Bolt VS-570OP overview

  • 1Description

Create light around your subject or augment existing light with the VS-570OP Wireless TTL Flash from Bolt. Available here to be fully compatible with Olympus/Panasonic's TTL, including use as a wireless master or slave TTL flash, the VS-570OP allows photographers to work quickly and comfortably by knowing that settings can be easily determined with the camera's automatic metering system. This unit also has good power output with a guide number of 141' at ISO 100 and 50mm and can cover a range of focal lengths from 24-105mm using the zoom head, or as wide as 18mm with the pull-out diffusion panel. You can even control output manually with power settings from 1/1 to 1/64.

In addition to wireless TTL, the VS-570OP can be set up as a manual master with an optical pulse that features a range of 33' or a simple optical slave. Multiple sync modes are available for complete control over your images, including high-speed sync and both 1st and 2nd curtain sync settings. The flash also has a recycle time of 0.5-9 seconds and can run on either 4 AA batteries or an external power pack, thanks to the inclusion of an HV power port. Additionally, for basic off-camera use it has a standard PC sync terminal.

    Bolt VS-570OP reviews

    VS-570OP Wireless TTL Flash for Olympus/Panasonic Cameras is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from i would not buy this again I purchased this flash for my Olympus EM-1 mark II. Build quality seemed to be very good; however, I found that it would not reliably work with my Olympus TTL flash on camera. When it did work it exposed satisfactorily but it was intermittent even though the TTL notification indicated that it was communicating with the camera. it is probably a very capable manual unit but the lack of TTL exposure performance was a knock out. Returned the item and I am ordering the more expensive Oly flash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flash Perfection Bolt has a winner with this flash: rotating and tilt head, easy to read LCD and a long list of additional features. I really like the focus help when the shutter is held down 1/2 way and the red beam does its focus adjustments. This flash is very easy to set up and use, has an excellent user manual. The only negative is that Bolt does not have a protective pouch or case for the VS-570 series; I use a soft wrap for its protection.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this flash This is my first external flash that why I can't compare any other flash. this flash worked on both my Pen E-pl1 and om-d e-m10 mark II, it work ok on hotshoe and wireless when turn on rc mode and popup flash from camera,it also work with all mode Manual, TTL and high speed sync. on TTL mode it a little overexpose on e-pl1 and a little underexpose on om-d e-m10 II, no problem I use exposure compensation up down to get right expose. I'm not use this flash for everyday just for family holiday I don't know how long it last, hope it last longer.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work with camera, no help online The unit I received did not work with my Olympus OMD EM-5 (only the test flash worked.) Completely understand I may have just received a lemon, but when I tried Bolt's site for support or updates I could find absolutely nothing. Not a company I want to deal with down the road so I returned for a Olympus flash which works perfectly.
    Date published: 2017-02-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my GH4 so far I have been able to use ttl and use group a, b and c which allows me to adjust the power when the flash is off camera quickly by using different settings in a,b and c. The built in flash triggers the Bolt when off camera as long is it's in view. Working flawlessly so far and connects well when on camera as expected. For more reviews on any quality issues, I would go to a Bolt made for Canon and see their reviews.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not As Advertised I bought two of these flashes for wireless TTL for my GH4 and GX85 and unfortunately wireless TTL does not work on either camera. This seems to be a common problem after reading the reviews here. In addition the quality of the flashes is seriously lacking. When using rechargeable double AA batteries, the batteries get stuck in the flash and I have to use pliers to remove them. I would not recommend them as I'm not sure what micro four thirds camera they work with and the quality issue I mentioned above.
    Date published: 2017-05-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with the Panasonic LX100 I got it mostly for the LX100 as everything else I own is canon. Works everytime. If my triggers stop working this will be a great backup to have.
