Exclusively designed for digital, the Olympus FL-50R Dedicated Flash is a powerful, intelligent flash. It is the ideal companion to the Olympus E-3 digital SLR, which features Olympus' newly-developed RC Data Transfer System that transmits data optically. This significantly reduces the power consumption of the built-in flash when being used as the system commander. A wide range of flash-related settings can be easily accessed and adjusted using the camera's LCD display. Wireless flash control is available in three groups, allowing flash mode and compensation settings to be set independently for each group, enabling ultra-precise illumination.
The Olympus FL-600R Flash is a powerful, intelligent flash featuring a maximum guide number of 118 (feet) / 36 (meters) at ISO 100 and 164 (feet) / 50 (meters) at ISO 200. Recharge time has been reduced compared to the previous FL-36R and FL-50R flashes, and flexibility and operability have been increased. The FL-600R is the first Olympus flash system ever to feature a built-in LED video light perfect for movies or still photo shooting under difficult lighting conditions. The FL-600R also adds wireless flash functionality with a built-in commander function, and can also function as a slave.
The Olympus FL-14 Electronic Flash is an easy-to-operate external flash unit designed specifically for the Olympus PEN. With an equivalent GN (Guide Number) of 45 (feet) / 14 (meters) at ISO 100, you can accomplish flash shooting with stable light and optimum brightness. The stylish metal finish of the FL-14 flash gives the camera a retro look reminiscent of the classic Olympus Pen F. The FL-14 not only expands shooting oppertunities under low light conditions, it also adds creative options in nearly every situation.
The Olympus FL-300R Compact Flash functions on all PEN cameras as a bounce flash as well as a wireless remote flash with enough power for most every shooting situation. It is designed in silver to match the new PEN lineup. Lightweight yet powerful, this compact flash unit enables versatile and creative lighting options -- even in tricky, low-light conditions. There are no annoying cables either, thanks to its remote control (RC) wireless functionality. The design also features a bounce head for indirect flash set-ups and regulated lighting close to distance objects. The FL-300R flash has a guide number of 91 (feet) / 28 (meters) at ISO 200 and can be controlled directly from the camera LCD. As well as being easily portable in any camera bag, its sleek exterior and stylish silver finish also matches perfectly with the classic look of the latest PEN models. The FL-300R features an integrated wide panel to cover the field of a Micro Four Thirds lens with a focal length as low as 9mm.
For macro lighting control, choose the Olympus STF-22 Twin Flash. To get the exact lighting you want, twin flashes can be set at any desired angle and can be fired as a single flash or simultaneously. Designed for macro flash photography, this twin flash has a GN of 22 (at ISO 100) for both lights and GN of 12 (at ISO 100) for one light. The included FS-FC1 Macro Flash Controller facilitates macro photography using TTL Automatic Flash and is simple to mount on the E System camera. The included SR-1 Shoe Ring allows the angle of each light to be adjusted.
For soft, even close-up flashes, choose the SRF-11 Ring Flash. To allow shadow-free close-up photography, this flash unit uses a circular tube as its light source and is ideal for medical and macro photography. The ring flash head provides uniform, shadow-free illumination for macro photography, providing outstanding results in dermatology and dentistry and anywhere something needs to put on record. It is also ideal for special effects in professional fashion or portrait photography. Guide number 26 feet/11 meters at ISO 100.
The Olympus FP-1 Flash Power Grip, designed for the FL-50 flash, can be used with the flash unit's integrated power supply to enable more shots to be taken and to decrease the flash recycle time. Can be used in combination with the SHV-1 High Voltage Flash Set and FL-50 to provide fast flash charging for an extended number of shots. Head is rotatable 180 degrees for added versatility.
