Electronic Flash FL-36R

Made possible by the implementation of compatibility with the "Olympus Wireless RC Flash System" based on the Olympus-original "RC data transfer" wireless communication format, this function is available when these flashes are used with the new E-3 D-SLR camera.* Exclusively designed for digital, the light emitting and brightness control circuitry achieve uniform irradiation in the picture area and high brightness control accuracy. The FL-36R has a rotary head that can be rotated in four directions.
he irradiation angle is set either by automatic zooming according to the interchangeable lens or by manual setting, while the built-in wide panel makes it possible to effectively cover the wide irradiation angle required with a focal distance of 8 mm (equivalent to 16 mm with 35 mm cameras).
Powered by two "AA-size" batteries, the FL-36R exemplifies the compatibility of high performance and compact size.

* The E3 is the only camera compatible with the Olympus Wireless RC Flash Systems as of October 2007. The traditional clip-on Flash Systems is usable with any camera model.

Designed Specifically for Digital Cameras

The FL-36R provides the precise lighting adjustment needed for digital photography. Intensity can be controlled in 1/8EVsteps. Designed specifically for use with digital cameras, it minimizes the decline in light intensity at the periphery of the image.

Wireless multi-flash photography

Made possible by the implementation of compatibility with the "Olympus Wireless RC Flash System" based on the Olympus-original "RC data transfer" wireless communication format, this function is available when these flashes are used with the new E-3 D-SLR camera. In addition, four information channels are available to prevent interference with the control of other users.

Slave function

The slave function allows these flashes to be used with other Olympus SLR cameras with manual flashing capability and SP Series compact cameras with slave mode operation capability. In addition, they can also be interlocked with a large flash in the studio.
