Is anyone interested in having me convert your Olympus T-8 or T-10 ring flash so it will work with TTL control on ยต4/3rds cameras, using the FC-1 flash controller?

I am not a dealer, but I would like $25 per hour to do these conversions, plus my actual parts costs.

Or you can roll your own, using directions I posted here: https://www.mu-43.com/threads/converted-olympus-t-10-and-t-8-ring-flashes.92166/#post-1026296

Hi Jan, welcome aboard!

Interesting project.
I have the T10 and its cross pol filter, a lovely device. Browsing the mu-43 forum thread you linked I found your coin images. Cross pol is not very adequate for metals if you really want to see the typical metal look and not the dirt and rush. I they where top quality polarizers metal would show just black, because they aren't you can see the blue-purple tint.

The cross pol T10 really shines with many biological subjects that produce both specular and diffuse reflections because it cuts off most of the specular letting pass the diffuse unpolarized, randomly polarized or plane rotated reflections.

I would like to have it converted for Canon E-TTL but I don't think it could be worth the effort -even if doable- because cross pol eats so much light that usually I fire it at maximum power

Here you can see some shots I took several years ago:
