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 high guide number of 50 meters/165 feet at 42mm (35mm equivalent of 84mm) and ISO 100 provides the power of a dedicated flash that a pro wants, while the built-in wide panel makes it possible to deliver effective brightness at a focal distance of 8mm (equivalent to 16mm with 35mm camera). Light emitting and brightness control circuitry achieve uniform lighting in the picture area and high brightness control accuracy.
Works with Olympus E-System Digital SLR cameras, the Stylus XZ-2, S Series, C Series and SP Series cameras with the TTL Hot Shoe. Also fits on and works with FP-1 Power Flash Grip. Also works with XZ-1, but can only be used as wireless flash -- cannot attach to XZ-1 body.
