Works well as flash for LX3
“This is well-matched to the needs of the Panasonic LX3. It integrates well with the camera. It is bulky, but it is difficult to see how a smaller unit could work well. Flash angle is adequate to cover the 24mm-equivalent wide angle of the LX3… I use Energizer Ulitimate Lithium batteries which seem much more practical. At 200 ISO and f2.0 aperture the flash can reach out 50 feet for wide angle shots or 70 feet for normal angle shots. For most of my shots I use it in bounce mode, often with a bounce card, and have no trouble illuminating subjects more than 30 feet away. “ – By W. D ONEIL
