The Olympus FP-1 Flash Power Grip allows the FL-50 electronic flash to be used as a grip-on type flash powered from 4 'C' (R-14) alkaline dry cell batteries. The power from the grip can be combined with the flash's own batteries in order to charge the FL-50 at a higher speed and increase the available flash emission count. It can also be used as a grip when using the SHV-1 Flash High Voltage Set.

Note: The RG-1 remote grip cable and FL-CB01 or FL-CB02 flash bracket cable, depending on the digital camera used are required.(not included)

          Comments about Olympus FP-1 Flash Power Grip:

          This is a very well made flash bracket, sturdy and flexible however buyer beware that the integrated shutter release will only work if you also order Olympus - FL-CB01 TTL - TTL Cable AND if you have a camera with the correct flash out port (OMD does not!). Without the trigger you cannot use it as a right grip and must flip the grip in reverse to move it to the left of the camera. This bracket is ideally suited to a camera with the correct port, if you can't use the integrated shutter release then you might as well get the FLBKO1 and save $.

            Help boost the recycle time for anything requiring flash. The number of flashes with this Power Grip is almost double. Power Grip makes a great handle for securing the camera and flash. To bad Olympus does make a dedicated cable for the shutter release for the OMD EM5. Thru some study and creativity B&H stocks other cables that will make the shutter release work! (thank you B&H!)

            Comments about Olympus FP-1 Flash Power Grip:

            I was vary impressed when I took it out of the box it is vary heavy duty and easy to use, but the one big draw back is how the bracket is mounted to the camera at the base. It does not have an additonal pin to keep it from turning around on the base of the camera, so you have to keep on tighting it.

            Comments about Olympus FP-1 Flash Power Grip:

            Absolutely superb!Faster recycle times, longer battery life with NiMh cells.Modelling is almost infinitely adjustable, direct andindirect lighting.Close-up is so easy, the camera is easy to hold with orwithout the battery grip attached to the camera.Get the strap too, you'll never look back! I had one for myOM cameras too.Everything is simple to connect and use.I guess $249 sell price is a bit much to ask . . .

            Expertise: Some-time pro, keen amateur the rest of the time

            Problems Encountered: No problems at all

            Previous Equivalent Item Owned: OM Bounce grip 2

            Items I Recommend: Grip strap, good quality NiMh cells and an E3 :)
