8 November 2011
  • Excerpt: I bought it since I lost the original stand for my Canon speedlite 270. It fits perfect. I was told by the chatting costumer service that it will work. Olympus itself should have on their specs that is compatible.

  • Summary: Considering the automatic functions of this flash with the E-3, the price was well worth it, purchased used at KEH. When shooting weddings, this flash produced good lighting along with ambient light. I added a LumiQuest bounce adapter.
  • Pros: Reliable, quick recharge (faster than most flash units I've used), ease of use, and integration with the E-series cameras.

Photography Review
14 April 2006
  • Summary: Decent flash, but overpriced compared to Nikon's SB-800. Since the FL-50 is the only flash that will give you high speed shutter sync with an E-1, you really don't have much of a choice. That said, it performs quite well. Plenty of power for bounce and outdoor fill.
  • Pros: More power and faster refresh times than your only alternative, the FL-36
  • Cons: Expensive relative to N and C, Build quality lacking for price

  • Pros: Power, compatibility, high speed sych
  • Cons: Weight

  • Summary: Aunque existen diversos modelos de camaras digitales en el mercado(desde marcas como casio, hasta las mas "tapa amarilla") la calidad de fotografia se ve afectada en los llamados claro-oscuros, sitios con poca luminosidad.
  • Pros: Excelentes para camaras digitales
  • Cons: Creo no le funciona a aficionados
