Olympus FL-20 User Reviews
“I just bought this flash to match with my Olympus C5050. This flash works flawlessly. Don’t be fool by its small size; this one is exceed my expectation for versatility for power, portability, and very cute too. You will save lots of battery power from your camera . This thing sure beat my Promaster 5000 series with Olympus module. If you own the Olympus C or E model this is must have thing. Highly recommended!!” – By thoang
“This flash is great; it’s added so much to my photos so they’re not so dark. It’s easy to use and uses it’s own batteries so it doesn’t drain my camera. I highly recommend this flash. “ – By Karen J. Rasmussen
light weight flash for Olympus camera
“This is a light weight flash unit for Olympus cameras. It works as advertised to add more shooting distance over the camera’s build-in flash. I bought this one because my Olympus digital camera is also light weight. It would be ridiculous to drag along a large flash unit that’s bigger than the camera itself! “ – By T. Wang
Another great olympus product
“Works great on my Olympus Camedia 8080 wide. It is nice and small and so much better than the pop up flash on the camera. It charges fastn and has good battery life and has a detachable diffuser on the flash in package.” – By Stuart Floyd
Olympus FL-20 Flas Review
“The FL-20 flash had greater output and greater coverage than the built in flash. Exposures were perfect because the flash worked with the cameras TTL metering system via the FLCB01 cable. You can even stand a little further back from the subject when shooting because the higher light output of this unit gives you greater reach. Red eye was also eliminated because by using the flash grip I offset the axis of the flash beam away from the axis of the camera lens. The FL-20 even comes with a little snap on diffuser lens you can use to widen the area of coverage of the flash beam.” – By John Uske
Olympus FL-20 Electronic Flash
“I wanted this flash to compliment and improve my Olympus 350 Digital camera. The built in flash was inadequate for some of the photos that I wanted to take. When I found out the price of this flash from Olympus I did not want to pay as much for the flash than I paid for the camera. After looking on Amazon.com for the same flash, I happily found the SAME flash for a resonable price. The service and delivery of the flash was fast. The flash is excellent and works flawlessly. I am happy and completely satisfied with this product. “ – By H. Garnier
Buy this instead of the FL-14 for your E-P1 or E-P2
“Short and sweet review. This flash works great with your Olympus E-P1 or E-P2. It costs less than the FL-14 flash, is smaller, sits higher above the lens for less red-eye, and if you have the silver E-P1 or black E-P2 it looks better too. Although not advertised, if you check out the Olympus support web page, you will see that this flash is fully compatible with the E-P1 and E-P2. “ – By Scott
