    Olympus FL-LM3 reviews

    FL-LM3 Flash is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basic Flash for Panasonic GX8 I wanted a basic flash for the Panasonic GX8, one that was small and didn't require batteries. I hope to really learn flash photography and will then treat myself to a more advanced flash. I read somewhere that this flash would work with certain Panasonic cameras and it does with the GX8. Do know that it does NOT work with the GX7. I have used the flash (on the GX8) and it is better than the built-in one on the GX7. It doesn't have any advanced features, but does tilt and rotate. Someone wrote about having to shave off an edge to get it to fit -- I did not, it fit the hot shoe right out of the box.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Flash is the Weakest Link in the System I recommend keeping a back up flash because of the issues I had with my flash. I use them primarily in a housing for underwater photos. No matter what, make sure the flash will go off BEFORE you put it in the housing. It has to be jiggled into position, and if it is not in perfectly, it will not fire. Test one more time in housing. Underwater, nothing you can do. We had a flash not function shortly after purchase; in addition to that it got extremely hot. Very, very hot. The warranty return through the manufacturer is really complex and time consuming. I hadn't bought the first flash from B&H, but I have purchased all my other gear here because I trust them to take care of me.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Possibly a hot shoe connection design issue? Can't expect much from a tiny kit flash like this, but I generally like it. However, sometimes I have to wiggle it while its secured in the hot shoe... anyone else having this issue? Other than that, I'd give it four stars, I like what it can do, especially directional. Wasn't expecting much from a tiny kit flash like this, but was pleasantly surprised. Wondering if the connection problem is a design issue.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from From advice I read, I purchased this flash for a Pen E-PL5 Since I bought a new lens for my Olympus Pen E-PL5, (12-40mm Pro) the old flash 4FS1 cannot be used. I bought the Olympus FL-LM3 after reading that this flash would work on my Pen E-PL5. It doesn't. Olympus should make a compact flash (not one that you need a left hand held bracket - because the proper flash it relatively large) to fit old cameras. This flash (FL-LM3) is standard equipment for the new Pen F series so why not one for those who don't upgrade cameras every year or so!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have accessory. I'm absolutely pleased with the capabilities I've experienced using this FL-LM3 flash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Olympus Flash I use the Olympus flash to trigger my Olympus 900 flash unit via RC. Of course, the flash will set off an older Olympus flash as it is a light slave. The FL+LM3 and the 900 work together through the camera. Best combo ever in my very humble opinion.
