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 an interchangeable lens 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, a slave function compatible with a large studio flash, and automatic zooming of the firing angle in accordance with the attached lens features that provide powerful support for professional photographers.
