Fast Recycling Times but inconsistent

  • Excerpt: I started using this compared to my panasonic FL400 becasue it recycles faster and is powerful enough for my sue already. However, there are times when the flash does not adjust the output and it becomes too white. Having said that, I will continue using this becasue it is lighter and aonly uses 2AA batteries.
  • Pros: Attach Securely, Powerful
  • Cons: Harsh Color

Compact size and light weight

  • Excerpt: Easy to carry and easy to use. Compact size matches my small micro 4/3 camera(Lumix GF1). Great for indoor party shots. If you need bounce capability, you should go for higher G/N.
  • Pros: Attach Securely

Good Quality but Panasonic Overcharges

NYBroker, B&H Photo
26 June 2011
  • Excerpt: This is a good quality basic flash and it is certainly a big improvement over the built in unit. For simple flash photography it will do the job just fine. However considering the sophistication of the LX 3 it is a real step down. No bounce or controls and it's expensive for the limited control. But you are locked into the system.
  • Pros: Attach Securely, Durable

Compact size and expansive flash

FotoFox, B&H Photo
29 March 2011
  • Excerpt: I ordered this flash unit to augment the built-in flash on my new Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 digitial camera. The built-in flash is fine for close-ups, but I needed wider coverage to illuminate larger groups or spaces. This little flash unit works great, and it compliments and enhances the features on my Lumix GF2. The quality of construction is also exceptional.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Good Value for the Money but....

Nikkodog, B&H Photo
16 January 2011
  • Excerpt: This flash makes a great addition to the LX5 or probably any other Lumix camera in the compact size lineup. It's a good value for what B&H sell it for but I wouldn't say that if paying what most other on-line sites are charging. Having said that, it's very simple and easy to use and the size makes it not much of a bother to bring along just about anywhere.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Flexibility is poor

it is what it is

  • Excerpt: A small compact flash unit - does the job but has a fixed position (does not tilt) and there are no diffusers that fit on the unit. I made a little flash cozy" out of cheese cloth - not very high tech but it worked great.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable
  • Cons: Does not tilt
