FL-50R Electronic Flash

FL-50R 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 digital camera, it can produce subtle lighting effects just the way you want. This flash comes with multiple channels to prevent interference with other users, multiple flash modes, and a slave function compatible with a large studio flash. Features that provide powerful support for professional photographers.

Designed Specifically for Digital Cameras

This flash is designed specifically for digital cameras by providing the ideal brightness control and accurately controlling the amount of flash in 1/8 EV steps and minimising the decrease in the amount of light at the periphery of the image.

Wireless Multi-flash Photography

This flash makes use of a proprietary wireless communication system called 'RC data transfer'. This enables setting of wireless flash control, and it can be used together with the FL-36R for control. In addition, it comes with four channels to prevent interference with other users.
