Buy this instead of the FL-14 for your E-P1 or E-P2
23 January 2010
Summary: Short and sweet review. This flash works great with your Olympus E-P1 or E-P2. It costs less than the FL-14 flash, is smaller, sits higher above the lens for less red-eye, and if you have the silver E-P1 or black E-P2 it looks better too. Although not advertised, if you check out the Olympus support web page, you will see that this flash is fully compatible with the E-P1 and E-P2.
Summary: I wanted this flash to compliment and improve my Olympus 350 Digital camera. The built in flash was inadequate for some of the photos that I wanted to take. When I found out the price of this flash from Olympus I did not want to pay as much for the flash than I paid for the camera. After looking on Amazon.com for the same flash, I happily found the SAME flash for a resonable price. The service and delivery of the flash was fast.
Summary: I bought this flash originally to use with my Olympus C-700 UZ camera because I had found that when using the Olympus wide-angle converter lens on my camera, the diameter of the wide-angle lens was so large that it blocked off the beam from the cameras built in flash. Because of this every shot I took had a big black half circle shadow across the bottom of the frame.
Summary: Works great on my Olympus Camedia 8080 wide. It is nice and small and so much better than the pop up flash on the camera. It charges fastn and has good battery life and has a detachable diffuser on the flash in package.
Summary: This is a light weight flash unit for Olympus cameras. It works as advertised to add more shooting distance over the camera's build-in flash. I bought this one because my Olympus digital camera is also light weight. It would be ridiculous to drag along a large flash unit that's bigger than the camera itself!
Summary: The flash FL-20 fit and worked great with my Olympus C-5050 digital camera. I recommend this product to anyone who has those series in the list. Amazone's shipping is fast, I got it just about 2 days.
Summary: I bought the FL-20 for my Evolt E-500 DSLR and was very disappointed that I'm actually returning it. It's just not powerful enough for a DSLR. It's good for some simple close-up shots. I would not recommend it for the E500, or probably the E300 either. Sounds like it works well with the other type of cameras. If you have a DSLR, splurge on the FL-50, which is what I am looking at doing.
Highly recommend for photographers that don't edit photos

Summary: I just bought this for Christmas because our 8 month old has such bad red eye, even with the red eye prevention feature in my digital camera. So many previous shots have had to be edited to get rid his red eye it was getting frustrating and was becoming a chore. It is great. Since I don't like to edit photos, except for the occassional overall color saturation, I knew from my 35mm photography that the best way to get rid of red-eye was an external flash / one not mounted...
