjusting
the light output as you dolly in or out, over a 2 to 1 change in
distance. The OM3 is compatible with lenses up to 3.9" in diameter.
