Summary: I was using the smaller Olympus flash unit and thought it worked great. Was I ever wrong, this flash is worth it's weight in gold especially with the way it meets with the camera (Auto) Wireless flash operation. For portraits it's one of the best units ive used.
Summary: I bought this flash as my first "big" flash. It was a bit intimidating when I pulled it out and looked at it for the first time. A lot of buttons for a flash!! But the manual was very easy to understand and now I have no trouble using the flash. Great product!
Summary: I bought this flash along the new E-520. It´s the right flash, it is powerfull, fast connection and communication to the camera via hot-shoe, fast response. It's remote control (RC) works great and provides right lightning where it's needed. Thus one can take creative photographs easyli.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Clean, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Quiet
Summary: Used this flash for a night time shoot and it work very well off the camera. Very impressed with it and it comes with some great accessories. Also own an FL-50 TTL, but this is flass works the besty with my E-3.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast Recycling, Lightweight
Summary: I love taking pictures and when i saw this flash, i just had to have it and i have only had it for little over a week and I LOVE IT!!! I took Pictures of a 50th Birthday party and in light areas and dark rooms, it is so easy to adjust the flash and achieve the perfect picture, I would recommend this flash to everyone that is interested in purchasing a flash.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast Recycling, Quiet
Summary: The FL-50R wireless flash works great off and on the hot shoe. I recently used it at a weeding inside at night and it was perfect! It is a very powerful flash and is designed for the Olympus E series of DSLR’s. I would strongly recommend this flash for anyone that owns an Olympus E DSLR camera. It has more power than the FL-36 and the R means that it is a wireless flash that can also be used off camera.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Quiet
Summary: I used this flash with our E510, as fill light and lighting at dusk for action shots. It was excellent up to 12 meters, but didn't quite provide enough light at 15+ m (dusk shots of bumper boats, and go kart races). It's refresh time was a few seconds between shots and provided the necessary fill light.
Summary: I have used a FL-50 for several years and with an E-520 on order, and the Olympus in$tant rebate, I thought it a good time to pick up a second flash since I have been so satisfied with the FL-50. You can almost never have too much flash power, and the FL-50R is a great size flash for the output it provides. I always use Lithium batteries for the fast recycle times and the great battery power to weight ratio.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast Recycling, Lightweight
Summary: I used this on an engagement shoot outdoors about a week after I got it. Very good exposure control. I used a shoot-thru umbrella, minus 1.3 EC to fill shadows and light quality was fantastic. The only downside is that the flash can't wireleslly tell the camera that its recharged, so you have to pay careful attention to the ready lights (blinking on the front of the flash or the solid yellow light on the back of the flash).
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast Recycling, Powerful
