Excellent flash unit

thythy, Adorama

  • Excerpt: Relatively light and compact flash that works well with my GX7. Packs a decent punch without being excessively top heavy. It's not as powerful as my Vivitar 285HV (about a stop and a half difference at full power) but the much lighter weight, smaller size, occasional convenience of TTL, as well as the ability to dial the power much lower in manual mode (1/128 power vs 1/16 on 285HV) make up for the difference.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output, Versatile

  • Excerpt: Nice flash. I had the older version. 4 batteries greatly improved the recycle and I like the wireless functionality.

Meets my needs well

  • Excerpt: I use flash very little because I don't like the "blasted-in-the-face" look of many flash photos. But I bought this one because I needed to cover a couple of events. This flash gave me good, well-lighted photos without blowing out some areas. I quickly felt at ease relying on it, but it has so many functions I'll need to put in study time with the manual to figure them all out.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Versatile
  • Cons: Complicated Controls

  • Excerpt: Great flash for the price. Easy to use after you read the manual and learn how to use it properly. Works great with my Nikon, witch was surprising. I bought it to use it with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4, and it works perfect.
  • Pros: Great Picture Quality, Lightweight

  • Excerpt: I have used the Flash only once, and it work correctly. Than 4 months after, when I tried to use it for the second time, the flash was not working at all.Panasonic won't change it or give me a new one, since accessory warranty period is only 3 months.I tried to fix it, and took the flash to an official Panasonic service.

Bang for your buck!

  • Excerpt: If you don't want to spend over $ on a flash, this is a great flash to get. Works great with my GH4. I warn you though, the manual says if you fire off 10 flashes within a short period of time, it tells you to stop using the flash for 10 whole minutes! Now, I tested this baby by firing the flash 25 times within 90 seconds and it didn't overheat or even say busy... So it should still be good...
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight
  • Cons: May Overheat

Best Panasonic Flash Yet

gadget2, B&H Photo
1 June 2014
  • Excerpt: FL-360L flash is a serious upgrade to the original FL-360 model, adding far more features than the obvious LED video illuminator. Using 4AA batteries allows much faster recycle time of 2s compared to 8 s for the FL-360 that uses 2AA batteries. FL-360L is no bigger and, without batteries, is a little lighter weight than the FL-360. But, FL-360L is heavier with 4AA batteries loaded.

Panasonic DMW-FL360L

Chukster, Adorama
25 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased this flash from Adorama to use primarily on my Panasonic GH3 off camera in Wireless/RC mode. It is useless as a flash for this purpose. It works fine and as expected while mounted to the hot-shoe. However, when taken off the camera the AF Lamp blinks every second or so to communicate back with the GH3. If you are in a dark room, the light is bright enough to light up the room.
