    Panasonic DMW-FL360L reviews

    LUMIX DMW-FL360L External Flash is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 56.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built like a tank 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Panasonic Flash Yet 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great wireless flash! I use the FL360L primarily in Wireless/RC mode. The greatest thing about this flash is its automatic switching from TTL-A mode to RC/Wireless mode when it is removed from the hot shoe of the Lumix GH3. How cool is that! The other wireless system I have been using for years requires re-programming camera and flash when changing from hot-shoe to wireless mode. One puzzlement that caused me to give it 4 stars rather than 5 is that the LED light, which I keep turned off when the FL360L is on my GH3 hot shoe, blinks continuously when the unit is removed from the camera. No one at Panasonic tech support - I tried both phone and e-mail support - could provide a solution for or an explanation of the annoying blink every 2 seconds.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great, way beyond my expectations 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!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent flash for GH3/4 I'm a videographer who was suddenly asked to take full body portraits during an event. Yikes! So I grabbed my GH4, two softbox CFL banks that I use for interviews, and this FL360L flash to mount directly above my camera. The results were fantastic. The cycle refresh rate on the FL360L was fast and gave me great front fill. Since I'm not a photographer and know nothing about flashes, I set everything on full auto and was pleasantly surprised by the photos. Only four AAs lasted me all day.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great flash I bought this to use with my GH3 and other M43 cameras. I shot a wedding using it for fill lighting and was pleased with the results. The wireless function is easy to set up and use. The only issue I have is with the control dial. It is too small and the reason I did not give a 5 star rating. The rest of the features make up for the small dial. A big plus is that I can use my Canon off camera cable and retain full function of the flash. Olympus has a rebadged version, but it sells for $ more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent flash I have been a Canon user for years, and always had a bit of trouble with their flash system. I recently bought a Panasonic FZ1000, and decided to get this flash for it. I am very impressed with this flash, and the Panasonic system in general. So far, there hasn't been a single photo taken with this flash that didn't come perfect, or so close that any variance was insignificant. I couldn't be happier with the flash. It also has a video light that I admit I haven't tried yet, except to test it to see if it actually worked. I didn't purchase it for the video so if it does well with that it'll be a bonus. The flash is powerful enough to cover a 12x12 foot room to a depth of 12-15 feet easily. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Videographer shooting stillls I am the photo sponsor for AMA Tampa Bay and haven't used a flash in years so I had to order one quickly to fulfill the event sponsorship. After a short learning curve, I used the flash successfully with my GH4. It worked flawlessly. I am thinking of buying 1 - 2 more to use as slave for wider coverage in dark situations. The staff at B & H was extremely helpful in quickly recommending the best option.
