The ONLY flash for the C-3030
“The FL-40 flash is the ONLY flash that really works correctly with the C-3030Z camera. If you buy it however be sure and also get the FL-BK01 handle and FL-CB01 cable! Since the 3030 doesn’t have a hot shoe like the C-2500 does. (they’ll set you back another $90 or so!) This flash upgrades your digital camera for some serious photography, it is adjustable in 30 degree increments for 270 degree pointing (full right to straight back going counter clockwise). Vertically it has five steps, 0, 45, 60, 75, 90 degrees (straight up). Comes with a “wide angle” lens (more disperse flash).” – By C. McManis
This works with the Camedia E-10, perfectly
“On the E-10, this flash is completely automatic. It adjusts appropriately throughout the zoom range. The light spread is also extremely even from edge to edge, and in the corners. The only reason I don’t give it 5 starts is that is hasn’t the recycle speed of many flashes in this price range. But, you can’t beat the quality at any price. I also love the pivoting head. Plus, it also works in tandem with the built-in flash. A real advantage.” – By “kawwwwww”

Olympus introduces the FL-40 flash, an external flash unit for digital cameras brings exceptional power and precise creative control to Olympus’ popular digital camera models. When they use the FL-40 with a built-in flash, photographers can experiment with sophisticated lighting techniques. The external unit can bounce the flash off the ceiling, for example, while the built-in unit creates a catchlight effect by illuminating the subject directly.
