question

Hello, can this flash be held off camera and triggered remotely by the Olympus E-P5 without needing to buy any further equipment? i.e. can the E-P5 trigger it by itself, and maintain TTL?Secondly, how powerful is this flash compared to the Canon 430EXII, which I have experience with? I checked the specifications on both flashes but the numbers are for different mm lengths, not sure how to interpret them. I just want to know if this flash is comparable in terms of pure light produced as the Canon one. Thanks.

Yes the Olympus FL-600R Wireless Electronic Flash is fully compatible with the Olympus E-P5 camera. You can use it directly on the camera's hot shoe. If you were to add the Olympus FL-LM1 Flash to your E-P5 camera, you could then control the FL-600r off camera wireless in TTL mode. Or you could use 2 FL-600r flashes, one on the camera and the other one of camera. As far as power goes, it would be very similar in light output compared to the Canon 430 flash.

question

Can I disable the flash zoom while flash is attached to camera (with TTL cord)? I am using the flash for product photography, with TTL. I've attached the flash to the camera with a TTL cord. I want to control the zoom angle of the flash manually. The FL-600R allows you to set the zoom angle manually, but then it reverts back to auto when the power is cycled. This is a major pain because the flash is in a hard to reach position. So... is there a way to disable the zoom, so that it STAYS disabled?
Asked by: Ken
To change the zoom setting and stay you need to press the zoom part of the rear dial.The zoom setting will flash briefly, while it is flashing, rotate the rear dial to desired setting:Settings without the M icon will result in zoom head and maximum output changing as your lens focal length changes to ensure optimum performance and adequate frame coverage of the flashThose with M icon are fixed as set by you.

Is this flash line of sight wireless or can this ...

Is this flash line of sight wireless or can this be used with the Fl-900 or the Olympus trigger in groups of flashes?
Asked by: Marc
The wireless signal used by the Olympus FL-600R Flash (B&H# OLFL600RF) is an optical pulse and thus does require a line of sight for actuation. It may be used in up to three groups. Yes, it's compatible with the Olympus FL-900R Electronic Flash (B&H# OLFL900R). It may be used with compatible Olympus IR triggers.

question

Rumor has it, that his flash is quite similar to the Panasonic DMW-FL360L. Is this correct? would it work with the FZ200 etc? If so, it seems to be s slightly more desirable unit, since it has 4 batteries rather than 2, this reducing charging time and extending # of flashes?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Olympus FL-600R could be triggered when placed on a Panasonic FZ200, but it would limited to use in manual mode only.
