FL-36R Electronic Flash

Olympus has developed an original wireless communication system called 'RC data transfer', which enables the use of advanced lighting effects. When used together with a compatible interchangeable lens camera, it can produce subtle lighting effects just the way you want.  The FL-36R enables uniform lighting in the picture area and high brightness control accuracy. The head can be freely rotated both vertically and horizontally and the firing angle can be automated according to the attached lens, or set manually for high functionality.
