Summary: I bought this flash to improve the pictures I take (on a daily basis) to my two children. I really like to preserve those moments for the future, and I want to have nice pictures, better that those you can take with a P&S camera. This flash has help me some, but the reason I spent the money is because I read (somewhere else) it would comunicate in TTL mode with my FZ50. Well, it doesn't.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output
Summary: I bought the Olympus FL-36R flash for my Olympus E-520. It takes 2 AA batteries which i like and it gives out a decent output. You can adjust the flash head to different angles for bounce light. So far, I am very happy with this purchase.
Summary: Great flash for the money. I am just a beginner and didn't want to spend that much on a flash for my E510. Huge difference in the quality of the photos. The recycle time is a little slow but considering the next cheapest flash for my camera was double the price i can live with it.
