    I purchased the Panasonic DMW-FL360L flash to use with my Lumix DMC-FZ200 camera . I wanted to keep with the compatibility 0f the Panasonic products . The flash worked perfectly ! I was recently shooting a wedding and I was very impressed with the versatility of this flash and how it synced with the camera. If you are using a Panasonic camera I highly recommend this flash unit for it. It may cost a little more , but it is well worth the price!

    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. And they told me it would cost more expensive to fix it, than to buy a new one.Now I have this $ dollar piece of garbage with me.Panasonic customer service is the worse. They really don't care about their clients needs.

        Had an Oly fl600r which broke and bought this to replace it. It works flawlessly with OMD-EM5 and EP5 without a hitch (whether it's attached on the camera or remotely via wireless).

        Too bad the remote TTL can be inconsistent with under exposure even with flash.

            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. There was an odd hue to some shadow areas; too early to tell whether that had more to do with the flash or cheap fluorescent lighting. This unit makes me feel more at ease about using flash if there's a need.

              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.

                      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... If you want the best flash, then spend over $, but if this is a great value for it's price. You can adjust the flash strength to be -5 or +5 and it can widen or get more sharp and narrow depending on your focal length/lens. It is powerful enough to compete with the sun and I tested it outdoors. The continuous light is also a nice bonus for setting up shots and for on-the-go videographers. It is very small, light-weight and definitely a keeper. I just hope it doesn't overheat if and when I need to fire off continuous flashes.

                        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. New features include IR wireless remote control (RC) compatibility with select Panasonic and most Olympus cameras. FL-360L also adds a manual slave flash mode that is compatible with most digital cameras, including most brands of compacts. LCD display is easier to read, and the lever-actuated hotshoe clamp is an improvement.

                          Overall I am happy with this flash. Easy menu access and TTL behaves well. Not happy with the radio control mode. Requires trigger flash from the camera, which limits what can be done in RC mode.

                          Bought this flash because it was listed by B&H as a compatible unit for my Panasonic DMC-FZ200. Was told it also was wireless by salesperson. Offered at good price. Received unit which has funtioned well when attached to hot shoe of camera, BUT, it is not wireless compatible for the FZ200. Fine print on Panasonic materials shows it is only wireless with certain cameras, and not FZ200. OK, no biggie. I'll just get an off-camera shoe cord. Not having any luck, though. Have tried two from B&H that they have recommended, but neither have worked. Note: B&H people have spend a great deal of time trying to help, but to no avail. Frustrated. Maybe I just should have bought another manufacturers equipment.

                            Flash is smaller then I expected, but has all the power needed and works great.

                            FL360L Flash - acceptable for the GH3

                              This flash is the perfect size for the GH3. The TTL and wireless functions work fine. I use the flash mainly using the bounce flash procedure - the wide angle adaptor and white card are hard to get out however. Before buying this flash unit, I was using a Nikon flash in manual mode but it was sometimes hard to set up, especially in low light situations - this flash is easier to use in TTL mode than using any manual flashes. You need to use rechargeable batteries for the best use of this flash. The LCD light can greatly improve your flash pictures but it might disturb your subject when shooting portraits - but the output of the LCD is variable. I feel this flash, with a lot of batteries, will allow me to replace a very heavy and large rig consisting of a Nikon D3s and a Nikon 28-70 lens when photographing events - my only issue is not having an external battery pack when using the smaller rig.

                              What I don't like about the flash:
                              1. no connections for using an external battery pack - since Panasonic made such a big deal about the GH3 replacing a DSLR, they should have made provisions for using one.
                              2. the interface is a little funky - not as good as the usability of the latest generation of Nikon flashes
                              3. recycle time can be long if the full power of the flash is used - longer than 2-4 seconds here - best to setup the camera properly with a high ISO if you are faced with this situation - 800 ISO on the GH3 is perfectly acceptable

                              Works flawlessly, right out of the box, synchs w my Panasonic Lumix Camera. No more red eye, flash is powerful, yet not harsh at close distances, modulates luminosity perfectly!

                              I have both the GH3 and EM1 and this one works on both. Love the compactness and power. It does seem to take a little more time to recycle than my Oly Flash though. Not sure why.

                                I just recently purchased this external flash. Works great with my camera. I am anxious to use it more. It does excatly what I wanted it to do. Price was better at B&H than the local camera stores.

                                I really like this flash. I use it on my Panasonic G3 camera. I recently took photographs of my wife's abstract art pieces using this flash with a Vello light bouncer and then results were fantastic. It's very versatile with variable bounce angle and 180 degrees of side-to-side rotation. It is not bulky and is well built. I previously tried a Metz and Vivitar flash but was so disappointed in their poor build quality that I returned them. The only thing I didn't like was the difficulty in pulling out the wide angle diffuser from the flash head...neat bonus though.

                                I purchased this flash to take photos of my wife's large abstract paintings. Using the flash on my Panasonic Lumix G3 camera resulted in great photographs with good illumination. It worked perfectly as soon as I attached it to the hot shoe..no adjustments were necessary on the flash or camera. I tried a Vivitar and Metz flash but returned them because of poor quality workmanship. This flash is solid, well built and has outstanding performance.
