Giving professionals the freedom and control they need to operate effectively in the studio or in the field, the FL-36R flash unit enables flash photography minus the complication of cords and inconvenient set-ups. Control is possible directly from the camera without the need for cables.
A wide range of flash-related settings can also be easily accessed and adjusted using the camera’s LCD panel as the user interface. Moreover, flash control is available in three groups, allowing flash mode and compensation settings to be set independently for each group - thus enabling ultra-precise illumination. Four remote control communication channels can be set by the user to avoid interference with other devices in the vicinity.
The Olympus FL-36R is compatible with all E-series Four Thirds cameras (wireless control is only supported on the E-5, E-3, E30, E-420, E-520 and E-620) and Pen series cameras (wireless control is not supported on the E-P1 and E-P2) .
