The FL-50R is an external flash unit that allows wireless flash settings to be controlled from the camera body. Wireless flash transmission channel settings enable selection of flash/no flash for groups of multiple flash units. In addition it allows TTL auto, auto, and manual modes to be set; offers a bounce and swivel head; and flash coverage is automatically adjusted in several steps to correspond to the image area when zooming. The FL-50 provides GN28 at a 12mm focal length (equivalent to 24mm on a 35mm camera; ISO 100) and GN50 at 42mm focal length (equivalent to 85mm on a 35mm camera; ISO 100). Item #260116-410 Wireless mode is not fully functional with the E-P1 Pen, or the E-1 or Evolt 300\330\410\500\510. Wireless Mode only works in Manual mode on the flash, not TTL. The flash will provide TTL when mounted directly on these models. Note: Wireless TTL mode is possible with the SP-560UZ, SP-565UZ, SP-570UZ and SP-590UZ. These models do not have a hotshoe. The firmware of the SP-560 UZ must be updated to provide this functionality. Firmware updates can be downloaded and installed via Olympus Master 2.x software. Replacement diffuser:
- Flash Dome Diffuser

Customer Reviews of the FL-50R Flash
November 15, 2011
Super high-tech flash
This is an OUTSTANDING flash. I thought my T-32's on their Power Bounce Grip 2's could never be beaten, but the FL-50R proved me wrong. This flash gives off an amazing amount of light, can be angled in virtually any direction - sideways, up, or down, has superfast recycle times, and automatically adjusts to yours zooms setting. This is an expensive flash, but it is worth every cent. You can not go wrong with this flash. Mounted on the optional FLBK01 it is even more amazing.
