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

  • 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

  • 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

  • Excerpt: Not a strong flash, but is flexible....can be turned and bent. It also works well as a slave to the flash that comes with the OMD EM 1.

A Mate to the EM-1

Raincheck, B&H Photo
19 August 2014
  • Excerpt: It is a lot like the EM-1. Built like the big guys, but smaller, lighter, a little more portable, a little less powerful. Fits well on the EM-1, like they were built for each other. Must have felt big on the smaller micro 4/3 cameras that it was released for. I am not a pro, so I can't speak to pro needs. I have used it mostly for portraits. On camera. Off camera with TTL and Wescott pocket soft box.

Perfect for Olympus Stylus 1

Ed, B&H Photo
30 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Just "downsized" from DSLRs due to physical problems and needed a flexible on/off camera flash with enough power for reasonable dark plus fill at a distance in daylight. This flash has performed well and is totally compatible with the size of the camera.

Nice addition to my kit

  • Excerpt: I am not an experienced flash shooter. I occasionally break out the one that came with my E-M1 only to be disappointed in it's performance. I bought this flash to try and learn more about incorporating it into my shooting arsenal. I had been trying to freeze the action of hummingbirds in flight - with the slow recycle rate on my kit flash and my old FL-14 it was literally hit or miss. I started on auto and got results with this flash right away.

Excellent flash for OM-D E-M5

Richard, B&H Photo
8 May 2014
  • Excerpt: The small size and light weight of the FL-600 make it a great companion to the OM-D E-M5. Although a stop less than the FL-50R, it produces plenty of light and fits into my camera bag. It supports sutter speeds up to 1/200 in standard mode and above that in super FP mode. The LED works as either a movie light or a focus assist light. The FL-600 works very well on the camera either as a single flash or as a commander for the FL-50R and the little FL-300.

Excellent Flash for OMD EM-1

10 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I really like this flash; it is power and the video light is great for a little fill during movie recording. Also, it can be controlled as a slave in RC mode and works pretty well.

Small andcompact flash

Jannie, B&H Photo
10 February 2014
  • Excerpt: The small in size flash is great with the OM-D camera. It is easy to get to know - how to use, and so far the pictures look great. Although it is not as powerful as bigger flash guns.
