Works FIne

  • Excerpt: Works just fine. Very small and a perfect match for micro 4/3 size. Flash metering on OM-D series camera seems less accurate than previous Nikon system.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight

Fragile hot shoe

  • Excerpt: Good flash unit. Have had for a month or so. HOWEVER, on a recent trip the flash sheared right off the camera while in the trunk of my rent a car. Minimal load placed on hot shoe. Took back to place of purchase, they would not replace, have sent back to Olympus for warranty or repair.
  • Cons: Not Durable At All

Why have Olympus not yet released a 'Pro' unit?

  • Excerpt: Basic design and quality okay except the mounting shoe and the battery door - mounting shoes should all be metal these days. The interface is quite good (albeit the fonts are small). Reasonably easy to use given the excellent camera touch screen interface.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Control Interface, Lightweight
  • Cons: Batter Door, Mount Shoe Plastic, No Power-pack Input, Poor Radio Interface, Tiny Fonts, Weak Output

Small and Mighty

12 April 2015
  • Excerpt: Compared to the FL-50r flash I also have, the FL-600r is only half the size, but still puts out a lot of light. It is the right size to fit on my OM-D camera. I would give this 5 stars except they have packed too many functions into a too small control wheel.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output, Versatile
  • Cons: Tiny Little Muti-function

Good Overall Flash

Sunsetphotos, B&H Photo
20 February 2015
  • Excerpt: My primary use for this flash is as an on camera bounce. It is full featured yet small and pairs well with the Olympus OMD series cameras including the E-M10. The catch light plate is too small to be useful, but that can be easily remedied with a DIY solution or flash accessories.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Heavy

Not a bad flash, but has one issue!

  • Excerpt: The flash is of very good build quality and is quite powerful for its small size. I have one issue with this flash, and that's when it's used for TTL. The small video light on the front below the main light blinks off and on.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output

Nice compact flash

18 January 2015
  • Excerpt: Nice unit. I have only used it to take family snaps over christmas so far, but it seems to be working as advertised. I am coming over to Olympus from Canon and their flash system isn't as refined. Finding out how to use all of the features isn't easy as the Manual isn't very informative.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Versatile

Good flash and ease

Ter, B&H Photo
15 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I was pleasantly surprised at how good this flash is and how easy it is to set up wirelessly.Being new to 4/3 mirrorless and having a DSLR I was hesitant. Just as happy and even more so with how much easier it is to use and set up.

Works Well

Karen C., B&H Photo
3 November 2014
  • Excerpt: This flash unit works great and has increments for increasing the output. I will be using it directly on the camera, so I can't comment on its wireless capabilities. The manual is virtually worthless, though. I had to do a lot of trial and error to figure out how to operate the unit.
  • Pros: Powerful Output

Great Light weight Flash

19 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Wonderful performing flash unit on an Olympus Micro Four Thirds camera. Exposures are accurate. I have used it for macro work as a slave unit, and on the camera with models, with flawless exposures. Control take some figuring out, but pretty intuitive in a short time.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Versatile
