Strength:

Talks directly to the camera. Bright, lots of bounce options due to vertical and horizontel swivel. Really customizable and pretty lightweight.

Weakness:

Fully charged, recycle time is anywhere from 2-6 seconds depending on how you are bouncing. No port for dedicated power pack. You have to by the FL-50 for that.

Nice piece of equipment. It completely enhanced my E-500 and is built with the 4/3 system in mind. Really bright and has a great through. I shot from a balcony to a stage 30-40 feet away at 150mm and it lit really well. Really works well in darker shots. The infrared is way better than the strobing of the built in flash. Makes the camera focus faster. I give it a five because it delivers on what it promises.

Customer Service

Strength:

Lot's of features and options, Easy to use and versitile after learning how too. Great build quality.

Weakness:

Slow recycle time when fully fired, about 5-6 seconds. Power button is anoying and sometimes difficult to turn on. I find it tends to over expose a wee bit so i set it at -0.3 exposure compensation. Read the manual several times !!!!!

Great flash for the money, not to many flashes can match it for features and performance at this price. Has a bit of a learning curve, mostly for the features and settings. Once you learn it you will love it.

Customer Service

Olympus has superb customer support and sevice.
