I'd like to use this as both an on-camera & off-camera flash with my Oly EM4 Mk II, as well as for an on-camera Continuous Light (with lighting distance of 10-15' with 14-150mm or 12-40mm Oly lenses) in my Oly's hotshoe. Will this work in those 3 ways?
Asked by: Robyn
The Olympus FL-900R Electronic Flash will work on and off an Olympus EM4 MK II camera. Off camera use would be with the Olympus FC-WR Wireless Radio Flash Commander, (or other compatible Olympus flash units with built in commanders), on the Fuji camera's hotshoe. The LED light on the FL-900R,is rated at 100 LUX, so, for continuous lighting use, one will experience severe light dropoff past 5 feet.

question

Does the FL-900R work fully with the Olympus Pen F camera?
Asked by: Enrique M.
I believe it will, as it is part of the latest Olympus cameras product line.It is a new item that was released together with the EM-1 Mark II I think, therefore not part of the Pen documentation.I have used it yesterday on a compact Sony camera and it fired OK, although without the full TTL features that you should enjoy on the Pen camera, if that was announced for the other flash (FL-36).
