Made possible by the implementation of compatibility with the "Olympus Wireless RC Flash System" based on the Olympus-original "RC data transfer" wireless communication format, this function is available when these flashes are used with the new E-3 D-SLR camera.*
Exclusively designed for digital, the light emitting and brightness control circuitry achieve uniform irradiation in the picture area and high brightness control accuracy.
For enhanced lighting effects, the FL-50R comes with FLBA-1 Bounce Adapter and FLRA-1 Reflected Adapter as standard accessories.
The FLBA-1 mounts on the flash head and diffuses the irradiation light to soften the bounce light by attenuate the contours of shadows produced in bounce shooting.
* The E3 is the only camera compatible with the Olympus Wireless RC Flash System as of October 2007. The traditional clip-on flash system is usable with any camera model.
The FL-50R provides the precise lighting adjustment needed for digital photography. Intensity can be controlled in 1/8EV steps. Designed specifically for use with digital cameras, it minimizes the decline in light intensity at the periphery of the image.
Made possible by the implementation of compatibility with the "Olympus Wireless RC Flash System" based on the Olympus-original "RC data transfer" wireless communication format, this function is available when these flashes are used with the new E-3 D-SLR camera. In addition, four information channels are available to prevent interference with the control of other users.
The slave function allows these flashes to be used with other Olympus SLR cameras with manual flashing capability and SP Series compact cameras with slave mode operation capability. In addition, they can also be interlocked with a large flash in the studio.
