Modifying the Olympus LED Ring Guide Accessory
I recently acquired the excellent little Olympus Stylus Tough TG-4 and the LED guide ring light accessory. I was excited about this little accessory in particular because I thought it would turn the little on-board flash into a ring light. It doesn't. It's a woefully inadequate LED light guide (Obviously, since that's what it's called) which I think is useful only for the in camera image stack function (the other reason I was excited about this little camera. Also, it does underwater stuff). So I got to thinking. It was an expensive little thing to put in a draw and never use again (Aussies pay more) and I really wanted a little ring light on my TG-4. The only solution was to pull it apart and cut it up. I'm pretty sure I can get it back together again... P.S. Don't buy a red TG-4, it reflects terrible redness on everything!
